This house is in a serene and very private setting ideal for chilling out. The local village has the bare essentials in the form of a bakery, grocery shop, post office, hairdresser, restaurant, and several take away foods. A very short distance away to several neighbouring villages provides access to further restaurants and shops including a Carrefour hyper/supermarket. The beach is only 20 minutes away and here one can pursue and seek out all activities and shopping that come with the tourism industry, including bazaars, water-parks, endless restaurants and bars, etc.

In summary this house provides a very private place to chill out, an ideal base from were to walk the local mountains, or cycle the countryside - yet within a short drive to the beaches and a more touristy world depending on one's fancy. For those who like shopping and hunting for bargains Spain is just half an hour away, while contrasting interests of museums, wineries, historical towns and villages with their churches are all around.

Further details

Bed linen and towels are provided per stay and we try to make sure there are some chilled drinks in the fridge for you to immediately feel welcome and at home. A cleaning service is available on request, details can be provided, and local English speaking assistance is available in case of problems or for information. Smokers are requested to refrain from smoking inside the house.

Rental periods run from Sat 16:00 Hrs until following Sat 11:00 Hrs during July and August, periods outside this time are flexible and negotiable for clients to make use of bargain mid-week flights (Ryanair @ Girona)

Further details indoors

This house is well equipped with ample kitchenware as one would expect in a home; cooking is on gas in both the kitchen and the BBQ. The house is well ventilated, shutters can be closed and a number of fans are provided for when it gets very warm. There is a family bathroom and there are two separate toilets. This is a cared for and homely place with CDs and books on the shelf that you are welcome to use and "take one for leaving one".

Further details outdoors

Ample terrace space is provided with sun-loungers as well as garden furniture including a roller awning and parasol to cater for dining and living outside. The pool is essential for cooling down and also provides hours of fun for the kids; it is to the South side of the house where a large tree provides partial shade during the latter part of the day.

Two kids as well as two adult bicycles are available subject to agreement.

Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

This location boasts the best of all worlds where French and Spanish cultures merge in Catalan tradition. This is where the Pyrenees slope into the Albere mountains and then fall into the Mediterranean Sea, all in view of Mount Canigou which is snow capped most of the year.

The local Cote Vermeille has some superbly picturesque villages such as Collioure, and a mix of small well sheltered beaches between rocky outcrops as well as the very long and more touristy beach stretching from Argeles to Canet. These contrasts provide for plenty to do and see, the nearby Spanish town of Figueres (30 min) is fantastic for fashion shopping and the Dali museum, while equally the local French villages have their attractions (Ceret is where Pablo Picasso had his summer residence and where there is now a museum in his honour).

If you are prepared to drive a little further there are the options to get into more serious outdoor activities including river rafting and of course the famous Mount Canigou.

Villelongue-dels-Monts

Villelongue del Monts is one of a number of small villages at the foot of the Albere mountains, this village has a bakery, small grocery shop, a bar and two take-away foods. This is a truly Catalan village with a charming old village church and chime as well as a very old local orthodox priory.

The neighbouring village of Laroqua (4km) has two top class restaurants, one of which has a Michelin star. This is a very peaceful location ideally suited to those seeking to savour life at a slow pace for their time away with nature close by, yet within a 15 minute drive or cycle to the busy beach (with available water sports) or night life of Argeles sur Mer offering bazaars and endless restaurants at night.

Local wines (Domaine the Biscont) can be savoured and sampled in the winery in St. Genis-des-Fontaines just down the road. The nearest golf course is at St. Cyprien about half an hour's drive away, where there are also water parks; the nearest decent supermarket is between St. Genis and St. André. In essence everything is available within a short distance while back at the ranch its all about peace and tranquillity.

“Excellent holiday home in the sun!!!”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2016

Our second holiday in this amazing house! House very well equipped. Stunning views of the mountains with the Mediterranean in the distance. We all loved the swimming pool - our 3 children were in constantly in it. The terrace is the perfect place to sunbathe; there is seating arranged on 3 sides of the house so that you can sit in the sun all times of the day. Near to argeles sur mer, Carcassone and other stunning places. The owner is a pleasure to deal with! Thanks Jan for a wonderful holiday. We will definitely return next year :-)

Thank you so much for the compliment - delighted you enjoyed your stay!

“Beautiful location, really idyllic, ticked all the boxes…”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2012

Tullygarrow is really well set, the layout of the pool and garden offers everything you'd require; sunbathing, having a dip etc, you don't feel overlooked and it's very peaceful but not isolated. The garden surrounding the house means a large party can spread out and find solitude if required, or enjoy each others company on the terrace. The house offered a home-from-home vibe with various supplies provided including a well needed welcome snack and drink on our arrival. The BBQ was easy to use and we made of the most of this many evenings throughout our stay. We did hire a car which we felt we needed, it made getting there easy plus we were able to go to the local supermarkets rather than being bound to the village store. Also many of the local towns and villages are really worth a trip out to and of course the beach at Argeles sur Mer. However I'm sure you would be fine without a car as the village does have a small offering of shops and places to eat. All-in-all we felt it was a great holiday mainly due to our accommodation, we felt relaxed and refreshed and just a little sad we'd not booked a longer stay.

It is a great feeling for us when guests have enjoyed their stay!
