About the Owner
About Wendy Davey
John and Wendy bought Casa Sola at the end of 2014. It was their long-held dream to move to France and also to own a holiday let.
As extensive users of rental properties they have used that experience to create a place that they hope guests will want to return to.

Why Wendy Davey chose Vallespir
Firstly we love France, the life, the culture, the people and of course the food. Having decided to definitely live the dream we searched a number of areas but every time we came to the Pyrenees Orientale we just got a huge buzz, it's climate and location just ticked all our boxes. With over 300 days of sunshine it was perfect, then the location of Casa Sola being close to the beautiful mountains means we are able to enjoy lovely walks and the stunning scenery.
What makes this villa unique
The location means we have peace, quiet and solitude but we are also close to all we need for day to day living plus the added bonus of easy and quick access to attractions and the coast.
The access to a range of airports nearby is also a benefit enabling friends and family to visit easily.
