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

Conflent, (which roughly corresponds to the region known as the Tet Valley), is a region of the Pyrenees-Orientales department of France. Set between the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the towering peaks of the Pyrenees, Conflent is a beautifully rural area adorned with spectacular geological features and breathtaking views.

Things to do on holiday in Conflent, France

Conflent is a mecca for walkers, hikers and mountain bikers. The undulating foothills of the Pyrenees make the ideal landscape for walking, especially the mythical Mount Canigou, which is supposed to look over the valley and protect it. There are a range of nature reserves here too, protecting some of the more fragile habitats and rarer species of plant and animal. After a hard day exploring the hills, there is nothing nicer than returning down the hill to the spa resorts of either Molitg les Bains or Vernet les Bains.

There is a strong equine heritage in Conflent, and riding holidays to Conflent are some of the most inspirational and taxing riding holidays to be found. Guided rides into the hills take you to picturesque, Romanesque churches and chapels high in the mountains, offering staggering views across France and the Mediterranean.

The geological features which adorn the landscape of Conflent have attracted climbers and pot holers to take self catering Conflent holiday accommodation for many years, and even the most experienced climbers can find extremely satisfying routes. Beginners are also in luck. There are a number of climbing, canyoning and pot holing schools to be found in the towns and villages in the Tet Valley.

Places to holiday in Conflent, France

Prades, the capital of Conflent, is usually the entry point for visitors to the region, as it is easily accessible by train from Perpignan. It is a very attractive town, with all the facilities needed to enjoy a holiday in a Conflent villa to the full. The annual music festival held in the Abbey of St-Michel-de-Cuxa is the highlight of the year in Prades.

A Conflent holiday rental in Vernet Les Bains is ideal for three reasons; its ideal position for hill walking below the peak of Mount Canigou, the vast geological museum and the great casino. Hill walkers and mountain climbers will be especially at home in Vernet Les Bains, as the village is not only perfectly positioned, but also provides all the services, shops and guides you could wish for.

Villefranche de Conflent is a real attraction for tourists, being a stunning fortified town high in the mountains. The famous Petit Train Jaune (little yellow train), is a great way to explore the mountains when you first arrive in a holiday rental in Conflent, but you need a bit of a head for heights! Estroher is possibly the most scenic village, high in the Pyrenees. The village has a charm driven by its medieval origins, yet there is still a distinct Mediterranean feel.

Weather in Conflent, France

Being high in the mountains, Confent’s climate is fairly hard to predict, but in general, summer temperatures average around 26°C, with peaks reaching into the mid 30’s. In winter, the skiing resorts of the Pyrenees are within striking distance, and temperatures are much cooler, often dipping below freezing.

The apartment was beautiful and the air conditioning worked very well, which was great given the 35 degree temperatures outside. The beds were very comfortable and there was even a fan in the upstairs bedroom which was much appreciated. The views were really lovely and we also enjoyed watching the pigeon hatching her chicks on the windowsill outside. There were lots of things to do in the area. We particularly enjoyed visiting the medieval town of Villefrance de Conflent and taking a trip on the Train Jaune through the Pyrenees where the views were stunning. We would recommend, unless you are travelling to the Spanish border on the train, that you get off at Mount Louis rather than continuing to Font Romeu as there is more to see there. The Grandes Grottes de Canalettes are amazing and a great respite from the heat. If you are into relaxing on the beach there is also a lake at Vinça when you can swim / paddle and catch some rays of sunshine. Café de la Paix in Prades is also worth a visit and there are also various places to eat in Villefranche de Conflent. I would recommend going to SuperU if you are looking for a variety of foods. There are several Boulangeries in Prades, we went to la Justinette and were very happy. It was useful to have a car but there are good transport links so if you really didn't want to drive you could manage without. All in all, we had a fantastic stay here and would thoroughly recommend this apartment and this area to anyone. Mark was really friendly and was available to help if we needed. Thanks so much for a wonderful, relaxing holiday. It was perfect!

Part of an outstanding villa surrounded by beautiful gardens and pool. Owners work hard to maintain the standard and we were well received by them with them always available to offer help and advice on the local area. We would definetly recommend this location as an excellent base to enjoy the Perpignan/Prades/Canigou Region.

Everywhere was spotlessly prepared and well-stocked and we particularly appreciated having supplies like washing-up liquid and kitchen roll to hand. The house is full of light, the beds really comfortable and the bathrooms modern. At ground floor level is a charming and shady courtyard to sit out in, surrounded by flowering plants and on the upper floor a lovely large terrace has views onto the Pyrenees - perfect for evening sundowners. The location couldn't be better - just off the main square yet very peaceful and with easy parking. The big market is on Tuesday mornings and there's a smaller farmers' market on Saturdays. We spent time exploring the mountains to the north and the Roussillon wine estates and would love to return for the annual Chamber Music Festival. The English owner is very helpful and efficient and her local representative gave us a charming welcome. We have no hesitation in highly recommending this listing.
