  • Description

    Description

    We have a secluded haven amongst vineyards, fruit orchards and vegetable farms.
    It's a glorious setting with extensive gardens and a large spring water filled heated swimming pool, yet is walking distance to the historic and colourful city of Perpignan and only 10 minutes by car to the Mediterranean's long, sweeping beaches.
    It comprises 3 properties. It can be rented as an individual holiday home or as part of the cluster which is ideal for a large family group holiday.

    We are an English family with 3 children aged 14/13/10. We have been in France for 12 years and both have very relaxed demeanors. James runs the gite business in France and Ilona runs our Landscape Gardening business in London largely from Perpignan.

    When you stay with us we provide a beautiful gite for you to stay in on your own. It has fully equipped kitchen.

    We are both very chilled and happy to be flexible.
