It's the little things......

  • 5 of 5

Great property for 3 families. Two upstairs and one down. Long swimming pool which allows children and adults to be in the pool at the same time. Breath taking view of the mountains. Ping pong for children and adults. Comfortable beds and lots of hot water. Very clean. Shaded under the house for long sunny afternoons. The house is in an amazing position, view of the mountains, sea 10 mins away, large supermarket 10 mins drive, charming town of Laroque up the road. Use of lots of towels and lovely managers Alan & Julie who welcomed us with drinks and food and lots of local info. It's the little things which make it !

Un super cadre, belle propriété

  • 5 of 5

On a beaucoup apprécié cette location. Parfaite pour un grand groupe. L'intérieur est propre, bien équipé. L'extérieur est génial. Le cadre est très sympa, autour de la villa, mais aussi le département des P.O., avec beaucoup de choses à visiter. On s'est régalé.

Une magnifique propriétée, qui ne nous a pas pas décue, bien au contraire: un espace à vivre grand et agréable, une décoration de bon gout. Quand à l'extérieur, parfait: belle piscine, jardin, jacuzzi, grand barbecue, un bel espace :)

Amazing oasis -everything we needed or would want!

  • 5 of 5

I LOVED this property! No matter the season, the outside was perfect for enjoying. The pictures of the yard cannot do justice to the beauty. The house had everything we needed and I loved the short walk to town and the sea. The house was so beautiful and accommodating that we had a hard time pulling ourselves away to go to town. I highly recommend this home to anyone!

Owner's Response: We highly agree. Families most love that they are in a secure gated property where they can just "let go" and feel at peace with their little ones who can enjoy the entire home and grounds in safety and paradise. The short walk to town and short drive to sea is another plus.

Sorède is a village full of charm with a pleasant central square in which to sit and watch the passing scene over coffee or a glass of wine. It sits at the foot of the Massif des Alberes and looks out over the vineyards of the Cotes du Roussillon region.

The village has a small supermarket, a pharmacy, butcher, charcuterie, greengrocer, post office, bank, newsagent (selling UK papers), estate agents and several restaurants with varying atmospheres and menus. There are two small bars tucked into the village squares and markets on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Apart from Sorède itself, local villages include Laroque des Alberes, built around it's old central tower is just a gentle 20 minute walk away. Between these two villages you can eat out at a different place every evening during a week's stay.

Just a few minutes by car or bus is the lively seaside resort of Argeles sur Mer and the charming beachtown of Le Racou (the locals' secret spot!). Cyclists also enjoy biking the coast and back to the villa. The rides are take you on picturesque backroads lined with olive groves and gorgeous mountain and sea landscapes.

You just can't go wrong being this close to sea and mountains in Sorede!
