Vacation Rentals

Updated on Jul 3, 2020

In the heart of the old village with shops, restaurants and bars on the doorstep

Located in: Laroque-des-Albères
Our home is a village house on the square by the church in the old part of the Laroque des Alberes and is on 4 floors,
On the Ground Floor, there is a twin bedroom and shower room with WC as well as a a small study with a single bed,
On the first floor, there is a spacious living room with a balcony overlooking the square, sofa, comfortable chairs and a wood burner.
The 2nd floor has the master bedroom with a double bed, as well as a bathroom with shower and bath and a separate WC.
The top floor has a large kitchen which is fully equipped and a good size kitchen table which can seat 6 comfortably. The roof terrace is off the kitchen, with BBQ, outdoor table and chairs and views of both the Alberes mountains to the south and across the plain to the Sea.

Laroque des Alberes is a vibrant village sitting at the base of the Alberes mountains. Just 15 minutes from the beach and 20 from Spain. It can be reached easily from the motorway, airports and train station in either Argeles-sur-Mer or Perpignan.

For most of the year the village offers ten venues to eat and drink, cover all types of food styles; ther are restaurants, wine bars, traditional French cafe and tapas bars, as well as Pizza and Creperie. There is also a weekly market and small village shops for your daily needs, plus a large supermarket on the outskirts of the village.

The village is historically interesting with the Chateau in the centre originating from the 12th Century, unfortunately only the tower remains but as it is only takes a couple of minutes to walk from the house it is worth going up for the views, we frequently do this with a bottle of something fizzy and some friends.
There are also fabulous walks in the woods and mountains behind the house some easy and other some what more difficult such as the walk to the Pic Neulos which you can see from the house, it is the top of the mountain directly behind the house with the radio masts on top. For the less adventurous walking through the vines from village to village is a pleasant way to spend time.
Cycling is also very popular both in the mountains and on the cycle paths that weave across the area, there are also a number of cycling groups.

There are many places to visit in the area, cities such as Perpignan and Figueres both within 30 mins and Gerona just 45 mins away.

Closer to home there are the coastal French villages of Collioure, famous for its art and artists and its very busy Sunday Market. Port Vendres for its fish markets and restaurants. Banyules sur mer, which is known for its fortified wine usually served as an aperitif.

Argeles-sur-Mer is the closest coastal Village only 7km away, with three main areas of interest - all different in their own way. The village centre which has a thriving market on a Saturday and is a pleasant outing to pick up some provisions or a pick-nick and maybe sit in a bar and watch the world go by. You could then take your pick-nick to one of the beaches and enjoy the afternoon. The main beach (Argeles Plages) is really one long stretch of sand running from the north beach to the Argeles Port. The port is another fun area full of restaurants and bars and a good place to sit and watch the boats and the passing people.

Inland there is the village of Ceret another artists hub with its museum of modern art and large Saturday market which runs through the streets of this beautiful village famous for its cherries. If you wind further up the mountain you will find the villages of Amelie les Bains and further up Prats du Molo, both are worth visiting in their own right for the architecture.

Spain is just 20 minutes away by car, following the back road through the mountains to Le Pertus - although if you are planning to go shopping it is better to better to drive the extra 5 minutes and cross the border to La Jonquera where parking is easier and there is a diversity of shops although mostly for food and drink. Although in high season you might be better to join the motorway at Le Boulou for 1 junction.

There are also a number of beautiful Spanish resorts just along this coast of the Costa Brava, including l'Escala, Saint Marti and Roses. One of the most famous is Cadaques which was home to Salvador Dali and you can visit his house but need to book in advance. You can also go to the Dali Museum in Figures which is a pleasant town in its own right.

There are many more place to see in the area or you could just sit on the roof terrace with a glass of the local wine and enjoy the tranquillity of the village - as we have done for many years.
