Lovely Catalan villa with private pool home swap

Our lovely spacious villa will be a great place to spend your holiday - it has 4 bedrooms sleeping 8 people (2 doubles and 2 twin rooms), two downstairs and 2 up making it perfect for two families. A large living space, the dining room opens out on to the terrace with bbq where you can eat under the shade of the canopy and parasol or if its too windy use the conservatory which is perfect shelter whilst enjoying the sunshine. The swimming pool is perfect to cool off especially after a day at the beach and with its lighting you can swim into the evening. The two bedrooms on the top floor have balconies and fabulous views of the Alberes which are the foothills of the Pyrenees. They also have air conditioning. Downstairs the two rooms do not but the double room looks out onto the large garden which has lots of shade and fruit trees abundant. We encourage you to eat ripe fruit especially strawberries from our large patch!
If we are doing a straight swap at the same time, we ask you kindly to feed our two adorable cats who spend most of the day under a tree somewhere in the garden!
We did envisage this house as our main home so hope it reflects that in that you will have everything you need including tons of books, dvds and children's toys!!

About the location

The house is situated amongst other villas in a very calm area each with their own large garden so making neighbours rare to see!! There is a river at the bottom of our road which is great for a walk alongside. There is also a cycle track which goes from Argeles to Ceret - 20 kms or more! The beach of Argeles is just 15 mins away by car but it is worth going to one of the little coves a little further towards Collioure - sometimes you can find your own private cove if you are keen to climb down to it!! Collioure is well worth a visit - old fishing village which has lots of narrow streets filled with galleries and restaurants and the old fort - it attracts many visitors in the high season but you know why when you go there! Ceret is also worth visiting - especially on market day! Spain is just 15 mins drive away - great for shopping especially if the weather isn't great. The drive over through Perthus is stunning. There is also a local plan d'eau which is a small lake which is great for swimming, and other water activities for the children, as well as an acrobranche next door.
There are plenty of supermarkets close by - Le Boulou at 5 mins is the closest.
