Overview

About the property

Ceret is a cultural experience - enjoy your stay.

Situated in the picturesque centre of Ceret, with its vibrant Catalan culture, Apartment Joslin provides all your needs to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The apartment has an open plan living space with a well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and washing machine/dryer. Two double bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds, are served by a walk-in shower room with WC and hand basin. (An additional sofa bed is available). The light and airy dining and sitting area opens on to a long balcony overlooking the Boulevard du Marachal Joffre.

Towering plane trees create a cool, relaxed atmosphere during warm, languid summers. Breathtaking surroundings attract artists, poets and musicians. The Musee d'Art Moderne celebrates Picasso, Dali, Braque and many other famous artists and exhibitions change regularly. Ceret continues to inspire artists who welcome visitors to their studios and galleries in the town. Cafes and bars spill out onto the pavements and good restaurants offer an excellent choice of local cuisine.

The Ceretan people are warm and friendly. Every Saturday throughout the year there is a lively street market and, on Tuesdays during the summer months, a magical night market. The Ceret calendar has plenty to offer. February is filled with Mimosa, March is Carnival Time, cherry blossom in April and the Cherry Festival in May. Celebrate the Festival de Musique in June and enjoy the Feria in July and the Festival de Sardanes (the traditional Catalan dance).

There is a traditional rhythm to the town, the church bell tolls, punctuating the day. People are up early, setting up stalls, cafes and restaurants and opening shops for fresh bread and produce. Musicians pass by, stopping at the cafes and bars to entertain. Artists capture the sunlight through the magnificent plane trees .

Lunch is served, good humour and laughter fills the air. Shops begin to close and Ceret quietens for an afternoon snooze. Refreshed, shutters re-open and afternoon/evening trade begins. Enjoy a cool aperitif or simply choose a restaurant for the evening. For the more active you can swim in the Mediterranean, walk in the mountains, shop in Perpignan, go to Spain for the day and visit the extraordinary 'Dali Museum' in Figueres (40 mins away) or even take a trip to Barcelona, a mere two hour drive away. All that Ceret offers will still be waiting for you when you return.

About Philip Joslin

Hi,

We are Jenny and Philip Joslin and we live in a beautiful part of Somerset, England. Currently we are both working but can't wait to spend more time in our Ceret pied-a-terre. Meanwhile, we are happy to share the delights it has to offer with you.

Philip Joslin purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Philip Joslin chose Vallespir

We first visited Ceret in 2000 after some close friends discovered it and made their home in the town. We immediatley fell in love with the culture, region and the catalan people who are so friendly and welcoming. One year, out of the blue, our apartment was for sale and we couldn't resist the opportunity. We particularly wanted to be able to walk out of our door to buy our bread and croissants in the mornings, have cafes and restaurants close by and most importantly not to have to rely on the car every time we needed something or wanted to go for a meal. Ceret offers something for everyone, we love the fact that there is always something going on throughout the year from a full blown festival to a low key classical concert in the Church St.Pierre de Ceret. We are outdoor people, we like to walk, swim and explore our surroundings and Ceret offers plenty of opportunity to do this. We enjoy the fact that the Spanish border is on our doorstep and we can visit many places there so easily. Equally we can motor to Perpignan, Sete or Montpellier for the day. The art of relaxation comes easily to us as well, we can while away the days, reading, people watching, listening to music and highlight the day with a superb evening meal at one of the many Ceret restaurants. Regional wine is also excellent and a cold glass of rose or a beer is most welcome after the Saturday market. Finally, under our apartment is a delightful 'vintage' boutique which is a joy to explore but we should warn you that it's hard to resist purchasing a little something ..

What makes this apartment unique

Right in the centre of the town you can easily walk to all the Cafes Restaurants, Galleries and the Museum of Modern Art is 50 meters away and if you are sitting on the balcony you may get serenaded by a wandering musician. You can leave the car in the car park!

A lovely stay in Ceret

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean , well maintained and located in a prime position in the middle of Ceret. On arrival internet and TV were not working, the owners representative Liz, worked very hard to sort out the problem over the next few days.

The double bed in the main bedroom was rock hard , otherwise we had a very comfortable stay.

Ceret is a charming town in a lovely part of France. Locals were generally quite friendly and town has all the amenities to meet the needs of of most visitors. A highlight of our visit was dining at Fred's wonderful restaraunt.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ceret.

Delightful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful little homely apartment ideal for a family of four. Equipped with everything you need for your stay and a super location right in the middle of Ceret Town. Lovely balcony where you can sit in the mornings with your coffee and croissant bought fresh from the bakery across the road, have a game of cards or just watch the world go by. Ceret itself is a great "little" French town lots of bars and places to eat. Its busy in the day and quiet at night and is handy for the Pyrenees coast and Spain. Great customer service from the owner Philip and manager Liz. Recommend.

The town of Ceret is situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees and yet has easy access to Perpignan, the Mediterranean coast and only 8 kilometers from the Spanish border.

Ceret is surrounded by vineyards and cherry orchards the snow capped mountain Canigou (2800meters) majestically overlooks the area.

There are fabulous walks in the hills and mountains, horse riding,

white water rafting, a beautiful lake close by, a local swimming pool and many other activities and of course the wonderful Mediterranean beaches and coves to explore.
