The Languedoc-Roussillon region
A beautiful region with perfect climate and a lot of places to visit.
Among them: Villefranche de Conflent - A medieval town with complete fortified walls. It is also the starting point for a ride on Yellow Train. You can ride in open or closed top carriages admiring the breathtaking view.
Abbeys at St Martin de Canigou & St Michel de Cuxa.
The 1.3 km long path to St Michel starts almost from the gate of the house. By the way, St Michel de Cuxa it that very place where the heroine finally kills Dracula in the bestseller by E. Kostova “The Historian”.
Tautavel Museum – the site of the oldest human in Europe.
3 natural reserves within 10 min drive are ideal for walkers, a still larger one in Nyer preserving wild life of the Pyrenees as it is can be reached in 15 min .
Animal Parks - Casteil near Vernet-les-Bains (10 min drive) and at Les Angles where wild species are kept in semi - liberty and will keep the whole family busy for half a day. Why not take a picnic.
The Perfume Tower in Mosset can be reached in 10 min, the Solar Oven at Mont-Louis in 30 min by car.
The sights of Perpignan with its Palace of the Kings of Majorca, Collioure with its Royal Palace overlooking one of the most beautiful ports in France, Ceret with its Modern Arts museum are well worth visiting.
The road from Perpignan goes by endless peaches, apricot and cherry orchards . The trees will start blossoming in March, when the mountain slopes are still covered with snow. Why not to come in March to combine the pleasures?
There are plenty of things to do all year round. The skiing season starts in December and often lasts through into April. The main resorts are at Font Romeu - Pyrenees 2000 (40 pistes, 52 km in total) and Les Angles (32 pistes, 40 km in total). But you can enjoy skiing also at Col de Jau which is called the smallest skiing resort in Europe and is located in 15 km from Prades( 2 downhill ski pistes, 1 ski lift, also cross-country ski, snowshoe walking).

"Great getaway place, highly recommendable!"
We stayed in this place in early January and were really impressed. We travel a lot, are a very picky couple from Madrid, and it is very difficult to impress us – but the hosts of this place did! All the tiny details are arranged very thoughtfully and respectfully, from the appliances to the bedsheets. Everything was very clean, and the very atmosphere of the house was friendly and hospitable. Needless to say that the location of the place is spectacular: the tranquil air of antiquity surrounds Prades and its neighborhoods, and it is so lovely to sit on the balcony sipping coffee or smoking a cigar, to feel engulfed by the history of that place, to detach yourself from the everyday vanity, and to think about the eternal… Brilliant place for those who seeks for a getaway place with lots to see nearby, highly recommendable! Muchas gracias a los amos de esta magnifica casa!

"Excellent time in the best place!"
We were 6 - 3 adults with 3 kids (from 6 to11) and we were all happy: kids were playing ping pong - and that was really great, we were enjoying alfresco eating and drinking and long walks. It was warm and sunny most of the time. And we have found quite decent eating places nearby. We would recommend Tautavel museum to families with kids. Will do our best to come again in summer.

We stayed 1 week in September. The house was situated on a hillside with a nice view. The house was on the outskirts of Prades, so it was a bit to the center. We just used the upper part of the house. The kitchen was nice, but the pans was a disaster and as usual the knifes wasn't what we wanted to have. There was no dining table in the kitchen so you had to eat in the living room. That's not any problem if the table is adapted for dinners. The table was far too high to be a dining table. There should be a table on the balcony but it was thrown in the garden. The garden was very messy and it appeared that the owner simply ignored it.

"A great house"
Our group consisted of 2 families - 4 parents and 5 kids from 15 - 6. Although we are very experienced travelers, this was the 1st time we'd rented a house and we were very impressed. Booking with our agent was an easy, agreeable process. The house is very centrally located in Prades, minutes from the centre of a well-equipped town with excellent summer attractions of its own and central to many other regional attractions. Very clean with all the mod-cons. With 2 families splitting the bill, it was superb value. We've promoted it through our social networks - highly recommended.
