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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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.

Its in a great location within walking distance from the town (and the worlds greatest take away pizza truck!). The house itself has enormous charm - which is helped by the lovely notes that are around it from its owners about how to operate/use different things. It is well maintained and immaculately clean, with 3 spacious bedrooms, a garden, terrace and swimming pool (as a mom of 2 smallies under 5 it was brilliant that the pool was gated out of reach of tiny hands so meant we were always with them in the pool area) We created a whole host of new memories in Ceret, many of which centered around this amazing property which really did become our home from home while we were away. Now...........if I can just get back there minus the smallies above - heaven :) Cannot recommend this property enough - for couples/families alike - it certainly brings that joie de vie!!!! Bliss :)
