Things to do on holiday in Aspres, France

Aspres is an outdoor activity hot spot. The hangliding and paragliding from the Aspres Range has become very popular with those who like to take to the skies, and the stunning mountain trails which cross the region are hugely celebrated by the walking and hiking community. Horse riding holidays to Aspres have become increasingly popular in recent years, as stables invest in their facilities and take advantage of the awe-inspiring scenery which they are surround by. In summer, the numerous vineyards of the region are happily open to visitors, and both wine tasting holidays and vineyard tours thrive in the area.

The mountain streams flowing towards the Mediterranean are magnets for fishermen. Teeming with fish, Aspres cottages are often filled with those hoping to walk into the hills with a fishing rod and catch super. Permits to fish are required, but are easily obtained.

The house is beautiful and the surrounding landscape was amazing to walk, cycle and drive in. I would highly recommend the house to anyone wanting to stay in the area. We were so sad to have to leave :(

We received a very warm welcome from Amanda, accompanied by a refreshing glass of chilled wine for the adults, and home made lemonade for the children. She had prepared a starter food package for us, as we arrived late in the evening, and the house was immaculate from top to bottom. Imaginative decoration in tandem with all practical necessities ensured that we felt completely relaxed within minutes of our arrival, and even managed a midnight swim in the charming pool before bedtime ! Given that our 6 children are aged from 6 to 14, we were worried that they might become bored in such a tranquil environment, but the wide range of local activities, such as the marvellous markets and child friendly restaurants, as well as Amanda`s surprise treasure hunt for the children (!!) ensured a busy and fulfilling programme, interrupted by delicious local produce and excellent local wines. We can`t wait to go and stay again !

The pool was heated to about 29 degrees & was just wonderful to get into & relax. The temperature during the day was an average 26-28 degrees & we only had one day of rain. Simon who looked after the pool twice a week also gave us some very good advice when we asked about having an overnight trip to Spain. He suggested going to Gerona first, we visited the old town as advised & thoroughly enjoyed it. We can certainly recommend this property, the area surrounding it was superb with fantastic views. You do need a car but as we had driven there that was no problem. Castelnou is a definite must for a visit.
