Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Thuir, France your home away from home

Deep in the countryside of Pyrenees-Orientales, Thuir is magically positioned between the warm, azure waters of the Mediterranean Coast and the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees. This is undeniably a part of French Catalonia, where the influences of the Catalan culture can be seen in every aspect of life. Thuir is wonderfully traditional, with beautiful Catalan architecture creating the backbone of the town. Although Thuir is small, its streets hide a number of treasures, including an excellent weekly market, and there is always a huge amount of activity going on. Throughout the year, a string of festivals and events bring the Catalan culture even more clearly to life, as traditional dancing, music and feasts spill out into the squares and streets of the town.

There are some excellent tours and wine tasting holidays to be had, or you can simply sit on the balcony of your Thuir villa, looking out over the landscape and sipping a glass of the local vintage, letting any stress simply drift away.

Delightful stay!

5 of 5
We had a lovely relaxing holiday here. 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

Highly recommended.

We stayed with Moray and Ann at Les Glycines for 11 days. We cannot recommend this property highly enough - so peaceful and quiet - and such kind and welcoming hosts. Llupia itself is a small village - but there is a nearby supermarket and local shops within 10 minutes walk of the property. It is well situated for touring the area and has easy road access. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Catalonia - and we would go back again. So much we didn't manage to see in our 11 days there. Thanks must go to Moray and Ann for making us feel so at home and welcome in their cosy gite. Highly recommended - 5 Star hosts and a 5 Star property.
