Mediterranean beach penthouse
Penthouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This is an amazing Mediterranean beach penthouse apartment and the best location in St Cyprien!
A large and luxurious 8th floor, 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom penthouse with a huge terrace on 3 sides facing north, south and west.
The internal floor area is over 115m2 and the terrace adds a further 110m2 to make this one of the largest apartments in St Cyprien.
On the north and south sides you have stunning views of the pristine beach at St Cyprien. One the west side are views of Canigou and the Pyrenees.
The apartment block is effectively on the beach with just a bicycle lane separating you from the sand and sea.
And you are 5 minutes from the international golf course, and a beautiful lagoon and nature reserve. The famous leisure port and all the restaurants, bars and shops in this family-friendly, up-market seaside town are just a few minutes away.
The penthouse has unbeatable views of the sea and mountains from within, and you can step out onto the terrace from every room. It shares the top floor of one of the highest building in St Cyprien (8th floor) with one other apartment. There is full privacy as the terraces are separated by a divider. You are not overlooked by anyone, apart from the birds!
The apartment has been entirely newly furbished for 2013 and offers a new open-plan kitchen and breakfast bar with all new appliances, a magnificent salon with unbeatable views, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms (one en suite) and a separate WC.
Bedroom 1 has a king-sized double bed (160cm) and en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a double bed (140cm), and bedroom 3 has two single beds. Each room is light and airy with full-length windows opening onto the terrace.
There is free wifi and a 42" flat-screen HD TV and a BlueRay/DVD player.
On the terrace you can enjoy splashing in the mozaic-tiled plunge pool or sizzling your meat on the barbeque, or just relaxing on stylish outdoor furniture including table and chairs and sunloungers.
Perfect for families*, there are no roads to cross to get to the beach. On the other side, the apartment overlooks the international St Cyprien golf course. For beginner golfers, there is the fabulous Tropical mini-golf course just opposite. There is a brand new cycle path which runs in front of the building all the way up the coast to Canet Plage or down to the port at St Cyprien. You can stroll along the promenade all the way to St Cyprien Port without crossing any roads.
The apartment is also lovely in autumn and winter, with heating in every room and double-glazed windows. Gorgeous views across to snow-capped Mount Canigou and only 1.5 hours to the Pyreneen ski stations.
* For safety reasons we do not recommend this property for toddlers - the terrace wall is over 1m high and satisfies strict French safety regulations. However we prefer to be cautious. Babies are welcome and there is a cot and high chair. Pets welcome, please check. No smoking, please.

"Wonderful appartment with gorgeous views"
We stayed here for a week in August. The apartment is absolutely charming and has the most amazing views across the sea and the mountains. It is located at the quieter end of St Cyprien and therefore was a peaceful haven after a day out exploring or at the beach. A mere 10-15 minute stroll gets you into the main town centre where there are shops, restaurants etc. The apartment is a 2 minute walk to the lovely beach .. but also well located to explore the region and go up into the mountains. The apartment itself is a fantastic place to stay - spacious, light and all the mod cons you could want. But what really sells this place is the wonderful, spacious terrace that wraps itself around the apartment. It is equipped with comfortable seating, dining area and a plunge pool and it provides sun or shade any time of day - depending on where you choose to sit! Along with the breath-taking views, this place is an absolute winner and I recommend it wholeheartedly - it surely is the best apartment holiday rental in St Cyprien.
So pleased you had a great time and that you loved our beautiful apartment. Penny

"Great appartment with fantastic views"
Stayed at the end of June for 6 nights. The apartment was great, very well equipped and the map on the wall gave us dinner time conversation each night; the panoramic views were fantastic and the double sliding patio doors on each room were great for making the outdoors part of the indoor space. If only all apartments were this good!
Thanks - hope you visit us again! Penny

Really comfortable and well appointed apartment, with a most wonderful outlook. The location suited us more than we expected.close to the sea, easy walking to nearby shops and restaurants simple driving to Perpignan and even into Spain to the lovely city of Girona. The whole of the St Cyprien area is extremely pleasant and has lots to do other than just laying in the sun. We will surely return
Thanks for your lovely comments. Hope to see you again! Penny
