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 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!

This is an outdoor activity haven, and there are very few sports which Ceret is not set up perfectly to do.

Wonderful sun terrace with great views over gardens and wooded hillsides, with Canigou in the distance. Liz, the local contact, was a wonderful help. Well placed within the old part of town, handy for all shops and restaurants etc if required, but equally well placed for the numerous interesting walks / hikes. No parking outside but close proximity to large public (free) car parking. Packed full of interesting information on things to do, maps, guide books, good internet connection. Tastefully furnished, wonderful spacious kitchen. A little bit hot at the end of August for northern Europeans, but the bedroom fans helped and the footers at the end of the beds were restrictive for very tall people (I am), but those were my only pretty minor grumbles. Sensible guidance over any breakages - try to replace with similar please. Pretty good value for money. This is a great apartment and Ceret is a wonderful town in a magnificent part of southern France and hence thoroughly recommended.

Plenty of street entertainment and fans to keep cool at night.Jay was helpful and met us on arrival and departure. Parking free and close by. We had a lovely relaxing two weeks. On the downside no channels available on satellite tv although there was a dvd player with a small selection of dvds. No wifi and could have done with a couple more pillows.
