Make holiday rental accommodation or a property in Prades, France your home away from home

Idyllically situated between the golden beaches of the Mediterranean coastline and the ski resorts of the Pyrenees, Prades, France is a magnificent place to take a holiday rental, especially as you can easily take a day trip into Andorra or northern Spain. Prades is the capital city of the Conflent region of Pyrenees-Orientales, and has been an important town in French history due to its position at the meeting of several rivers at the base of the Canigou Mountains. There is a strong Catalan influence in the town, which combined with the exceptional climate and stunning scenery make Prades a wonderfully nice place to be.

Things to do on holiday in Prades, France

The town of Prades is a very pretty, red roofed settlement, offering all the shops and services you need, so there is no need to trek to a larger town for supplies for a self catering holiday in Prades. The Tuesday market is always busy and loud as it is one of the town’s most social weekly events, and you can pick up some great bargains.

The open, natural environment of Prades, France, means that it is a haven for walkers. Each marked trail around the town is surrounded by wild flowers and unique geological features, especially if you head into the soaring peaks of the mystical Mount Canigou. There are huge swathes of the land included in national parks due to the important, unspoilt nature they contain. These are especially popular for walkers as there are some excellent hiking trails. Many of these routes are also aimed for use on mountain biking and riding holidays, all of which thrive from Prades. There are stables and mountain biking centres in and around Prades from which you can book from a short day trip up to a week long excursion on bike, horseback or even on a donkey, which is a great way to get that little bit closer to nature, allowing true relaxation whilst on a Prades holiday.

The shear rock faces of the Canigou Mountains are pitted and rugged, perfect for adventurers staying in Prades property to investigate using ropes, crampons and headlamps. Caving, canyoning and climbing holidays are spectacular, as the natural environment could have been designed specifically for the activities!

The glorious beaches of the Mediterranean are just half an hours drive from a Prades property too, meaning that if the temperatures soar too high to take to the hills, you can very easily spend a day relaxing on the beach with the soft, golden and between your toes and the sound of the Mediterranean gently lapping the shore filling your ears.

Every year, Prades’ favourite son, the composer Pablo Casals, is honoured with the huge Pablo Casals Festival of Chamber Music (lasting 3 weeks from the end of July). If you enjoy your films, the Prades Festival of Films, the Cine-Rencontres (mid-July), occurs during the summer too, as well as a host of sporting events, fetes and shows, which make the summer months a hugely enjoyable and entertaining time to rent a Prades property.

Depending on your choice of activities while staying in a Prades property will determine which of the surrounding villages will be most appealing.

If you would like a day by the sea during the summer, Saint Cyprien is a delightful seaside resort offering a glorious sweeping beach and all the water sport facilities you could wish for.

Lovely apartment. Would gladly return.

5 of 5
The appartment is on the first floor, so not too many steps, and is spacious, well laid out, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The bedrooms are pretty, the bed comfortable, and there is a good supply of towels. It's a two minute walk to the historic centre and art museum. We managed to park right outside on the road. Only one negative - the heating was switched on just before we arrived, so it was a day before we felt warm. If we go again in the winter, I would ask for the heating to be put on earlier. We would return to the appartment gladly. It worked so well for us and would for up to six people.

Our holiday in villa Caudies

5 of 5
We stayed with friends in the last two weeks in September 2016 at the Villa Caudies. We were pleasantly surprised to find a beautiful open plan space. Very well equipped. Patio doors leading out to a terrace, equipped with barbecue and large table and chairs, with stunning views of the mountains. To the rear of the villa a lovely swimming pool, once again with a stunning back drop of the mountains. We spent a lot of our time lounging around the very private swimming pool, with temperatures around about 25 degrees. The nearest village is Caudies which is only five minutes away which has a few amenities, but we found shopping at Carrefour at St Pauls a little cheaper, and only another 15 minutes extra drive. Whilst most of our party lazed around the pool, the more adventurous of us enjoyed some of the extreme sports on offer. We started with the Via Ferratta at St Pauls in the morning, a fantastic climb and high wire traverses. Then in the afternoon we booked to do some white water rafting and some hydro speed. A fantastic day but very tiring. On our last evening we decided to go to a restaurant we spotted just down the road called Le Rebenty. We had a lovely meal, I personally enjoyed the Kwak beer served in a strange glass! A fantastic holiday in a superb location. We will be booking again especially as the owner is dog friendly.
