"It felt like home"
Spent 4 weeks at Lorinda's apartment and didn't want to leave! It was very well-equipped and clean, very handy for walking down to the town (and good exercise walking back up) and a view to die for from the balcony.
Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

"Clean, well equipped modern apartment with lovely view of vineyard and mountains"
We spent one week here in July and would recommend it highly. Lorinda's appartment has everything you need - washer, dryer, DVD/stereos, maps, books, travel information - its all at your finger tips. The apartment has a lovely balcony overooking a vine covered valley and looking out to the mountains beyond - one / two minute drive to marina and beach - would need a car / scooter/ bikes however as the apartment is on a steep hill above banyuls so it would be e.g. 15 min walk to beach but probably 30 mins back up (which is hard if its hot!). Great location overall - we would return again if back in this great part of Catalonia/France.
The advantage of being situated on the hillside is that you get wonderful views and stunning sunsets. It is also very peaceful and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the town which is still only 5 minutes away and you can use the free car parking in the riverbed beside the beach.

"Great clean place, great facilities and fantastic views."
This apartment is excellent. Everything you need is readily available and very practical. The shower is first class. We especially appreciated the air conditioning which can be used both in the bedroom and main living space. As others have said before, the view from the balcony is fantastic especially in the late evening. We would sit out there reading and enjoying a cool drink, looking out over the mountains and vinyards.
The garage below has parasols, mats and other beach necessities which saves you having to buy these. A cool bag is also provided and for those with a rental car easy and safe on street car parking.
Apartment in a quiet area, with a great walk around through the vinyards which takes about 50 minutes. It is only five minutes down hill to centre of town and the restaurants/bars. Great time was had by all including my two daughters who joined us for a few days in the second week. One small drawback was the absence of a 'teapot' but I cannot fault this apartment as it is a really first class place. Thanks,Tom and Lucinda.
The tea pot is in place, thanks for pointing it out.

"Great place to stay to enjoy Banyuls-sur-Mer and as a base for touring the area."
Everything provided for a comfortable and relaxing stay - wonderful place to come back to after a day of sightseeing and just sit and enjoy the panoramic view from the balcony. Very good internet connection and lots of videos, books and puzzles provided. Pet friendly with immediate access to various walks. The area has lots to offer in the way of sights and scenery and is quite unspoiled. All in all would very highly recommend this excellent property.

My wife and I booked this comfortable, modern and well equipped one bedroom apartment over the internet and although photos were available we could never be completely sure what awaited us. In this case our accommodation lived up to more than all expectations especially with its panoramic view looking out over vinyards, green hills and distant villages and each day being capped off by a breathtaking sunset. This part of southern France, much to our surprise and delight, gets more than its share of sunshine in winter and surprisingly little rain between November and January. Banyuls is one of several delightful coastal towns between the Spanish border and the bigger city of Perpignan so there is much to explore both in France and just south of the border inside Spain all of which can be readily reached by car, train or bus.
Thank you Lorinda for greetings us so warmly upon our arrival and providing two weary travellers with a wonderful fresh baguette and a bottle of local wine the moment we stepped in the door. Liz and Mike Busch from Vancouver, Canada

"Ideal appartment close to everything"
We had a great stay at this apartment. It exceeded our expectations and after a long long drive, it was fantastic to be welcomed into a place that had everything we needed. Everthing was catered for, we had all the utensils and cooking equipment you could ask for. There was a CD player and DVD player (which we didn't use as the view of the Pyrenees was too good to miss). This place would be nice for couples/friends/families etc.
The garage was great for the motorcycle and very secure, beach equipment and mats etc was provided so really we didn't need to buy or bring anything extra with us. We had a lovely time and will certainly come back.
