Welcome to our house.
In the last valley in France just a short 30 minute drive from the Spanish border.The area of the Haut Vallespir in the beautiful Pyrenees Orientales is an unspoiled area of France offering a laid back life style. We are fortunate that not only are the French and Spanish beaches within easy reach but there are also skiing opportunities in winter not only French resorts but also Spanish and Andorran. The nearest French beach at Argeles sur Mer is just over an hour away with the famous town of Colliure being not much further. The
beautiful sandy bay of Rosas in Spain is a ninety minute drive. You can reach Vallter 2000 skiing resort in about 60 minutes.
There is a good golf course, Falgos just over a thirty minute drive. The Vallespir itself is renowned for it's thermal spas. Prats de Mollo la Preste, Amélie les Bains and Le Boulou.
It was built in the 1970ies but since we purchased it in 2003 we have enlarged and modernised it. It is set in 17500 sq.metres of land. The views of the mountains gently meandering down to the Mediterranean are truly breathtaking. It is secluded but not isolated. There are neighbours a five minute walk away. There are quite a number of different nationalities in the area, French, Brits, Belgians, Germans, Dutch etc.
From the covered patio you enter the fully fitted kitchen with loads of cupboards and worktop space. THE dining area has room for a large table ideal for entertaining. The log burner is great for cosy winter evenings. From there you access the 28 sq.m lounge with sloping ceiling and wood beams, 2 double patio doors inviting the outside in and log burner. There is a large hallway with toilet and utility room with the central heating boiler. A door leads to the rear green.

The house with its en-suite bedrooms would be suitable as a b&b . We used it successfully for many years as a gite business.
We are fortunate to have a large choice of airports. Perpignan is 90 minutes, Beziers about 2 hours, Carcassonne about the same. Toulouse is a bit further at under 3 hours as is Montpelier.. We also have Girona in Spain at about 2 hours and Barcelona can be reached in less than 3 hours.
The high speed train stops at Perpignan for Paris and Barcelona and can also be caught at Figueres, about the same distance. The motorway can be reached in under an hour.
