Take a trip to one of the nearby Mediterranean beaches where a variety of water sports are available including sailing, scuba diving and water skiing. Windsurfing on the nearby lagoons is extremely popular in this area. The nearest beach is at La Franqui or Leucate which is 10 mins drive from the villa.
Golfing at Saint Cyprien about 30 mins away. Carcassonne also.
How to get there
The villa is situated a short 10 minute drive from the A9 (Route de Mediterranean). Ryanair (from Stansted), FlyBe (from Birmingham and Southampton), Air France from Paris into Perpignan (15 mins away). Other routes: Carcassonne 40 mins (Ryanair). Montpellier 1 hr (Ryanair). Several airline routes to Toulouse including Easyjet, Flybe + Ryanair 1½ hour. Barcelona 2 hours drive. Girona 1 hour drive (Ryanair), Beziers 45 mins (Ryanair).
Fitou village is a 10 min walk. Leucate town is 10 mins by car – lots of cafes, restaurants and Carrefour supermarket etc. Perpignan and Narbonne are the nearest cities and are approx 25km away.
There is a supermarket in Fitou village and a bar, bakery (within a 15 min walk). There are several excellent restaurants in Fitou village and pizza take away. There is a Carrefour Compact at Leucate village (open 8am-8pm and up to 1pm on Sun). The major hypermarkets and a wide range of shopping can be found in Perpignan (20 mins drive ) or in Narbonne (25 mins drive). Leucate (10mins by car, on the coast) has a variety of small shops and cafes and bars.
The area is renowned for its long sandy beaches (stretching from Beziers in the north to Collioure a delightful fishing port and artistic centre near the Spanish border), vineyards and medieval castles. Carcassonne (a World Heritage Site), Narbonne, Perpignan and the coastal towns of Collioure and Port Vendres are all well worth a visit. Take a trip on the Petit Jaune Train (The Yellow Train) up into the Pyrenees and enjoy the spectacular views or if you are feeling energetic climb Mount Canigou, one of the highest peaks of the Pyrenees on the French/Spanish border.

Accessibility: The ground floor is all on one level where there are two bedrooms and bathroom. There is a very slight incline from the gate to the terrace but it is still suitable for a wheelchair. Tiled floors throughout the villa. People with mobility problems have stayed in this villa and they have all been extremely complementary about the accommodation. The ground floor bedrooms consist of 1 double and 1 twin bedroom. Bathroom with separate shower and bath. Access to the 2nd floor, however, would be difficult for a wheelchair bound person.
6 adults and so much room. 2 double bedrooms ,2 single bedrooms with 2 beds if needed each. Pool very clean and slightly warm so swam everyday. Everything you could want available in villa. beautifully clean. Need a car to get out of Fitou but walk into village for good restaurants. Visit Narbonne ,Beziers and Carcassonne. Much more to see but ran out of time.
Will go back!
This is a lovely villa and the owners have tried to provide everything you need for comfort and entertainment. There are games to play, DVDs to watch, the kitchen has all the pots and pans needed, there is a safe and lots more. We were a party of 6, using the 4 bedrooms (2 upstairs, 2 on the ground floor). There are two bathrooms, lounge, utility room and kitchen. There is a choice of three dining tables for eating, one inside near the kitchen and one on the deck with views of the lake. We mostly ate in the conservatory, which could be out of the sun, or in the evening, pull back the glass to feel like sitting outdoors. The pool is heated but still refreshing and nice that the water does not take your breath away when you go in it! Sitting by the pool, you can hear a little traffic noise and the occasional train but as these sounds are mostly drowned out by nature sounds, it is really peaceful. Any road noise fades into the background.
You do need a car or bikes for this villa. The nearby Spar shop does not stock that much, they had even run out of croissants when we tried. The supermarket in Leuchat, about 5 minutes by car, is much better stocked. One restaurant is in easy walking distance, the Moulin, and is nice. The other restaurants in the village are 25-30 minutes walk away, which was a bit far for the older members of the party in the heat. We all really loved this place and felt ‘at home’ in the villa. Happy to recommend. We managed to park two cars inside the gates. To get there, navigate by the Spar as the other road is hard to find. Turn at the spar and then turn right.
