|"We spent two weeks holiday in the Les Marines apartment and were satisfied with everything. The apartment is equipped with all you need for a comfortable stay and it takes just 3 minutes to got to the beautiful and very clean beach. The area is calm and there is lots of green all round. We loved it to seat in the garden and barbecue by the palm. We can only recommend it. Thank you."
"The property is located in a great area. It's close to a beautiful beach. It very quiet and the neighbours are very friendly. There is also a water park within walking distance that went down very well with the children. The apartments itself is spotless and had everything you'd need to self cater. There is also a barbecue that came in very handy. The air conditioning is great works very fast and is simple to use. We were very happy with our stay and will definitely return. Thanks."
"Top location close to a clean beach, a lively city (Perpignan) and many interesting sites (castles, caves, fortresses, monasteries).
The small apartment has all for a comfortable holiday, including climate control. Most of all there is a perfect communication with the very friendly owner via internet or SMS.
For non french speaker it was really a pleasure to do it in English"
