Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Villa Jasmin is a deceptively spacious modern architect designed 4 bedroomed, fully air-conditioned property situated on an elevated and magnificent plot overlooking the historic wine village of Fitou. It can comfortably and cost effectively accommodate two families of four – providing the dual benefit of spacious open plan living with the privacy of two double bedrooms on each floor.
Previous guests have marvelled at the fantastic panoramic sea, lake and mountain views from the property not to mention the unique illuminated 10th Century Chateau directly opposite the villa which provides the most spectacular setting for enjoying a night time glass of local wine on the front patio or first floor private balcony.
The villa has been built with luxury living in mind – the furnishings and fittings being to the highest standard throughout. The large open plan lounge, dining room, kitchen provides the perfect setting for a large group to enjoy indoor entertainment and dining and a number of outdoor terraces have been thoughtfully created to capitalise on outdoor living.
Full width patio windows provide wonderful views from the ground floor – whether sat in the comfort of the soft leather settees or sat at the large, modern glass dining table. The patio immediately outside the lounge/dining room has a granite fire-pit table and large comfortable chairs to soak up the views at any time of the day or night. The kitchen has all mod-cons and is equipped to the highest standards to accommodate the requirements of the most discerning chef. There is also a double electric George Foreman grill available for use.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor – one twin and one double – both with patio doors to the garden and there is a bath with shower and separate toilet. On the first floor, there are two further bedrooms – one with a king bed and a patio door to a large private balcony overlooking the swimming pool, the Mediterranean, the Chateau and Pyrenees mountains. The other bedroom has twin beds and views over the lake. There is also a travel cot for use by our guests. There is also an open shower and toilet in the large first floor bathroom

The local vignerons will gladly let you sample their offerings as you wind your way through the village.
The kidney shaped swimming pool has terraces all round and there are ample loungers and garden furniture to fully capitalise on the sunshine from early morning into the early evenings.
