One of the largest wine producing regions in the world, the region is associated with year round blue skies, sunshine, seaside and skiing, but also with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and palm trees.
This unique contemporary villa is nestled in the picturesque Catalan village Villelongue dels Monts just minutes from the Mediterranean beaches, 1h30 from the mountain ski resorts and less than 30 minutes from Perpignan, a lively town served by an excellent transport system providing easy access across the region and on throughout France and Spain.
The Cote Vermeille
This unspoilt coastline weaves alongside the Mediterranean Sea past the rocky coves and fishing ports of Collioure and Port Vendres to the wide sandy beaches of Argelès and Canet with its salt flats and nesting flamingos. There are a wide range of water sports and coastal activities for people of all ages to enjoy; paragliding, windsurfing and diving amongst others. This area is particularly beautiful with the vineyards terraced into the mountainside overlooking the sea.
There are miles of golden sandy beaches to be enjoyed within a short drive of the property, including Argelès-sur-Mer, Canet, Racou and the second largest leisure port in France at St Cyprien. The picturesque old fishing port of Collioure frequented by artists such as Matisse, Derain, Picasso and Charles Rennie Mackintosh is also less than 20 mins away. For art lovers there is the Musee d’Art Moderne in Ceret and the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres just over the border into Spain.
Although in a tranquil, country location, the villa is very easily accessible.
