About Sara Loake
We are a middle aged couple who live and farm in central UK. We have spent many years improving the villa and enjoying family holidays there. When we bought the house, we fell in love with the spectacular views and tranquility of the area - something which we never tire of! It is perfectly situated for our family as it allows access to the Pyrenees for skiing and is only an hour and a half from the Med'. Although to be honest, we don't venture far from the house/pool when we do spend time there!
Sara Loake purchased this Villa in 2002

Great villa in wonderful location
We had a wonderful time in the villa. The house had a real feel of home about it - the open plan sitting room / kitchen area work brilliantly. It is clearly somewhere that the owners have spent time as it was so well equipped, including excellent fly screens, equipment in the kitchen, and super comfy outside chairs and loungers. The information book provided in the house was very helpful. We much appreciated that, from the first enquiry, the owners have been quick to respond and have answered any questions. We all enjoyed the watching and talking to the animals on the neighbouring farm, Mirepoix and Carcassonne are lovely and well worth visiting. We would definitely recommend the villa!
wonderful relaxing holiday
Fantastic location, very quiet and peaceful. Stunning views. Villa has a very homely feel, with lovely furnishings. Wonderful terrace and swimming pool. Spent many hours just relaxing. Would definitely book again. Great holiday.
Paradise! Lovely villa, beautiful views!
We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Magalassou! What a lovely location, on top of a hill with amazing views and only the sound of cow bells in the distance. The views of the stars on a clear night are incredible! The villa itself is lovely and spacious, it stays cool in the summer which is really nice too. Everything was very clean and the kitchen is fully equipped. The facilities were great and we didn't have any problems at all.
The pool and outside patio are great too, very clean and so picturesque with the views of the hills set behind it. If you need a peaceful break away in the countryside, this villa is definitely for you!
I would suggest to rent a car if you stay here as there are lots of nice places to visit nearby. Mirepoix is the closest town, it is a small Medieval town that has some nice little shops and restaurants/cafes to visit. They also have a great market (check the market days in the info book at the villa) with all sorts of food, trinkets, etc.
The owners are so nice and friendly, they responded to all of my queries very quickly and politely.
