Villa With Private Pool In Mountain Valley Setting

Overview

Property

Updated: 08-Nov-2016
Villa in Fuilla du Bas, Near Prades, Pyrenees Orientales, Languedoc-Roussillon - 4 Season Holiday Location, Close To Prades

Set in a beautiful south facing mountain valley, the villa is situated in the village of Fuilla du Bas and enjoys stunning views of Mount Canigou. With over 300 days of sunshine per year, this historic region has the best weather of Southern France. Besides extensive year round outdoor pursuits, there is much to see and do locally, making this is a true 4 season holiday destination. The lovely market town of Prades, medieval fortified town of Villefranche de Conflent and the spa town of Vernet le Bains are all less than 10 minutes away. Further afield, the Mediterranean coast is 45 minutes distant. While in the winter a selection of ski resorts, including Pyrenees 2000, Les Angles and Font Romeu are only 40 minutes' drive away and there, even in summer, there is much to see and do. Also close by is scenic inland Northern Spain. A bit further on, but still easily doable as a day trip is Andorra which has a huge range of tax free bargains. All in all this is an area of great beauty and variety.

Hello there! Myself and Liam would like to thank you both for loaning us your fabulous holiday home in France. You have bought yourselves a little bit of heaven down there! We had a superb time and savoured every single minute of being there. The scenery in the surrounding area was breathtaking and the weather certainly did us proud. Thank you once again and please count us in for next year. We'll be back! Very many thanks and kind regards, Katrina.



Arrived back home late last night from our holiday in France. We both enjoyed the stay at the villa very much, in fact it was probably the most enjoyable stay we have had in France. The villa was excellent, so much so that we felt completely at home. John W.





Just wanted to express our gratitude at the lovely holiday that we had in your villa. The villa was beautiful and your instructions and guidelines were more than very helpful, making it a really stress free holiday. Thank you again for a fab holiday. Best Wishes Anne.

FABULOUS TIME! !!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just finished our holiday in France. We stayed in Fuilla for a week and wished it was for longer. It was truly home from home, it was comfortable, everything you might need was there. Great location, easy to pop into Spain for the day. The pool was fabulous we had a great time splashing about in it.The owner is very helpful and friendly as is the manager who came over to make sure all was well.

Can't wait to go again. I miss Mount Canigou. WARNING! !! You will too.

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this beautiful villa.

The house was fantastic and the views were nothing less than spectacular. We loved watching the sun peeking over Mount Canagou every morning. The garden has a beautiful pool and two pretty apple trees (we made an apple crumble with the juicy apples!) We were delighted with the lovely bottle of wine left for us and the booklet of information helped us plan our days. The area is very peaceful and we enjoyed walks to Sahore and villefranche. We discovered the €1 bus leaving Villefranche travelling all over the department. Although we hired a car, we much preferred to sit back on the bus and enjoy the beautiful scenery. We visited The abbey of st Martin de Canagou, shopped in Perpignan and dipped our toes in the Mediterranean in the seaside town of Collioure. This was our first ever holiday in France and it was much much more that we had expected.

Thank you so much for having us and we can't wait to return again.

Perfect relaxation in a beautiful part of France

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4 with children aged 14 and 11) spent 3 wonderful weeks here this summer. The house was great and its setting is truly stunning. Lazing in the pool surrounded by the mountains was a perfect way to spend our summer holiday. There are plenty of things to do as and when you leave the house. We enjoyed trips up into the mountains and to the coast. We also went white-water rafting which was an incredible experience. All in all it was undoubtedly the best holiday we've had in France, and we've had many. We look forward to coming back to this beautiful house and this beautiful region in the future.

What a simply stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very special holiday for us, and we had high expectations; but we were completely overwhelmed by this beautiful area. We spent three weeks at the villa, and absolutely loved our time there. The villa has such a homely ambience that we immediately felt comfortable. The surrounding area is so stunningly beautiful, the breathtaking view from the side window in the main room fills your heart with joy, and watching the sun rise over Mount Canigou lifts your spirits and lightens your soul.

Lovely villa in great location. The villa is comfortable and doesn't feel like rental accommodation. Everything you might need for a good family holiday is available, including board games, cards, DVDs etc.

The whole process from booking, payment, key hand-over, pool care, gardening, and help whilst away was managed really well.

We will be back; thank you!

Beautiful scenery

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay here in September, weather was particularly lovely and the scenery was absolutely stunning.

The house is well laid out and has everything you would need. Would love to come back again. Very clean and a lovely bottle of wine and some essential food items were provided.

Any problems were sorted as best as they could almost straight away.

Be careful of the hot tap in the bath as it leaks and can scold if you are not careful whilst in the shower or bath.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Please note that the bathtub tap was replaced in 2014 - the new tap has a temperature control mechanism so there is no risk of being scalded. Looking forward to seeing you again!
