About the Owner

Graeme and Michele are a recently retired couple living in the house in which the apartment is situated.

Graeme is a retired architect, who designed this property.

One of his main interests now is painting the beautiful views of this area, mainly in water-colours.

Michele who was brought up around here, is involved in tourism during the summer season. It has been her life long dream to return to the area where her mother came from.

a perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful fortnight in Montbolo with Graeme and Michele, enjoying all of the sights that are mentioned here and more. The area turned out to be ideal for the “active holidaymaker” with lots of good walking destinations within a radius of 30 kms. There are many pics to climb without any difficulties but with great views, and there is a great of variety of walks to do for keen hikers, including the coastal paths. Also the enthusiastic cyclist who likes to conquer a col or two will enjoy these surroundings tremendously. Returning to the apartment and enjoying a glass of wine on the large terrace with its spectacular view was always a pleasant treat after an exhausting but exhilirating daytrip.

  • 5 of 5

We found this apartment to be perfect for our stay in Montbolo, being located on a hillside overlooking Amelie with gorgeous views to the sea, yet well placed for trips to the coastal resorts; the historic inland towns of the Tech & Tet valleys; the north east coast of Spain and Pyrenees.

The recently constructed apartment was clean, comfortable, and quiet and the owner was very helpful with advice on what to see and where to go.

The village restaurant is just 150m from the apartment which allows sampling the local wines without driving!

We would definitely recommend this property to our friends & family and anyone looking for a peaceful holiday in South Languedoc.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We spent an fabulous week in this wonderful apartment. We found it spotlessly clean, spacious and well equipped. The french doors open onto a large private terrace with incredible views over the valley right down to the sea. We spent hours sitting with a glass of wine admiring the view and watching the changing weather. Use of the owners pool was a bonus. The area is especially great for walking, sightseeing around the historic villages and visiting the wineries! Collioure and Port Vendres on the coast are a 'must see.' Graeme and Michele the English owners are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We recommend the local restaurant/bar which is only a few minutes stroll away.

Bel appartement, parfait pour les balades en montagne et pas top loin des plages.

  • 3 of 5

Endroit calme et reposant.

L’appartement correspond à la description, superbe terrasse d'où l'on a une vue magnifique.

Seul inconvénient aucun commerce dans le village même pas de dépôt de pain ce qui contraint à emprunter la route sinueuse pour se rendre à Amélie.

Les propriétaires sont charmants.

Location

From the Owner

We bought land in the tranquil village of Montbolo which is perfect for unwinding with the stunning views over the countryside, the peaceful village and the beautiful sunrises. Graeme has designed a versatile property which enables them to live on the top floor, with an apartment below. The living accommodation is all on the front of the house, to be able to enjoy the best views, particularly the sun rises coming up above the Mediterranean.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The Mediterranean is 25 miles away and the vibrant coastal town of Collioure with the famous "Artists walk" and many restaurants. There are long sandy beaches at St Cyprien, Argeles and Le Racou and not to be missed is the coastal drive through the villages of the Cote Vermeille and on to the Spanish villages of the Costa Brava. It is just a short drive to the Spanish border, to Figures, the Salvador Dali museum and the charming resort of Llanca, Roses and Cadaques.

Travel:

Our two nearest airports are: Perpignan airport and Girona airport, although the airports of Bezier, Montpellier, Carcasonne and Barcelona are between 100 and 200 miles away.

The use of a car is essential whether driving your own car through France or hiring a car locally.

Distances:

The spa town of Amelie les Baines is approximately 3 miles from Montbolo in the valley, the larger town of Ceret and the Museum of Modern Art is a further 5 miles towards the coast. Going west up into the mountains leads to Prats de Molo and the Spanish border 40 miles away.

Further Details:

Montbolo has a small friendly restaurant. Shops, supermarkets and restaurants can be found in the nearby towns and villages.

There are a variety of walks in all directions from the village. Either through the oak forests around Montbolo, to the spa town of Amelie-les-Bains, or up onto the foothills of the Canigou.
