This detached villa with beautiful pool is our home in the south of France. Book it as your base, and come and explore this area around Maureillas and Ceret in the Languedoc-Roussillon, one of the lesser known regions of France. There is so much to see and do, or just relax with a glass of wine round the pool, at the beach...
The villa is centred on 1/2 an acre of gardens with a large swimming pool big enough to play in, and with a proper deep end (1.8m). Parking is available for several cars on the drive.
The layout is mostly open plan with the kitchen giving onto two separate dining areas, and two lounge areas. Most rooms, including three of the bedrooms, have double doors onto an outside terrace giving a light and airy feel to the place. There is also the outside 'room', with table and parasol seating 10, and Dancook coal barbecue for entertaining alfresco on those long summer days. The property is equally attractive in winter with TV/selection of DVDs, log burning fire, books, board games and jigsaws.
There are 2 double bedrooms and 3 twins, which makes the house ideal for 2 families wishing to holiday together or a group of couples or friends enjoying a house party together.The master double has a spacious en suite shower room featuring a large 'wet room' shower, wash hand basin and toilet. The second double and one of the twins share the family bathroom, featuring bath, separate shower, his 'n hers basins, bidet and wc. Up a timber spiral staircase you will find 2 twin bedrooms sharing a shower room with shower, basin and wc.
Access to the property is via an attractive external staircase to reach the upper terrace and front door. It is therefore not appropriate for anyone requiring disabled access. The property nestles in the foothills of the Pyrenees and is built into the side of the hill, so what is ground floor level at the rear of the property is first floor at the front. This can be seen upon careful examination of the photographs.
