About the property

4 bedroom villa in Le Boulou. Peaceful location for sanity escape

Our home in Les Chartreuses offers a magnificent view of the valley and Alberes Mountains, situated at 855ft altitude. Le Boulou, 3kms away, is a peaceful thermal village where time just seems to stand still. However, there are several good restaurants, bread shops, fresh fishmonger, 2 supermarkets and outdoor French street markets twice a week. This large spacious house allows families and diverse age groups to have privacy, peace and quiet. If some are at the pool, others can enjoy the tranquility of the house. Not too far from the seaside, this holiday villa gives you the best of both worlds, with night life or beach activities, but a quiet environment away from the crowds at the house.

A unique property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful villa, airy and spacious, with gorgeous views and a location that provided near total peace and quiet. . This is a home, not a holiday let, and everything in it was of excellent quality and very luxurious (except perhaps the cutlery which whilst plentiful, was perhaps a little lightweight!). The photos do not do the place justice.

We had a wonderful time here, sitting by the pool, spending days at the beach, visiting places of interest, and generally overindulging in wine, cheese, and local French goodies.

I would certainly recommend this property and will probably be coming back next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. You were wonderful guests and we found the house in perfect condition when we came back down South. I appreciate your comment about the kitchen cutlery and will remove the lightweight items immediately. Actually there was another whole set of knives and forks in the dining room cupboard which would probably have better suited your needs. I didn't think to point that out during the house visit upon your arrival. You are more than welcome to come back next year. Take care, have a great year end. Grace and JP

A great home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a super time in this lovely house. The standard of décor and fittings was very good and we spent many hours in the amazing pool. The balcony was a great place to have breakfast, admiring the view down the valley, and in the evening to watch the sunset. Grace and JP are very friendly!! Happily recommend it to anyone :)

Stunning private villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July and we cannot recommend the villa enough. It is a very private setting and would require a car. However, it is finished to a very high standard and the pool is superb. The added extras like the games room in the basement were terrific but the real gem is the balcony where we had all of our meals and relaxed in the evening. It is very private and is a great base to explore a beautiful part of France and indeed Spain which is only a short drive away. We really enjoyed our stay.
