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.

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.

We have been coming to Ceret for 35 years on and off and have stayed in a wide variety of places. Wendy's flat is definitely our favourite. It is comfortable, efficient and extremely well equipped. The location is perfect; in the old town, but quiet and calm; (even when the wonderful market is set up right outside the door all is quiet within the flat!) We can highly recommend everything about the flat and Ceret itself and are looking forward already to our next visit.

We visited for the day in April, and got a taste for it. I doubt any other areas of France have such a great combination of amazing scenery, things to do and see, atmosphere and food. The house was very well presented and huge for just the three of us. The pool was a great size and very refreshing when the outside temperature was in the mid 30s. Views from the house of Mt Canigou and the valley were spectacular and ever changing. We ate most of our meals outside and made use of the built in barbecue . The house is well equipped and comfortable, wifi worked faultlessly. We played Boules in the drive, which was good fun. The house is on the top of a ridge and isn't overlooked. We had planned to make use of the bikes at the property, but it was a bit too hot during our stay. We did walk into the centre of Ceret and back one evening, about 30 mins each way, and would happily do so again if came back. Ceret has lots on offer for a town of its size. We ate in the Bisbe one lunchtime on the vine covered terrace, the food was imaginative and well presented as well as tasting fantastic. On Bob's recommendation we booked L'atelier du Fred for a celebration Birthday meal for our son. You definitely need to book for a table in the evening as it's very popular. The menu is quite small....three dishes per course, but excellent quality and the service was extremely good for France. Interesting dishes, my son had a duo of squid and beef canalone.....which sounds bizarre, but worked really well. Lots of good places to visit, we headed down to Figueras to the Dali Museum then across to the Costa Brava coast one day, and went to Perpignan another day. Perpignan is very pleasant to stroll around and felt smaller than we expected, will visit again. We also visited a few castles and old villages, there is a tremendous amount to see and do within a 50 mile radius. Bob did a first rate job of looking after us on behalf of the owners. He was very quick to respond to email enquirers, flexible in meeting our needs and very well organised. He knows the area well and is a great source of information and advice to help make the most of your time on holiday. In summary, great house, great views....fantastic for outside living. Top quality location. very well run.

It was very clean and tidy as we arrived and we especially loved the small welcome package the owner left for us in the kitchen.We really loved to take our breakfast on the lovely terrace. It is close located to the heart of Ceret with its lovely cafe's and weekly market. We really loved that place and would love to come back in the near future.
