About Julie Litvin

I currently live in Dubai with my husband, our two sons and our 19 year old cat, Pablo.

We love France and have enjoyed many wonderful, happy family holidays in Fitou.

It is a warm and welcoming village and the surrounding area offers something for everyone.

Julie Litvin purchased this villa in 2008

Why Julie Litvin chose Narbonne area

We fell in love with this area because of its natural beauty, multitude of places to explore and activities for all ages. Having owned property in the Fitou area for a number of years, we know it will be a popular destination for prospective holiday-makers from all over the world.

We worked with a fabulous builder to create a wonderful holiday home. The photos are a true reflection of the current quality and standards we strive to maintain and the garden is even more beautifully established this year creating more privacy.

Our villa is perfectly located for all the attractions of the coastal resorts and sandy beaches (10 min drive) with the advantage of the privacy of the villa and our heated pool when you choose.

What makes this villa unique

As well as Cave D'Agnes and Vidals in Fitou village (10 min walk), Leucate Village (10 min drive) also has a wonderful selection of excellent restaurants. Last summer saw the opening of a further two amazing restaurants in Fitou village (Le Toit Vert & Le Moulin), fabulous food yet reasonably priced.

We are well equipped for young ones, incl. 2 cots, 2 highchairs, bed guards, baby bath seat, potty, changing mat, kids' cups/plates and a detachable stairgate.

The heated pool has an electric cover.

We have UK Sky TV freeview channels (i.e BBC/ITV/Sky News) and wifi is now available in the village bar/tabac and other local places. There are two high powered hairdryers available for your use in the master bedrooms.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week. Villa is excellent and the pool being heated allowed us to use it every day.

I will be looking out for any late booking deals later in the year!

Absolutely Superb

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the property was superb, the master beds had mattress toppers, so comfortable (no need to take your own), the pool was fantastic, heated to perfect temperature. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, enough space in the whole house for 8 people(although there was only 3 of us. Julia the owner was very efficient and answered any queries immediately, also Pure France who are agents also for the property couldn't do enough to help, the managers of the property Julie and Ian went beyond efficiency, they were the best managers we have ever met, and we have rented in Australia, America plus Europe. Would not hesitate to recommend this property as your No 1 choice.

Enjoyable stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a very spacious modern villa with everything you need. A great HEATED pool was perfect for October. It is only 10 mins from Leucate beach and a good choice of shops. With two teenagers there is no shortage of bathrooms and everything works...lots of hot water, clean, tidy...nicely decorated. The only downside is the neighbours on two sides are very close by...barely 10 yds. This may not be an issue for many but the huge terrace upstairs with a great view overlooked the house below us and we felt like voyeurs. On one Friday evening we had a BBQ and some music...blues, jazz, french and UK pop.....the neighbours subtley made it plain they found our choice of music not to their liking...it couldn't have been volume as it was only from an IPad . After four days of a polite "bonjour" we were ignored the following day. It made us feel a bit u comfortable even though we were all indoors by 8 pm EVERY night. We live on a farm back in UK so perhaps we overreacted but I would not return here with a teenage family. Don't let that put you off , it is a very nice villa, well appointed with easy access to the coast.

We will be back ....

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Fitou, staying in this lovely and comfortable villa. I agree with other reviewers, the pictures do not do the property justice. It is spacious with a very high finish throughout maintaining a very homely feel. Our party consisted of 2 families with 4 kids (6,6,2 and 2), they loved it. As for the area, well it's a really special part of France, Fitou and Leucate are charming and the local beaches are lovely, unspoilt and crowd free. There is as much or as little to do here as you want. We will certainly be coming back to the area and hopefully to this villa again.

Attractive and comfortable villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is even better than it appears in the ad. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay. It was immaculately clean, spacious, comfortable, everything worked and there are beautiful views from the upstairs terrace. The garden is very attractive. We loved having four bathrooms. The booking process was easy and efficient. We were confident that if there had been a problem, Ian, the very pleasant property manager who lives nearby, would have quickly sorted it out. The newly installed wi-fi was very dependable.

With the restaurants in the village and the beach not too far away we didn't need to travel very far from the house - besides, the garden and pool were too good to leave for long! There are also some lovely walks in the hills behind the villa. The heated pool was the icing on the cake as we could swim on the couple of cooler days too. Even my 85 year old mum went in.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa and we would love to return.

Family friendly

  • 4 of 5

The Villa is clean, very spacious and well situated within a short (hilly) walk of the village and local Chateau. The pool was perfect for the kids and excellent beaches are only a 10 minute drive away. Plenty of restaurants close by to suit all tastes and no shortage of quality wines. A car is essential but there are great walks through the hills right on the doorstep, the locals were very friendly. We enjoyed a very restful couple of weeks with the only drawback being the lack of WiFi which seems to be ever more essential for kids and is useful when planning day trips etc. We would have no hesitation in booking again if returning to Fitou.

Ideal base

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location to explore the area.

Villa has everything needed. Plenty of bathrooms and good kitchen.

We had the 2 parents & grandchildren visit for the 1st week. They had the upstairs and we had down. Worked perfectly.

Ian looked after pool and us very well. Helpful with suggestions and n not at all intrusive.

Only possible negative is that the villa is surrounded by other properties. This was no problem for us and did not impair the wonderful views from the top balcony.

Would thoroughly recommend property and area.
