Make a self catering villa in Prats-de-Mollo, France your home away from home

This charming border town is the very last town in France, just 13km (8 miles) before the Spanish border, so it enjoys a very unique Spanish atmosphere. Located in the Vallespir region of Languedoc-Roussillon, Prats-de-Mollo enjoys the best of the mountains and the Med. Petanque, a type of French bowls, is played in the main square of El Firal. This walled city on the banks of the River Tech has an interesting history and has a Fort on the top of the hillside which was reputedly built to keep the Spanish out and the locals in check. A self-catering apartment in Prats-de-Mollo makes a great centre for exploring both sides of the border.

The house is spacious, comfortable and well laid out, with everything you need, and Pauline and Adrian are warm, welcoming and discreet hosts. Ample outdoor furniture and barbecue – great to be eating outdoors in early October on the covered terrace! The views are splendid – rolling wooded hills and Mount Canigou in the distance to watch in all its changing moods - and a very peaceful location. Well placed for trips to the coast or the mountains. Loved it, and hope to return. Tina and Wai-Cheung

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!!
