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.

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.

Loved the wall of mirrors in the bathroom. Shutters kept the house cool when the temperature was in the high 30s. Exceptionally well equipped but beware no wi-fi or television, actually made a refreshing screen-free fortnight!! Wi-if available in the excellent Sybercafe in Ceret (great smoothies too). Shady garden with outside furniture, including hammock and plenty of sun around the pool which was a delight, surrounded by lush vegetation and a rockery. Pool furniture could do with an upgrade. Ceret itself has everything you could want, lively bars and restaurants, very interesting Museum of Modern Art, stunning walks from the centre of town and both leisurely flattish cycle tracks and full on hairpin bend 10k ascents into the hills. Very useful blue folder of activities and restaurant. Gilles and Nicole who hold the key to the property are charming and incredibly helpful and there is a very amiable neighbour whose name escapes me. All in all would thoroughly recommend the property and would definitely return.

The children loved the pool so much that it was hard to interest them in nearby activities. With three levels, each generation had privacy. We made good use of the well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed the nearness of the pool outside. The neighborhood was residential and quiet at night even the boisterous weekend of the bullfight festivities. We often walked into town for pizza or dinner at one of the many good restaurants. At Atelier Fred we celebrated my 70th birthday with wonderful food, wine and creative desserts. The Mediterranean beaches are less than an hour away and many beautiful hiking trails are nearby. On a hot day all of us enjoyed the Gorges du Fou walkway over cold rushing water. My daughter and I drove to the factory where espadrilles are made. Chris was a gracious host even when we arrived early with groceries that needed refrigeration. He provided much information about the house and made us feel at home. We hope to return again soon.

The house was nice and clean, with new pillows and an especially verdant garden. There's even a pond with carps in the back now! Would recommend this villa to anyone.
