About Owner

The house was designed and built for us late 2010. The guest apartment is intended for our children and friends, but also for holiday rental.

As this is also our home we have decided to rent out only to couples (one couple only), not to families with children.

Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Owner chose Sorède

The pool is a heated saltwater pool, and we do not us the pool very much when we have guests, so it is mainly yours. Pool heating.

The villa is very near to the village center, with restaurants and local shops.

Sorede is a small village, close to the sea, the wineyards and the mountains.

What makes this apartment unique

A modern apartment, with comfortable beds, secure parking and pool.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment, bright, modern with everything you need. The garden and pool were a great place to relax. If you like walking there are some great walks in every direction. With the sea and lots of great restaurants nearby, what else could you need.

We will certainly try to visit again in the future.

Thank you Ragnar & Regina

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment itself is bright, modern and immaculately clean. We were a little concerned about the salt water pool but it in fact turned out to be a bonus, the water was so refreshing and no sore eyes! We loved Lunar, Ragnar's chocolate brown labrador, what a beautiful dog and so well behaved, she added to the enjoyment of our holiday. Ragnar and Regina were perfect hosts and we enjoyed their company! They were both so helpful and yet discreet, leaving us to relax and enjoy the sunshine and their beautiful pool. We made an overnight trip to Barcelona which was well worth the 2 hour drive, although perhaps too much to do in one day. We would like to return to the area at a quieter and cooler time, to be able to enjoy some of the beautiful walks nearby and visit some of the more popular places with a few less crowds. Overall a lovely relaxing holiday with some amazing meals out, wonderful accommodation and perfect hosts!

First class apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious and very high spec - clean, well furnished and very comfortable, particularly the bed and pillows. It is fully equipped and has everything that you need, including WIFI and internet phone, which was very useful. The shower has a powerful spray.

The pool is heated and a good size and Ragnar makes sure it is cleaned every day. On the covered terrace, there is a varnished wooden table and chairs with padded cushions - very comfortable.The sun beds also have comfortable mattresses and the views are superb.

The only downside is the road noise. The road has a very poor surface and cars, trucks, etc race down as there is no speed limit. Once the road has been resurfaced (scheduled this winter) and a speed limit enforced, the noise shouldn't be noticeable. My husband didn't notice it at all, so most folk probably won't either.

Last year when we stayed at a villa, we were given a list of do's and don'ts! Ragnar and Regina were so welcoming and relaxed about what we did or didn't do. We were shown how things worked and where they were and a bottle of white wine was in the fridge chilling! They were always concerned that everything was OK and joined us for a chat some evenings and sometimes a glass or two of wine or champagne! :) Truly perfect hosts!

Eine wunderschöne Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten bei Regina und Raknar eine wunderschöne Zeit. Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr sympathische und interessante Leute. Die Unterkunft war sehr schön, der Swimmingpool, in dem man auch ausgiebig schwimmen konnte, immer eine gute Erfrischung. Die Wohnung war bestens eingerichtet. In der topmodernen Küche fehlte wirklich nichts. Der einzige kleine Nachteil war die Straße neben dem Grundstück mit gelegentlichem Autoverkehr.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. The traffic is however not to be avoided, but the benefit is that we are within walking distance to the village. This winter the street will also be upgraded and a lower speed limit will be implemented.

Well here we go.We echo the comments from other reviews left for this perfect place to stay

We had a truly lovely time on holiday in Sorede.Apartment was clean and tidy on had all we needed and more.

Pool was fantastic,much bigger than we had imagined.My youngest son had a great time and really improved his swimming skills.

We had fruit from the trees and mint from the garden,we had homemade jam and some lovely wine.

Ragnar and Regina were perfect hosts,friendly but unobtrusive,they had great knowledge of the area.

There is plenty to do within reasonable distance or you can just relax by the pool enjoying the sunshine or play badminton in garden.

Cannot praise the owners enough and really hope to see Ragnar and Regina again next year.

All the best to both of you and Regina keep up your guitar practise ok

"Villa Sorede". Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our 2 week summer holiday at this quite magnificent villa. Having holidayed in France many times before, mainly in the Vendee and Dordogne, this was our first time in Rousillon. After our experiences at “Villa Sorede” it certainly won’t be our last!

The villa itself is first class. Owners Ragnar and Regina have clearly prided themselves on ensuring top quality in everything they provide. It was immaculately clean upon arrival and proved to be absolutely perfect for our family of 4. My wife Kath loved the open plan kitchen/lounge which made the preparation of our daily meals so easy. These were taken on the beautiful patio which overlooks a fantastic garden and one of the major highlights of this accommodation – the incredible pool which, at 10m x 5m, is much larger than you would normally find. Ragnar ensures it is always spotlessly clean and we made sure we used it every day to top up our tans – this included several floodlit late night dips which were very much appreciated.

Ragnar and Regina are exceptional hosts who are extremely discreet in their dealings with you. We found them to be very, very friendly and they have outstanding knowledge of the area that they will gladly provide you with should you need it. Regina is quite rightly proud of her home grown fruit and veg and very kindly provided us with some of them as well as baking us some quite delicious cakes and tarts. These went down a treat with a glass or two of chilled wine!

The village of Sorede is typical of France and has a lovely ambience. We enjoyed a fantastic meal at “La Salamandre” and got to know the owners of “Le Rugby Bar” over several ice cold beers. Having a hire car for the fortnight enabled us to get out and about when we could drag ourselves from the pool and we took the opportunity to visit Collioure (20mins), Perpignan (35mins), Carcassone(90 mins) and Barcelona(120mins). Each has their own special charms and we would highly recommend them to anyone considering visiting this area.

We were very fortunate to have a full fortnight of perfectly blue skies with temperatures averaging 33 degrees which was very much to our liking. Even when we felt a little too hot we always had the comfort of knowing that the luxurious pool and sun loungers were never far away as was our fridge full of iced cold beer and wine.

We look forward to returning and meeting up again with Ragnar and Regina

You can go hiking, swimming, horse riding, bicycling, golfing, boating. Or, simply relax at the pool with a cool drink.

Wine yards and châteaux are plentiful in the region, or you can visit one of the many famous and highly impressive Cathar castles, see medieval cities or enjoy some of the best beaches in France.

Take a short trip to Spain and Costa Brava, with its many small and beautiful white villages.

Spain is also close, with only 40 km, the very interesting city of Figueres, with a big market, tapas bars and the famous Salvador Dali museum or visit Collioure and Banyuls, and continue driving along the coast for lunch at one of the beautiful white villages along the Costa Brava.

If you want to combine an interesting drive with tax free shopping you can easily visit Andorra in one day, at the same time enjoy the fantastic scenery of the of the Pyrenees.

Golf: You can choose between three golf courses near Sorede, two 18 holes and one 9 hole.

Ski: Skiing is approx 1 to 1,5 hours drive away, in Font-Romeu (104 km), and several other famous ski resorts.

You must be aware that we have a 4 year old labrador dog, although very friendly she will be likely to hang around, not at least if there is a chance of anything to eat.
