Wine, Wi-Fi and the pool: What our visitors like most in 2010

2010 has turned out to be a good year. Apart from one damp week in July, the temperature has been at a steady 29-31 degrees. Visitors are happy too. We’ve seen even more entries in the guest book this year. Lots of people are emailing us direct from the villa thanks to the new Wi-Fi.

It might be down to the renovation work on the garden – we replaced the old crazy paving with some rather classy white, non-slip tiles. And we invested in a new outdoor shower and some smart rattan furniture. If you want the hotel look and feel, at half the cost, and far more private surroundings, this is the place.

Here are some choice comments from visitors so far this year with translations where necessary:

Dear Peter
Many thanks for the use of your wonderful villa, the waiting wine, milk, water, cherries and orange juice were very welcome. As for our stay, well, I’m sure you know it was splendid hot weather and a lovely pool – who can ask for more. We got to Argeles and Castelnou (what a beautuiful place). Eric and Francoise [concierge and wife] were very friendly and helpful, as were the local shop keepers.We look forward to a stay there again next year hopefully . Thank you, thank you
Steve and Louise Bell

We wanted to say that we have just spent an excellent week in your lovely house. We hope to be in touch again next year.
Thank you, the Constant and Allal families.

Hi Peter
Just thought I’d drop you a line to let you know what a fantastic time we had at the villa last week; it was a great place in a fantastic location and we all loved the pool.
I think we wished we had booked for two weeks; perhaps we’ll make it back another time – I certainly hope so.
Best regards
David Perks
