Patricia, the owner, was a delight to deal with (not a typical experience) and nothing we asked was too much trouble. Thank you, Patricia for a wonderful holiday. Even in late September/October the weather played its part on most days and we had a great time with temperatures in the late 20s. The pool was wonderful (if a little chilly at this time of year) but much needed to cool off. Swimming while able to look up at Mount Canigou made it very special. The local scenery is spectacular and Villefranche de Conflet, just at the bottom of the hill, is a really interesting town with a fascinating history. The market in Prades is, primarily, a local market (at this time of year, at least) and fascinating for that. We found nice restaurants in Villefranche, Vernet les Bains and Prades. Our particular favourites were Bistrot le Cortal in Vernet (hard to find but worth the effort) and El Patio in Prades (not to be confused with Le Patio in Villefranche which we thought was OK but no more). We holiday in Southern France every year and it was a little strange to be in an area with no vineyards. If, however, you venture towards the coast (highly recommend Collioure), or anywhere near Thuir, I can highly recommend Domaine Treloar (owned by a Brit and a Kiwi) at Trouillas. As a white wine fan, their One Block Muscat is wonderful - and the reds aren't bad either!!
