  • Descripción


    We are an English retired couple with a modern country property in 2.5 hectares, at the Mediterranean end of the Pyrenees, in a quiet and spectacular location near Prades and the Canigou, .

    We have owned the property for 30 years, and as it is in an area with very low rainfall we use our piped irrigation extensively between April and October, supplied from the Canal de Bohère feeder system.

    We have a large family in UK.

    Some light building work. Painting.

    Swimming pool maintenance. Even containing the local over-attentive wild sanglier (boar) tribe who like to dig!
