About Gareth and Irene Lewis
We are a British couple, living in France, in a small country town just south of Paris. We've been there for the last 38 years, having come over here to work. Before that we lived in London.
Gareth and Irene Lewis purchased this House in 2009
Why Gareth and Irene Lewis chose Port-Vendres
We had visited this area of the Côte Vermeille, squeezed between between the sea and the Pyrenees, so we knew it well. We finally chose to buy here because it's beautiful, the weather is excellent, often when it's cold or raining everywhere else in France. It has good wine and food. And Port Vendres is a real community outside its tourist activity, a working port.
What makes this House unique
The house is in a very quiet neighbourhood but in only 2 minutes you are on the waterfront. Go down before breakfast for fresh bread and croissants, and a bit later to see what the local fishermen have caught, or just a stroll along the waterfront, or the rue du Soleil to look at scenes painted by Charles Rennie Mackintosh who spent his last years at Port-Vendres. Watch the boats carrying fruit and vegetables from North Africa unloading opposite. All usual services are within a short distance, butcher and delicatessen, wine-merchant, greengrocer, chemist, bank, post office and plenty of restaurants serving fish and Catalan food. The house itself is roomy, comfortable and light, with fine views over the church and opposite headland.
