Residence Port St Ange PyrÃ©nÃ©es Orientales, Languedoc Roussillon, France
Port Barcarès (pronounced bar-car-es) developed as a Catalan fishing village, between the Mediterranean and lagoon, approximately 12 miles north east of Perpignan in South West France. Today, the thriving fishing fleet shares the harbour with pleasure boats of all sizes, and the port also provides access to the shallow lagoon behind, which is a popular area for wind surfers.
The sandy beach (“A” class blue flag) extends for 8km and beyond the lagoon lie the Corbières hills to the west and the Pyrenees further south. The Spanish border is only a 40 minute drive, and the Principality of Andorra is about 2.5 hours by car.
The majority of visitors to Le Barcarès are French, German and Belgian, ranging from young families to retirees.
The apartment itself is on the second floor of a modern building with a garden fronting the beach and private parking on the roadside. There is a path, but no road, between the garden and beach. Within the grounds are 2 boules courts, racks for surf boards and bicycles, and a tap for washing sandy feet!
The property is adjacent to the marina and opposite the fishing port, where fresh fish can be bought most mornings.
Reached by stairs or lift from the lobby, the flat consists of an entrance hall (with wardrobe), bathroom and kitchen, partially divided from the main room, which has patio doors on to the balcony. This overlooks the swimming pool, with views to the beach, lighthouse, harbour and mountains in the distance. Sit in bed and watch the boats come and go!
All kitchen, dining and cleaning utensils are provided, plus pillows and blankets. Towels and bed linen are to be provided by tenants. For the beach, a windbreak and 2 chairs are provided.
There is also a swimming pool for the use of residents, open 10h00-13h00 and 16h00-20h00 daily. It is open between 15th June and 15th September approximately (it may occasionally be closed for essential cleaning). It is enclosed and entrance is by magnetic key.7
