Beautiful air conditioned family villa with large garden. Situated in the charming village of Sorède with great views of the Albères. The village is just 10 minutes from the Mediterranean coast and miles and miles of shimmering blue sea and golden sand.
The main house has two bedrooms, one double and one twin. The living area is open plan with a comfortable sitting room and dining area leading through patio doors to the sunny breakfast terrace. The well equipped kitchen has everything you could need to create gourmet dinners or a quick snack. The bathroom is separate from the WC.
There is also a separate studio apartment. This is accessed at back of the villa and houses the third bedroom, another shower room and WC.
The games room houses a full sized table tennis table and table football. It's a great place for older children to chill out, leaving you to enjoy the views in peace.
You can relax in the garden under the shady palms with a glass of wine and a good book while the children run around all day in safety.
We have made eating outside a pleasure, you can sit on the terrace under the shade of the trees or on the veranda. The large barbecue is ideal for preparing family sized meals.
It's a 5 minute walk to the centre of Sorède village where there are various shops and of course the essential Boulangerie. In the centre there are a number of pavement bars and restaurants to sit and have a coffee or spend an evening and sample the Catalan dishes. Markets are held in the village weekly and are a great place to buy fresh local produce.
The guests have sole use of the entire house and gardens. Free wifi in and around the house.

Sorède is perfectly placed to enjoy the region, close to the Mediterranean, only 20 minutes from Spain and the beautiful city of Perpignan.
You can sample the history and culture of the area, with many castles and churches to explore. The region has always been a source of inspiration for artists, writers and poets. Picasso, Matisse, Derain, Chagall and Dali set up their easels here and immortalized this corner of France in their works. The Modern art Museum in Ceret is well worth a visit.
It's a haven for walkers, hikers, cyclists, birdwatchers and lovers of nature. If you enjoy the sea, there are many activities available. Diving, snorkeling, wind surfing, kite surfing and boating are just a few of the ways of spending your days but if you just fancy a relaxing holiday, there are many quaint villages where you can sit at a pavement cafe and watch the world go by.
Whatever you choose to do Le Palmier in Sorède is ideally positioned.
Bonnes Vacances !!
We would advise getting a car, although there is a bus service available and buses in the area are only 1 euro per journey!
All we ask is that you treat the house with respect. We ask that if you smoke that you do it on the terrace. Please report anything that gets broken to us as soon as possible, we accept that there may be minor breakages and do not charge for the odd glass or plate.
We, Jonathan and Julie, have been living in France since 2001 and we are still very much in love with this stunningly beautiful region of France. We are married with 4 children and 4 grand children. Spare time is mostly taken up with renovating our derelict house. The apartment advertised in Ria-Sirach as "lovely apartment - large terrace" is the first part of the renovation to be finished and we are very proud of how successful it is.
Our favourite pass-times are eating, drinking, gardening, looking after our 4 chickens and "relaxing". If you get to know us you will realise that "relaxing" is meant to be a joke, it is something that we aspire to in the future.
We help other local holiday home owners to manage their houses, we have a selection of properties that we manage from a one bedroom apartment to 5 bedroomed villas. We have an amazing team of house-keepers, gardeners and pool maintenance people to look after you. If you need anything during your stay in any of the properties we have the expertise to help.
Feel free to contact us with your questions and if you need help in finding the house that is right for you.
