Jane Mawer purchased this house in 2006

Why Jane Mawer chose Conflent

Prades is situated in a beautiful and varied area with access to many activities and places of interest and a wonderful climate. The house is just of the central main square. It is an old stone house, one of the oldest in Prades, and was in need of considerable renovation when bought in 2006. It has retained a unique and homely charm, much appreciated by guests.

What makes this house unique

This house is within a short walking distance of all shops and amenites and the wonderful Tuesday market and is ideally situated for people attending the nearby spa for tratment. It has the added advantage of private parking and a small garage. There is a very large sun terrace (shaded with cannise during the summer) and a shady courtyard. The large open cellar has table tennis and a spare fridge. There is plenty of storeage space for bikes and equipment. The house is looked after by Judy and Chris Bloomfield, who meet guests on arrival and are available if needed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great week in the Pyrenees spent walking in the mountains. This place is a delight with everything you need. We were so lucky to book this at short notice. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

We didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We don't usually stay in properties near town centres, but we had such a great time and really enjoyed being able to walk to the shops and cafe's. The house was an absolute joy and cycling or walking from the house was also easy. There is so much to do in the area including walking to the local monasteries.

A charming village house with a terrace giving mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights in this spacious and tasteful home. Everywhere was spotlessly prepared and well-stocked and we particularly appreciated having supplies like washing-up liquid and kitchen roll to hand. The house is full of light, the beds really comfortable and the bathrooms modern. At ground floor level is a charming and shady courtyard to sit out in, surrounded by flowering plants and on the upper floor a lovely large terrace has views onto the Pyrenees - perfect for evening sundowners. The location couldn't be better - just off the main square yet very peaceful and with easy parking. The big market is on Tuesday mornings and there's a smaller farmers' market on Saturdays. We spent time exploring the mountains to the north and the Roussillon wine estates and would love to return for the annual Chamber Music Festival. The English owner is very helpful and efficient and her local representative gave us a charming welcome. We have no hesitation in highly recommending this listing.

Prades town house

  • 5 of 5

A lovely 3 story house in the centre of Prades. Quiet location just off the main square. My 3 teenage children loved the layout with a roof terrace and a cellar with table tennis.There is loads of space for bikes or sports equipment .Prades is ideally located to explore the Pyrenees Orientale and the Pays Cathare .There is lots to see and do . Prades has everything you need ,restaurants, boulangeries ,banks ,supermarkets and the whole time you have Mont Canigou to view from the house

Centrally located and well-equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 adults and 2 teenage girls and we very much enjoyed our week's stay at Maison l'Oranger, which is located just off the town square and has its own small parking space. This quirky house has been sympathetically renovated and is extremely well-equipped; there is a little nook for everyone to escape to, whether they seek sun, shade or television. Prades itself is a pleasant town with many amenities, some cafes, restaurants, shops, central supermarket and tourist information, as well as the bustling weekly market. There is also plenty to see around Prades itself. We enjoyed Villefranche with its 800 steps up to Fort Libéria, the lake beach at Vinça, woodland walk from Abbaye St Michel de Cruxa and around the Lac de Bouillouses in the hills. Jane was very responsive and helpful during the booking process and we were met by Rachel when we arrived who showed us everything and gave us plenty of information. It was very hot whilst we were there and we were grateful for the fans that were provided. We would recommend this property and location, and hope you have as good a time there as we did.

Great property, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location - quiet yet only seconds walk into Prades where you can find shops, bars, restaurants, boulangerie, cinema and more! A very comfortable, practical and quirky property with off-road parking and a good size terrace with great views of the mountains. Would definitely recommend.

Prades is a small market town, 45km west of Perpignan,tucked in the foothills of the Pyrenees & close to iconic Mont Canigou. The scenery is stunning and varied. To the East, in the Tet valley, are peach & cherry orchards, olives & vines, leading to the Mediterranean beaches (45min); to the West are the Mountains, with spectacular scenery, caves & warm springs. The town itself has a Romanesque church, overlooking a shady square, where cafes & restaurants spill onto the pavements and an excellent weekly market sells local produce. Both French & Catalan influences are seen in its culture, language, cuisine & festivals. Ancient churches & abbeys, picturesque villages & fortified towns reflect the area's rich history. There are nature reserves, mountain lakes & many wonderful hiking trails; the more adventurous may climb Mont Canigou (2785m). Activities include riding, mountain biking, climbing, fishing, canyoning & white-water rafting, swimming, skiing (45min), or you can relax in the thermal baths or spa. Good bus and train services.

Ski: There are a number of ski stations within an hour's drive of Prades, each with a range of runs to suit all abilities. Although accesible by train or bus,travel by car is advised. Consider stopping off at the Thermal baths of St Thomas on the way home- wonderful for relaxing tired muscles!
