About François Save
My wife Liliana, artisan of Venezuelan origin, and myself, conference interpreter, have three grown kids on the brink of leaving home in Belgium
François Save purchased this Villa in 2013
Why François Save chose Calmeilles
We have found, sooner than expected, the place and the house where we plan to retire one day! This early love at first sight gives us the opportunity to share this gem in the middle of nature before we keep it for ourselves!
What makes this Villa unique
We are convinced you will also fall in love with this exceptional place, the peacefulness, the clean air, the views, and that you will rapidly get to know the friendly and cosmopolitan population of Calmeilles.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Private location with far reaching views north and south. Fully equipped spacious property with all you will need. Secluded large swimming pool great to cool off on those hot days. A short walk down to a picturesque village with a friendly bistro offering freshly cooked menu of the day.
Very enjoyable stay
Lovely house with great views in two directions and a great pool area.
Wonderful, home from home, only better! Very well equipped with everything we needed and more, nothing missing. Magnificent views of the mountains from every window. Away from it all but a great variety of sightseeing within easy reach - Ceret, Perpignan, the coast, Carcassonne, Spain etc. Thoroughly recommended. Wanya was very helpful and knowledgeable and gave us a good welcome. Steve was on hand taking care of the pool and garden. We are a family with three children in their early twenties and would love to return.
Thank you Daniel for your kind words. I will transmit to Wanja and Steve your appreciation of their help. I am glad you liked La Creu and its surroundings, and you will be most welcome whenever you want to return.
Only the sound of crickets and the splash of the pool water.
What a wonderful setting, but with all modern requirements. The mountain views are stunning and the panoramic views include the sea and coast in the distance. At night the lights of Spain can be seen in the distance as well as local hamlets and villages on the lower slopes of the hills as we dined outside and sat talking on the terrace. We wandered the evening street markets in Ceret and explored its open air restaurants. The museum of modern art is compelling. Visits to the old Cathar areas were a must, including Carcassonne and Haute Corbierre with its castles perched upon impossible mountain tops. Culture, history, excellent food, peace and tranquility in a splendid villa set away from its neighbours to ensure total privacy.
Thank you for this kind, elegant and informative comment. My wife and I are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Superb property - what a location!
Superb property - comfortable, plus very well equipped and maintained. It includes everything you could possibly need!
The views are magnificent, and the peace and quiet a real treat. We loved it!
Maison presque parfaite et endroit incroyable!
Nous avons ADORÉ notre séjour à cette maison. C'est propre, grand, beau, bien équipé et l'environnement est un vrai coin de paradis (mais un peu isolé, c'est ce que nous aimions, c'est tranquille). Nous recommandons cet endroit sans aucune hésitation! Le propriétaire répond toujours rapidement à nos questions. Nous aimerions y retourner.
Merci de cette appréciation qui nous va droit au coeur! La satisfaction de nos locataires est pour nous une source de plaisir et de fierté.
François et Liliana.
Excellent starting point for long walks or cycling in the surrounding forests and mountains. Nearest supermarkets, shops and restaurants in Céret, at around 15 kms.
