Property description

Traditional Catalan villa (3 bedrooms, 6 persons)
“Domaine des Albères” in Laroque des Albères (66)
From 500 Euros per week
7 nights minimum
In a natural site offering a unique panorama (view over the Mediterranee and the Albera mountain), this family house with a large private garden, will allow you to relax while enjoying the pool, the tennis court, the table tennis of the Estate and the beautiful hikes in the Albera mountain (departure/ back to the house). You will have access in less than 20 minutes to the stunning beaches of Argeles-sur-Mer, Le Racou, Collioure and to Barcelona 2 hours away. The Roussillon is the sunniest region of France, offering plenty of season fruits and of course traditional Catalan cuisine. A unique place that you will not forget, where you can enjoy the tranquillity of the hinterlands while being very close to the beaches.


The house is located in the most Southern part of France (the Pyrenees-Orientales, department 66) in the Languedoc Roussillon region.
The Pyrenees-Orientales are at the frontier with the department of Aude to the North and to the South, Spain-Catalonia (Barcelona) and the principality of Andorra to the West.

The Spanish Catalan has had a powerful influence on the Languedoc Roussillon region for the last centuries, with especially the red and yellow colours of the flag, the signalling both in French and Catalan, the culinary style, etc.
Living in and visiting this region is like enjoying 2 countries at the same time.
To see: the Internet website to know all about this region.
Laroque des Albères / Domaine des Albères
Laroque-des-Albères (La Roca De Albera in Catalan) is an ancient and charming village only few minutes away from the house by car. You can go there by foot, by car or by the mountains' paths. Easy to recognize from far with its Cathar castle located in the village heights.
Like all the traditional villages of the region, Laroque offers you good restaurants such as 'Le Cafe des Artistes', where you can benefit from a good value for money, for a dinner on a shaded terrace.

In Laroque, you will find all kinds of shops (bakery, butcher, pharmacy, tobacco/newspaper kiosk and a grocery store). The tobacco/newspapers kiosk is owned by lovely persons that will make you some space to connect your computer in Wi-Fi.


In terms of logistics, it is easy to find all year long flight tickets/trains at a good price (1 hour flight from Paris or 4 hours by train-TGV from Paris) and to rent a car to get back to the house but the most important, to visit the region. You are 2 hours away from Barcelona, only 1 hour away from Girona and 30 minutes away from the picturesque town centre of Perpignan.

The house is located at 300m of altitude and in the foothills on a 1 200 sq.m sloping land surrounded by cork oaks, giving a priceless shade for a good nap in the hammock.

This house is ideal for families or friends.

In the Albera Massif, offers as well as quiet, a unique panorama on the Plaine du Roussillon and the Mediterranean Sea.

From the balcony, early birds can enjoy the beautiful sunrise on the sea.

House built in the Catalan style, with 4 bedrooms, can accommodate up to 6 persons. Well-appointed and comfortable inside; covered outdoor terrace that allows you to make the most of the softness of family evenings.

You can enjoy a private swimming pool and a tennis court for the residents of the Albera Residential Estate only.

Active people can leave the house at dawn to go all over the Albera paths. Take a deep breath, bring water and food and it is on for a few hours of walking on the steep paths up to the top of the Albera, where you will reach the frontier of Spain on one side and the Plain du Roussillon on the other side. Unique and unobstructed view.

Leaving at 6 a.m., you can reach the Col de l'Ouillat by approximately 8 a.m. and be rewarded for your efforts by a great breakfast at the Ouillat hostelry.

The house is located few minutes away by car from a very nice village, 'Laroque des Albères' and 20 min away from the sunny beaches of Mediterranee, the city of Perpignan, the city of Céret and the very picturesque Collioure harbour.

Spain is on the other side of the Albera coast with the city of Barcelona only 2 hours away by car and Figueres that, with its Dali museum is just 1 hour away by car.

With its Catalan soul, its charm and spaces, this is an ideal place to spend calm family holidays. Enjoy the hinterlands' tranquillity while being very close to the beaches.
