Villa conforme à la description. Maison bien équipée et spacieuse. Nous avons passer un excellent séjour. La grande table à l’extérieur permet des moments très conviviaux! Villa vraiment adaptée aux grandes familles ou aux gros groupes d'amis. L'absence de voisinage offre une grande liberté pour les soirées :) Piscine éclairée et chauffée au top avec fond progressif jusqu'à 2m40. Il y a tout l’équipement nécessaire pour les loisirs. Hôte très sympathique et à l'écoute. Le petit bémol c'est l'accès au domaine (route montagnarde) mais on s'y fait :) Je recommande.
Villa matches description. The house is well equipped and spacious. We had an escellent stay. The big table outside allowed us to have some great moments together. The villa is really adapted to large families or big groups of friends. The absence of any neighbours allowed us to enjoy our evenings fully! :) The heated and illuminated pool was awesome getting progressively deeper to 2.4 metres. There is all the equipment you'd need to have fun. the host is very kind and attentive. The only small challenge was the mountain road leading to the property...but we got used to it :) I highly recomend.

Nothing to say except exceptional place, welcoming host and affordable price.
Very nice place
By Jonathan L on 23-Jul-2017
I stayed a week with a group of friends there and it was perfect. I was nicely suprised to see how big the place was and enjoyed the fact that it was isolated. There is also a ton of things that are already in the house: billiard, darts, basketball, swimming pool, ping pong table... It is a perfect place for some holidays with a good group of friends!
Perfect holidays in this property
By Sophyan B on 23-Jul-2017
This property is incredibly spacious and equipped. Everything we needed to have a nice stay with friends: amazing pool and garden. Everything you need to have some rest in contact with nature or party with family/friends around a Barbecue and a pool. Many thanks to the owner of this beautiful place.
Amazing place. Very quiet
By Keke L. on 23-Jul-2017
The house is as described. A lot of space and different rooms. Nice table outside for everybody to enjoy à good barbecue. The pool and all the games (snooker, ping pong, darts,...) were a lot of fun. The location is perfect. No neighbours to tell you you make too much noise. Within the mountain but also 40 min from the beach. Beautiful view from the villa too. And the owner was very kind. I'll definitely come back!

