About Rocca

Couple with 2 children, senior executives, lovers of nature and the beauty of life.

Rocca purchased this house in 2006

Why Rocca chose Amélie-les-Bains-Palalda

We are leaving the region for business reasons, but we want to keep our house, which is very important for us. We acquired it on 2006 and have renovated it. We will keep it as a holiday house, outside the rentals periods.

What makes this house unique

It is located on a green setting, with view over the mountains. The house is located on a sparsely populated residential area with easy access. During the renovation, we have combined modernity with tradition by adding an extension that offers a large living space which opens into the garden. Not overlooked, with a charming outdoor area, with shaded and sunny areas, a large garden table under the huge mimosa, where you can have meals and barbecues (close to the barbecue) with you family and friends. There are many possible sleeping arrangements available. The 30 m² dependency with bathroom and WC is ideal for a couple with one children, total quiet.

Very happy but with a couple of suggestions

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen and entertaining area was faultless, bags of kitchen equipment for our group, excellent space to cook and chat, the entertaining, seating and dining space was fantastic.

My only thoughts are that bed linen, (including duvet covers) should be provided as well as towels. For a group of people flying in to enjoy the property it should be possible to have these provided even if there was an additional laundry fee.

Also, the Homeaway app mentioned giving a Wifi code but there is no internet at the property - something that was an inconvenience.

Lastly the swimming pool, although a welcome addition to any holiday had very green water, especially by the end of our week stay. I do not know if there was a problem with the filtering or chemicals but it certainly didn't look like the picture on the website.

Having said all that, the size of the property, the quality of the furnishings, the garden and the privacy made for a really excellent holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property.

Maison spacieuse,agréable, fonctionnelle, propre et bien équipée. Par contre pour les grosses chaleurs de l’été il faudrait prévoir des ventilateurs pour le RC, le 1er étage et la dépendance. La température n’était supportable que dans la chambre du dernier étage grâce à la climatisation. Une protection solaire extérieure du côté des grandes baies vitrées serait nécessaire. La présence importante de moustiques dès le matin et tout au long de la journée n’a pas permis de profiter pleinement de l’extérieur. Excellentes relations avec la personne chargée de l’accueil et des contacts au cours du séjour.

Casa muy cómoda y espaciosa

  • 5 of 5

La casa es muy cómoda y amplia, perfecta para 8 personas, muy limpia y con todo lo necesario en la cocina.

Sería más cómodo si se proporcionaran las toallas y ropa de cama pero igualmente, 100% recomendable.
