Review from a recent guest:

We had a brilliant time at Cottage Canigou thank you!

I’ve been to the area before but it reminded me how lovely that part of France is and how much I would go back.

Chateau Valmy vineyard was excellent by the way, we really enjoyed that, it’s a lovely spot over looking the coast!

Your hospitality was second to none and there was nothing we could really criticise or mention, it was all great!

We enjoyed it so much we are contemplating returning next year around the same time so I may be in touch to take advantage of your early offers.

Thanks again.

About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Paul Spink

Paul and Annette first visited Argeles sur Mer and Collioure in 1979 and eventually bought a property in Sorede in 1986. Our son, Luke was born in 1988 and we have been visiting this very special area of the Roussillon all these years. It is truly spectacular - renowned for the sun, the sea and the mountains. We have been hosting guests from all over the world for more than 30 years and welcome you to join us too.

Year property purchased 2005
Why this location? Our adjoining property, Roussillon Farmhouse (sleeps 10), has been in our family for the more than 30 years. So popular are our properties and the region we bought the 2 adjoining cottages - Cottage Des Alberes (sleeps 6) and Cottage Canigou (sleeps 6).

We have been visiting the Roussillon region since 1979 and of course we return year after year because it has everything – the sun, the sea and the mountains – together with a rich history, great culture, fantastic countryside, tasty food, very palatable wine and friendly Catalan hospitality. If you have not already been, then you won’t be disappointed.
Unique benefits of property The unique feature of our property, Cottage Canigou, is that it is quaint and quirky and has been renovated to a modern standard and is ‘home from home’.

Suitable for small families of up to 6 people with the benefit of a garden and shared pool (with the guests of our adjacent property, Cottage Canigou). You don't often get a village house with a pool and having the company of another family is often a nice way to spend your holiday.

Our properties are located in the most southerly and sunniest region of France with its own superb micro-climate. Great all-round year round - to escape from the UK weather.

You can walk (750m/5mins) to the village shop for fresh bread and croissants, to a bar and choice of 2 restaurants/takeaway for an enjoyable meal. The spectacular Mediterranean is just 15mins.