Ensoleillement parfait sur la piscine. Piscine chauffée très agréable même en cas de vent. Villa confortable et spacieuse pour plusieurs personnes sans se marcher dessus. Vue et environnement reposant dans un domaine et une région magnifique.
Génial de a à z !
By Bruno R. on 23-Jul-2017
C'est la troisième fois que nous louons une villa entre amis et c'est sans aucun doute les meilleures vacances que j'ai passé! Le cadre est idéal et je n'ai jamais vu un propriétaire aussi honnête et accueillant! Merci pour le séjour, c'était une énorme réussite!
A Birthday to remember!
By Simon K. on 24-Jul-2016
Our party of 12 people consisted of me,my husband (whose 60th birthday we were celebrating) our three grown up children and partners, my sister and her family. We were looking for somewhere where we could all be together, but have our own space too, where we could have fun, make a noise (and not upset any neighbour's), relax, entertain and enjoy ourselves. And this house delivered this perfectly! The house was well equipped with everything we needed,including the all important comfortable beds. It was very spacious and in extensive grounds.The pool was beautifully warm, and there were plenty of sun beds. My main concern when booking this holiday was " will anyone get bored?" but I really needn't have worried! There was so much to do here, that apart from a few trips to the supermarket, we never left the place! We swam, had diving competitions, played water volley ball, table tennis, basketball, archery, darts, and pool. The highlight of our days was having lovely long lunches and evening meals together ( I had no idea there were that many great chefs in my family!) at the huge outdoor table - a real focal point for us. Rob (the owner) was on hand if we needed him - very helpful and friendly. Would I recommend this place? Hell yes!
Peaceful Pyrenees retreat with a great pool
By Kerry H. on 25-Jun-2016
Perfect for an extended family holiday - plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for our needs with 2x kitchens and 2x lounges. We really enjoyed the large, heated pool with table tennis, pool table, basketball hoop, sound dock and other assorted games (including exercise machines) - which made the pool area our own private resort. When called on, Rob was there to help resolve any issue. The house is about 25 mins away from the beautiful medieval town of Ceret which is definitely worth a visit. There was an abundance of baby equipment for those with young children and an Xbox + lots of (english language) films on the hard drive for those a little bit older (adults, too). We loved the large tabel for al fresco family dining and my parents 50th anniversary.
Can't Wait to Returm
By Paula T. on 11-Jun-2016
We stayed at Domaine La Palmere in mid-June this year, what seems like a very long three weeks ago. It’s not easy writing a review about this fantastic place as deep down I would prefer to keep it a secret to guarantee some availability for our return. However out of respect for the owner Rob I feel compelled to complete this review. We have been holidaying in France for at least 20 years and have never quite loved a place as we do this. The property has everything on our tick list for a great holiday. It is an extremely spacious, private and secluded location yet only around 40 minutes’ drive to the coast, supermarkets, shops and some great bars. You can have as much fun as you like without fear of disturbing anyone and possibly more to the point no-one will disturb you. The pool is large and warm which allows for hours of fun and/or relaxation. There’s also a Darts Board, Pool table, Table Tennis, Basketball Hoop and some exercise machines in the annex next to the pool. And if you should want to stretch your legs a little there are numerous tracks in the forest and surrounding hills to wonder off on. We were part of a relatively small party however the house is spacious enough to accommodate large groups without feeling cramped or falling over each other, there will always be a quiet place to get away from the madding crowd and appreciate your surroundings. The layout of the house is such that two separate families could enjoy each other’s company when they wanted but could also have some privacy if needed. The owner Rob made you feel extremely welcome and was always on hand if you needed him. Not that we ever did as everything was just perfect.
Great group holiday!
By Anna M. on 20-Jun-2015
Our party consisted of six families, each with one child ranging from 5 months to 3 years of age. We chose the property as we hoped it would best meet everyone's different needs. We were not disappointed! The property is situated in a beautiful, secluded forest which felt extremely private and we could make as much noise as we wanted, day and night! Some of the outdoor space was a little uneven for the toddlers but the forest was a lovely shaded pottering ground. The pool area was securely fenced which put our mind at rest and brilliantly stocked with extensive sports activities, pool toys, umbrellas and even a fridge. The pool itself was large, really clean and warm. The pool house also doubled up as a good party venue at night so as not to wake the kids. The house was of a higher standard than many of the rental properties that we have previously stayed in. All the bedrooms were lovely with more than ample space for a cot, except the one downstairs bedroom which was a slight squeeze. The kitchens were extensively stocked with utensils and the large fridges served our party well. There are multiple bathrooms, the bedrooms are well spread across the property and the two living rooms and two kitchens meant there was always a place to get away from it all and we never felt on top of each other. The large outdoors table was the perfect place for dining in the evening and the gas bbq meant we could do most of the cooking outside so as not to wake the kids in the bedrooms which were next to the kitchen. We did not feel the need to leave the property much, which was quite lucky as the road from Ceret is pretty windy and steep. We did get used to it throughout the week and made a couple of trips there to the supermarket and for a shady lunch in the heat of the day. Ceret is a very charming town and the beach at Argeles also served as a great day trip less than 1 hours drive. There seemed to be lots of other stuff to do in the area although we didn't get round to it as we were having too much fun around the pool. The owner, Rob, was extremely friendly and helpful and took the time to show us around the property and help us settle in. Rob supplied us with enough baby equipment to start a small crèche, including numerous highchairs, playpens, a playmat and baby baths. All of these were of excellent quality, some were brand new, which is always comforting. A great property to suit a group and children of all ages. Would thoroughly recommend.
Relaxing half term break at a beautiful property
By Michael & Tracy S. on 22-May-2015
We spent a lovely relaxing week at Domaine La Palmere. The Villa is amazing set in secluded woodland surrounded by great views. The property itself was very spacious, very clean and very well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and there was spacious living accommodation with large TV and well stocked film collection. The bedrooms again are very spacious with clean, fresh bed linen and towels provided. There is good WIFI connection. There is an excellent spacious shaded outdoor eating and BBQ area which we took full advantage of. We could not have asked for more with plenty of activities around the pool area, with a well equipped games room which included darts, pool table and table tennis. The children were well entertained with the plentiful games both for in and around the large pool area. The owners obviously take a lot of pride and care over the maintenance of the property. Overall we spent a fantastic, relaxing half term break here and would certainly recommend to our friends and family. We could not have asked for more and even the weather is excellent!!
Domaine La Palmere
By Lee.M on 17-Aug-2014
Fantastic property set in a peaceful location 20 minutes outside the town of Ceret. Our party consisted of 8 adults and 5 children and we had a brilliant time. We found the owners to be exceptionally helpful, before, during and after our stay and would highly recommend this property to our families and friends. The house is superbly equipped with everything you could want, and finished to an extremely high standard. Highlights for us were the outdoor areas, plenty to do and enjoy, in particular the new outside dining area where we spent our evenings. This really is a fantastic property and the photos really do not do it justice, both in terms of how big and how well equipped and comfortable it is - we will definitely return one day

