Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Prades - Bellevue House

Equipped to modern standards, air-conditioned, ideal for 2-8 people, max 10

Our comfortable and well-equipped holiday home is situated halfway between the Mediterranean Sea and 5-6 Pyrenean Ski resorts. All this and a lot more can be reached within 30-50 minutes. The house contains six rooms on two floors, 135 square meters. It is great for family reunions but is also perfect for 3-4 couples travelling together, and is cozy enough for just two. A separate entrance to each of 2 floors. The house is cool in summer and warm in winter. Has a fenced garden with BBQ. We have a games room with a table for table tennis. The road from Perpignan is lined with apple, peach and apricot orchards that start blossoming in March - that's a view! The town centre, a 10-minute stroll, has a lot of restaurants - well worth visiting - and all the necessary shops, banks and ATMs, 2 very good supermarkets and one organic supermarket, selling a huge variety of whole foods and local organic wine. A large municipal swimming pool and tennis courts are in 1 km.

How to get there : By air: Our house is only 40 km from the airport of Perpignan. There are also 5 other airports within a 3 -hour drive: Girona, Carcassone, Montpellier, Barcelona, and Toulouse. By railway: You can use Eurostar and TGV to Perpignan. And once you've got here - you can either use the local railway to Prades (the station is in 700 m from the house) or hire a car (there is a garage in the house and also a parking space in front of the gate). In any case that won't take you more than 45 minutes - during the busiest time of the season. By car: we are in 39 km from the A9 Motorway which links Barcelona with central France.

Places to visit: Villefranche de Conflent A beautiful medieval town with complete fortified walls. There are also stalactites caves at a one km distance from the town. And the town itself is the starting point for a ride on Yellow Train, probably the number one attraction in the area. You can ride in open or closed top carriages admiring the breathtaking view. Abbeys at St Martin de Canigou & St Michel de Cuxa are superb examples of Romanesque architecture in beautiful locations. The 1.3 km long path to St Michel de Cuxa starts almost from the gate of the house. Tautavel Museum, believed to be the site of the oldest human in Europe. Spectacular panoramic views can be enjoyed in Les Lacs des Bouillouses where you can get by chair lift.The Perfume Tower in Mosset, the organ shaped mountains near Ille-sur-Tet can be reached in 15 minutes, the Solar Oven in 40 mi

Othr activities: Diving at Argeles, Banyuls, Port Vendres, Bacares, St Cyprien and Collioure. Golf in Marcevol (10 km, 9 holes) and at Font Romeu - 9 hole golf course at a beautiful mountain setting. St Cyprien-Plage on the coast has a 27 hole golf course. Spas and thermal baths in Vernet-les-Bains (Rheumatology) and Molitg-les-Bains (Respiratory pathologies and Skin diseases). Outstanding natural sulphurous hot springs in wonderful outdoor mountain setting in St Thomas les Bains. Fishing - trout, salmon, carps and pikes. There are 2 lakes in and around Prades. And a lot more -at some distance. Walking - all ability walking is available in abundance from your doorstep! Also within easy reach are the four nature reserves of Py, Mantet, Nyer and Jujois, as is the Carlit Massif, a very popular region for walking the GR10 coast to coast path and Pyrenean route across the massif. In addition, several summits are accessible to walks as well as challenging rock climbs.

Very comfortable charming villa with gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband spent 9 nights at the villa, and we enjoyed every minute of our romantic getaway! We easily found the villa location and we were really surprised by the nice, peaceful, restful atmosphere around. It was always a safe parking place for our car in front of the villa's window. We had no problems with parking. The villa is a large, comfortable house with 4 nice bedrooms (3 bedrooms with double beds and 1 bedroom with twin beds). This villa is suitable for a large family with children or few couples. It has 2 bathrooms. We liked very much an elegant living room with breathtaking mountains view. I enjoyed impressive sunrises from the balcony accompanied by the bells from a nearby monastery. The kitchen is well equipped with all the necessary things. For me it was a great pleasure to cook a delicious breakfasts and dinners in the well thought-out kitchen (almost like I have at home). Dishwashing machine, fridge, electric stove, pots, different pans, coffee maker, french press, beautiful wine glasses, condiments for cooking - we had everything we could think of. The villa has a small, very cute garden with oven grill and garden furniture. We had a great pleasure in cooking barbecue in the garden with mountains views, surrounded by greenery (even mimosa were blooming!), the singing birds and the crystal clear air. There were excellent wi-fi throughout the villa, HD-television, DVD-player in the living room. The villa is equipped with modern air conditioners. There is one super cool thing - table for ping pong! We had a couple of emotional ping pong games :) There are a lot of supermarkets not far away from the villa. We preferred Carrefour and Auchan. There are a lot of places of interest to visit (especially with children). We are big fans of hiking and we were happy to find out not far from the villa a lot of beautiful routes to conquer. I definitely want to go back and spend a few weeks in the summer in this very beautiful and quiet area. We dream to come back to this place with our children - perfect nature, delicious food, fruits and vegetables from the farms around, safe and peaceful atmosphere, comfortable house, a lot of interesting places to visit - ideal for relaxation. We are grateful for the well-appointed house, where really want to go back.

