About Philip Groves
I have a French mother, was born in Jersey and from an early age went on holiday to France. While on a career break teaching English in Barcelona, I discovered this beautiful part of the Pyrenees and I have often returned since to hike in the mountains. While I still work in London, it is a fantastic thing to be able to reach this part of the Pyrenees for a long weekend or week away. This is away from it all but still part of a village community with a wonderful dry sunlit climate.
Philip Groves purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Philip Groves chose Osséja
Osseja is the sunniest village of this area and is sufficiently large to have its own community and amenities as an all year round village. It is not on a main road which makes it a haven close to the mountains. It feels like going back in time.
What makes this Apartment unique
300 days of sunshine, a wonderful Catalan cuisine, fantastic air quality and a wonderful variety of low, mid and high mountain settings and landscapes, including a large forest, a real break from it all!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
agréable séjour à Osséja
Le village a du charme avec des commerces de proximité. Très bonne communication avec le propriétaire de l'appartement. Nous lui avons fait quelques remarques pour améliorer le confort (literie, douches, vaisselle) qui devraient être prises en compte. Bon rapport qualité prix.
With around 300 days of sunshine a year, very low pollution levels and an extraordinary luminous quality to the Mediterranean light, the Cerdagne can be enjoyed at any time of the year for outdoor sporting activities, especially walking and skiing, relaxation or historic and cultural visits on both sides of the border. Osseja is a working year round village full of life with several shops and facilities, including bakeries, restaurants, bars, a cinema and tourist office. It is renowned for its healthy climate and tranquil setting. Osseja has a train station served by the 'little yellow mountain train'. In Winter there is excellent skiing at all varying levels of difficulty, including 8 ski resorts on the French side of the Cerdagne alone, comprising 174 miles of piste accessible on one lift pass all within easy driving distance. In Summer, walks, festivals and many activities for youngsters are available and there is a large heated open air pool in one of the nearby villages.
