Located in the sunniest and southern most part of France, in the friendly village of Sorede which is only twenty minutes from the Spanish border in the foothills of the Pyrenees, this comfortable family home allows you to enjoy two countries and cultures at the same time.

We stayed here for the second time this summer, and enjoyed the villa more this year. There is now air conditioning which is blissful after hot mornings and afternoons round the pool, and makes the nights a lot easier to sleep through. Nicely refurbished ground floor bathroom, plenty of outside space, nice and comfortable outside furniture and of course a...

About the neighbourhood
You will be spoiled for choice for activities and lunch and dinner venues. Golf, tennis, horseriding, fishing, watersports and waterparks are all within minutes of the house. The village is 'buzzing' with activity and offers everything you need without getting in the car.

There are six good village restaurants and bars with summer entertainment and Tuesday and Friday morning markets. Shop locally, or buy fresh fish and shellfish straight from the boats at Port Vendres to throw on the BBQ. The old coast road is an absolute treat, with spectacular views of the Mediterranean.

Travel inland to the beautiful mountain village of Ceret with its Spa and Modern Art Gallery, or north, to the vibrant Catalan City of Perpignan (30 minutes), Narbonne(1 hour) or Medieval Carcassonne, w...
