Arriving at the apartment on the top of the hill in California Urbanisation area just beside the quiet wee village of Canyelles we were greeted warmly by Carmen, the property owner. The apartment is actually a small converted area underneath the main house so tall people beware - the roof is very low! I'm 6ft and was just able to stand up straight inside but had to stoop through a couple of doorways.
The apartment itself is fairly sparse and basic but it has most things you need, and Carmen is always on hand and more than happy to provide anything that you ask for. She also brought us fresh tomatoes from her garden on a regular basis.
What really makes the property though, is the pool and terrace area which is just stunning with an amazing view over the hills towards the Mediterranean. Despite the fact that Carmen is in the house above she is very careful not to intrude on your holiday unless asked, we spent 2 weeks there and didn't feel at all like the space was anything...
