About Antoine Thomassin

A French family with 3 children, we live abroad (USA - UK) since 2000, at the moment in the London area. We bought and transformed this property in 2008 - 2009 to make it our family Pied-à-Terre in France.

Antoine Thomassin purchased this house in 2008

Why Antoine Thomassin chose Montesquieu-des-Albères

The initial project was to find a spot spacious and inviting enough to be able to comfortably accommodate our families and friends during our holidays, and the children's term times.

We wanted sun and warmth (as many English ;0), the quiet and authentic nature without being completely isolated, the direct proximity of the Mediterranean Sea (still a matter of temperature!) with the possibility to avoid the bustle of the beaches, but also the proximity of the mountain for the large spaces and the numerous activities.

We have also found, in Montesquieu-des-Albères, an original region marked by it character and its temperament, enriched by its culture, its history and its diversity.

What makes this house unique

After 5 short years, we are still discovering many sides and activities of this region which is riddled with unexpected corners between earth and sea.

We have transformed the villa to have a large and friendly commune space, opened on the 2 terraces, with 2 distinct wings to preserve our tranquillity and that or our guests.

We laid out the office in the first floor room to be able to work there (computer - printer - telephone - Wi-Fi)

We fully fitted the villa and the studio (bedding - appliances - facilities - storage spaces - games for children...) for our comfort: this villa isn't a 'property for rent', but our home in which we like to entertain!

The detached studio can accommodate a third family or another couple. It can also be a working space (telephone, Internet access)

The irrigated garden was also completely remodelled, with delimited spaces for everyone's comfort: fenced pool area far from the relaxing terrace where we have our meals, which is quieter. Swing frame with slide for the youngest and trampoline for the children in the orchard. Open spaces between the house and the pool where kids can play ping-pong, badminton, crocket and other games laid out for them.

Beau séjour en pays catalan

  • 4 of 5

Séjour très agréable avec 6 adultes et 3 enfants dans cette belle villa, à quelques km de la côte (Argelès). Piscine protégée et chauffée (très appréciée), chambres agréables, quartier très calme. Equipements très complets avec jeux pour enfants.

Belle villa de charme et de caractère, spacieuse et particulièrement bien équipée, rien ne manque. Tout est pensé pour faciliter la vie de ses occupants. Enfants et parents ont pleinement profité du grand jardin et de sa piscine ainsi que des nombreux jeux mis à disposition. Aucune ombre au tableau, une très bonne adresse pour des vacances.

Une maison charmante ET fonctionnelle !

  • 4 of 5

0 souci / 0 défaut.

Louer une maison n'était pas une habitude chez nous; mais nous voulions découvrir cette région avec nos amis et 5 enfants.

La maison est trés bien située et charmante. On a eu beau temps (presque!) tout le temps et on a pu profiter du jardin trés agréable et de la terrasse bien située. En fait toute la maison est super fonctionnelle, facile à utiliser et tout marchait impeccable.

Les proprios sont qui plus est sympa. Demandez "Antoine" c'est lui qui m'a fait tout le programme de randonnées.

C'est le seul défaut d'ailleurs dans le coin; ça monte et ça descend !^^

Bref, mon épouse était ravie; c'est un signe qui ne trompe pas ! Bonnes vacances

A réserver sans attendre !

  • 5 of 5

Villa très agréable, beaucoup de charme et de caractère, spacieuse, très bien équipée. Le paradis des enfants (nombreux livres tous âges, jeux, trampoline, etc) et des parents (piscine parfaitement sécurisée, village très calme, voisinage d'une discrétion absolue, ...). Beaucoup de documentation disponible, très bien préparée ; tout est pensé pour rendre le séjour le plus agréable possible. Une très belle adresse pour des vacances inoubliables ; difficile de partir en fin de séjour !

De très belles vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances! Nous étions trois couples d'amis avec enfants.

La maison est grande, décorée avec beaucoup de goût et pleine de charme. Elle vient d'être rénovée, elle est très claire et facile d'entretien. Tout est très propre, les équipements sont neufs et de qualité.

Le jardin est grand et bien entretenu avec une piscine où les enfants ont pû se baigner en toute sécurité: ils ont adorés!

Le lieu est très calme, dans un petit village charmant.

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié Collioure où nous nous sommes rendus en quelques minutes de voiture ainsi que la grande plage d'Argelès pour les enfants.

Le seul petit bémol: quelques bouchons en arrivant à environ 20 km de la maison car l'axe France-Espagne était très chargé, mais ensuite plus aucun souci de circulation (pourtant en plein mois d'aout!). Bref, nous recommandons chaudement cette location!

Une très belle villa style "hacienda "

  • 5 of 5

A pied du Canigou dans le village de Montesquieu , nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans cette villa de style hacienda, avec une très belle piscine sécurisée et un jardin magnifique . La maison est extrêmement bien équipée , la literie de qualité et chaque chambre est dotée de sa propre climatisation garantissant des nuits agréables .

La plancha extérieure, près du coin repas nous a permis de passer de nombreux diners très conviviaux .

Enfin, les nombreux jeux pour enfants ( trampoline extérieure, jeux de sociétés, ...) disponibles ont occupé nos chérubins durant le séjour .

Les propriétaires louent occasionnellement leur villa qu'ils aiment et cela se ressent .

A recommander !
