About the property

FR323

In the foothills of the Pyrenees, 20 km south of Perpignan, just 15 minutes drive from Mediterranean beaches and Spain. 5 minutes walk from the village. Large enclosed landscaped garden with parking for three cars. A private pool (12.5m x 5.5m, depth 1m - 2m) with large sun terrace. The pool is available from the beginning of May to the end of October. During this period the villa and apartment are not rented out separately in order to ensure that guests have exclusive use of the house, pool and garden. It is, however, possible to rent the villa only for a slightly reduced price. In this case the apartment remains unoccupied. Around the house terraces and verandahs offer a choice of shade or sun. Magnificent panoramic views: Towards the East the fishing port of Saint Cyprien and the sea, towards the North the plain of Roussillon and the mountains of Aude, towards the West the Pyrenees with Mount Canigou, towards the South the Albères hills. A new kitchen with breakfast bar and a new walk-in shower room were installed in the villa in 2014 and a new shower room and WC were installed in the apartment in 2016. Free Wifi internet is available.

About Howard and Elizabeth Pullan

Howard is a retired airline pilot and Elizabeth still has to work for her living teaching in a secondary school.

Howard and Elizabeth Pullan purchased this villa in 1992

Why Howard and Elizabeth Pullan chose Alberes

We bought the house in the Albères hills because it gave us easy access to the beaches, fishing villages and seaside resorts of Roussillon's beautiful and diverse coastline. At the time our children were little and we spent some very happy holidays playing on the beaches and exploring everything that the Pyrénées Orientales have to offer. At the same time Montesquieu's hilltop location ensured us peace and tranquility even during the summer months.

What makes this villa unique

The 13-metre-long pool can accommodate even a houseful of guests comfortably. The wonderful panoramic views from the terraces and verandas around the house are very special.
