    Laroque des Alberes
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    If you are looking for a spacious house full of character, comfortable, and with all modern conveniences, in the heart of a pretty (but not kitchy pretty!) village, close to both the mountains and the sea, you will certainly enjoy staying at Les Pleiades..

    Our house is one of the very few in the area where 1 or 2 guests are just as welcome as 3 or 4. We simply set the rates according to the number of guests. We have found that people who travel alone, or with only one other person often have trouble finding a gite that will accept tiny groups, and have no choice but to stay in B & Bs or hôtels.

A very comfy house in a welcoming village, at the heart of an area one could spend a lifetime discovering. The house is nice to live in, well equipped, and perfectly located in the historic part of the village, with friendly and helpful neighbourgs. All walking hikes start at your doorstep (go to Spain by foot, just by climbing the... more

Like other guests we had before, you were also there to work and write, and we certainly hope that the local wines did their best to facilitate your intellectual... more

We spent three weeks last September at Les Pléiades and really enjoyed our stay. The house is well located, well equipped (wi-fi connection works very well), quiet, comfortable and very charming as is the village of Laroque des Albères and its inhabitants. Marie-Luce has left all kinds of brochures in the house which are very helpful to plan outings. The... more

Management response:

The whole Roussillon area is worth exploring at length, and you obviously had fun wandering around the hills and villages. We are always planning improvements to the house, and your feedback goes a long way towards... more

Les Pleiades is an amazing house in a lovely village in a beautiful area. It is extremely well equipped with all the comforts and essentials of home - down to the picnic plates and the upstairs drying room! The village shops and restaurants are good quality and so convenient . Marie-Luce's comments in the brochures provided (both in French and... more

Management response:

Thank you very much! We too enjoy spending time in Les Pléiades and Laroque, so we do try to keep the house as well-equipped and comfortable for guests as if we were staying there ourselves. We have found that having contented guests not only brings in more guests, but simply making people happy for a little while is also a... more
