Welcome to our corner of the world in the South of France. A gorgeous villa, situated on a hill overlooking the lovely town of Ceret. We have everything you need for a wonderful, relaxing holiday in the sun. There is a huge (120 m2) west facing terrace, with comfy sofa and armchairs for all day sun and evening gin and tonics with the setting sun. An eating area outside the kitchen has a large gas barbecue and table enjoying the same stunning views. There is another table by the pool for your 'Al Fresco' lunch after a pleasant stroll through the local market and of course sunbeds where you can relax in the peace and quiet. The house is perfectly situated for walking or horse riding in the hills, exploring the coast or Spain, or just relaxing by the pool! If you want to stay at home, there is room to relax or if you are feeling active: swim in the pool, play table-tennis or bounce on the trampoline! Everything your villa in the sun needs with all the details - a luxury home from home.

Fabulous relaxing break
After our initial disappointment on how far from the town this house was (10 mins drive up a narrow, steep, winding road), we settled in and made the most of it. Honestly felt like we were staying at a friend's house, there were so many home comforts, it did not feel like a 'holiday rental' Our family (2 adults, 3 teens) just kicked back and chilled out! The views from this house are spectacular. There are lots of nice things to do within a half hour/40 mins drive when activity was required.
I would suggest removing the 'satelite TV' from the amenities description as this didn't work - that was only a big deal as we were staying during the World Cup and Wimbledon. I would also suggest people being prepared for mosquitos 24/7!
All in all we had a really lovely, relaxing, 'family re-group' type of holiday in this special home.
Luxury spacious house with wonderful views & a lovely pool
Wonderfully relaxing house & gardens located in the peaceful hills above Ceret. Plenty of space both inside and outside for our family of five. Master bedroom and en-suite is very luxurious and there are three lovely children's bedrooms upstairs (with another one downstairs). Outside there is a lovely garden; a large terrace with BBQ, dining table and patio sofas; and a large swimming pool. Absolutely lovely house for a family to spend some quality time together in the summer sun.
Fantastic property with fantastic views
This easily accessed villa is a quality well equipped piece of luxury perched high up on an hill with gorgeous views to the mountains. It is quite and secluded with a lovely pool and quality outdoor furnishings.
Inside the house also offers quality comfortable living with lovely bedrooms, lounge and bathrooms. The house was well equipped and the owners parents were lovely, greeting us and making sure everything was ok.
As a family of 4 with two boys aged 8-10 we had a fantastic time either staying at the house or exploring the area. The nearby lake offering swimming, boating, water assault course and tree top climbs was our favourite and most frequent excursion.
I would highly recommend this property and hope to return one day.
The booking process, checking in/out, deposit etc all went very smoothly.
Chris many thanks for your comments, we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Lovely villa with fantastic views
Stayed at this villa in August '10. It was perfect! All in all there were 10 of us staying - 4 adults and 6 kids. The layout was excellent as one family slept downstairs and the other upstairs. The kids (all under 10) loved the villa; pool, trampoline, tree house, ping pong table, playroom for the odd DVD when tired - they didn't want to leave! For us adults the level of fixtures and fittings and upkeep of the house was very good. It felt like you were staying in a home that was loved and well cared for. The views from the terrace were gorgeous!
The owners looked after us very well. A nice welcome pack when we arrived including a little gift for each of the kids - that was a lovely touch, and a completely painless rental experience - thank you.
Ceret is a lovely little town with lots of bars / cafes / restaurants and if you want to venture further afield there are plenty of sights to see both inland and at the coast.
I would certainly recommend this villa to families and those wanting a comfortable quiet base but within easy reach of the hustle and bustle of the coast.
Our home is located a 6 minute drive from the medieval town of Ceret. It is set in an exclusive development of houses with uninterrupted stunning views to Mt Canigou. Ceret is famous for it's Museum of Modern Art, Saturday market, capital of cherry production as well as it's amazing clarity of light that continues to draw famous artists to the town.
The Spanish border is 20 minutes away, The Med 25 minutes (Collioure 30 minutes)and Perpiganan 25 minutes. Easy access to both Girona and Perpignan airports.
