Description from owner

Beautiful modern large 3 bedroom house with integral garage located in a peaceful village but just 8km away from the beaches. House is fully equipped with all mod cons and enjoys private front and back gardens complete with brick-built barbecue and fully tiled terrace for al-freso dining during those long summer evenings. Enjoy the views of the snow-topped Pyrenees from the first floor balcony whilst enjoying a coffee (or something stronger!) on the bistro table & chairs.

The house is a 5 minute walk from the village heart of St Genis de Fontaines, which offers a playground for children, a boulodrome, an assault course, two tennis courts, river fishing, cycling and rambling paths, horse riding. There is a market on Mondays and Fridays selling local produce. The village is famous for its 10th century Romanesque Abbey, the Saint-Michel. Enjoy wine tasting at the 6th generation vine producer in the village, who has won several gold medals for their fine but reasonably priced wines.

Several excellent fine sandy beaches run from Argeles sur Mer (8km away), including St. Cyprien and Canet Plage - convenient for family entertainment, nightlife and watersports activities - so you can enjoy days out on the bicycles (available for hire nearby) exploring all of the many family friendly beaches all along the coast and the Aqualand resort nearby.

With 3 large bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms with walk-in shower units, the property is very suitable for a family - the two single beds can open up to two further beds, making a family of 6-8 persons very easy to accommodate.

High chair and cot included.

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Languedoc Roussillon Region of France is an undiscovered gem filled with breathtaking coastline, some of France's best cuisine, rich Medieval history and amazing architecture like chateaux (castles) and cathedrals.

Bordering Provence, the Languedoc Roussillon is just as charming and beautiful with the Mediterranean and Pyreneees, but is less tourist-ridden and less expensive. France's most up and coming wines are from this region.

The region borders the Mediterranean Sea to the east and the Pyrenees Mountains to the south and benefits from an exceptional climate (being the sunniest region of France) and has an unusually rich wildlife, a spectacular coast, excellent beaches and watersports, golf courses, several impressive ski resorts, and a surprising history. Things to see include mountains, rivers and lakes, ancient cities, towns, villages, thermal springs, abbeys, and cathedrals, châteaux and castles, notably the famous mountain fortresses popularly known as Cathar Castles.

The magnificent vistas of the Côte Vermeille (a short drive from the house) have inspired some of the world’s most famous artists—indeed, they sparked an entire style of painting. It’s easy to see why. As you stand at one of several overlooks, the Mediterranean crashes several stories below. Craggy mountains pierce the sea. Steeply sloping vineyards speckle the landscape and crowd the coastline. Spain’s rugged shore, the Costa Brava, can be spotted just to the south.

Saint Genis des Fontaines

The Domaine des Alberes is situated in the Pyrenees-OrientalesLanguedoc-Roussillon, a hot dry area of south west France where the sun shines approximately 300 days a year. It is 10km from the coast where there are long sandy beaches and has stunning views of the snow-capped Pyrenees mountains. There are historic sites and towns nearby and it is approximately an hour and a half from some French ski resorts.

There are many opportunities for walking or you might like to hire bicycles next to the large supermarket, Champion, which is just on the outskirts of the village on the way to the beaches at Argeles sur Mer. Along the coast there are several resorts with promenades and long sandy beaches, although you may prefer to visit the delightful fishing village of Collioure, one of the pearls of the Mediterranean, made famous by artists such as Matisse, Dali and Picasso, the summer castle of the Kings of Mallorca, anchovies and the sweet Banyuls wine. South of Collioure you come to Banyuls sur Mer, where you can take the coast road into Spain for lunch.

If you enjoy playing golf there are courses at St.Cyprien (www.opengolfclub.com/Fr/mhh/) near the coast, and two excellent courses approximately less than an hour's drive away near Figueres in Spain. They are Torremirona (www.torremirona.com) and Peralada (www.golfperalada.com). All three courses have recently hosted the qualifying rounds for the European PGA. Alternatively there is the hilly, challenging course at the Falgos resort (www.falgos.com) in the Pyrenees mountains.

Incidentally, the Dali museum in Figueres is a must.

You may prefer to visit some of the medevial villages, such as the walled village of Villefranche Conflent. From here you can take the Little Yellow Train into the Pyrenees mountains.

For children there are the beaches, holiday clubs, water sports, zoos and Aquasplash at Canet Plage (about 20 mins drive).

In St Genis de Fontaines itself, the village offers a playground for children, a boulodrome, an assault course, two tennis courts, river fishing, cycling and rambling paths, horse riding. There is a market on Mondays and Fridays selling local produce. The village is famous for its 10th century Romanesque Abbey, the Saint-Michel.

The village has a full range of shops, banks, tabacs, post office, chemists, doctors, dentists, supermarkets, cafes, boulangaries, patisseries, restaurants and bars.

Also aim to visit Ceret, a friendly and typical Catalan town with its traditions, architecture, and gastronomy. It is also a most attractive place, with its narrow cobbled streets and pretty pastel coloured houses baked by the sun.

“We have had 4 fantastic holidays in this lovely, well-equipped villa”

Reviewed 27 Oct 2011

Maison des Oranges is a lovely family home in a nice, quiet residential area, with the local quaint village with lots of amenities just a short walk away.The house has been perfect for us - very clean, well equipped and such comfy beds! The satellite Sky TV, DVD and wifi make it a real home from home. We visited lots of different local attractions, from beach days, seaside resorts and coastal & mountain walks, to historic buildings and local villages, all within a short drive or even on our bikes through the vinyards! We have been to this villa four times now - we have taken the grandchildren on one occasion and they really enjoyed the local Aqualand park, the seaside resort of Argeles, and the inflatable toddler pool in the back garden! There are lots of nice restaurants in the village and nearby villages, and we made the most of the BBQ facilities at the house, topped us with wine from the nearby vinyards. The house is truly a wonderful pied-a-terre!
