Le Pommier at Can Llouquette
Gite | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Relax on your own private terrace or by the pool with a book, take a stroll around our fields, enjoy evening meals al fresco to the sound of owls and the river with a bottle of fine local wine. Take a walk to the village along an isolated road with spectacular views, for fresh baguettes and coffee. Or have fun exploring the forest, wading along our river, having picnics on its banks or lounging in hammocks in the shade.
Le Pommier is on ground level below the old Farmhouse, and is suitable for a couple, two singles or a couple with a small child. It has been freshly renovated and includes a double bedroom, a private shower/wc a kitchen and living room. Very quiet and private, Le Pommier also has its own entrance and terrace.
We have three accommodation units (gîtes) which are all very private, separate from one another, totally self-contained and with their own outside spaces/terraces. Le Pommier is one of the three.

The swimming pool is only available from May to Sept.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region
We are situated in the southern-most region in France, with sunshine throughout the summer and winter, averaging over 300 days per year!
At the heart of this department - is Mount Canigou (muntanya regalada or 'fortunate mountain' in Catalan) - which dominates the horizon from almost every vantage point.
We are at the foot of Mount Canigou, the first Pyrenean mountain in the chain that stretches east to west along the south western border between France and Spain. We are only 30 miles from beautiful Mediterranean beaches and villages. We are also only a few minutes traffic-free drive from lovely Spanish market towns.
The area around Perpignan is the hottest part of France (and can reach between 35C and 40C in high summer). At 750m altitude, our climate is slightly cooler than that of the plains and environs around Perpignan. You will have warm days in a hot sun and yet night time temperatures which allow you to sleep comfortably with a sheet or light duvet!
So you will be lulled to sleep by the sound of our river, not air-conditioning!
Montferrer, our nearest village (at 1.5 miles away), is situated on the flanks of Mount Canigou and approximately 30 miles from Perpignan and the coast. You can actually see the coast from the village. It has a cafe/small shop where you can get your breakfast provisions as well as a few extras. It also has a lovely small, family-run restaurant.
There are many other beautiful small market towns like Ceret, Prats-de-Mollo, St Laurent de Cerdans, Camprodon (in Spain) and Besalu (also in Spain). We advise shopping in Prats-de-Mollo (16km) or Camprodon ... as the drive is beautiful and you are unlikely to see more than a handful of cars. Both have markets and good butchers, boulangeries as well as supermarkets etc.
Famous cities like Carcassone, Toulouse, Montpellier, Girona, and Barcelona are also within easy reach of the house for day trips. Barcelona can be reached within 2hrs 15mins.
Just outside Perpignan, on the Côte Vermeille (this part of the Mediterranean coast) you will find many long sandy beaches thronging with life in the summer, as well as secluded coves and picturesque bays that are quiet even in the tourist season.
