    About the Owner

    We live in Ireland with 3 children and our 2 dogs Bruno and Oscar. We bought this property in Amelie in 2006. We have been going back for holidays frequently ever since. We love Amelie as it is a beautiful, unspoilt area at the foot of the Pyrenees in the Tech Valley. The river Tech flows through the town and there are beautiful walks alongside it. We love the mountain walks and the Falgos Golf course which is a short drive away.
    The daily vegetable market sells lots fresh vegetable and fruit all at reasonable prices. We visit this market each day while in Amelie.
    There is a weekly market on Boulevard Petite Provence on a Thursday and we love to browse here.
    On Sunday there is an excursion on the Petit Jeune Train which takes you through the mountains and is a spectacular journey.
