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

Ceret, the capital of the Vallespir region of southern France, has long been a favourite destination with visitors, many of whom have ended up buying property in Ceret and staying there all year round. The cobbled streets of the old town are kept shadowed from the summer sun by lines of trees, and the delightful open squares for which Ceret, France is known are lined with delightful cafes and ancient fountains, making this one of the prettiest places in the region, far from the hustle and bustle of modern life. It is little wonder that those who take a self catering Ceret villa once usually return year after year!

Things to do on holiday in Ceret, France

The town is a delightful place to explore on foot. If you are staying in a self catering villa in Ceret, the huge Saturday market in Place Pablo-Picasso will certainly be of interest. The most celebrated attraction within the town is the Musee d'art Moderne Ceret, which is filled to breaking point with magnificent works by Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and Dali among others. The reason this small town has such a huge artistic wealth is due to the fact that it has always been a favourite source of inspiration for many artists, with many renting Ceret villas for long periods of time.

The Cherry Festival is held either at the end of May or the beginning of June, depending on when the harvest ripens, and is a magnificent time to take a rental property in Ceret. The town takes on a carnival atmosphere, with the surprisingly delicious taste of cherry beer and competitions like stone spitting contests springing up in many of the squares! The main festival in Ceret is the fantastic Le Feria in July, on the closest weekend to Bastille Day, when the whole town is filled with market stalls serving the finest of local foods, and the air is filled with the sound of music and dancing. There is also a bull running event during Le Feria, where, unlike in Pamplona, young men and women try to catch the bull from behind, and hand on to its tail for as long as possible, usually resulting in some spectacular bruises!

Taking a Ceret villa is a magnificent way to explore the countryside which surrounds the town. Situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Ceret is surrounded by some of the most exciting scenery in southern France, with plunging cliffs, shear gorges, gushing rivers and soaring mountains, often capped with imposing castles, all set to a backdrop of the glistening Mediterranean Sea. This is an outdoor activity haven, and there are very few sports which Ceret is not set up perfectly to do. The swimming lake at St Jean-Pla-de-Cotrs is a genuine delight in which you can refresh yourself from the heat of the day.

Its in a great location within walking distance from the town (and the worlds greatest take away pizza truck!). The house itself has enormous charm - which is helped by the lovely notes that are around it from its owners about how to operate/use different things. It is well maintained and immaculately clean, with 3 spacious bedrooms, a garden, terrace and swimming pool (as a mom of 2 smallies under 5 it was brilliant that the pool was gated out of reach of tiny hands so meant we were always with them in the pool area) We created a whole host of new memories in Ceret, many of which centered around this amazing property which really did become our home from home while we were away. Now...........if I can just get back there minus the smallies above - heaven :) Cannot recommend this property enough - for couples/families alike - it certainly brings that joie de vie!!!! Bliss :)

Up 2 flights of steps, we had a charming view and the added advantage of an apartment to come back to and relax in during the day. Friends who were staying in nearby hotels were very jealous. All the equipment we needed was there. Charmingly furnished. Headroom is limited upstairs - be warned, but worked OK for us.
