Possibly the smallest B&B in France?
An old water tower converted to offer accommodation for two persons.
Our property is situated in a protected area of outstanding natural beauty less than 1 km from the medieval village of Montalba le Chateau and is set in 3.2 Hectares of informal gardens and woodland. It is a quiet, peaceful setting full of wild animals and birds. From the tower you can walk out through our garden or through our almond orchard or venture into our Cedar wood, we are surrounded by vineyards and the Garigue full of wild herbs and flowers just waiting to be explored.
The old water tower, some 100 meters from the main house, sits on one of the many grass terraces. It is simply furnished in country style and offers a bedroom with double bed, a small lounge area and bathroom en suite, The adjacent terrace is shaded with the addition of a waterproof sail and has an outdoor kitchen with a gas barbecue/oven and plancha, electric hot plates, refrigerator and sink with hot and cold water. We haven't cluttered the tower up with irons/ironing boards, hair dryers etc, but all are available.
Each morning we can bring breakfast to you set on your terrace at a time to suit your plans for the day.
A salt water swimming pool is available in summer months.
The area is ideal for walking and for the more energetic, cycling, canyoning, white water rafting and horse riding all close by. The Cathar castles are within easy reach and there are many other places of archaeological interest. The Spanish border is just 45 minutes away and Figueres (the Dali museum) less than an hour. Collioure, the famous fishing village with connections with Picasso or Port Leucate, famed for its oysters are within easy reach.
