Villa Proche Mer
Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Modern detached villa in quiet, peaceful location right next to the Port (leisure marina 150m away) and to the sea (about 300m) with lovely long sandy beaches and palm shaded promenade. The house backs onto open land and trees with views of the Pyrenees. It features a swimming pool, and several large terraces facing south, west and east for catching sun or shade througout the day. A large garden is ideal for children to play in. One large terrace is shaded by a pergola covered with wisteria. The garden has trees and open grassed areas and is open to fields and a woodland area.
The house is thus safe for children (at the end of a cul-de-sac), peaceful and quiet, yet very close to the Port activity and the beach.
Port Argeles, a yachting marina, is 150m away with restaurants, shops, bike hire, scuba diving centres etc. There is a morning market on Tuesdays and Thursdays and there are further markets and more shops in Argeles village, about 2.5km away. The long sandy beach at Argeles Plages is 300m away and is backed by a beautiful promenade with walks and cycling paths.
Port Argeles is at the point where the miles of sandy beaches of the Rousillon coast to the north meet the rocky coastline to the south where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean. Collioure, a beautiful Catalan village nestling in a bay in the rocky coastline and where Picasso, Matisse and Derain painted, is about 5km away. It is possible to walk or cycle through Le Racou and along the footpath above the criques and promentories of the coast and decend to the tiny coves or indeed continue to Collioure.

A typical village, a brightly coloured environment with a Catalan accent, its maze of narrow streets, its church and crenelated belltower (14th C.), its ramparts made of 'cayroux', its traditional market, its handicrafts, its festivals,…
The marina with its squares, shops, restaurants and entertainment events. You will enjoy mooring your boat a few miles from Cap Béar during your holiday at the heart of the Catalan region. All the secrets of Port Argelès will make this port of call a memorable one. The setting is unique at the foot of the Pyrenees, amid vineyards and sun-scorched villages.
The 7km wide, sandy beach, clear waters, and the Albères Mountains dominating the beach. The 12ha pine forest on the seafront and the 3km promenade planted with trees offer great walking opportunities. To the south, in the direction of Collioure, a small paradise – Le Racou (“corner” in Catalan)…
In the autumn and springtime, the beach has plenty of appeal with the sun always present! The light is softer, the beach less packed, and the leisure activities offered by beach clubs more accessible. The delightful rocky coves of Portells and Ouille, serving as a link with the Rocky Coast, offer peace and tranquillity…
