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.

The amenities were all working with a good kitchen and even a washing machine, and it was very clean and well maintained. There is a lot of natural light, which we personally love. Ceret is a cute town with a very nice bustling market on Saturdays spread over the entire town, where we found all the nice specialities of the region. We also went for a nice walk in the hills just outside of town which we can recommend. Overall, the host Edmond was very attentive and helpful, giving us tips about the town and region. We loved our stay and would definitely recommend this apartment if you are planning to stay in the region. We will be back!

It was just perfect. The peace and quiet was tangible and the views from both the back and the front of the apartment were stunning. Each morning, when David and I sat on the patio to have our cup of tea we were constantly amazed by the wildlife and the beauty of the butterflies and especially the little hummingbird moth which visited us! Thank you to for the inspiration you gave me with the watercolour painting. I So enjoyed our sessions together and learning from each other's ideas and experiences. Last but not least, all the suggestions of places to see and visit and the cookery class for Jonny and Priscilla. Again...a big thank you!