A very well maintained and extremely comfortable villa set in beautiful surroundings in a rural setting. The villa was exactly as described on the website and was well equipped for all our families needs. Fantastic pool and games area to suit all ages and all very child friendly. We would definitely recommend having a car for getting around to the shops and other attractions.

Pour les amateurs d'un endroit calme et reposant.
By Thierry. C on 20-Jul-2014
Excellent accueil et disponibilité des propriétaires, endroit conforme aux explications reçues. Nous étions 8 adultes et 6 enfants (qui ont largement profité de la piscine et de ses jeux annexes ). Malgré l'isolement nous disposions d'une connection wifi et de 2 coins télé avec jeux pour enfants si besoin. Bon équipement général, une mention pour l'agréable coin avec table extérieur bien agencé qui permet à tous de se retrouver autour de la table avec beaucoup d'espace et à l'abri du soleil.
Great stay in the south of France!
By Chris on 06-Jul-2014
A group of my family and friends spent 7 days at the house to celebrate my 30th birthday; we had a great time. The place was ideal for a large group (we were 14 people). Larger than expected swimming pool, excellent games facilities and a huge outside dining table all catering to our needs perfectly. The location was a little more remote than we had anticipated, but this was not a problem for us as we chilled out at the house for most of the stay. We had a great time and would definitely like to return soon.

A family friendly, sechluded gem
By Stas on 29-Jun-2014
Over the years, we have rented a number of properties in France and Domaine La Palmere definitely rates as one of the very best that we have been to. On arrival we found an impressive property, comfortable and spacious, extremely well equipped, but above all else very clean and welcoming. We went as a large group (two families complete with grandparents, babies, young children and teens) which can be stressful due to differing needs - Fortunately there is something for everyone here, be that fantastic places to see and visit or making the most of the facilities on offer. And, what facilities they are – A massive swimming pool and games room that kept the teens and younger ones engaged for hours. Good wifi. Two big TV’s with a selection of recent films (including kids films) and a PS3 which even the adults enjoyed on occasion. From a practical perspective we found the beds to be fantastically comfortable, the linen white and crisp and the towels clean and fresh. However, as a family what we especially appreciated was the huge outside dining table which was shaded from direct sunlight making lazy lunch time dining a real pleasure. It comfortably sat all 14 of us and on the occasion that our fun or dining carried on into the late evening, the fact that are no neighbours within earshot meant we did not have to worry about being too noisy. In short, Domaine La Palmere is a beautiful, spacious and tranquil place that can comfortably accommodate a large and diverse group. Robert (the owner) was always extremely helpful and informative throughout our stay and responded immediately to our communications. We shall be heading back and would not hesitate in highly recommending this property!
