About Bev Robb

My wife Julie and I live in Cumbria in the north of England just south of the Scottish border. Both of us grew up in Cumbria and shortly after getting married 29 years ago we set up a healthcare business which we still continue to be fully involved in.

We started taking our vacations in France, firstly towing a caravan to regions such as Brittany with our three children and often their friends, then going further afield renting villas and getting to know new areas such as Provence and the Cote D'Azur..

We came to realize that the region we liked best was Languedoc Rouission which seemed to have endless warm sunny days and the scenery was fantastic so we took the plunge and bought Villa Mimosa near Ceret which happened to be the first house we looked at.Although needing some work it had everything we wanted such as privacy,fantastic views and a swimming pool.

Year by year we improved various aspects of it till it was just as we envisioned. It is now a wonderful second home where we can decamp to as a bolt hole from our demanding lives in the UK, We continue to enjoy having children/grandchildren and friends on a regular basis having the satisfaction of having a home we have made our own over the years in on of the most desirable but unspoilt regions of France.

Bev Robb purchased this villa in 2003

Why Bev Robb chose Vallespir

This property encompassed everything we envisioned in not just a second home but also a holiday home, easy maintenance, spacious but still 'homely', south facing aspect with great views and a manageable pool and garden but also close to local amenities.

What makes this villa unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent villa- location equipment, views etc. all great. Glad to find water in pool 1.5-1.55 rather than 1.7m! Collioure as delightful as ever- but be early! Many thanks for a great holiday. Hope to be back!

Situated in the South east corner of France in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains and only fifteen minutes drive to the Spanish border, Ceret and its surrounding area enjoys a warm sunny climate and beautiful scenery. With it's attractive cobbled back streets and wider main boulevards lined with towering plane trees Ceret provides the perfect place to escape the stresses of modern life yet at the same time enjoy the shops cafes and bars along with the weekly market that makes up life in Ceret.

The countryside around Ceret provides for all leisure activities, within easy reach are the towering mountains of the Pyrenees, notably Canigue, plunging gorges, Cathar castles and for those who enjoy the beach these are within a half hours drive on the Mediterranean coast.

The villa itself, located just five minutes drive from Ceret, enjoys total privacy and if the preferred option is just to relax and do nothing then there is no better way to do this than just sink into a recliner with a book and a drink on the terrace and enjoy the uninterrupted views across the Tech valley to the mountains beyond or perhaps cool off in the pool.
