About Bob Lucy

I emigrated to France 14 years ago. My first task was to rebuild the 200 year old ruin of a farmhouse Mas Den Gariste. During my stay here I met, fell in love (sorry a bit cheesy but true) and married my wife Helene.

We live in a nearby farmhouse with our animals, 3 horses, 4 cats and our rescued dog Rockie. Anna my 23 y/o step daughter shares our home and life but is soon to start her own adventure with her soon to be husband in a recently purchased town house in nearby Thuir. My own daughters their husbands and my grand children and father visit us and this idyllic region several times a year, so I guess we are very lucky.

Bob Lucy purchased this villa in 2010

Why Bob Lucy chose Pyrenees-Orientales Coast

This is a property on a quiet housing estate and very different to the farmhouse. It allows us to operate in the guests who want to be in and around the beach resorts. The house is located on the edge of the sea town of Argeles. So is right on the coast for families who want this style of vacation.

What makes this villa unique

Benefits of being on the edge of one of the most popular beach resorts in this area of France. You can be on the beach in 5 minutes or stay at home and enjoy your own private pool. Again this is a totally secure pool so safe for families with young children. All local amenities are on your door step.



3km from the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean.


Nearest airports are

Perpignan 30 minutes drive

Montpelier 1 hour 15 mins drive

Further Details:

The house is situated in the beach resort of Argeles so is in walking distance from all the shops.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a lovely family holiday in this property. This spacious, clean, well equipped property was perfect for us as a family of 5. The outdoor area is actually larger than the photos suggest and there is well thought out seating for every time of day. The pool was a perfect size for my children ( ages 12,9 and 5) and of course for my husband and I when it got too hot. The nearby village is attractive and has good restaurants, markets, boulangeries etc. There is a little tourist train than runs to the beach in high season which was fun. August was very busy and we would prefer to come out of season next time. Bob welcomed us at the villa and was always a phone call away if we had any problems.

Lovely house

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house, well fitted out parking available and close to the old town of Argeles (less than 5 mins walk).

Town has good supermarket and good restaurants.

Close to great beeches.

Owner very helpful to any requests.

Would recommend it.

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this property for two weeks and had a great time. Property is extremely well maintained and has excellent facilities. Larger outdoor area than expected and pool was great in the hot weather. Kitchen well equipped and gas BBQ provided. We were met at house on arrival by manager, who kept in contact throughout stay. The house is only a 3 or 4 minute walk from village, with many restaurants, cafes, and bars. The 'plage' and port are also within walking distance. We did not need a hire car because house was so central, and if need be we could use the 'petit train.' Travel from Perpignan airport to the property by public transport was easy, so any holiday at this property can be undertaken without the need of a hire car, which is another benefit. Would definitely recommend a stay at this property.

Très chouette location

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été ravis de cette location à Argelès. La maison est située à cinq minutes à pied du sympathique village d'Argelès où se trouvent tous les petits commerces, marchés, restaurants, cafés et à une dizaine de minutes à vélo des plages (il existe même un raccourci juste à côté de la maison qui permet de ne pas devoir emprunter la route). Une piscine bien entretenue avec des chaises longues en suffisance, un environnement calme, différentes terrasses, les deux salles de douche, une cuisine bien équipée en assiettes, couverts, verres et tasses -ce qui est rare- une belle véranda... il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour passer d'excellentes vacances. Bob et Hélène sont très accommodants et nous ont très bien accueillis. Nous recommandons sans hésitation et reviendrons surement !
