The Space

Formerly part of the château, this character stone property has been meticulously restored to the highest standard & now affords elegant, well equipped accommodation for up to 5 people.

The open plan kitchen/sitting room is triple aspect & opens onto a small courtyard at the front - ideal for a morning coffee. There (email hidden) & also a comfortable seating area.

A winding staircase leads you to the first double bedroom which has en suite facilities & two sets of French doors opening onto front facing Juliet balconies. Continuing up there is another front facing double bedroom, a small side facing single & a second shower room with WC. (The bedroom layout affords a high degree of privacy & is ideal for a two couples sharing or a family.)

On the next floor is the crowning glory- a fabulous decked roof terrace with summer kitchen, BBQ and the most spectacular views. This is the spot for al fresco eating at its very best & as the sun goes down, the perfect place to end the day.

Situated in a prominent position in an extremely well maintained 'Village Fleurie', this beautiful stone gate house offers outstanding views of the olive groves & orchards of the Tet Valley. Joch is a medieval hill village through which mountain streams run alongside it's flower filled, cobbled streets.

  • 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.

    Extraordinaire vue sur le village et le Canigou.
    Accès facile, même en voiture.

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.
