Natural swimming pool & ping pong: Children or adults alike can while away hours looking for fish (bring a net or buy one locally) swimming or just enjoying a BBQ surrounded by blissful natural sounds. If you are the sort of person who enjoys being in a really natural environment & prefers the idea of pure mountain water to chlorine, but likes to be close to the action, this is for you. The Edge of the pool shelves gently, so it is a good place for children to practice swimming under supervision. The waterfall cascading into the pool is a constant pleasure to watch & ensures the water remains clean. Older children & adults love to jump in from the rocks above!

In winter spring & autumn the stream often surges after rain which is quite thrilling. In summer it continues to flow more quietly. It NEVER dries out.
There is a gate separating the properties from the stream to keep children safe, but obviously you must use prudence especially with young children.
Near to everything: The villages of Sorede & Laroque Des Alberes are only 5 minutes by car & offers a full range of shops & restaurants. The roads in the area are very easy & though the villa is in nature, there are houses round about, so it is by no means cut off from civilization. This is a wonderful place in summer to escape the crowds & is a welcome few degrees cooler with good air. In spring & Autumn everything is green & flowering so it is also a wonderful time to come. In winter it's also popular with guests who are looking for low rates & central heating.
