A 3-storey renovated village house built in 1881 with a roof-terrace

We live in a traditional stone-built house close to the centre of a lively village in the valley of the River Agly. We are about 22kms north-west of Perpignan. The fully-fitted kitchen includes a dishwasher and the dining-room are on the ground floor. The bathroom and bedroom are on the first floor and the study/ sitting-room and terrace (suitable for al fresco dining) are on the top floor. There is also a second fridge and a washbasin on the top floor. An overhead fan is situated above the dining table and there is a heat pump to cool or warm the ground floor and the master bedroom. Two mountain bikes are available.

Three minutes walk to the village centre which has a brasserie, a bar, a pizzeria, a kebab place, three bakeries, two supermarkets, a flower shop and open-air markets on Mondays and Fridays. Estagel is ` en fete ` for three days from 29/08 to 01/09.
There is a bus service to Perpignan from Monday-Saturday all year and a tourist train for explorations of the Agly Valley in the summer. Ideal for walking and cycling holidays.

About the location

Perpignan is a 25-minute drive from our house. The city has a free music and street theatre festival called the ` Jeudis de Perpignan ` from mid-July to late August. Opportunities for walking abound in the Fenouillledes and Corbieres foothills of the Pyrennees. The Meditteranean beaches can be reached in about 45 minutes drive. Our nearest airport is at Perpignan. There are also flights from the UK to Beziers,
Carcassonne and Girona in Spain which are all about two hours drive away.
The Cathar castle of Queribus can be seen from the roof-terrace. It is a good place to join the Sentier de Cathars walking trail which links all the major Cathar fortifications.
