Canet Plage - South west is the best! (The other south of France)

Canet Plage is a seaside town situated along the Mediterranean coastline of southern France near to the Spanish border. The region around is called Languedoc-Roussillon where the flat land of the Camargue meets the skirt of the Pyrenees mountains.

It is open all year so that autumn/spring breaks are enjoyable- some shops and restaurants will be open and there are always people around. Canet Plage benefits from being close to the beautiful working town of Perpignan with lots of small shops and cafes. The local bus service is very cheap and reliable and takes you via Canet Village.

The geographical diversity around Canet Plage makes it possible to visit and ski in the mountains. The roads are never busy outside August and the scenery is stunning. You can have your breakfast overlooking the sea and spend the day surrounded by beautiful countryside and dynamic mountain slopes.

The vineyards around the region and into nearby Corbiere, Fitou and Minervois are open to visitors. The contrast between the small villages such as Collioure and the larger towns such as Beziers, Carcassonne and the fabulous cities of Montpelier in France or Girona in Spain make your stay incredibly varied. All have places to park and Tourist Offices which help you to easily find your way round.

It is still very ‘French’ but the shops/restaurants can speak English; the people are friendly and helpful. The food is influenced by a mixture of French and Spanish cuisine. Fish is the main protein but we all like the bread and aioli – a garlic mayonnaise which is fab.

There is a wide pavement for walking and cycling by the sea and the flatness means it is enjoyable; the marina and harbour wall are perfect for evening walks. It feels very safe at night.

There is a market most days and local food/wine is easy to buy. Some shops and supermarkets sell prepared local dishes which makes life very easy if you have decided to eat at home.

Parking is not a problem outside August. The flat land at Canet Plage means that cycling, running and walking are serious leisure pursuits along the very long coastal road. Many people enjoy cycling along the sea road to the next town of St Cyprien, stopping for a swim or a beer and then cycling home.

Perpignan airport is only 20 minutes by car. The airport at Girona is only an hour away which gives great flexibility for flights. The rail link from Perpignan to Barcelona is being updated for December 2009 so that the journey time will be 11/2 hours which means that you can visit Spain for a day!

The long sandy beach which is never overcrowded and safe for young children.

Canet Plage offers visitors easy choices for activities which suit all interests- it is sometimes difficult to find time to sit in a bar and read the newspaper!(Or so my husband moans!!).

                                                                  We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very helpful when I was arranging transport and trying to find out more about the area. The house is very comfortable with lots of space (kitchen space more limited but still has everything you would need). We really enjoyed sitting outside for all our meals (great sized table, we had 9 adults). I'd recommend it particularly for a short break as its near the airport (20 mins in a taxi), and Perpignan (which is lovely). There are two nice villages either side of the house. Its 2km to St. Nazaire (short cycle on cycle track) which had a market on Sat morning and there was a butchers, supermarket, bakery etc. We also walked to Canet village (3km) and had a lovely meal there. Having a car would be better though, we didn't rent one and we needed to book taxis in advance. For us the house was really homely, was ideal for a group and would definitely work for families.

                                                                  Great location, easy to walk out to the restaurants and bars and a few minutes from the beach.Small train to get you to the main square which is 3 euros return and the last on leaves at midnight. The property is well maintained and is of a high quality no need to take beach towels , pop up tent for the beach , body board and umbrella all provided by the owner. The only let down is no air conditioning but two fans provided and if you are a light sleeper it is above a small shop and next to a bakers who seen to have delivery every hour during the night! Getting to the property we paid 48 euros in a taxi from Perpignan airport as you come out of the airport turn left you will see a bus stop take the bus(no.7) into the town center for 1 euro 30 cents and then take the no.6 bus to Canet for the same price!

                                                                  This was a truly unforgettable holiday made perfect by staying in this magnificent beachfront penthouse apartment. On our arrival the owner's personal assistant was very welcoming and made us immediately feel' at home'. The apartment was immaculately clean, well maintained and luxuriously appointed to include the latest 4K definition TV and sound system. The views from the huge balcony are stunning and the pictures on the web simply do not do it justice. Bars, shops and local restaurants are on your doorstep and the centre of Canet Plage is only a 10 minute gentle stroll along a beautiful promenade. The owner was totally professional and extremely kind taking time to email me with "must see" sights in the area and recommendations for local restaurants in Canet. We have travelled widely and can honestly say that this holiday was the best in 32 years of travel and I genuinely cannot think of one negative point. We will be visiting this beautiful area of France again and will definitely book this apartment if available. Highly recommended. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
