Romantic gîtes in South of France
between sea and ski
the sunshine region of France!
Pyrénées-Orientales (marked in salmon), part of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, is the southernmost region on mainland France.
This area is bordered by the Pyrénées to the south and the Mediterranean Sea to the east.
The province is also known as French Catalonia as it was part of Spain until the 17th century.
The region counts approximately 300 sunny days a year.
Philosophy Maisons White Lily
+ Free WIFI in all houses.
+ Modern art meets antique furniture: light colours dominate within medieval walls
+ The view is the important thing: the houses offer wonderful views from the sunny south facing terraces (public garden in Pezilla de Conflent)
+ Northern European (Dutch) comfort in a southern European atmosphere
+ Your own ‘tourist board’ at home: with walking maps and tourist guides, guests are provided with all the instant information
+ Coming home in a home: everything you expect in a ‘home’ is there, like books, games (including ‘jeu de boules’ set), cleaning devises, shopping bags etc.
+ Sleeping well is important: the houses offer good beds with good quality mattresses, seasonal duvets, and both hard and soft pillows.
+ ‘Small’ house, ‘small’ price: the houses are designed for couples or a small family, which means that the price is also ‘small’
+ Centrally located: the villages are located close to shops, restaurants and all major attractions. So no driving up and down difficult mountain roads to get somewhere.
+ Non-smoking: all houses are non-smoking. We hope guests will respect our non-smoking environment.
