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 8 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 Vallespir

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

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!

Another wonderful stay at Villa Fleurie

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Villa Fleurie and slightly earlier in the season than normal. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny days by the pool and beautiful flowers and plants plus we arrived in time for the Ceret Cherry festival! It was great to see the big market and the two day festival was good fun, lively and a great atmosphere. The Villa was perfect as ever, amazing bathroom with the best shower we've ever tried and Lisa & Peter have thought of everything. The Villa has everything you need for self catering, its close enough to Ceret to walk into the town and plenty to do in the area for families and couples alike. Just perfect! Plus we saw lots of amazing wildlife including a Hoopoe bird, a pine martin and a red squirrel! We highly recommend Villa Fleurie, Lisa and Peter are perfect hosts, the area is great for many interests and the local food is delicious!

Lovely house with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We know this part of the world quite well, and we love it. That’s why we keep coming back! We have stayed in a number of houses in various areas in and around Ceret, and they have nearly always been very good. This time though we really have hit the jackpot. We can’t imagine a better place to rent for a holiday. The house is spotlessly clean, very comfortably and tastefully furnished, and absolutely everything has been thought of. The gardens and pool are wonderful, and the views must be the best in the area, with Canigou always there in the distance; and all this just a short walk from the town. Also of course our hosts, Lisa and Peter, are so friendly and helpful, and yet so discreet and unobtrusive.

Late Summer break

  • 4 of 5

Delightful setting with glorious views, hospitably received in accommodation that was generously furnished and immaculately clean, and were very helpfully advised by the unobtrusive owners. Very relaxing at the Villa but we also found plenty to do in Ceret and the surrounding area, resulting in a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

Perfect, generous and special in every way

  • 5 of 5

Wow. What a place, and how fabulously we were looked after by Lisa and Peter. This was definitely our best holiday ever. Everything was perfect for us and we agreed that the one word which describes Villa Fleurie to us is 'generous' - it's all the little touches that make the holiday so much better. Towels are always a problem in villas - not here! Hundreds of beautiful soft huge towels meant we always had plenty for the pool and showering. When we wanted a trip to the beach, the ice box and freezer blocks were right there! The beds and pillows are the comfiest I've ever slept in. The kitchen is better equipped than our home. And the pool is just amazing - sun all day, but beautifully shaded around the edges. And finally, the sunsets and sunrises over Canigou. I could happily live on the terrace of Villa Fleurie for the rest of my life and never get bored of the view. Amazing. We will be back for sure.
