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.

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 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.

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.

Large well equiped villa in a perfect location to explore the Pyrenee's.

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in this lovingly renovated villa with it's various seating area's to avoid the heat of the sun.The 2 five star attractions of this villa are the kitchen/balcony area and the pool so a direct connection between the two via a small additional staircase would make this property just about perfect. Many thanks to Angela for her prompt reply's to my questions.

Lovely villa in beautiful surroundings

5 of 5
This is the perfect place to get away from it all - quiet and private with stunning views of the surrounding hills. Very well equipped villa with a light and airy feel. Good facilities - heated pool, covered terrace so you can eat al fresco even when it's raining, TV, reliable internet, modern kitchen. The delightful owners, Adrian and Pauline, are on hand if you need anything, but otherwise just let you get on and enjoy your holiday. Lots to see and do in the area, whether you're a walker, history buff, wine enthusiast or culture vulture. Nice beaches are not too far away either. We couldn't ask for more and really enjoyed our week-long stay.
