We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Saureto, helped by the very welcome ‘welcome pack’ on arrival with some essentials and a bottle of local wine.
The villa was very clean, tidy and spacious with everything you could need on holiday - a real home from home - with lovely views out to the Med from the verandas and two excellent pools which the kids couldn’t stay out of! Even in the peak of August the pools were not overly busy.
Fitou itself is small but charming with a couple of very good restaurants and excellent wine Caves, with some worthwhile local tours of local wine makers premises - Cap Leucate (free tickets from the welcome pack!) and Terra Vinea, etc. Be careful with how much wine you ‘taste’ however if driving!
The beach at Leucate was excellent, long and super clean, with views out to the Pyrenees (Although we didn’t, Barcelona can be reached by train from Leucate) and more great restaurants in the town – ‘La Bodega El Flamingo’ being a firm favourite (definitely need to book however)
We used the villa as a convenient base for day trips to Carcassonne, Toulouse, Narbonne, Perpignan and Collioure which were brilliant for culture, food, shopping and the typical French summer atmosphere. There are plenty of varied things to see and do in the region and the villa was well suited to relaxing and re-charging. I would highly recommend and would love to return again in the future.
We so enjoyed our stay of three nights at La Forge. The house is as beautiful as the photos, and it accommodated our family of four with rooms to spare. The kids enjoyed the gaming consoles, and outdoor activities.
We came to Monseret during April, and things were very quiet, as well as rainy and cold. It is usually sunny and warmish so we didn't have good timing for weather. I think we would plan to come in early to mid-May next time to find the region more vibrant, more restaurants open for the season, and the weather warmer.
Cathérine and Sébastien's parents met us at the house when we arrived and gave us a tour. They were available and in contact with us during our stay in case we needed anything - very friendly and welcoming. Thank you for opening up your charming home to travellers who want to get a taste for small town France and the castle country.
