Our house is located in the tranquil medieval village of Palalda, near the border between France and Spain. The village dates back to Roman times and is built on a hillside overlooking the valley of the Tech River and the oak forested slopes of the Pyrenees. In the morning and the evening the sky above our house is filled with swallows darting and diving, and the only sounds you will hear are their calls and the rushing of the river in the valley below. Palalda, like the rest of Roussillon, has a strong Catalan character to it, and you are just as likely to hear Catalan spoken in the street as French.
Our house is a recently restored old village house with all the charm of old stone walls and oak beamed ceilings combined with modern conveniences and comforts. There is a large shaded terrace and garden with a magnificent view over the river and the mountains. The open plan kitchen/dining room with its stainless steel appliances, central cooking island, gas stove and large oak dining table will inspire you to culinary experimentation with all of the wonderful local French ingredients available to you (for example: cherries from Ceret; apricots from Roussillon; the anchovies of Coullioure). A large living room enjoys 18 foot high ceilings and exposed stone walls. The large downstairs bedroom is quiet and cool in the heat of summer. The main floor bedroom has twin beds and a Juliet balcony with a view of the valley.

We love to travel and our home in Palalda makes a great base for trips around Europe, North Africa, etc. When in Canada we live in a floating home in Victoria Harbour and then we usually spend several winter months in our renovated neo-tropical heritage home in Mazatlan, Mexico.
