4 Cottages with 1,2,2,3 bedrooms, sleep 2 - 19, most southerly French valley

4 Beautiful Pyrénéan Cottages have been carefully converted, combining original features with modern comfort & are spotlessly clean. Each set in its own private garden with BBQ, separate entrance & off road parking. The thick stone walls make it cool in summer without air-conditioning. Le Paloumé is a traditional Catalan organic family farm dating back to the 7th. century. Situated in an unspoilt area of outstanding natural beauty and within walking distance of the Spanish border. Guests enjoy our 120 peaceful acres of meadows, woodlands, breathtaking scenery, pure clean air, fresh spring water & wonderful climate. The main pool 10m x 5m has a fabulous position with panoramic views & in full sun from dawn to dusk. It is fenced, gated & alarmed to French standards. The weekly 5 course dinner, created from our own organic produce and local wine, is a happy social occasion for all when we can share with guests our 15 years of experience and knowledge of the area and Catalan culture.

The magic of Le Paloume: The beauty & tranquillity of Le Paloumé makes it a very special place. After the sunset of their 1st. evening guests have visibly relaxed; worlds away from stress & cares.

On entering their cottage they see at once that their comfort & convenience has been fully thought out. The table is laid & their meal (if ordered) is ready on the stove.

In the morning a basket of fresh croissants & bread awaits them on their terrace – a perfect start to the first day of their holiday. There is masses to do in the area but when relaxing with a book beside the pool (or in front of a log fire) is all you want to do; choose from our extensive library: novels, thrillers, biography, factual, literature, children’s & still more novels…All our guests say that the weekly dinners are a high point; good food, good wine & good company on the candle lit terrace; our dark skies brilliant with stars. We hope you will have had an unforgettable holiday.

The cottage is gorgeous, the hospitality is great the views are beyond words, the FOOD IS AMAZING, and the animals are so SWEET! All in all a very memorable stay. Thanks!
Lynne, Mark, Louse & Ken English, Norwich. -

Everything you need & nothing you don’t need! And spotlessly clean.
Mandy Nettlemill & family. -

We came exhausted & left renewed….
Wonderful food & company at the “Cherry Time” dinner (banquet). Thank you all for your kindness, hospitality & warmth of welcome.
Adrian & Helen Thorp. -

Ideal spot for group visits, so much to share with friends. We shall return.
Gillian & Jack Penrose, Somerset. -

The main attraction was the animals (better than the peace, quiet & wonderful views etc.) They made it for the kids (8, 8, and 5). Thanks again for letting them feed & help generally. Hope you have as much fun, future visitors. We’ll be back.
Nicki, Steve, Philippa, Alex & Guy. -

Our 5th. year & as wonderful as ever.
Paula, John, Matt & James, Horsham.

Brilliant, excellent week high in the mountains, Jane and Felix are excellent hosts, and the communial meal was a highlight. Nearly lost the dogs on a walk, but thankfully they returned, would certainly consider returning. Spain is just down the road, and an hour from the beach in France, plenty of walks, an ideal get away from it all break

Le Paloumé, is 10 mins. drive from the large Catalan village of St. Laurent de Cerdans; with all facilities: shops, bars, restaurants, take always, banks, pharmacy, cinema, museum, tourist information, Saturday market and many outdoor pursuits. Steeped in Catalan culture, the fêtes are lively and great fun with music, dancing, communal meals, amazing cabarets, bals and discos. Near by towns: Amelie les Bains, market & thermal spa town; Céret, modern art gallery; there are daily markets & restaurants to suit every taste.

We are 1 Hour from Perpignan; Mediterranean beaches, Collioure (Matisse); Figueres (Dali museum); 1½ hours Gerona and 2hrs. Barcelona in Spain & Carcassone in France.

There is much local history to explore: 1000 year old castles, abbeys, churches, chateaux...

All this with the magnificent backdrop of Mont Canigou, snow capped for ½ the year.

Other Activities: climbing, tree adventure park, canyoning, dancing, bird watching, gym, sauna, massage & mushrooming.

Golf: Domain De Falgos, only 15 mins. drive from Le Paloumé, is a highly praised 18-hole course with panoramic views from Mount Canigou to the Mediterranean coast. It is par 70 and 5047m and was designed by Alain Dehaye

Amelie Les Bains, 9 hole.

Saint-Cyprien, an 18 hole and 9 hole courses with par 73 and length 6480m.

Torremirona Golf Club, 18 holes, par 72 and length 6245m.

Peralada Gold Club, 18 and a 9 hole, par 71 and length 6704m.

Ski: Skiing is an hour drive in Spain and also and hour and half in France. But in a good year for snow there is a ski run in Prats, only 20 min. drive away.
