“GOOD RENOVATED PROPERTY WITH GOOD SIZED POOL”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 for a stay in August 2012
1
person found this review helpful

The Le Couvent has been renovated to a high standard and the internal decor was a credit to the owners. The pool was a great size for swimming and the garden was also of a good size. The local contact who handled the keys was a lovely lady who was very helpful. Tuchan itself is quite remote but does have it's charm and if you want to get away from everything then this is for you. There is a bar which is handy for coffee and drinks plus restaurants around the area. The access road to the property is extremely narrow on entering plus the neighbour uses the road for parking but he always moved when asked. There is an outside summer kitchen but it is really more of a storage area so would recommend the house kitchen for preparing food. This is a high quality property in a middle of a village with a great pool.

“Perfect place to relax and recharge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

The house has been beautifully restored and has a fantastic french but modern feel. The swimming pool is huge and has all the accessories you need for you and your kids to have a good time. When we arrived the cupboards were well stocked to get us started.
The village of Tuchan is remote, 40 minutes from perpignan, but it has a very good grocery shop bakery and wine cave. The market takes place most days and the range of stalls vary. There is only a couple of restaurants but the surrounding villages have some very good eateries. The local wine and fresh vegetables are worth the trip.
Make sure to visit everything mentioned on the houses page it is an area of endless beauty. A car is a must.
Overall the holiday was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids under 7 pure relaxation.
Will be returning soon.

“The best holiday I have had, love every minute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011 for a stay in August 2010

I have visited this villa for the last 3 years in the summerand spent the last 4 years in Tuchan.

Relaxing place, completely takes you away from yourself and you do not want to leave.

The house itself is stunning, all amenities are available and it is beautifully presented throughout.
The outside space is gspacious and in truth you never have to leave the town as there is a small supermarket very close by and a pool bar and other restaurants in the town that can be used for evening entertainment if you want to use them.

A car is pretty essential if you want to drive into the main towns and beaches( approx an hour away) but there are some beautiful lakes which could be easily accessed by bike.

Absolutely stunning place I would like to live there and will go every year.
