Laroque des Alberes, Pyrenees-Orientales, Occitanie
This stunning Catalan villa is set in the beautiful foothills of the Pyrenees and it has wonderful views down a wooded valley towards the Mediterranean. It is set in a National Park and has a private pool, 4 bedrooms and is perfect for a truly relaxing holiday.

The villa is the highest villa in Domaine des Alberes which is a private collection of villas that sits above the medieval village of Laroque des Alberes. The location means it is very quiet and very relaxing as it has no passing traffic at all. The elevation of the villa also means that in mid-summer it tends to be a little cooler than the villas down below on plain of Roussillon.

The villa is managed by a local agent who ensures that the property is prepared for any guests and can help guests enjoy their time in Languedoc. She has been there for many years and can provide advi...

A true southern French base, perfectly located in this quintessential Languedoc Mediterranean village. The villa is cosily designed, the area could not be more perfect and the property struck us as a nice 'home from home'. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. We were...More

About the neighbourhood
The nearest town is Laroque des Alberes which is now the most popular town in this area as it is simply the most beautiful. It has retained its medieval charm and has become a bit of a gastronomes paradise with many fine restaurants. In fact there is now even a Michelin starred restaurant which is pretty incredible for a small town like Laroque. Recently they have spent a lot of money restoring the old castle at the centre of the town and it just looks fabulous now. The residents of Laroque are very proud of their town and take a lot of care over it. Just outside Laroque there is also a Carrefour supermarket which is also very useful for buying those essential items.

Down on the coast (about 15 minutes away) there are two major towns that differ massively. The first is the very sophistica...

How to get there
Airport: Perpignan: 38.0 km
Railway: Perpignan: 33.0 km
Ferry: Calais: 1,165.0 km
There are several ways to get to the villa and it is very well served by budget airlines.

The closest airport is Perpignan which is around 40 minutes from the villa. This is serviced by Ryanair and Flybe
Secondly is Girona in Spain which is served by many airlines and about an hour and a half from the villa. This is very easy as there is a direct motorway from Girona to France and then it is only about 20minutes from the junction on the French side. I prefer this option as car hire is a little cheaper in Spain and many more airlines tend to fly to Girona so the flights tend tpo be a little cheaper

It is also possible to fly to Barcelona which is about 2 an half hours from the villa. Again quite easy as there is a direct motorway although Barcelona airport if the other side of Barcelona s...
