Arles sur Tech house description

La Paloma is a large residence on the edge of the medieval village of Arles sur Tech in the Languedoc region of South West France.

In 1956 local chiropractor, Mr Boix and his dentist wife chose this prime site on an old vineyard with views over the picturesque village to create a villa to live in and a separate suite of rooms for them to practice in.

When we bought La Paloma in 2003 we converted the practice rooms into a separate apartment, installed a swimming pool and created extra terraces. La Paloma can be rented as a House to sleep 12 or a Villa to sleep 6.

Either option provides:

- Private pool
- Stunning views
- Extensive terraces
- Fully equipped kitchens
- Short walk to shops and restaurants
- Short drive to coast and into Spain
- Cots, pushchairs and high chairs available

La Paloma is the ideal venue for a family reunion, celebrations or two family holidays. The two-story layout of the property lends itself to large gatherings. In addition to sleeping 12 people in the bedrooms there are three sofa beds to accommodate a further 6 people. With two kitchens, three bathrooms and three reception rooms there is plenty of room for party members to find their own space.

If your party is smaller you can rent just the villa section for 6 people.

The various outside terraces and seating areas mean that you can be together when you want to and can separate into smaller groups when required. In the evenings party members can find their own favourite spots to group together and enjoy a quite drink and meal or to play music and chat the night away.

One of the most important reasons for us buying a house in France was our love of food and wine. The main kitchen at La Paloma usually becomes the main gathering place when we are there with friends and family. The kitchen is well equipped with all mod cons and some interesting traditional French features. It has a table that will comfortably sit eight people, an American fridge with ice maker and modern gas cooker along with all the utensils and equipment required for the most ambitious cook.

A small library of cookbooks includes books from Elizabeth David though to Rick Stein should you be stuck for inspiration. Coll Frers, the village butcher has a fabulous selection of meat, poultry, and charcutery and the local Spar has fresh supplies of vegetables each day.

La Paloma House: Arles sur Tech Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 78363ha

La Paloma House consists of La Paloma Villa and La Paloma Apartment and can be rented throughout the year. La Paloma Villa can be rented anytime apart from July and August. See tab at top of page to rent La Paloma Villa. The house is perfect for large parties, family reunions and two family holidays. The villa section provides the main accommodation, reception rooms, kitchen, bathrooms and three bedrooms with beds for six. The self-contained apartment has its own front door, kitchen, lounge diner, shower room and two further bedrooms with beds for six. When at La Paloma with a large party we tend to consign the youngsters to the apartment. This leaves us to enjoy the peace and quite afforded by the villa with its large terraces and fantastic views. The youngsters meanwhile can enjoy themselves; close enough to be safe and far away enough to feel independent. Meal times are always the highlight of the day at La Paloma. There are several terraces to choose from for lunch providing shade or sun as required. As dinner time approaches party members drift back from the activities of the day and congregate in the large kitchen to share stories and help prepare the meal over a glass of local wine.

                                      La Paloma is in the beautiful medieval village of Arles sur Tech. Arles is one of the most southerly villages in France and is just a few miles from the Spanish frontier where you can access Figures, famous for it’s Salvador Dali connection and the historic Catalan city of Girona. The prefecture of Ceret, famous for it’s annual cheery festival and museum of modern art is a short drive away. Beyond Ceret the old Roman road leads to the picturesque Côte Vermeille with the artists’ enclave at Collioure and seafood lovers paradise of, Port-Vendres once the home of René Mackintosh. The regional city of Perpignan is a thirty-minute drive away with its bustling shops, ancient canal network and fascinating Arabic quarter. Further up the coast you can reach Montpelier in one and a half hours and the historic Cathar city of Carcassonne in two.Getting here is easy. You can come by Ryanair to Perpignan or Girona, EasyJet to Barcelona, TGV to Perpignan or spend a leisurely day or two driving down from the Channel ports and crossing the spectacular Millau viadu

                                      Great for the family. Cheap and cheerful and good quality too. Turn left just before the bridge into Arles sur Tech, past the basketball centre and follow the signs up the winding road. You can just play a round of mini golf if you like or take a drink in the sunshine and enjoy the views.

                                      Ski: We don’t pretend that La Paloma is a perfect ski location, but in the winter there are a number of ski areas within an hour or two’s drive. This works well if only some of your party are keen skiers and others prefer the village life and mild temperatures around La Paloma.

                                      The nearest resort is at Vallter 2000, about 1.5 hours away in Spain. This is good resort for beginners.

                                      For more advanced skiing the resorts around the plateau at the top of the neighbouring Tet Valley provide lots of choice.

                                      It will take you a couple of hours to drive there and we can recommend hotels if you decide to make it an overnight trip.

                                      It is a good idea to carry snow chains if you plan to visit either of there events. The roads are normally cleared each day, but you can get caught out by a sudden heavy dump of snow. We have a selection of chains to fit most vehicles, so just ask.
