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 :)

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    Great place to stay in Céret as the flat is very central, extremely well equipped, pretty spacious and has a lovely little garden. Should we return to Céret we would definitely stay there again.

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    Spacious and homely place with well stocked up larder. Wifi in gite would have scored 5 stars. Although we could get to a cafe a few kilometres away to get the internet this is not always the most convenient option. Was a little frustrating at times as there was no mobile reception either. Great stay though. I can recommend this place.
