Completely refurbished in 2013, this stylish villa offers spacious living, a resident’s only private pool and stunning views of the Roussillon coastline. The property is divided into a two story two bedroom villa and a separate self-contained studio apartment. The villa and studio apartment can be either rented separately or together, accommodating a total 6 guests.
Set above the picturesque town of Collioure, which is only a 10 minute walk, this gorgeous part of the south of France has it all from the old town, beaches and waterside activities to the quayside fortified church and royal castle built by the Knights Templar which provides a great contrast to the brightly coloured Catalan boats. The town also boasts an impressive selection of shops, boutiques, galleries, bars, bistros and restaurants, with golf, skiing and vineyards all within the surrounding area.
Collioure sits within the foothills of the Pyrenees; where terraced vineyards plunge down to meet the Mediterranean. It remained under Spanish rule until 1659, today this charming Catalan town not only enjoys an exceptionally sunny climate but the local culture and food reflect its Spanish roots and close proximity to the boarder, which is only 15 miles away.
The immaculate villa is located in a charming development and complemented with all new furnishings and fittings. The two bedroom two story villa includes a fully equipped kitchen to ensure that you can take advantage of the locally available produce - oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer, kettle, coffee machine and toaster. Broadband (wifi) has been newly installed for 2014. Open lounge/dining area complete with dining table and chairs for six, sofa, rocking chair, TV area and patio doors leading out to the large terrace which offers spectacular panoramic coastal views, dining facilities for 6 and a built in BBQ. The terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast, dinner or a glass of locally produced wine from the nearby wineries; it is equally enjoyable to simply soak up the sun or read a book from the reclining loungers.
The second floor comprises a double bedroom complete with fitted wardrobe, full length mirror, bedside tables and ample lighting, a large twin bedroom with 2 single beds and bathroom with bath/shower, vanity unit, heated towel rail and separate WC. Linens and towels are provided.
The self-contained spacious studio comprises a sleeping area (1 double bed), living/dining area (two seated sofa, TV etc), well appointed kitchen/dinner and separate bathroom. The studio opens onto a small terraced patio and is situated directly below the two bedroom villa.
The private residence pool, situated directly behind the villa, is securely gated and equipped with communal sun-loungers (beach towels are provided within the villa). The photo of the pool shown is before the renovations were carried out in spring 2013. Since this photo was taken the whole area around the pool has been decked, the pool itself has been relined and a new outdoor shower has been installed. The overall transformation is stunning.
The villa is completed with parking and travel high chair and cot, available upon request.
