About Jo Staples

I live in England and love to travel and embrace different cultures whenever I have the opportunity. I enjoy the outdoors - hiking, cycling and swimming especially in the sea. I love to be at the beach and near the coast. Staying at Belle Vue means I can enjoy Mediterranean holidays in a comfortable 'home from home' and I feel relaxed as soon as I arrive.

Jo Staples purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Jo Staples chose Alberes

I have visited 'Les Alberes' area many times as I have family living there and yet I'm still exploring the area and discovering new places each time I visit. Belle Vue is in a quiet traditional village surrounded by vineyards and the mountains which is great because it's peaceful and relaxing and yet close to the beaches and amenities of the Mediterranean coast. You can easily enjoy the mountain villages, historic medieval cities and countryside away from the crowds and yet you are close to the coast when you want to be at the beach.

What makes this bungalow unique

I love the laid back life style of of the mediterranean - sea swimming, late lunches, eating at one of the many restuarants in the balmy evenings and browsing the shops open till late. And the contrast to head inland often on my bike, to enjoy the countryside and vineyards invariably in search of a patisserie or cafe to enjoy a cafe au lait! It's only 30 mins drive from Perpignan airport or 1hr drive from Girona (Spain) so it's very convenient.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely relaxing holiday and the villa was super and perfect for our needs. We especially loved the peace and the fabulous views. It really is in a fabulous location with so much to see and do without having to travel very far. We hope to visit again as both the villa and area really impressed us and have been by far the best on our 3 holidays in Languedoc Roussillon area.

C Deely July 11. (Booked again for Jul 12)

Best equipped villa we've ever stayed at. Very well placed for mountain and coast . Highlights for family with 2 young daughters were 'la fete des cerises' (festival of cherries) in Ceret, Villefranche de Conflent (tour of ramparts and good price tapas), Les Orgues d'Ille, weekend bands at Collioure and 'petite train touristique'. Thanks for beach gear.' Mr & Mrs English May 11.
