About Suzanne Molony

I am an Australian national with many European connections, particularly in France and GB.I have lived in France for over 6 years and my two children were born in Paris.

I have worked in Senior Management in USA/NYC & Finance & again on relocation to the UK. In addition to a varied career and life, my last (and still) professional work is in Medical Administration.

I and my family have long experience with renting properties, 25+ years, both short term and long term. The most successful and interesting of which was rental over many seasons for the Wimbledon Fortnight to Tennis Officials and the Top-seeded Tennis Players. All very exciting and hugely demanding as a Landlord.

I enjoy relaxed, outdoor life. I find that there is more than enough though to occupy myself, my family and friends with outddoor activities and visits to the museums here in PO and in Spain. In addition, I have friends in the region, both French, Catalan and English speaking and find everyone very welcoming and encouraging. We at the Residence frequently have informal gatherings to discuss how to best look after our guests, exchange advice and information. We can then recommend guests to our friends, knowing they will get the same quality, if our own apartment is already booked for their dates.

I have been renting properties/Gites from other owners (mostly French) for over 40 years in France, so have a good knowledge of 'how it works" I feel.

I can speak reasonable French, though sometimes with an Ozzie accent it has lead to some interesting interpretations!!

I am very keen that the property is well maintained & that guests are impressed and pleased with the quality of the furnishings and equipment. I chose this Residence also due to it's high standards & proximity to many interesting areas. It is considered a 'luxury' Residence according to French standards.

Suzanne Molony purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Suzanne Molony chose Pyrenees-Orientales Coast

I first discovered this area many years ago and have visited often over the following decades.

It is an unique area of France in that it is at the foothills of the Pyrenees while having some of the best sandy beaches on the French Mediterranean coast.

There is so much to do and so many opportunities to partake in all types of outdoor activities, from water sports to land sports. Many historical monuments, museums, cultural activities, festivals that it is really quite impossible to do them all at one visit.

Most of all, it is the weather. Forecasts are for 300+ days of sunshine a year.No wonder the world's largest solar discs are located in the mountains nearby.Yes, we do have some windy cycles, but it is possible to shelter from these when outdoors. This is what keeps the air so pure.

What makes this apartment unique

I bought this particular apartment as it is very well located to transport amenities.However, the apartment itself is quiet,overlooking the marina/garden so although public transport is nearby, there is not the usual rushing and noise of passing traffic.

It's a great area for families. With many family centred activities.Numerous shops 2 mins walk from the front door.

More activities and shopping than can possibly be explored in one or two stays.

The mountain valleys are spectacular, particularly in Spring, with plenty of walks all levels, also all areas-along seacoasts to mountain peaks.The nearby bus can, with a connection, take you to the Perpignan airport.It can also take you to the RR at Perpignan where you can take the TGV to Paris/Barcelona. Via train from Narbonne and Montpelier it is possible to connect to many other areas of France. There is water, water everywhere, with a large pool, lagoon and sea. Sailors can hire a boat easily and golfers can try out the challenging St Cyprien Golf Course. Not to mention the numerous seafood restaurants and local produce for 'foodies' . There is also, by the way, a very good selection of gluten free and vegetarian products in the supermarkets and there are in fact, 'Bio' shops around which cater to both person's wanting organic products of all types and those on vegetarian diets.

But what we all like the best is the wonderful blue skies and mild weather. A note on the wind, being near several mountain ranges with wide valleys there is the inevitable Tramontana which does blow, mostly in March and November. This is true for both the north and south of the Pyrenee mountains in this region. However, when it does, the skies are always cloudless and it is possible to find a sheltered area to explore when this happens. Collioure is one such place. Beaches are best visited in the morning and then the pool in the afternoon. For market information: http://anglophone-direct.com/markets-in-perpignan/

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thought your apartment was very comfortable and extremely well appointed

and equipped.

The location next to the commercial centre was also very convenient.

