Our first visit to this region of France. We found the property easily following excellent directions from owner. The apartment was very well equipped with everything needed to make it feel 'home from home'. The style of decor was tasteful and its fair to say that we spent a considerable part of our holiday at the apartment, eating some meals on the patio. The view of Pic De Canigou provides a stunning backdrop to this picturesque village. The maze of winding alleyways provide a multitude of different routes up to the church/restaurants and back.
The village, whilst looking beautiful, has very few facilities. It took us a while to discover the nearest Boulangerie and supermarket (Prades). We're still not sure we understand the opening hours of shops! This would have been useful info to acquire in advance as we arrived on Sunday. The two restaurants (one bar/cafe style and one Tapas bar) were both well-positioned and a pleasure to visit.
We found Eus to be a superb base from which to explore the area and visited Villefranche De Conflent, Abbaye St Martin, Castelnou, etc. We now wish to return with walking gear to explore the mountains a little more closely.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday.
We found the house mostly well equipped, the pool area and covered lounge area was very relaxing and thoughtfully laid out. Sournia village is a great example of a fast disappearing traditional French village, very friendly and one of our highlights was watching France win the World Cup in the very hospitable local bar. The owners have been very helpful and always available. A beautiful area and our stay wasn't long enough!
