Great location if you want don't like it too touristy.
We really enjoyed our 2 weeks in this spacious, well equiped, quirky village house. All our meals where eaten on the terrace with it's wonderful far reaching views. So much to see and do - charming towns and villages to explore and a beautiful beach at Argeles-sur-Mer.
Kevin was very helpful.
Beautiful House in beautiful setting
This is a very nice house in a lovely mountain village near the coast.
It sits in the old heart of the mountain village of Montesquieu Des Alberes and retains it's old charm whilst provide modern facilities inside.
The service we received from the owner was excellent, the property is well maintained, stocked and clean and the descriptions given are accurate.
It's large terrace with superb views allows you to relax and eat outdoors, or stay in the cool of the house when it is too hot out.
The beaches of the Pyrenees Orientale's coast are 15 minutes away by car, as well as many other places of interest if you so wish.
There are plenty of walks in the surrounding hills right on your doorstep, as well as being a popular location for cyclists.
The lake at St. Jean pla de Corts, 15 minutes away, is great for families, with high ropes courses, pedalos, kayaks and swimming etc.
Barcelona is within easy reach and if flying, worth considering as an arrival destination.
Très bon séjour à Montesquieu.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine à Montesquieu dans la maison de Kevin. Nous étions une famille de quatre personnes, deux adultes et deux adolescents. La maison est très agréable, très spacieuse, propre et bien équipée.
Kevin répond très rapidement à toutes nos questions et est de bons conseils. C'est quelqu'un de sérieux et tout était conforme à ce qu'il nous avait indiqué.
C'est une très bonne adresse, à conseiller.
séjour juillet 2015
Grande et ancienne maison, bien aménagée et confortable. idéalement située pour une découverte de la région. Kevin répond rapidement aux mails et est bien organisé. à recommander sans problème!
A good choice !
La maison est très agréable, spatieuse, avec une belle terrasse et une vue superbe.
Elle est particulièrement bien placée: dans un petit village tranquille, à 20 mn du Racou pour la plage, et proche de Cérès pour ceux qui préfèrent les ballades ou randos...
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
Rien ne manquait dans la maison.
Kevin est très sérieux et très bien organisé !
The beach at Le Racou is a hidden gem!
Fantastic large house with beautiful views
This house in Montesquieu des Alberes was beautiful and absolutely perfect for us. We loved the spacious size of it and the facilities it had.
We found it extremely well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. It was clean and well maintained. The bedrooms were large and spacious with magnificent views from the windows. It has a huge safe walled balcony area which is great for outside dining, BBQ and soaking up the sun.
Parking was a little tricky as the roads near the house were quite narrow with limited parking spaces available. Most of the time you needed to park a little further back which didn't cause much of a problem or reflect on the location of the house in any way.
The village was beautiful and friendly. A small circus came to the village which was a great family run show. On a Thursday evening a pizza van comes to the village and makes fantastic home made pizza to order. There is no shop in the village but there is one in the next village and a large supermarket a short drive away.
The house is very well situated for exploring the surrounding area with some fabulous large sandy beaches nearby and beautiful coastal roads. Our favourite places to visit were:
Castelnou - a beautiful mountain village.
Collioure & Port Vendres - two very attractive harbours.
Cucugnan - a beautiful mountain fortress village.
Villefranche & Mont Louis - the yellow train is a must.
Tautavel - prehistoric site and museum.
Plan D'Eau - two beautiful large lakes with water ski and many activities for children and adults.
Barcelona - this is a must. It was only a 2 hour drive away and there was a lot to see however it can be quite expensive. The gaudi architecture at Park Guell and Sagrada Familia were fantastic.
The whole area was a beautiful region of France with so much to see and not enough time to see it in one go.
The owner Kevin Holloway provided excellent customer service and was extremely helpful and responsive with any questions we asked.
The whole experience from the initial first contact through to the booking of the house, the holiday itself and the aftercare service on our return was a pleasant one and just what we required from our well earned holiday.
A big thank you to the owner Kevin for making our stay such a pleasant and enjoyable one and we hope to return to the area in the near future and stay at this property again.
We would highly recommend this property to our friends and family.
