Casa Olympe (previously known as Casa Campana, until we changed the name to reflect the house's history) is a sympathetically modernised and comfortable village house in the pretty village of Joch in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The spacious, bright living/dining room, with wood burning stove, and the large fully fitted kitchen have stunning views over the Tet valley. There are 3 light, airy bedrooms: a ground floor double bedroom with adjoining bathroom, a large bedroom with 3 single beds, and en-suite bathroom, and the main bedroom which has an en-suite shower room. Outside the attractive south facing sheltered patio is a sun trap all year and the large roof terrace has breathtaking views. Situated at the foot of Mt Canigou there are lovely walks from house and a lakeside swimming beach in Vinca 5 minutes away. The nearby Pyrenees offer excellent walking and climbing and there are Mediterranean beaches and picturesque towns within 45 minutes drive. Throughout the area there are Romanesque monasteries, vineyards and colourful local markets. Suitable all year round for couples or families. Midweek bookings spring/autumn.
