This detached villa with beautiful pool is our home in the south of France. It is located close to the border with Spain and close to the Mediterranean’s beautiful Cote Vermeille coastline.

Book it as your base, and come and explore this area around Maureillas and Ceret in the Languedoc-Roussillon, one of the lesser-known regions of France. There is so much to see and do, or just relax with a glass of wine around the pool. 

The villa is centred on 1/2 an acre of gardens with a large swimming pool big enough to play in, and with a proper deep end (1.8m). Parking is available for several cars on the drive.

The layout is mostly open plan with the kitchen giving onto two separate dining areas, and two lounge areas. Most rooms, including three of the bedrooms, have double doors onto an outside terrace giving a light and airy feel to the place. There is also the outside ‘room’ with a table and parasol, seating 10, and Dancook coal barbecue for entertaining alfresco on those long summer days. The property is equally attractive in winter with a Smart TV offering Netflix and a collection of DVDs. There is also a log burning fire, books, board games and jigsaws.

There are 2 double bedrooms and 3 twins, which makes the house ideal for 2 families wishing to holiday together or a group of friends. The master double has a spacious en suite shower room featuring a large ‘wet room’ shower, wash hand basin and toilet. The second double and one of the twins share the family bathroom, featuring bath, separate shower, his ‘n hers basins, bidet and toilet. Up a timber spiral staircase you will find a further 2 twin bedrooms sharing a shower room with shower, basin and toilet.

Access to the property is via an attractive external staircase to reach the upper terrace and front door. It is therefore not suitable for anyone requiring disabled access. The property is situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees and is built into the side of the hill, so what is ground floor level at the rear of the property is first floor at the front.
