Very peacefully situated at the edge of a charming mountain village halfway between the high Pyrenees and the sea, the location enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Both the house and private garden have spectacular mountain views. The house is built into the rock and stays warm in winter and cool in summer. It is a tranquil place ideally located for walking, thermal pools and mountain biking and 30 mins drive approx from ski resorts like Font Romeu. The beautiful Carança Gorge is 12 mins drive away.

This is a nice and cosy home with beautiful views in a tiny village. The amenities are fairly basic and there is no shop in close proximity. The 3km winding road can be a bit hair raising for city slickers like my family so it's worth making sure you have groceries with you when …

Response from Jon:
Thanks for your response, glad you had a great time. That's very strange: I did respond to your messages via text message to the airbnb website as soon as i got them, and my message appeared to have been sent - I'm really sorry the message didn't get through! I'll follow this up with airbnb. I'm embarrassed as we pride ourselves on quick and good communication with guests.

An extraordinary place, perfectly described and beautifully outfitted. Great for our early winter stay: sunny for our walks that we could take right from the house, cozy for dinners and quiet evenings. Be sure to visit Charcuterie Chez Alex in Olette for all things delicious & h…

Jon's house was perfect, located in a small village with a lot of possibilities for hiking nearby and also not too far from Mount Canigou, the holy mountain of the Catalan People. The house was autentich with the back wall consisting of solid Stone. The small garden was perfect f…
