Villa in Paziols, Nr. Perpignan, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Quiet location only 5 min walk into the village. Surrounded by vineyards and hills but not isolated
About Niccola Boyd-Stevenson
We purchased this property as we love this region of France and we use it as an escape from busy working lives in the UK. We love to bring our family and friends out here when able as it has such beautiful and tranquil surroundings with the luxury of our own pool. We love it (and so does Oscar our dog who you can see in the picture!). We hope you will too.
Why Niccola Boyd-Stevenson chose Paziols
The village, the mountains, the calmness .... the wine, the pool, the fresh croissants. It is a beautiful area and only 40 km from the sea and beach. Paziols also has a wonderful river for local outdoor swimming.
What makes this Villa unique
Great places to visit: • Cucugnan • Château de Queribus • Château de Peyrepertuse • Tautavel • Colliure – near the Spanish boarder on the coast lovely old style port, village and beach • Worth a trip on the coast past the Etangs – Port Leucate, etc • If going further afield a trip to Lagrasse via the mountains is spectacular

A Room with a Pool!
Just had a lovely two weeks in this delightful property. Everything that we could possibly want was available and the pool cleaned every couple of days. Fabulous! Thank you, Helen
A peaceful location with nice signposted walks from the doorstep. Swimming pool a perfect temperature always. House well equipped. House manager, Linda, shares lots of handy local information. Highly recommended.
Excellent facilities, a bit like staying in your own house. Beds were very comfortable.
Everything about the house was great-it felt very welcoming without being intimidating. The beds were really comfy, the shower was brilliant and the pool was excellent. The views from the garden were rather spectacular and the village of Paziols was tidy and well-kept. Having an English-French speaking contact in the village was also rather good in case of any problems or queries-all in all an excellent holiday.
We rented the villa for a few days to attend a wedding nearby. The owners were very helpful in letting us stay for just a few nights rather than the usual rental period.
When we arrived we found a wonderfully equipped home, in a very quiet residential neighborhood. The pool is heated and has a large patio area to relax on. The villa is maintained on the owners behalf by a very helpful local lady who speaks excellent english,
We only had a couple of days to explore the area but did manage to get down to Collioure, which is a quaint fishing port near the Spanish border (about 75km away). There are very good restaurants here. Paziols is quiet with only one shop and restaurant in Paziols itself, but there are many places to visit in the area with other restaurants, and it looked to be good walking country.
We would recommend the villa to friends visiting the area with no hesitation.
This house is based in the mainly residential village of Paziols. However, there are a large number of British ex pats living in the village, including Linda the Housekeeper.
Firstly Linda, she is amazing. She came to clean the pool every few days and offered so much more. In particular she was incredibly helpful giving lots of local insight and she went above and beyond coming with us to the doctor when our 7 month old daughter suffered an allergic reaction (my usually OK French disappeared with my panic!).
The house is very clean and well equipped, with pool toys, towels and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen including a lovely coffee maker. Guests leave behind their non-perishables so there will probably be some tea bags and pasta when you arrive. There is no supermarket in Paziols. There is a small convenience shop which is open in the morning and afternoon, closed Sundays and at lunchtimes. The fresh produce here is wonderful. There is a slightly bigger Spar in Tuchan but if you want a Super-U type shop do your shopping in Perpignan before you drive in.
The castle at Queribus is a must but is very precarious if you have vertigo and it gets very cold at the top. The village has two wine merchants, we only visited the one next to the cafe - Domaine de Roudene - that was fun. No English spoken and no sales pitches, just lots of wine to try. We came away with a few different bottles, some desert wine, some cheaper wine and a lovely more premium bottle of red that I am still dre4aming about. There are lots of lovely higher-end restaurants in Cucagnan. The campsite between Tuchan and Paziols does good cheap eats, pizzas etc.
If you stay here you will have a wonderful holiday.
We have just come back from a week at this wonderful villa! Beautiful, peaceful, spotlessly clean with a fabulous pool, we couldn't have asked for more. (The Egyptian cotton bed sheets and thick cotton towels were amazing!) Paziols is tiny and lovely with a very useful little shop (Proxi Proxi) which stocked anything you could possibly need, meat counter especially good. Thoroughly recommended!
