Overview

About the property

3/4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom House & Private Swimming Pool Close To Beaches

Much loved family holiday home with heated pool in the friendly French village of Sorede; only twenty minutes from the Spanish border in the foothills of the Pyrenees, this comfortable family home allows you to enjoy two countries and cultures at the same time.

Located in the popular and picturesque Catalan region, which with its rich culture and passion for food, wine and rugby, is renowned as the sunniest place in France, Sorede is known as ‘The Jewel of the Alberes’.

The house is 5 kilometres from excellent beaches and twenty minutes by car from the lively and atmospheric coastal resort of Collioure, famous as the home of the ‘Fauve’ movement of painters led by Picasso. Centre of Sorede and next door village of Laroque are both only a ten minute walk from the house with a good choice of village shops, bars and restaurants (3 listed in Gault Millau and Michelin guides). The area provides everything village life, the mountains and the beaches have to offer. This is ideal walking and cycling country, with year round sunshine, and typical Mediterranean night-life for teenagers just 15 minutes away on the coast.

The house has been recently furnished as a fresh, comfortable family retreat, sleeping eight with three bedrooms with twin beds and a mezzanine with two twin beds also; with TV/lounge area seating eight people, 2 bathrooms, fitted kitchen and an adjoining dining veranda with seating for ten. Wifi/Internet is connected.

Outside, there is a covered terrace for entertaining and dining for 10 people and a second open dining area with table and chairs for eight, Weber gas BBQ and a large private heated pool (10m x 4m), with sun decks, solar shower, parasol and loungers, all in a safe enclosed garden.

Ideal for families with young children as the property is completely enclosed and the pool is fitted with an electric safety cover.

Merveilleux séjour et maison très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Excellent séjour à SOREDE. La maison est très agréable et les personnes qui vous accueillent complément dévouées. La piscine est un petit bijou et la maison très fonctionnelle et spacieuse.

La situation géographique de la maison permet de rayonner jusqu'en Espagne (Figuera, Cadaques ne sont pas très loin) en passant par le Pertus (zone commerciale appréciée) sans oublier la très jolie région côtière française (Collioure, Port Vendres, Argeles), à quelques minutes...

Le propriétaire est charmant et la location est très bien organisée.

Rien à dire : c'était parfait !

Very relaxing, idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely relaxing week at this house. It is very family friendly: the kids loved the pool and the adults loved sitting on the veranda looking up at the Pyrenees and enjoying wonderful outdoor meals. The house was clean, comfortable and well-furnished. The owners have obviously made sure it is well-set up for guests. All the necessities (and a few luxuries) of life are in the nearby towns, a short walk or drive away.

Sorede is right in the foothills of the mountains and just 20 minutes from several fascinating old port towns and lovely beaches on the mediterranean. One of the highlights of the trip was hiking up the canyon behind the house which has several sublime swimming holes. Two of the more intrepid members of our party hiked up to a peak on the Spanish border - the rest of us drove up a jeep road and we met at the summit for a lovely picnic with incredible views. We spent the last evening enjoying a fantastic meal at a nearby vineyard on the coast watching the full moon rise and vowing to return.

The region between Perpignan and the Costa Brava is a real gem and this house was lovely in every way.

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely family holiday in Sorede. The house was perfect, very comfortable, clean and spacious The pool was a real bonus and kept my three children aged nine to seventeen happy for hours. Lovely, helpful English neighbours, close by meant we could get info on the best places to visit and where to eat out. I'm very fussy about where I choose to stay on holiday and spend hours scanning the internet. We were really pleased with our choice this year. The owner communicated well with us and was very helpful .

Maison chaleureuse et agréable

  • 5 of 5

Belle maison bien située dans une région splendide offrant mille activités diverses : vous aurez l’embarras du choix entre la côte (la côte Vermeille en particulier), l’arrière-pays, l'Espagne, voire les montagnes ..

La piscine chauffée (min 26°C et voire même 28°C si soleil) constitue un atout indéniable.

Renseignements pratiques détaillés reçu avant l’arrivée, communication claire et efficace avec le propriétaire, au demeurant serviable et sympathique.

Nous gardons un très heureux souvenir de nos vacances.

Superbes vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances, la maison est très agréable, propre et très bien équipée.

la maison est bien située, seulement à quelques minutes d'argeles et 20min de l’Espagne.

la piscine à 28°c était un vrai bonheur!

les propriétaires sont a l'écoute et facilement disponibles.

les personnes qui nous ont accueillis sont très sympathiques et chaleureuses.

En résumé la semaine était parfaite.

je recommande cette location.
