The house is lovely and beautifully furnished, but it is directly under the busy main road to Andorra. Because of this, the traffic noise is constant and there is no privacy in the pool. Alas, there… More

"Gorgeous villa in beautiful surroundings"
What a lovely villa all decked out in Laura Ashley. It has everything you need to have a fantastic self catering holiday. Great kitchen and garden area. We had a lovely BBQ on the large patio surrounded by the mountains. Breakfast outside most mornings watching the yellow train go by. The villa is spacious and ideal for 2-8 people. And being so close to Villefranche de Conflent
is great as the walled village is so lovely. There are lots of places to visit close by and walks from the door. Great stay. Definitely recommended and we hope to go back. The washing machine and tumble dryer made things very easy.
