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.

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!
