About the Owner

We have owned our villa in St Genis since 1987 and have let it for several months in the year since 2000. We like to stay in the villa for a few weeks in the winter and a month in the spring and autumn. completing any refurbishing of the house, garden and pool during this time and enjoying ourselves in the delightful climate that St Genis offers. The villa is, however, available throughout the year for let.

Recently we have added a self contained appartment downstairs and a large Abri in the garden so that we ( and you) can be shielded from the sun but able to enjoy the garden and pool. We tend to eat outside in the Abri throughout the year.

In the winter we ski at Font Romeau ( about 1 1/2 hours by car in the Pyrenees) and relax by the woodburner in the Sejour.

Quiet, well-equipped villa in ideal village locate

  • 4 of 5

A spacious, well-equipped villa in a secluded location at the end of a cul-de-sac in the charming village of St Genis. Comfortable with all amenities (very good wi-fi), it's an ideal base from which to explore both the coast and the mountains (less than one hour's drive away). The pool size is very generous for this size of villa and there was plenty of outside space in which to chill. There is a campsite to the rear of the property but you wouldn't know it was there. Would recommend.

From the Owner

St Genis is a quiet historicvillage with all essential shops.The climate is equitable and Colliuore, Ceret and their artists enclaves are close. The swimminmg pool has been renovated recently and is large enough for serious `exercise or fun. There are four bedrooms including a self contained flat downstairs that is included. The house is now in its third generation of ownership and is as well- loved now as it ever was. There is so much to do and see in this unique area that we never tire of it. Whether you want culture, history, fine dining or just chilling in the sun by a lovely pool this is where to find it!
