About the property

Sleeps 6. 3 bedroom, large shower room with WC & seperate WC

Peaceful villa with heated private pool in a perfect location for beaches, mountains and village shops and restaurants.

The pool is heated in May and June and then in September and this makes it a please to swim through the whole season, ( Please note - Weather will vary and this effects the temperature of the water )

Just 10 minutes drive from Mediterranean beaches, this characterful medieval village in the foothills of the beautiful Alberes mountains.

Your holiday villa is in a quiet cul-de-sac and has its own private pool with sunny terraces. A scenic 10 minute stroll takes you to the boulangeries and other small shops, restaurants and bars of the village - or you could walk up into the mountain footpaths.

The villa sleeps 6 in 3 double rooms, is stylish and very well equipped. Wireless broadband is provided.

The Pool is heated at the start and end of the season and during July and August the sun keeps it at a steady temperature.

How to get there : Perpignan is the closest airport (25km): Fly Flybe from Birmingham and Southampton, Ryanair from Stanstead. Girona is 1hr 15mins almost entirely by motorway: Fly Ryanair from Stanstead, Luton, Bournemouth, Nottingham East Midlands, Blackpool, Liverpool, Glasgow Prestwick. Barcelona is 2 hrs 15mins almost entirely by motorway and can be reached from many UK airports - including by Jet2 and Easyjet.

Things to do : In addition to the beaches, walking, food and wine outlined in the 'location' section, the area is interesting for history and art:

The medieval village of Laroque-des-Alberes is charming and there is plenty of interesting medieval history in churches, cloisters and other villages of the region. There is a castle at Coullioure. Sevillanas (local dances) are popular specatacles. Nearby Ceret has a modern art gallery with work by Picasso and others, while the Dali museum is just the other side of the border in Spain and Collioure is full of artists studios specialising particularly in colourful Fauve style art.

Please note that we do welcome owners with dogs, however due to a bad experience in 2012 we reserve the right to charge extra for cleaning at the end of the holiday should that be necessary. We ask our guests with dogs to leave the villa as they would expect to find it..

Spring is lovely - House is lovely

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice now in the Spring. The house is very spacious and well situated for short walks to the beautiful village of Laroque.It is is very well equipped for all our needs,the main one being a lovely chimney insert which we enjoy in the cooler evenings of March. We will be there again next Spring. I recommend this house for families with or without dogs as there are lovely walks very close by. The Duries have thought of everything! We hope to be there again next Spring

Beaches: The blue Meditrerranean is visible from the village and just 10 minutes drive. There are flat sandy beaches for sandcastles and rocky coves suitable for snorkeling. There are often swimming platforms and pedalos or windsurfers are for hire.

Walking: Footpaths into the mountains with chestnut and cork oak trees and views to the sea, start about 10 minutes walk from the villa. The stream is fun for children to play in. There are dramatic rocky, flowery coast paths too.

Food and wine: The Cote Roussillon and Roussillon Villages red wines are superb - wine writers are just beginning to get excited about these 'under-rated' wines. There are 4 restaurants in Laroque one specialising in seafood, another offering typical robust Catalan cuisine and a third includes a Tapas bar. There are 2 bakeries, a butchers and 2 grocers. Buy from the farm: goat's cheese, olive oil, almonds, apricots, kiwi fruit.

Airports: Perpignan (40mins), Gerona (1hr15), Barcelona (2hrs15) by autoroute
