Newly Converted Self-Catering Holiday Home nr Perpignan
Le Juchoir (The Roost) is a small but surprisingly spacious house in the little hill village of Cassagnes, just 30 minutes from Perpignan. It is perfect for a couple with one or two children, with a good size bedroom and a shower room on the ground floor, and a lovely light living room / kitchen upstairs, with one entire wall of oak-framed windows, opening onto a terrace with a view of the hills.
We, the owners, remember always having a problem finding places to stay on our holidays. We were generally looking for somewhere for the two of us and our young daughter, but because of the economies of buying and renting property, the majority of places on the market sleep four, six, eight, or more. We always used to think that there must be many like us who prefer to stay in self-catering accommodation, but who are not holidaying with a large group. We hope that Le Juchoir represents an opportunity for such people. We found the site five years ago, through friends of ours who had moved to France, and live in Montalba Le Chateau, just 5 km away. It was a stone barn, built between houses in a quiet street on the edge of Cassagnes, a small but well-kept village where many people live who work in the nearby city of Perpignan, France's 30th city in population. The barn was more or less a roofless ruin, and it has taken those five years to completely rebuild it and convert it into a modern home.
The final stage in the process was furnishing the house, which we have done throughout with new, modern furniture, designed to make the most of the limited space. So you won't find a house full of charming but large, dark antique French furniture, or spare bits and pieces that were lying around waiting for a home. What you will find is a clean, bright, friendly house, with some interesting features, and a lot of style. Somewhere where you can really enjoy the clear light and breath the clean air of this unspoilt corner of France, while being a short drive away from one its most colourful and fashionable cities.
