At a heart of a closed and landscaped garden of 3000 m2, with a fantastic view on the Albères massif and Canigou mountains, this beautiful villa designed by an architect benefits from a magnificent luminosity thanks to its orientation facing south.
The park, leaned in the massif of Les Albères benefits from a magnificent view, inviting to rest. The mediterranean tree species in it (evergreen oaks, palm and olive trees, mimosas...) strengthen the quiet of places. The large (9 by 4 m) and private swimming pool, shared with the owners, will keep you cool during the summer.

The village,accessible by foot, is often called the balcony of Catalonia and Vermillion coast because of its outstanding position on the spur of the Albères mountain range, far away from traffic and very near beaches (Collioure or Argelès-sur-Mer) and Spain (Cadaquès etc.).
