The space

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.

We stayed in this lovely family villa in the peaceful village of Sorede for five nights. It is very well set up with everything you need - and everything worked! - and it was very spacious for our family of 2 adults and 2 children. We booked at very short notice and Julie was excellent to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa. Sorede is only a stone's throw from the beaches of Argeles, Le Racou and the lovely village of Collioure. And it is also close enough to the castles of Cathar country. Peyrepertuse and Queribus are certainly worthy of a visit!

Our family of six (2 young children, two parents, and two grandparents) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. Sorede is beautiful. The house is within walking distance to the village where you can buy your morning pastries. The house was clean and comfortable. It is very well equipped and even has beach toys and an umbrella to take to the seaside. We especially enjoyed the gas grill for cooking meals outside.

We spent a wonderful week in a splendid region. The house is excellently situated in the village (10 min. walking distance from the center) and very calm. The house is clean, roomy enough and well equipped. In the kitchen you can find everything that you need and there is a superb barbecue machine for the garden. At first we have had difficulties to find the house (unusual situation that the number 7 is situated in between the 9 and 11 at the end of a small “cul-de-sac”) which has number neither on the gate, nor on the house, and as it was previously announced nobody was waiting for us. Since we have never met personally Julie it is important that the small booklet with the descriptions was clear (only in English) but some updates would be useful. Unfortunately the internet did not work in spite of the efforts of Julia. We called her several times and she was always kind and cooperative. In spite of these minor problems we spent a great week in Julie’s house. Thanks

Response from Julie:
Thank you for the great review. We haven't had problems reported before with guests finding the house before but have now put a number on the gate. We now have the welcome instructions in French. The Orange box did work when you arrived but broke down, thank you for talking to Orange and getting the replacement box sent out, it was a shame it didn't arrive before you left.

Julie made everything just perfect for us - she is definitely "A" List host! Extremely friendly, courteous and so helpfull. She was all of the time a great host (we contacted her often and asked her lots of things!). The house in Sorède is a wonderfull and peacefull place and we loved sitting on the terrace watching the hills in the morning and evening. The village itself is sweet and offers a lot (some restaurants and bars - the people are very friendly). The house offferd all you would ask for - enough space and a kitchen you can really `work´ in! Julie´s place is a grat choice when visiting Southern France! Highly recommended!!!!

Maison très bien équipée, très propre et au calme. La décoration intérieure a été rafraichie et la salle de bains du haut refaite par rapport aux photos : agréable surprise. Juste un bémol sur l'entretien du jardin. Belle vue sur les Albères.

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)

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.
