Make a holiday rental home or villa in Conflent, France your home away from home

Conflent, (which roughly corresponds to the region known as the Tet Valley), is a region of the Pyrenees-Orientales department of France. Set between the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the towering peaks of the Pyrenees, Conflent is a beautifully rural area adorned with spectacular geological features and breathtaking views.

Things to do on holiday in Conflent, France

Conflent is a mecca for walkers, hikers and mountain bikers. The undulating foothills of the Pyrenees make the ideal landscape for walking, especially the mythical Mount Canigou, which is supposed to look over the valley and protect it. There are a range of nature reserves here too, protecting some of the more fragile habitats and rarer species of plant and animal. After a hard day exploring the hills, there is nothing nicer than returning down the hill to the spa resorts of either Molitg les Bains or Vernet les Bains.

There is a strong equine heritage in Conflent, and riding holidays to Conflent are some of the most inspirational and taxing riding holidays to be found. Guided rides into the hills take you to picturesque, Romanesque churches and chapels high in the mountains, offering staggering views across France and the Mediterranean.

The geological features which adorn the landscape of Conflent have attracted climbers and pot holers to take self catering Conflent holiday accommodation for many years, and even the most experienced climbers can find extremely satisfying routes. Beginners are also in luck. There are a number of climbing, canyoning and pot holing schools to be found in the towns and villages in the Tet Valley.

Places to holiday in Conflent, France

Prades, the capital of Conflent, is usually the entry point for visitors to the region, as it is easily accessible by train from Perpignan. It is a very attractive town, with all the facilities needed to enjoy a holiday in a Conflent villa to the full. The annual music festival held in the Abbey of St-Michel-de-Cuxa is the highlight of the year in Prades.

A Conflent holiday rental in Vernet Les Bains is ideal for three reasons; its ideal position for hill walking below the peak of Mount Canigou, the vast geological museum and the great casino. Hill walkers and mountain climbers will be especially at home in Vernet Les Bains, as the village is not only perfectly positioned, but also provides all the services, shops and guides you could wish for.

Villefranche de Conflent is a real attraction for tourists, being a stunning fortified town high in the mountains. The famous Petit Train Jaune (little yellow train), is a great way to explore the mountains when you first arrive in a holiday rental in Conflent, but you need a bit of a head for heights! Estroher is possibly the most scenic village, high in the Pyrenees. The village has a charm driven by its medieval origins, yet there is still a distinct Mediterranean feel.
