La Rondelle is one of two cottages adjacent to the owners' renovated farmhouse, situated down a track off a minor road near a remote hilltop village. Don't book here if you want to be minutes away from supermarkets (although there is a useful Alimentation in the nearby village of Oms), bars, restaurants and general touristy liveliness. However, if having bats whirring close by at dusk; great views across to the mountaintops that signify the French/Spanish border; spacious, comfortable living spaces; a well-equipped kitchen; a pool you can swim properly in; and access to a hidden part of French Catalonia - then La Rondelle is the perfect location. We were here at the height of late summer, so found it hard to drag ourselves away from the views and the pool, but the walking in the nearby mountains is good; there are great beaches at Argeles and Collioure (good fish restaurants); and the little town of Ceret (20 mins away down a twisty mountain road) is a gem with a marvellous Art gallery and a genuinely rural Saturday market. The owners were accessible but discreet; the property clean and thoughtfully equipped; and the resident dog Roxy a friendly but well-behaved presence.
Maison trop petite pour 6 personnes. Une seule "vraie" chambre, les autres ne sont que la mezzanine et une petite pièce en sous sol. Peux convenir pour une famille mais surement pas pour des couples voyageant ensemble. Il aurait été juste et honnête de le préciser dans l'annonce. Sinon belle localisation dans les collines, endroit reculé et calme.
