About Lisa Temperley

After spending a year travelling the world looking for the best place to retire we decided that this beautiful region of France was the place to be.

We have been welcoming visitors for 9 years now and love having people of all ages and nationalities stay at the Villa. The number of visitors that rebook each year confirm that the guests love the house as much as we do.Please take a look at the reviews on TripAdvisor to see what our clients think about Villa Fleurie.

Lisa Temperley purchased this villa in 2009

Why Lisa Temperley chose Céret

After living and working in London for many years we decided to travel the world for a year looking for the ideal location for early retirement. Nowhere could beat the combination of proximity to the sea and also to the mountains, beautiful climate and fantastic local produce.

In the winter we can be on the ski slopes in 90 mins. and in the summer on the beach or a golf course within 30 mins.

The valley in which Ceret is situated is a hidden gem. Covered in fruit trees of all descriptions including the famous Ceret cherries as well as vines for the distinctive local wine.Cyclists love the fact that we are in the foothills of the Pyrenees and challenging rides start right outside the property.

What makes this villa unique

The owners live at the property on the upper floor which means that the property and pool is kept in good condition at all times. However you have complete privacy and exclusive use of the pool and extensive gardens. Unless you need something you will only see the owners for a few minutes when watering the pots around the house each evening, or when uncovering the pool each morning.

The Villa is a perfect blend of quiet rural location with spectacular views but with the convenience of being a 2 min. drive to the beautiful town of Ceret which has full amenities including charming restaurants as well as substantial supermarkets for provisions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I have just returned home after my 5th visit to VIlla Fleurie. Whether in the spring or late summer I never get tired of looking at the wonderful view or swimming in the heated pool. Can't wait until next year

Lovely house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The property is very nicely done, and the two new bathrooms are excellent. The pool is very clean and just the right temperature. Lisa and Peter are very welcoming and have plenty of suggestions of things to do in the area. Ceret is a beautiful town with an excellent Saturday market, plenty of shops and places to relax and eat out. Our children (7, 7 and 4) enjoyed visits to the beach at Argeles and loved the adventure area at Saint Jean Pla de Corts. An excellent two weeks enjoyed by all.

Fantastic in every respect.

  • 5 of 5

Everything about Villa Fleurie was great. Lisa and Graham were fantastic hosts throughout our stay. The villa is in a fabulous location, entirely secluded, but easily accessible to Ceret. Spotlessly clean, well equipped, a great pool etc etc etc, we were truly sorry to leave and can't recommend highly enough.

Perfect, once again!

  • 5 of 5

Once again a perfect stay at Villa Fleurie, and fantastic hosting from Peter and Lisa again. This time we brought friends who also agree it was the best villa th had ever stayed in. The fact that everything has been thought of, and nothing is too much trouble just makes everything great. After we just mentioned that the mozzies were a bit bitey in the evening this year, Peter arrived with a new state of the art insect repellent device that really made a difference! Thank you for such great service and care for us. The kids have now started referring to the Villa as 'our French summer home'! I think it's safe to say they feel very at home here, and so do we. See you again next year!

Another lovely holiday at Villa Fleurie

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Villa Fleurie and it just gets better every time. The villa is well equipped and tastefully decorated. The new bathroom is gorgeous and adds further quality to an already wonderful villa.

The views from the terrace, where we ate all our meals, blow you away! We spent many evenings on the terrace with a bottle of wine or two watching the colourful sunsets and the ever changing cloud-scapes feeling totally relaxed.

The pool and the lounging area around it are perfect for lazy days enjoying the sunshine.

Ceret, a lovely serene town, is an easy walk down the hill, with many shops, cafes, patisseries and restaurants. Evenings in Ceret are lively and family friendly. The Saturday market is a must-do; it's one of the best French markets!!

Lisa and Peter are amazing hosts and their desire for you to have the perfect holiday doesn't tire one bit. They are there if you need them but ensure you have the privacy you need to enjoy a perfect holiday.

We love Villa Fleurie and will definitely be coming back!
