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.

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!

After following the detailed directions we arrived at the house in Eus and were blown away by the stunning setting, with views across the valley and towards the mountains in one direction then up to the beautiful village above in the other. The house was incredibly well equipped for our party of four adults and five children, especially the kitchen that had every conceivable pot, utensil and modcon you could wish for. The pool was perfect and although not fenced off the alarm system gave us the peace of mind we needed with five children aged from 8 to 16 months. The location is fabulous, with a cafe bistrot and a fantastic tapas restaurant a short walk away up the hill. There is a hypermarket a very short drive away in Prades and lots of interesting places to visit nearby such as Villefranche and the Little Yellow Train. As a keen runner, I was spoilt for choice with the beautiful trails up and around the hills practically on the doorstep. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing break and with any luck will be returning in the future.

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.
