A villa showing care and taste

  • 5 of 5

Our big group - 8 adults and 11 children from 1 to 15 years old - comfortably settled in the villa. One family with small children had a whole area almost to itself. The back area accommodated another big family in 3 different rooms, granting both privacy and proximity. At the end of the garden, a wooden chalet offered a cozy shelter from noise to late sleepers. Beyond structure, the villa was very well equipped with everything you could reasonably need - washing machines, dishwasher, microwave, ovens, fridges, TVs, DVD players, BBQ set, ping-pong … Some extra stuff then (sauna, Jacuzzi, swimming pool) went a step forward. But what really made the difference was that the owner, living nearby, was very discreet, though always ready to answer our requests. Thanks Magali.

Our group of 4 families, living in different countries and meeting on holiday, did find a nice and comfortable place to share. The position of the villa then improved its value: Barcelona at 2-hour drive, Carcassonne 1, Narbonne half an hour, Perpignan close-by... With 4 mountain-bikers in the group, the eastern Pyrenees made the rest.

Perfect Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 13 friends/family sharing the house for two wonderful weeks! Nice owner who seemed to do everything to make our stay as nice as possible - even made us the best chocholate mousse we've ever had :-) The house had plenty of space for everyone - plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen equiped with everything you need (and more!) to do cooking for a big group, huge living room and fantastic outdoor area. Garden looked lovely, and had several groups of furniture and even a little snug in the trees where you could have a quiet moment. Lots of proper sunbeds and more than enough tables and chairs for our big group. We had dinner together in the garden almost every night. Lovely pool was used by children and adults every day. One day was a bit cool so we made sure we kept up the temperature by enjoying fab sauna and jacuzzi. Recommended is also to get a massage from the owner who is a professional masseuse. It took our relaxing holiday to another level! Yu do need a car to get around, but that gives you the opportunity to explore what I think is the nicest area of France. Selection of amazing sandy or pebbled beaches where you can relax, swim and watch fishes. Beautiful towns, city of Perpignan, interesting markets, Catalan culture and dancing (we joined in once), beautiful nature with sea and mountains, lots of activities for children of all ages (super large go-cart track was fun!), and of course fantastic French food and wine. All of us loved it all and hope to come back!!

Owner's Response: It was really a great pleasure to receive all of you in my villa! It's nice to see that you seem to have spend a perfect holiday here and that you've found all what you needed. I'm trying to do my best for that... Proposing massage is also a pleasure for me and is a part of the "spirit" of the villa, I think. I'm also verry happy you loved the area as I do too... I hope to see you again!!!

L villa idéale pour les grands et les petits!!

  • 5 of 5

La villa et le lieu sont extras pour des vacances en famille, les enfants (de 7 à 14 ans) ont adoré... la piscine, le mini étang avec les poissons... Les adultes ont profité du paysage magnifique, du spa et des massages de Magali, notre hôte absolument charmante qui nous a accueilli avec attention et chaleur.

La région est superbe! Autours de la villa nous avons pu faire des balades dans les vignes et goûter des vins exquis, un plaisir pour la vue et les papilles. Nous avons visité de jolis villages pittoresques comme Castelnou, Céret et son musée d'art moderne et bien sùr Collioure, son château et ses ruelles enchanteresses. Les plages sont magnifiques et regorgent de petits restaurants.... Perpignan est aussi une ville qui bouge en été, malheureusement pour nous à partir de juillet avec des concerts et spectacles dans tout le centre ville les jeudi, à voir pour une prochaine fois...

Pour le reste l'installation est parfaite et propre, la décoration est agréable, on se sent comme chez soi.

Tout le monde se joint à moi pour vous remercier pour ces supers vacances.

Je recommande.

A great place

  • 5 of 5

The villa did not disappoint. A great deal of thought has gone into its design and development. It's comfortable throughout, and our group enjoyed all the facilities - including the pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and table tennis etc. We also brought a lightweight badminton set which was fun.

It's an attractive area (easy to get to from Perpignan, and not too far from the sea), and we would particularly recommend Ceret and the river walk there. What did the kids enjoy most? Aqualand.....

Magali is a considerate and generous hostess, and we would recommend a massage - a real treat.

Highly recommended, and we hope to return.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We have tried to explain to our friends and family back home that Villa Magali is of a much higher standard than even what’s shown on the website. It is only when you actually arrived that you can fully appreciate the beautiful garden and its surroundings, as well as the spacious, open-plan accommodation.

Our party of three American families (6 adults and 5 children) had an exciting time exploring the region, even though we could have just stayed at the holiday home with all it has to offer!

The children had many things to occupy themselves with in the garden, which seemed to be a paradise for all ages with the pond, hammock, ping pong table and, of course, swimming pool. As for us adults, we were able to fully relax knowing our children were having a great time in safety.

All in all, we had a totally zen-like experience on our second visit to your beautiful home. And I had a massage from you as well! Wow! Could not have been more perfect. Our children adored you (and once again your chocolate mousse) and my husband actually relaxed! We are looking forward to visit number three; we are told there will be even more improvements, such as the jacuzzi being moved to the pool area to create the perfect poolside ambiance.

Perfect for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Magali for your warmth and hospitality while hosting the perfect holiday (which is a lot to ask for a group of 6 adults and 4 kids!). We got on with you straight away and the kids loved you too!

The kids had a great active time playing in the pool, as did we at the ping pong table. We adults had the most relaxing time too, being able to get away from it all and be closer to nature. The garden was lovely, with details down to the hammock and pond at the bottom of the garden, all with the idyllic backdrop of the mountains and vineyards - breathtaking!

There were so many options of relaxing things to do, even without leaving the villa. The jacuzzi was great for taking a break from the sun or the pool, and Magali’s massage was a brilliant compliment to the rest of it.

Inside, an open-plan living space which opened out onto the pool, suited the large group very well. The surrounding area was also perfect for the group, as we were able to explore the quaint surrounding villages, and the kids had a great time in Argelès, a town boasting a wonderful beach with all the water sports fun you could ask for. A couple of us also ventured over the Spanish border to explore the historic town of Girona which was only 1 hour away, while the kids were taken out in the opposite direction to the African safari.

I will definitely be coming back as soon as I can get away, and look forward to seeing the next improvements that have been made to the villa, and to tasting more of the local wines and of course Magali’s famous chocolate mousse once again!