Our weather was varied to say the least, ending with 4 days of the

tramontana wind but with lovely clear skies.

We did see Carcassonne, Montpellier, and some of the Cathar castles as well

as Collioure.

We played two rounds of golf on the St Cyprien course which

were very enjoyable and challenging.

The restaurant at the Grande Stade, la main a la pate, was the best we

sampled in the area.

All in all we had a very nice time, but there is still a lot left for us to

see in future should we return.

Summer sun

  • 5 of 5

Excellent well equipped apartment with the benefit of two bathrooms and two balconies. Great view over the marina and short walk to a range of shops/restaurants.

The pool was quiet during our stay though a second key would have been useful if we didn't all go down at once.

Both the beach and main harbour were in walking distance taking around 20minutes

Ideally located for trips along the coast and into the hills.

Fully Equpied and Excellent locale

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

As advertised, clean, tidy and tastefully decorated. Close to shops, restaurants and only 10 mins walk from the beach. The pool is clean and "refreshingly" cool. St Cyprien is an ideal location for exploring the Franco-Spanish coast and in September, quiet and easy to navigate. Suzanne was most helpful all through the process and guided a newbie with patience and good humour.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest. That is so very nice of you to post a good review. Also that the apartment you found to be above expectations. We do try to provide guests with all possible amenities that can be available and accommodation in the apartment and make it as comfortable as possible. Like yourselves, many find overlooking the lagoon and the boats to be extremely relaxing. We hope to welcome you again in the not too distant future. Best wishes for the future. Suzanne et al.

Well equipped appartment

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay in this gated complex, 1st time in this appartment but it has been the best equipped by a mile. It has everything that you could possibly need.

We usually fly to Perpignan so we opted for linen and towels which worked perfectly. And there was more than enough to go round for 4 adults

Commercial centre is great; perfect for trying out your french and a couple of fab restaurants.

It was probably our 19th time visiting the area and we totally echo the other reviews. If you are looking for adventure; culture or a quiet break you will find something to suit everyone.

Finally, Suzanne is very helpful; quick at responding and takes very good care of her appartment

Already booked for next year!!

Sun, Sea, relax and fun

  • 5 of 5

This is a superb location for exploring the world of the Pyrenees Orientales and the Pays Catalan, north and south of the border. It is a different world to the other areas of France. Catalan is spoken here.

We were able to walk to the beach through the Capellans residence and it took about 18 mins total with all the beach kit. We met up with a friend and we had a lovely meal at the beach restaurant.

The apartment is lovely and cool in the hot summer months. A nice cross breeze in the apartment, so no need for the drone of the A/C and plenty of up to date appliances and new TV, DVD so it was nice to stay in and have a lovely meal. We went often to the Centre Commercial to buy one of the freshly made dishes of the day to eat these at home with some nice wine and dessert. I went to the hairdressers, English speakers, to have a nice cut and colour in a relaxed atmosphere. We also went to have the spa treatment at the Ile de la Lagune Hotel - 5 stars- and sit and watch the lagoon while having a cocktail in the garden. Heaven

The apartment has two -standard size for this area- bedrooms with very comfortable beds, memory foam type. There is plenty of water and good quality showers. There are lovely plants on the balconies and it is so relaxing to sit and watch the world go by - that is the boats and the comings and goings of the little ferry. It is evident the owner takes great pride and care of this apartment. I understand that it is very cherished as a 'hideaway' for all the owner's family to come and stay so we were keen to take care of it. We also went down for a two day trip to Girona (where there are many Michelin starred restaurants and concerts) which was easy and then we visited some of the coves and medieval towns in the region to the south east of Girona. All so spectacular and easy to do. We love the museums of the area and particularly Collioure and the walks that are mapped to follow the route to the spots that the early Fauvist painters used to paint the area. Good weather mostly, some windy days, no clouds, so we headed to the bays on these days.

Will definitely come again and felt very much 'taken care of' by the generous owner.

Definitely recommended for peaceful getaways.
