10 of the best from 2010: A photo review of the past year

Even after six years, we never get tired of discovering new experiences at the villa, the village of Fourques, and the beautiful mountains and beaches of Roussillon.

These pictures tell a great story about all things that we (and our guests) discovered in 2010.

Sunrise in summer: The new pool, tiling and furniture were a big hit with visitors

This year we properly explored the Cathar castles. Queribus (pic) is our favourite

Forget wine tasting (for a bit anyway). How about a bit of olive oil tasting?

We're breakfast junkies: L'Antre Pot at Terrats is our favourite coffee and croissant cafe

Wine tasting? Turn out the gate, turn right, walk 50 yards: Dominic will pour you the best that Fourques has to offer

We still love Ceret. It's the most beautiful town in the region and it's just 30 minutes drive away


Afternoon tea? Perpignan serves some of the most colourful coffee in south-west France

Talking of colours, make sure you bring back some bright Catalan fabrics (and a bunny or two)

This is rugby country. Check out Perpignan or the Catalan Dragons at the nearby stadium

Barcelona: Spectacular, historic, tapas and rioja crazy and just an easy two hour drive away



  1. Love your pictures! They remind me of the colour and the wonderful holiday I had in Barcelona a few years ago 🙂

    • Thanks Paula, Glad you like them. We had a fabulous time when we stayed last year. I’ll be posting more Barcelona pics soon so look out for them.
