Casa Oreneta has been beautifully renovated to a high standard. Situated in a tranquil picturesque village, private terrace and garden with spectacular panoramic mountain views. Cosy, log fire, ideal for summer and winter. Easy parking. Sleeps 5.

The space

This comfortable village house has everything you could possibly need for a fantastic holiday in France.

The spacious open plan living area is ideal for holiday life. The recently installed modern kitchen has good quality integrated appliances making cooking a joy. The kitchen has a large slow cooker which cooks beautifully and in large quantities.

Leading off from the kitchen is a newly created sunny terrace so eating outside couldn't be easier.

The dining area has a large table and comfortable chairs.

In the sitting area there is a cosy log burning fire ideal for those chilly winter evenings it also has double glazing to keep the cold out in winter and the cool in during the summer. This area has been sympathetically renovated retaining all the charm that exposed stone walls and old beams can bring.

With regard to entertainment there is a TV (French Channels) on which you can play your own DVDs, there are a few board games and lots of books.

The ground floor has a large utility room which houses the washing machine and a second fridge freezer, essential for keeping drinks cool on the long summer days. Also on this level is a single bedroom and a WC.

The first floor has 2 comfortable double bedrooms and a single bedroom (one of the doubles is accessed through the single room). There is also a bathroom with, bath/shower and WC.

As this house is built on the side of a hill the top floor is the living space but also gives access to the garden (wild grassy area) and terrace.

Further details outdoors

The house has it's own parking place at the side of the house. The large garden rises up the hillside to the rear of the house and has fantastic panoramic views on the surrounding countryside and mount Canigou. Rudyard Kipling said of Mount Canigou that it was "a magician among mountains". There are large patio doors leading to the garden (wild grassy area) and also to the terrace bringing the outside in.

The new terrace is equipped with a wooden table and chairs, a barbecue and parasol.

La maison sur 3 niveaux et très agréable même par grosse chaleur. Elle est joliment agencée et bien située à distance raisonnable de nombreux points de visite important. Un point d'attention est l'utilisation nécessaire de la voiture avec des conditions de parking un peu compliquées dans le village.

La casa es una antigua casa de pueblo en un pueblecito precioso del prepirineo francés. Tiene unas vistas preciosas. Tiene tres plantas y es amplia. La última planta, donde está ubicada el salón comedor cocina está reformada con mucho gusto. El resto de la casa no está tan reformado, especialmente la primera planta. Desde Rodes se pueden visitar muchos sitios interesantes. La ubicación es genial.

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cette maison mais nous avons dû nous accommoder de beaucoup de choses qui n'étaient pas signalé ou qui ne nous ont pas été communiqué en amont : - Il y a une servitude de passage entre la maison et le jardin. Elle n'a pas été utilisée par les voisins mais elle existe. - la chambre du bas est inutilisable car humide et communique sans séparation avec une ancienne cuisine dans laquelle fonctionne un frigo-congélateur très bruyant. On ne peut donc pas considérer qu'il y a 4 chambres. - le jardin était à peine utilisable car en pente et avec une pelouse inexistante (du foin) - les fenêtres du dernier étage ne sont pas sécurisées pour les enfants (pas de garde corps) - beaucoup d'appareils (lampes, câble TV, electro-menager...) sont d'origine anglaise avec des prises inutilisables (uniquement 2 adaptateurs) - la cuisine, même neuve, est peu fonctionnelle voire mal conçue (2 placards n'ouvrent pas entièrement- le frigo est pour 2 personnes - il faut souvent descendre 2 étages pour aller dans le grand frigo du rdc) - la propreté était très superficielle à l'entrée dans les lieux La communication avec Julie a été sympathique et efficace mais il faut savoir qu'il s'agit d'une intermédiaire et qu'on ne communique pas avec les propriétaires en direct. Tout ces points nous laisse une appréciation très mitigée de cette location dont le rapport qualité-prix n'est pas bon. Heureusement que le village est sympathique (même s'il manque cruellement d'animation !) et que la région est belle. La vue sur le Canigou est splendide depuis la terrasse mais cela ne suffit pas... Dommage.

Superbe maison propre et fonctionnelle. A l'arrivée les lits sont fait, des serviettes sont posées sur chaque lit et une bouteille de vin du coin vous attend sur la table. Les instructions pour se rendre a la maison sont claires, les clés sont dans un coffre a code ce qui permet d'arriver a l'heure souhaitée et un carnet plein de bonne adresse est a disposition. Recommandée chaudement !!

Julie User Profile

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.
