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!!).

                                                          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.

                                                          Absolutely fantastic. Can't wait to go back!

                                                          Well what can I say. The whole stay was fantastic. We we're greeted by Francoise the host on arrival. The apartment was spotless and well equipped with everything you would ever need. It's a great location that gives right on to the beach and the owners left us with a free parking pass that can be used in the car park directly in front of the apartment. The apartment itself is stylishly decorated and comes with all mod cons. The location is fantastic with a host of restaurants within walking distance (La Plage Gourmande is a must -directly opposite the carousel). There was a slight mix up with the booking (our fault) but the hosts sorted this out quickly and were contactable throughout our stay. A brilliant holiday in Canet. Definitely recommend.

                                                          Our first holiday so far south and the property did not disappoint. It was a very comfortable "home from home" and catered for our large family of children and grandchildren and can highly recommend it! The pool was a great hit with all and us oldies enjoyed the swing bed in the shade and the "al fresco" dining was a great added bonus. As we did not explore the whole area enough we have re-booked for 2016. Whether we do the drive again will need careful consideration however Perpignan airport does seem an inviting alternative as one of the daughters took advantage of it this time and found it very easy being 15 minutes away!
