Argeles-Sur-Mer apartment description

The villa & apartment make the most of breathtaking views over the tumbling stream, whilst the terraced gardens offers both sun & shade. They are planted with palms, yuccas & Mediterranean plants. Each property has it's own private area outside. The shared gate leads to the stream & natural pool great for swimming, fishing & exploring nature. The sound of running water & birds chirping help get you strait into the holiday mood. This is a place where you can really relax & unwind, yet is close to so much.
THE VILLA: Inside 9 rooms including 4 bedrooms offer plenty of space. French doors let in plenty of sun & allow you to enjoy the amazing views. From the sitting room a balcony overlooks the stream. Upstairs the 3 & 4th bedroom are joined or separated by a sliding door. They lead too a large private roof terrace.
APARTMENT RIVIERE: Outside large patios & terraced gardens lead via a private entrance to the two bedroom apartment also offering magical private views over the cascading stream & gardens.
Each has it's own ping pong table.


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! Click on our website for more photos.
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.
Ping ping is also available to the villa.

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 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.
Please click our website link for more details.

Space & comfort, great weather, walks & WIFI: The villa especially, is very spacious with large rooms. The sofa & chairs are comfortable & the furniture good quality, offering a touch of luxury. For rainy days there is TV & WIFI but with an average 300 days of sun a year & warm micro climate there are not many of these!! This area offers one of the best climates in France which is why the French have holidayed here for years.
Walking is a great pleasure here especially off season when it is cooler. There are a huge array to choose from, whether you are a casual walker or up for long hikes. Many are possible strait from the villa & apartment.Great for bird watchers also.
There is of course also the possibility of renting both the villa & the apartment if you are a larger group.

                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We are an English family living in France. I trained in England as an Osteopath & Naturopath & James as a Medical Herbalist & yoga Teacher & writer. Now my interest is in sharing in & discovering & opening to the deeper truth of ourselves, so that we can let go of limiting beliefs & flower into our infinite potential & be true to our hearts & souls. So many of us have got caught up in living life on survival level only & living according to others expectations. Yet as we turn inwards again we discover who we really are on a deeper level. We can again discover our true centre, our authentic self & live from joy. Anyone for whom this resonates is welcome to speak to me about this.

                      Why the Owner Chose Argeles-Sur-Mer:
                      I love the situation here. To be honest James & I completely fell in love with it. It has been a restoration project of love which we continue to upgrade. I just feel so grateful to be able to share this with you.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      The views & situation are so unique. To have a natural pool to swim in right outside the property is just amazing. I love to swim in nature myself & feel so much joy giving you this opportunity also. Children love it, as do adults, so it's really win win. Being close to many other pretty villages sea & shops is also a bonus. It is though useful to have a car as Sorede is about 40 mins walk & uphill on the way back.It is though a beautiful walk much of it possible along the river. Also a great spot for keen cyclists or bird watching.