Practical, pleasant in Prades!

  • 4 of 5

This property has all the basic requirements for a stay in the Prades area. It sleeps 8 comfortably but could sleep 11 using available bed. Anna was excellent at keeping in touch and ensuring that all questions were answered.

The aircon is a godsend in the hotter months - the temperature at night rarely dropped below 20 degrees!

Many places of interest to visit close by. Prades itself is an unusual mix of locals and visitors and for such a small place is very busy. Plenty of places to eat. The walk back from town is OK - just the last uphill bit that catches your breath!

We went to Andorra for a few days and that was different too. Be sure to go to the thermal baths at Saint Thomas. Smelly (sulphur) but enjoyable.

The house has most of the facilities required for a stay. The garden is compact and the BBQ came in handy on a few occasions.

All in all a pleasant rental that would suit a family visiting the area.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and well equipped. You will find everything you need for preparing dinner etc. in the kitchen. The view from the balcony is really great and we have enjoyed sitting on it also in the evening, watching the sunset over the mountains and the lights of Prades.

The small town is not overcrowded by tourists. However, there is a busy life in town, especially on the market place with a few restaurants and bars and you can meet friendly people from almost all over the world .

Prades suits for making trips to different directions with a great viarity of both nature and cultural attractions.

We have been in the house for two weeks twice. At the first time, we had a visit of our grown up children for a few days and this year we spent our holidays as a 'simple' couple living on the first floor only. We will come back soon and would absolutely recommend this property to anybody who likes French 'Savoir Vivre'!

Thanks to Anna, who always gave us all the necessary support.

Lovely comfortable house.

  • 5 of 5

We love the house and the place, so are going to come back again - for the third time! Last time we were 5: 3 adults with 2 kids. We occupied all 4 bedrooms and were happy. I think this villa can accommodate up to 8 - in comfort or even 10 people, if part of them are kids. We adored the view and were spending much time on the balcony. The view is really gorgeous! We enjoyed barbeque in the garden and even ate apricots from the tree! We like the furnishing, and the kitchen is very well equipped. Our kids played ping-pong almost every day. We explored thermal baths and spa centers of the region and found 3 great places within easy reach. The one we liked most of all was St Thomas thermal resort with an open-air pool located in the most picturesque surroundings. We went to the sea several times though were not lucky about the weather. We also had an intensive sight seeing program: St Michael abbey (walked on foot), Royal Palace in Collioure (drive by car, about 40 min), Perfume Tower in Mosset (by car, 15 min), a beautiful artists’ village of Eus (by car, 5 min), ramparts of Villefranche (10 min by car), and Prades itself is a charming little town with very friendly people. We enjoyed Tuesday markets and bought a lot of things that were not quite necessary but somewhat irresistible. In a nutshell: it’s a great place for all ages. And we will like to come again this summer or autumn.

Prades is an activity heaven all year round. Skiing (December-March) - at 5 or 6 Pyrenean resorts (low cost, great quality) that could be reached in 40 min . Swimming – at 5-6 sea resorts (45 km to Canet plage) or at the lake Vinca (10 km) - good also for surfing and sailing. Or you can swim in warm waters at the thermal spas of St. Thomas-les-Bains - against the backdrop of the mountains. Another 2 spas in 6 km. There are 3 golf courses nearby, 15 min to the closest (9 holes), 4 natural reserves within easy reach - ideal for walkers. Animal Park at Les Angles, 2 adventure parks (6 km) will keep your whole family busy for quite a time. Also waiting for you are medieval fortresses and abbeys, Yellow Train, Picasso, Matisse, Dali masterpieces in local museums, music festivals and a lot of wine! And Prades holds weekly market.
