Character Gite with private pool, Pyrénéés-Oriéntales - sleeps 4

by Caroline Manson
(66300 Fourques)

On the outskirts of a typical Catalan village, with views of the Canigou mountain

Overlooking the vineyards to the Pyrénees, this charming gite is literally a haven of peace and tranquility. Forget the stress and unwind as you lie by the private pool; enjoy breakfast on your patio area in the garden and listen to the birdsong;

Take a stroll through the vineyards and watch the beautiful sunsets. Above all, 'relax-you' as my french husband always advises!

The accommodation has a fully fitted kitchen along one wall, with a hatch through to the verandah so you can pass your meals through!

There is a dining table and sitting area (with a corner wood-burning stove and a piano!). The bedroom is cosy and has glazed doors that can be closed for privacy or opened to allow light and access.

Stairs from the sitting area lead up to a mezzanine area where there is a double bed, dressing table, and comfortable sofas.

The gite has been lovingly restored and converted in the traditional style - it has all the amenities you could need but we have kept the Catalan 'character' using reclaimed materials.

The building is attached to the main house but totally separate with no shared amenities - it has its own entrance, private garden, and private pool.

The gite is a 5 minute walk from Fourques, a thriving village with a Spar supermarket, 2 Boulangeries, an epicerie, pharmacy, garage and medical centre.

The area is a haven for nature-lovers with wonderful walks through vineyards and hills. We can offer suggestions or even arrange trips for you - cycling, canoeing, picnics - whatever you want, we will try to arrange it!

Fourques, in the heart of Les Aspres region is just 20 minutes away from Perpignan, 30 minutes from the Mediterranean beaches, 20 minutes from Spain and 1h30 to the ski-slopes (and yes, you can technically ski in the morning and swim in the sea in the afternoon!).

There is a regular bus (costing 1€) between Fourques and Perpignan but we recommend a car. There are also fantastic walks around the region and, of course, the cycle routes.

1000€ per week in summer - also available for long lets (ideal base for house-hunting)!
