"A wonderful haven for families in the south of France…"
What a great find for family holidays with kids of any age!
The owners Phil and Emma made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The apartment was well set out and had nice extra touches such as GPS for travelling around the local area, a monitor for the baby, handheld baggage scale to make sure we weren’t over out limit going home (!), first nights dinner waiting in the fridge after the unpacking was done, toys for the baby etc. We loved sitting on the balcony at the end of the day (or any time of day actually!!) soaking in the amazing view of the Pyrenees in one direction and the Mediterranean in the other.
We loved the fact there were only 4 apartments – it felt intimate and yet you have the benefit of access to all facilities and activities on offer as per the reviews above.
The twice weekly dinners provided by Phil and Emma on their roof terrace were great – a chance to get to know the other families that were staying there as well as having a delicious grown-up meal cooked for you while the kids are entertained by Alex or Sarah or one of the lovely daycare ladies. It was a ‘night out’ without leaving the resort!
The location was spot on – we had the fortune of staying for 2 weeks and during that time, got out and about and discovered the wonderful surrounding areas including a day trip to Spain. So much in offer for kids of all ages both at the resort and in the surrounding areas.
Emma’s love of Pilates is obvious and her wonderful passion for wanting to share the benefits whatever your level of ability is fantastic. A haven on holiday for the grown ups.
The drop in / out kids club is great as it gives you the flexibility without having to arrange your days around it. Emma & Phil’s kids are lovely and clearly enjoy meeting other kids and sharing their beautiful home and all that comes with it.
Our toddler definitely enjoyed the holiday and the resort – so much so she decided that going to sleep was not something she wanted to do (after happily doing so pretty much all of her young life to date!) and keeping us awake far past her bed time and waking during the night was the thing to do. Not what we were expecting on a holiday but there you go!
A great holiday – thanks Emma and Phil. Your lovely home is definitely a place we’d recommend to others as well as coming back again in the future.Read moreLess
"The best holiday we have had with the children…"
From start to finish we were made to feel welcome. The property was well furnished, beds very comfortable and fantastic showers. The kids club was perfect for our two boys and brilliant that they could dip in and out. Childrens play area great too. Pilates classes brilliant and encouraged me to look into classes in the UK.
The owners children were so friendly and played with ours. My oldest son is missing his buddy and keeps asking me when we are going back!
We are planning on going back next year.Read moreLess

"Amazing - great for the children…"
We had a fantastic holiday here. In fact, was a bit reluctant to review because of the potential for booking competition in the future - like to keep it all to myself!
Imagine is a really small exclusive complex of villas & apartments tucked away in the vineyards but is only a few minutes by car to the beach ...but with kids club, pilates sessions, massage, spa, heated pool (blissful) etc all on site. Because it's small, there's no having to reserve sunbeds at dawn.
The kids had a ball and didn't really want to go out (huge thank you to Alex who speaks fabulous English and kept our little monsters occupied), giving us some down time.
We got a lovely breakfast basket (fresh breads and croissants) every morning, delivered to the door generally devoured by the little ones before we got a morsel!!
I loved the Pilates classes and got lots of personal attention because there were only 2 of us. I think for the first time ever I actually went home feeling fitter than when I arrived! But there's no pressure to join in - the OHs generally sloped off for a coffee/glass of vino whilst we had our classes (and the kids dove into kids club).
Would definitely recommend and can't wait to go back.Read moreLess
