In a beautiful, unspoilt area of Southern France, this detached house is located on the outskirts of the village of Belcaire in the Eastern Pyrenees foothills. Only a 5-minute stroll away there is a lake to swim in which has lifeguards in July and August, a children’s play area and well-maintained tennis courts.
It is a perfect walking location with amazing views and many varieties of wild flowers and birds. There are walks to suit all abilities from local strolls to challenging mountain walks.
