Further details indoors

Accommodation in the house is spread over 3 floors. The entrance on the ground floor leads to two bedrooms, one a double and the other a bunk bedded room and a shower room (often bedrooms are situated at lower levels because it is cooler for sleeping in summer).

The second floor also houses another double bedroom and a bathroom.

The top floor of the house is a spacious, light and airy open plan living area with great views of the surrounding hills and countryside. This layout is ideal for holiday living where delicious local foods can be prepared whilst chatting with friends or family out on the terrace or just relaxing in the sitting area with a glass of wine.

The newly installed kitchen has everything you could need to make your holiday relaxing and enjoyable. The sitting area has two large comfortable sofa beds. The dining area has a table and seating for 6. TV with some English channels.

Leading off from the kitchen is a roof terrace with uninterrupted views to the ancient castle above. There is a large dining table and seating for 6. Also supplied are two comfortable sun-loungers for you to lay back and enjoy the wonderful sunshine.

This house is comfortable both summer and winter, with heating in all rooms and cooling fans available for summer letting. Recently renovated to a high standard, the character of the old house is still apparent in the beautiful restored and exposed roof beams.

Easily sleeping and catering for 6 people, there are also 2 comfortable sofa beds in the sitting area.

Further details outdoors

On the top floor is the spacious living area which spills out on to the roof terrace, equipped with dining table and loungers bringing the outside in.

We have television with some English channels available, to keep the children amused while you sit on the terrace and take in the view.

Corbere

Corbère is a very peaceful village typical of the region, with a village church, boules and tennis courts. It also benefits from having a great Pizzaria (not open all year). The Boulangerie and general store is just a short stroll from the house.

It is ideally situated for walking, cycling and horse riding in the surrounding countryside.

The nearest towns are Ille sur Têt and Thuir both of which are a few kilometres away and have great shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants as well as thriving, lively markets. (Thuir, Saturday morning, Ille sur Têt Friday morning).

At the markets you can buy wonderful local produce, such as peaches and cherries that are widely grown here. The fruit trees in spring are a magnificent sight with a sea of white, pink and red blossom stretching as far as the eye can see. You can also buy fresh from the farm, vegetables, a huge array of cheeses, saucisson, olives and of course a great variety of locally produced wines.

"Excellent!!"

Lovely house, clean and comfortable with everything one needs to make a holiday complete.Quiet village situated in an excellent position for sightseeing. We enjoyed an early morning coffee on the ter… More

We agree, it's lovely to wander to the shop for croissants while the coffee brews and then sit out on the terrace listening to the dawn chorus and admiring the view, heaven!! Don't forget we offer a discount to returning guests.

"Happy Days"

The house is exactly as described and a great choice for a get away. The veiws from the balcony are exactly as shown and the castle is a leisurely 20 minute walk to, with great views from the top. Corbere is an ideal location as it really does open up that part of France for you to explore, with so much to do and see, and you are still only 40 mins drive from Canet Plage. I would highly recommend the house/location, as it definitely captures that small French village essence.

"A lovely relaxing getaway "real France!""

We spent a lovely two weeks relaxing in the quiet little village of Corbere. The accommodation was perfect for us and our 10 year old son, with a spectacular view from the rooftop terrace. Beach and mountains were within easy reach by car. The authentic pizzeria with English speaking owners, two minutes around the corner from the house, is a bonus if you enjoy the odd glass of red wine!
