“Very quaint French house within easy reach of everywher”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What a lovely quaint house!! From the outside, it looked like and old cottage and we were very pleasantly surprised as soon as we stepped inside. Without taking away from the old exterior, the owner has renovated the house exceptionally and used every nook and cranny to the best of it's advantage.
The house is on 4 floors and, if you have any walking difficulties or a pram to negotiate, the stairs would be tricky. Our kids are 12, 8 and 6 and we all loved it. The TV room and the supplied DVDs was very helpful in relaxing in the evenings before bedtime. The upstairs terrace made a glass of wine most enjoyable after the kids bedtime.
The area around Elne is easily visited from the house. Our day trips weren't spent in the car - nowhere was more than 25 mins away. The day trip to Perpignan was a great success and the visit to the butterfly farm turned out very well. On pulling into the the car-park, it didn't look great but the freedom inside with the butterflies landing on our arms and fluttering about was really magical. The kids loved it. And happy kids make for happy parents!
Would I go back?? In a heartbeat. I loved the house. I loved how easy everything was to find. I loved the nearby bakery.
The only drawback to the whole holiday was that Elne itself has very little in the way of restaurants or nightlife. It's quaint and old and beautiful. Set in a residential area, we had good nights sleeps and with the kids, this was ideal. I didn't check out what happens after dark - I'm sure there must be some local hostileries or bars .. maybe as we had the kids, we didn't look hard enough!!
The owner was always just an email away and I have no doubt, she would react with speed to any query. She has a place to be proud of and I'd recommend it to anyone .. unless they'd like the same rental time i'd want myself ;)

Lovely property in a beautiful location. House has everything you need and the owner is quick to respond to any questions you may have. Elne itself is a lovely place but it is also ideal as a base for exploring the region.

We travelled with our child who is 5 and my mother who has difficulty walking. I was really nervous about our child because of the stairs so wouldn't recommend for families with younger children or to anyone who has difficulty using stairs. The owner did tell us there were 4 floors so this was an oversight on our behalf.

Overall we were very happy with the property and with the correspondence we had with the owner. Rooftop terrace has beautiful views :)
