The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Llauro is set in one of the most delightful, sunny, and southern areas of France just 10 minutes from the pretty tree-lined medieval town of Ceret ,forever associated with artists (including Picasso), narrow cobbled streets, and its delightful cafe life.

The Pyrenee Orientales has more than 300 days of sunshine annually which naturally lends to it also being one of the most prolific wine producing areas in the world. To the west rises Canigou, the peak sacred to the Catalans where the ancient and still inhabited abbey of St Martin de Canigou clings precariously to the craggy side of the mountain. To the east from the village (thirty minutes) the Mediterrean beaches of Argeles, and Collioure mix the old with the modern in beach side entertainment with restaurants to suit all tastes.

A little to the north of Argeles are the modern resorts of St Cyprien (with its Waterworld Park) and Baccarates while further to the south are the pretty coves and medieval towns of Spain's Costa Brava including Figures, Cadaques, Gerona, Pals, and of course Roses, long home to one of the world 's most renown restaurants, El Bulli. And of course at 20 minutes north through the vines is Perpignan ,a beautiful old Mediterranean city formerly ruled by the Kings of Majorca. A longer excursion will enable you to visit Andorra for its shopping and special tax rates. Andorra also enjoys terrific skiing in the season.

The area is well served by airlines with flights into Perpignan (35 minutes), and Gerona (50 minutes). A little further afield are beautiful Barcelona and the amazing Carcassonne each at approximately two hours, putting their airports (and day-trips) within easy reach.

Llauro

The village of Llauro is not only surrounded by vineyards but contributed to the wine trade in a more specialist and significant way by harvesting the cork bark for bottling the finished product. Harvesting the cork (as well as the grapes and cherries) still contributes to the local economy and in nearby Le Boulou (El Volo, in Catalan) you can visit the cork museum to see how the corks have been produced over the last two hundred years.

The bustling Saturday morning market in Ceret is delightful with something for everyone, even if its only a coffee or a little wine tasting for the more leisurely. Ceret also hosts a grand Boules competition annually as well as the festival of the Sardane, the magic and complex Catalan dance which incurred the wrath of General Franco. A delightful Catalan restaurant is 3 or 4 minutes drive from the house, while the daily ration of baguettes, croissants, and other essentials are available from the village shop.

Less than 5 minutes from Ceret are the pretty leisure lakes at St. Jean Pla de Corts where there is safe bathing, a good little family run restaurant and bar, boating , fishing and an amazing sky adventure trail for older kids (and those of course who think they are kids! ). A little further is Arles sur Tech with its amazing Gorges de la Feu whose canyon (less than 2 metres wide) can be walked on the metal walkway built immediately above the roaring waters .

Visitors to Thuir (10 minutes) a delight on its own, should not miss a trip to the nearby village of Castlenou, one of the top 100 prettiest villages in France. Other pretty hilltop villages in the area include Palada and Eus.

"Actually 2009, but lost link!"

Computer melted down soon after we returned & just found this link on ancient laptop to review ~ sorry owners!!

WOW! We loved this villa! High on the hill with extensive views all around. The actual villa is superb ~ decorated & furnished to a high standard. Comfortable & the perfect place to take my elderly mother, she loved it too!
Very helpful & attentive caretaker who went out of his way to meet our needs. Not really the kind of garden for children, but there is plenty of green space within walking distance. Local shop/post office for very basic needs, so a car is really essential, but Ceret, Thuir & Perpignan are close enough by car. Plenty of hypermarkets shops within 10 mins drive.
The pool is a perfect size for lazy reading with a glass of something on ice & gentle swimming/floating! We were delighted by the nightly gecko population ~ one even joined me for the night in bedroom! Many thanks for allowing us to share your Paradise for a fortnight!
