Lovers of quality, imagine yourself at this luxurious cottage set in idyllic surroundings. Lunch at the village Auberge, laze by your private pool, enjoy cocktails under the gazebo, balmy evening barbecue before sinking into your sumptuous bed.

The Space

As you first approach the small, but active, village of Sournia from Perpignan, you will be struck by the magnificent mountain views. Mount Canigou, the sacred peak of the Catalans, is often snow capped until June and dominates the landscape of the area. If you are lucky enough to come in spring, the peach and cherry blossom in the foothills, frame this famous landmark beautifully.

Surrounded by ravishing landscapes, from wide beaches at the coast to the incredible backdrop of the mountains, with stunning rock formations nearby and vineyards and fruit orchards in the valley, Sans Souci offers you a wealth of places to explore.

A variety of things to do await you throughout the year – soak up the sun, meander at your leisure through small medieval towns, discover the secrets of the Prehistoric and Roman history, explore Cathar castles, ramble over the Fenouillèdes, with their rocky outcrops, and aromatic shrubs, or just simply…relax by the new pool.

The house offers 3 comfortable , beautifully redesigned double bedrooms, decorated in sympathetic neutral tones, with quality fittings and the extra touches that make this cottage special.

The open plan layout on the ground floor ensures that socialising is not a problem whether you are cooking in the well equipped kitchen area, chatting over the dining table, or relaxing with a glass of the local wine stretched out on one of the large sofas. On delightful summer evenings, you might well prefer to enjoy your wine outside in the gazebo listening to the sounds of the crickets in the warm evening air whilst taking in the lovely garden views.

As the nearest city, Perpignan, is often the hottest place on the French weather map in the summer months, we are sure that the new swimming pool will be appreciated, by adults and children alike. Sournia, standing at 640m above sea level, has the benefit of a refreshing breeze with average high temperatures for summer months of 29°C – 30°C. Just right! So sun lounging and dips in the pool are all catered for with stylish loungers and large, soft towels.

If, on the other hand, you have decided that an out of season break is just what you need, Sans Souci has a log burning stove, in addition to heating, which gives a lovely cosy feel throughout the house – just right after a day on the ski slopes of Font Romeu, one hour away, or on your return from a walking expedition or gentle stroll!

SO…….If you are looking for the French experience in a corner of France rich in Catalan identity, with all the opportunities for relaxation, sightseeing, cycling, hiking, walking and much, much more please come and visit, you will be made very welcome.

  • The apartment was nice and had a restaurant next door that proved very convenient. Parking was available across the street. The WIFI was so fast, I could easily stream video and keep up with my email and research away from home. Julie aimes to please. Just tell her what you need.

  • We loved our stay in Julie's apartment. It was well located, quiet, and well equipped. Highly recommended for a couple or small family. Loved the area; there was lots to do and see and lots of places you could go for a walk. Nice chat thanks Julie!

  • Pas de problème pour trouver la maison. Un petit souci a été très vite réglé.
    Nous avons apprécié le calme, l'espace et le coté pratique de la maison.
    La proximité du centre de village permet de faire une petite balade chaque jour.
    Bon lieu de départ pour desvirées en montagne ou au bord de la mer pour ceux qui veulent être en dehors des concentrations touristiques (ceci dit nous sommes venus en Mai, la saison débute juste)

  • Chez Charlotte is amazing! Located in a small village, there is plenty of things to visit in the area. Short distance from the coast and the mountains. Everything we need was provided in the house. It was very clean and had a beautiful garden. I will highly recommend this place.

  • Nosotros viajamos en semana santa dos parejas con dos niños de tres años. La casa muy agradable, con un balcón con vistas al canigó muy interessante. La casa está a tres niveles,a tener en cuenta por si se viaja con niños pequeñas. Las habitaciones son muy amplias y confortables.

About
Very happily married with 4 children and 4 grand children. Spare time is mostly taken up with renovating our derelict house (the apartment is the first part to be finished and we are very proud of how successful it is). Favourite pass-times, eating, drinking and relaxing. Looking forward to having people stay in our apartment, this has been our "baby" for the last 2 years and we hope you will love it as much as we do.
