The capital of Vallespir, Ceret, is a maze of narrow streets and gurgling streams which give the town a pleasant laid back character. The Archaeological Museum of Ceret shows artefacts from the Middle Ages back to pre-historic times, and the town is host to a magnificent array of festivals and parades including the Procession of the Resuscitated on Easter Sunday, the Cherry Fair and Flamenco Festival in June, Sardine Festival and bullfighting Feria.

Arles-sur-Tech also has rich traditions and legends.

Lovely apartment. Would gladly return.

5 of 5
The appartment is on the first floor, so not too many steps, and is spacious, well laid out, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The bedrooms are pretty, the bed comfortable, and there is a good supply of towels. It's a two minute walk to the historic centre and art museum. We managed to park right outside on the road. Only one negative - the heating was switched on just before we arrived, so it was a day before we felt warm. If we go again in the winter, I would ask for the heating to be put on earlier. We would return to the appartment gladly. It worked so well for us and would for up to six people.

In a word - BLISS!

5 of 5
What a beautiful beautiful house! 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 :)
