Firstly, many thanks to Florence who was a most welcoming & accommodating host.
The property itself is tucked away in a quiet, residential area but is within walking distance, 10 minutes, of local amenities; easy striking distance of Perpignan, 15-20 minutes to the city centre; and only 45 minutes to the Spanish border or Prades - which is the gateway to the Parc Naturel. The property has much to commend it, being at once spacious and inviting, both inside & out. The four bedrooms are comfortable, there are two sizeable bathrooms, both with usable showers, one of which is a feature, large walk-in shower much loved by our three young children. A large living area is complimented by a second smaller salon, both of which feature large 4K televisions. The WiFi is exemplary, enabling both adults & children to stream Netflix onto both TVs at the same time, which is a blessing. The kitchen does not want for anything, and featured a large American style fridge/freezer with its much used ice dispenser. As we holidayed in October, we had no need of the air-conditioning, but the A/C was comprehensive. Outside was a large patio area with plenty of covered seating and a barbecue, and of course, a heated and covered pool - given the weather we encountered we had cause to use the pool in all conditions hot/cold, rain/shine, and enjoyed it immensely.
Perpignan is a small but perfectly formed city, we can recommend Restaurant Le Libanais (€70) and Les Saisons (€150) both to feed a family of 5, with non-alcoholic drinks.
The surrounding area is too comprehensive to list here but we loved Carcassonne, the Millau Viaduct, St Fulcran Cathedral at Lodève, the land train from Collioure to Port-Vendres; Roses & Cadaqués (Salvador Dali's house, now a museum) in Spain, and for the more adventurous, numerous via ferrata, a day trip to Andorra, and almost any village perched high in the Pyrénées Catalanes.
