Had a great time, fabulous weather for late October! Lots of hot water and a comfy bed. Spacious with a rooftop terrace, Very rustic .Phillipe and his wife are very welcoming.The only downside for us was the 2 sets of church bells that chime on the hour all night.Very cheap bus fares only 1 euro per journey and good walks to the next villages.
The villa is in a beautiful location with views over Ceret and the mountains beyond. The apartment overlooks the lovely garden which is terraced down to the stream below and the large pool is surrounded by flowers and butterflies. We never tired of gazing at the view from our patio and watching the birds, butterflies and, at dusk, bats dart around the trees.
There is so much to see in the area and something to suit everyone-from medieval villages and mountains to sandy beaches and serious shopping. Ceret has one of the best weekly markets around, an excellent art museum and some wonderful cafes and restaurants. A very cheap (1 euro) daily bus runs to Perpignan which has lots of great museums and historical sites to visit. Collioure is quite simply the most beautiful coastal town you will ever see although get there early as it's almost impossible to park anywhere after 9.30am.
Annie, the owner, is a wonderful host and spent time telling us about the area, lending us maps and writing out routes to those hidden gems in the Vallespir region. She ensured we had all we needed and the apartment was well supplied with local guide books. Annie's local knowledge was invaluable and she certainly looked after us very well.
