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.

Prades, the capital of Conflent, is usually the entry point for visitors to the region, as it is easily accessible by train from Perpignan.

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.

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.

Todo era nuevo, comodísimo y estaba muy limpio. El propietario es encantador y muy servicial en todo lo que necesitamos, nos hizo buenas sugerencias sobre los lugares a visitar. El apartamento tiene wifi potente, cocina bien equipada y camas muy cómodas. Nuestra estancia fue muy agradable. La zona es preciosa y muy tranquila. ¡No se puede pedir más!

The owners couldn't do enough for us, on arrival they gave us lots of information. The appartment was spotless and the beds were very comfortable. You can enjoy a morning cuppa looking at Mount Canigou from your apartment which is a great view. The appartment is in a perfect location to visit the local beaches about a 30 min drive. There is an open swimming pool within a 5 min walk of the apartment and a very nice lake about a 10 min drive. Lots of local walks and a perfect location to cycle, although your either going up or down. I would defiantly recommend a stay here, lots of activities for the kids and adults. Prades has many local bars and restaurants which are good value. It also has a weekly market, which literally sells everything and is worth a look. A great holiday, we would definatley stay again.

The booking was straightforward and the owner friendly and efficient. We had previously stayed here so knew what to expect but it has undergone some improvements and is all the better for it. When we arrived, the villa was spotless and was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday stay so no need to take any little extras that we normally do when staying away. The location is absolutely stunning, set in a small village nestled amongst the mountain scenery. The pool is beautiful, a good size and well maintained by the caretaker who lives nearby. He is a gem of a neighbour, a lovely, friendly man, on call in case of any problems and happy to share his local knowledge of places and things to do. There is so much to do in and around the surrounding area to suit all tastes. As is our habit, we like to have a day out and then have the next day off, to recover! We still managed to do so much, even with days off factored in. The nearby Villefranche de Conflent is a definite must see. We spent time wandering the little streets and had a meal in one of the restaurants there, Le Patio, which was delicious (we would recommend the brochettes either with beef or duck) YUM! We also took a hair raising 4x4 trip up to the Fort above the village (not for the fainthearted!), wandered around the fort and then tackled the 500+ steps down through the tunnel back to the village. Great fun! Another day was spent in Carcassonne, about an hour and a half by car but well worth a day out as it is a beautiful, walled, Medieval city. Le Petit Train Jaune leaves from nearby Villefranche and was also amazing. We travelled as far as Font Romeu, happy to just sit back and take in the breath taking scenery , don't forget your camera. The highlight of our trip was a boat trip, dolphin watching (Navivoile.com) We left from Port Vendres and spent a wonderful few hours in the company of some beautiful bottlenose dolphins. Obviously it is not guaranteed that you will see any, but we hit the jackpot and were thrilled and enchanted by them for nearly 2 hours. Wow! An amazing experience. The crew were fantastic and very knowledgeable, there was a snack bar on board as well as very good facilities. We had an absolutely amazing time in this beautiful villa. We would thoroughly recommend the property and will certainly be returning soon. Thank you so much.
