Overview

Overview

In 1956 local chiropractor, Mr Boix and his dentist wife chose the site of an old vineyard with views over the picturesque medieval village of Arles sur Tech for the site to create a villa to live in and a separate suite of rooms for them to practice in. When we bought the house in 2003 we converted the practice rooms into extra living accommodation, installed a swimming pool and created extra terraces.

La Paloma now comprises the following accommodation:

* Villa
Family room with 1 double & 1 single bed and en-suite bathroom
Double room
Twin room
Family bathroom with shower & WC
Separate WC
Large kitchen/diner
Large lounge with two sofa beds
Large dinning room

* Apartment
Family room with 1 double & 1 single bed and vanity unit
Double room with vanity unit
Lounge diner with one sofa bed
Kitchen
Shower
Separate WC

With this combination the house can provide beds for twelve people with option to use the sofa beds for a further 6 people. Cots available on request.

Grounds & Pool

Built in an old vineyard, La Paloma is surrounded by wonderful grounds with extensive terracing and seating areas for outdoor dinning.

The house has a 9m x 4.5m swimming pool with Roman steps. There is an extensive sunbathing area with plenty of sun beds.

The house has games equipment for badminton and boules as well as a full size table tennis table.

The Area

La Paloma in on the edge of the tiny medieval village of Arles sur Tech, 30 miles inland from Perpignan in South West France.

Stayed 27 Jul 2013 with Large Group
A good villa for larger groups in an excellent location, The owner was easy to contact and very helpful. The views are stunning and there is a good variety of attractions and places to visit relatively close by. Local housekeeping and pool team helpful. On the negative side, fans in the bedrooms would have made us more comfortable at night and some people might find the steps to and from the house and pool difficult. The cleaning standard on arrival could have been better (several random items from previous guests had not been cleaned up) but it it not detract from the stay. The pool needed a lot of attention from the cleaner but it was always swiftly dealt with. Overall this villa has a lovely feel to it and was perfect for our family group of 12 people ages ranging from 13 to Young adults and 40+

We stayed 16 young people in this villa in mid-April. Although the weather was a little shaky, we had the time of our lives and this place was absolutely perfect. Except that we had a tendency to run a little short on hot water in the shower, everything about this villa exceed our expectations. The location was great, the view over the mountains was absolutely stunning and bedrooms, living-rooms and kitchen were all satisfying. I will not hesitate to rent the place again or recommend it to a friend. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay, Kenneth Pedersen

Stayed 21 Aug 2010
Ideally positioned with superb views. Spacious rooms for 11 of us including 4 babies. The whole place was very well equipped. exe cellent pool and surrounding patio area. Very good side terrace for alfresco meals. Two minor problems sorted very quickly by the maintenance man. La Paloma is within easy walking distance of local food shops and bars and restaurants. On the debit side the whole place seemed to need some tender loving care e.g.grubby shower curtains, window frames in need of a coat of paint, cobwebs mouldy corners etc. However, overall our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Paloma.
Owner reply:

Hi Michael

Thanks for your positive comments about La Paloma.

The shower curtain has been replaced and the other items you mentioned have been rectified as part of our end of season clean up.

We have set up a quality control system to make sure that the condition of La Paloma at the end of the season is up to the same high standards enjoyed by guests at the beginning.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay at La Paloma

Kind regards

The property is in a stunning position overlooking the village with views of the foothills of the Pyrenees. The property is very spacious, decor and furniture is oldish but perfectly servicable with ample cooking and dining utensils for 12 people. Lovely terraces for dining on and the swimming pool terrace is great for relaxing or enjoying the pool. Couple of minor issues were attended to directly by the owner who is extremely helpful and attentive to ensuring everything is okay with your stay. This is not a glitzy Spanish villa but a traditional French house where you can relax with children not worrying that something expensive ia about to be broken an ideal base for a family holiday in the beautiful surroundings of the Pyrenees.

About the owner
We live near Epsom in Surrey and run a small training company working with teachers and their pupils in the UK and overseas. We have always loved France and decide to buy our property there in 2004. We spend as much time as we can there during the year and let the house out during the summer. Our children and grandchildren often come with us which adds to the joy of being there.
