A fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious, well-equipped and thoughtfully laid-out. There are nice views of Mt Canigou and it is very well-placed for exploring both mountains and coast. It is reassuring that there is a local property manager, though we did not need to call her for anything.

Spacious, clean, provided for everything!!!

  • 4 of 5

Flew in from Girona (spain) and drove on very good, clearly sign posted roads to Sorede. The villa was beautiful, welcome pack informative and useful. Welcome check from Angie who lives nearby was also a nice touch to help settle in. Very quiet getaway, should you wish to simply stay local. A small town centre has the essentials and several places to eat. However Sorede is placed within easy reach of some more lively places and beaches should you want a more active holiday so essentially I think it suits pretty much everyone!. Beverley (owner) was quick to respond to all our communications and I wouldn't hesitate to book with her again. We had a lovely relaxing week here!

5 Star Family villa

  • 5 of 5

A clean well equipped villa in Sorede with everything that you would need for an enjoyable relaxing holiday. The villa has beautiful views of the hills, lovely clean pool, british tv channels, dvd and book library, comfy sun loungers, good showers and new kitchen. Large supermarket and bakery 10 mins drive away. Good restaurants in the village of Sorede and nearby Laroque. Our favourite beach of La Racou was 15 mins drive away. Carcasonne, Collioure and Ceret all worth a visit. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa.

Gorgeous villa that we didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

This is the best villa we have ever stayed in, it was spacious, extremely clean and very well kitted out. The pool was also very clean and well maintained and our children never wanted to leave it to go anywhere else! There are some nice restaurants in the village Sorede and we also found some excellent restaurants in nearby Roque des Alberes. We visited Ceret (a nearby lovely village with great art museum), pretty Collioure and went over the border to Figueres in Spain to visit the Salvador Dali museum. We loved Le Racou beach which was much quieter than Argeles sur Mer and very easy to park at. We also spent lots of time lounging round the villa by the pool as it was such a nice place to be. I would definitely recommend staying in this villa, it was really perfect.

Best villa ever

  • 5 of 5

Great villa!,lovely pool very quiet nice community very friendly neighbours the quaint village it's self is steeped in history and very pretty there's a great bakery that does excellent sour dough bread and pastries!👌some of the staff in the restaurants only speak French and can't understand English. The Center of the village is a 2 minute drive or a 10-15 minute walk from the villa. If the nearest beach is in Aergeles sur mer Aergeles has great beaches and restaurants but there is a carnival on the beach us the summer months. Our favour village was a ritzy beautiful village called coloiair I probably spelt it wrong though!

The village is stunning🌹 it's about a 15-20minute drive from the villa. A car is essential if you want to do day trips or even go to the beach🌴 overall the villa was lovely for our 2 weeks🌺 thank you Beverly😀👍 I would recommend this villa 100%👍
