There are terraces with lighting (one covered), enjoying gorgeous lake and sea views, as well as a BBQ, garden bistro sets and sunbeds. The large open-plan living / dining room leads into a modern well-equipped kitchen including washing machine, dishwasher, oven with ceramic hob, and a microwave. 2 cots and a high chair are provided. We ask you to take your own bedding for the cots. Beautiful sandy beaches on the Mediterranean are within 10-15 mins drive on local roads. A 10-15 minute walk (perhaps a little longer uphill on the way back!) will take you into the village centre where you will find some excellent restaurants, numerous wine 'caves', with opportunities to meet the wine growers and sample before you buy. There is also a tabac/bar, boulangerie, PO and pizzeria. On the outskirts of the village there is a Spar shop, laundrette, doctors' surgery and routiere-style restaurants/snack bars. Fitou's Xth century chateau, complete with bar, provides panoramic views of the Corbières, the wild 'garigue' environment, the lake and the Mediterranean Sea, and is just a 15 minute stroll from the villa. Fitou is located within the Narbonne Regional Park and near a large salt-water lake, just a few kms from the Mediterranean Sea. In medieval times Fitou was the very last village in France before reaching Spain on the Mediterranean side (The border has changed a few times since). Just inland you will find 1000-year-old medieval Cathar castle sites perched high on rugged hilltops. These were built as defences against numerous invading forces and should be on your 'must-visit' itinerary. The old Spanish border fort of Salses (was Spanish, now French) is a 10-minute drive and the closest current border crossing point with Spain is around 35 minutes. Villa Saureto provides a perfect holiday base for couples and families - with beaches nearby in one direction, and mountains and Cathar castles in the other. If you are looking for a sunbathing, wind-surfing, sailing, walking or mountain-biking holiday, then Fitou provides the ideal location. Perhaps a cultural visit to study the region's history, or a steady stroll into the village for a few 'Fitou' wine tasting sessions is more your style. If so, you will be spoilt for choice. You also have the on-site pools (one heated early and late summer season), and nearby beaches, an African Safari park alongside the neighbouring village of Sigean, and water parks along the coast. Golf courses are located about 40 minutes along the coast near the Spanish border at St Cyprien and La Forêt.Perpignan. Narbonne, the Canal du Midi, Carcassonne, Collioure and Toulouse are all within easy reach of the villa. Day trips can also be made to Barcelona (1½ hrs drive each way, or take the train) and Andorra (3 hrs drive each way) . Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 14004*01More

The villa was very clean with a lovely light airy lounge. The air-conditioning worked well and was not noisy. The bathroom with bath was adequate and a separate shower room and second toilet were handy. Perfect for four adults and two children as one bedroom...More

Thank you for your very informative and helpful review. We are glad you managed to take advantage of the interesting walking routes where there are some beautiful panoramic views. No doubt this was necessary to work off the calories from the Fitou restaurants. We look...More

About the neighbourhood
With the Mediterranean beaches just a few kms (10-15 mins) from Fitou and the mountains just inland, the area surrounding the villa offers many contrasts. The village of Fitou itself is very old and built in a deep ravine which experiences dramatic floods from time to time. (The villa sits high above the village and is not affected). Fitou is a well-renowned Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) wine of the Corbières, and is the region's largest AOC, responsible for about half of the region's AOC wine production. There are more than a dozen Fitou 'caves' in the area and the heady atmosphere can be enjoyed particularly during the 'vendages' (wine harvests) in late summer/early autumn. Fitou usually hosts its wine festival over two days during the first week in August, or occasionall...
