About this property

Executive Villa with Amazing Views and Private Pool. This villa is in a coastal setting.

The house was finished in September 2007 and sits prominently above the village with uninterrupted sea, lake and mountain views with the illuminated chateau directly opposite adding nicely to a spectacular picture of France. Our plan was to create a modern, comfortable and stylish residence where family,friends & guests could enjoy a high quality,5* break at any time of the year.The result is a house which can easily accommodate 2 families of 4 - a double bedroom, a twin room and a bathroom on each floor and all with the benefit of air conditioning throughout. Whatever the size of your party, the property is ideal with all of it's home comforts and facilities. The kidney shaped swimming pool is ideal for all ages and the various terraces and the private upstairs balcony provide fantastic places from which to eat, drink and be merry. The village has 4 excellent quality restaurants & a bar.

Our deceptively spacious, individually designed, fully air conditioned villa with free wi-fi and UK tv has been built with luxury living in mind – the furnishings and fittings being to the highest standard throughout. It is our second home and we love home comforts! The large open plan lounge / kitchen / dining room provides the perfect setting for a large group to enjoy indoor entertainment and dining.

A number of outdoor terraces have been thoughtfully created to capitalise on outdoor living/dining and bbq meals. Large patio windows / doors provide wonderful views from the ground floor – whether sat in the comfort of the soft leather settees or sat at the large, modern glass dining table. The patio immediately outside the lounge/dining room has a granite fire-pit table and large comfortable chairs to soak up the views at any time of the day or night.

The kitchen has all mod-cons and is equipped to the highest standards to accommodate the requirements of the most discerning cook. There is also a double electric George Foreman grill and a Dolce Gusto coffee machine available for use. The furniture, fittings and facilities are above average and certainly not typical of most other rental properties in the area.

The villa is ideally located to enjoy the full benefits of this relatively unknown part of Southern France. Whether you are seeking peace and tranquillity around the pool, gastronomy, village, city, beach or mountain hiking or biking activities, it can all be fully satisfied from this lovely property above the wine village of Fitou, situated midway between the beautiful cities of Perpignan and Narbonne. It's elevated position above the historic wine village of Fitou provides unrestricted views of the Etang (salt water lake), the Mediterranean sea and the Pyrenees mountains.

During the evenings there is nothing nicer than a glass of your favourite tipple on the patio overlooking the illuminated kidney shaped private swimming pool and the lit up 10th Century chateau directly opposite. Every room has the benefit of reverse air units enabling effective air conditioning in the summer and heat during the cooler months.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Diane Carter

We are a well travelled couple who decided that a holiday home in France would be ideal for our family of two lads, their wives and our 6 grandkids - and of course Barney, our huge white standard poodle. We fell in love with Fitou and chose a plot of land that would accommodate an individually designed 4 bedroomed house with private swimming pool and most of all spectacular views. We could not have imagined how wonderful a nice large glass of Fitou wine would taste sat on our patio.

Year property purchased 2007
Why this location? We chose Fitou due to it's proximity to two lovely cities (Narbonne & Perpignan) and the border with Spain which is approximately 30 minutes drive away. The village is renowned for wine production and the nearest beach is ten minutes drive away from the villa. The views from the villa above the village are amazing - totally uninterrupted sea, lake and mountain views with an illuminated 10th century chateau directly opposite.
