Corneilla de Conflent, our village!

Gite Corneilla is situated at an altitude of 600 m at the foot of Mount Canigou, peak of 2784 m. In the centre of the village there is a boulangie with a small shop and a post office and tourist information. It is the perfect starting point to the Canigou Massif by foot or bike.

The Church of Corneilla Conflent, dates xi and xii century, a jewel of Romanesque art.

Vernet Les Bains, 3 kms from base

Renowned for its thermal health resort, spa, pools and gym, it is also at the foot of the Canigou massif - the sacred mountain of the Catalans, which rises to 2785 meters - in a small valley sheltered from the wind and enjoying plenty of sunshine (300 days per year)

There are huge hiking opportunities around the Canigou Massif and the valley of Cady and enjoy a visit to the waterfalls.

Villefranche de Conflent, 3kms from base.

The walled city of Villefranche de Conflent holds a prestigious past of military and economic Conflent, left preserved in the condition it enjoyed in the late seventeenth century. The ramparts have a remarkable stratification of military construction techniques, the Romanesque church of St-Jacques, narrow streets and shops of craftsmen. The shops now occupied by local artisans, cafes and restaurants.

The Yellow Train,

From the station of Villefranche de Conflent, this jolly yellow train serves more than 20 villages to and from the heights of the Pyrenees-Orientales as far as Latour de Carol.
