The Languedoc-Roussillon region
This region is both beautiful and varied.
The mountains are spectacular and accessible to all - hikers, bikers and skiers of any level.
The coast boasts sandy beaches northwards, and rocky coastline with delightful bays towards the Spanish coast. Coastal towns entice with their fishing ports and restaurants.
Those interested in culture, history or language will find much to offer: Cathar castles, the old Spanish border north of Perpignan at Salses le Chateau, and Catalan festivals throughout the area. Abbeys (St Martin du Canigou, St Michel de Cuxa, Serrabonne priory), Vauban walled towns (Villefranche, Mont Louis), the Prades Pablo Casals festival, Perpignan and Carcassonne.
There are vineyards everywhere, look and see where the wine you bought is from - you can probably visit the vineyard - this is the largest wine-producing area of France.
...and if you tire of France, go to Andorra or Barcelona for the day!
Vernet-les-Bains is a great place for a holiday whatever you enjoy doing, and whether you all want to do everything together or separately:
* From the door you can hike, mountain-bike, play tennis, and swim (outdoor public pool open summer months, indoor pool open all year round).
* A short drive away there's trout fishing and caving, rafting and adventure parks
* Taking it easy? Discover the arboretum, pamper yourself at the thermal baths, or stroll up to the Belvedere. Take the "little yellow train" into the mountains and in the evening enjoy the frequent concerts on the village square or visit the Casino.

"An activity holiday for all"
We planned a week in early summer walking holiday in the Eastern Pyrenees, using Vernet les Bains as our centre and staying in the Rue de Chateau. We had studied maps of the area and identified some activities for the days off from our walks. In the event we our downtime was filled enjoying the local food and drink and we didn't find enough time to explore the many other facilities for adults and families in the area. Rue du Chateau is in the centre of the old part of Vernet les Bains. The house is light and airy, most of the accommodation is on one level, one floor above street, and the windows can be safely left open to keep the house cool. There are sweeping views from the rooms on this level The walled courtyard on the lowest level is a safe place for small children to play while their parents enjoy a drink in the shade while older children can make friends in the nearby squares. The house is very well stocked with books, maps and guides of the area for planning the next day's adventures, and for the keen holiday e-readers the 3G signal is excellent.

"comfortable house in the foothills of the Pyrenees"
We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable house in the old part of the village, close to a lively market square and all the local shops - bakers, butchers and cafes. The kitchen was well equipped and well stocked with basic supplies. There were plenty of books, general fiction and guidebooks/maps. Lovely swimming in the outdoor pool In Vernet with a backdrop of mountains.(note- males have to wear trunks, shorts not allowed). We like walking and did lots of walks from the door including St Martin de Canigou, and Le Canigou itself- 12 hours there and back starting out at 7.00.

"spacious house in an excellent location"
Ideally situated at the top of the town, with stunning views over Vernet and the Cady valley, the house is generously sized, well equipped and very well provisioned. For younger or older visitors who don't want to travel too far, walks and activities begin just outside the front door, including summer concerts and bands in the town square, a large swimming pool nearby (open again when we visited) and lots of park areas to just sit and enjoy the views. The owners supply extensive information files and maps not only for the town itself, but also for travel a little further afield. The Nyer and Caranca gorges (especially the latter, perhaps for the more intrepid walker with a good head for heights) are well worth a visit and the Little Yellow Train, departing from nearby Villefranche de Conflent (a pretty and interesting little town in its own right), is worth every penny, particularly if you can secure seats in the open carriages. There is so much of interest and so many wonderful experiences to be gained in this area - this advertisement and others' reviews reflect the wealth of possibilities. Do go and enjoy the peaceful and commodious accommodation, the best restaurant in the area just a stone's throw away, the welcoming locals in the square's bars/ cafes. Oh, and there's a well supplied supermarket within walking distance for your everyday needs, markets in the town centre three times a week for those special treats plus locally grown fruit and vegetables. What more could you need?

"Home from home"
We (5 : 2 adults and three children/teens) spent a fantastic week here in June 2010. We walked to Cascade Des Anglais from the house, carrying our lunch with us. We went to Villefranche de Conflent, Fort Liberia (kids enjoyed counting steps back down to village) , Solar oven at Mont Luis was definitely worth a trip. Did all of the caves in and around Villefranche, plus some gorge walking. We also went to Abbaye Saint-Martin du Canigou. Our french language was tested here and failed- Lovely location, nice walk, nice views. The house is in a lovely location at the top of the village with a beautiful view across the valley. We often had breakfast looking out from here. There is a fantastic restaurant within 30m of the house. The house is on two levels with all of the living space on the top level. At the bottom level there is an additional bedroom plus laundry / garage. The younger kids would often play games in this garage space. Everything you would need is in the kitchen. The owners were very generous in leaving supplies of all of the basics. There is a plentiful supply of maps and guides for the serious walker in the living room. The only negative for us was that we could not find a public swimming pool for the kids. There is one in the village but it was closed for renovation. Prades has a pool which is partially opened to the public but wasn't open to us on the day that we tried. But overall the house plus location is a gem. It was very good value for money. I would like to go back in winter for some skiing in the locality. Since our trip I have discovered two interesting books by Rosemary Bailey who has written about this area of the Pyrenees. Worth reading if you want to understand the life and lives of the people in this region over the last 60 years.

"Little gem in Vernet"
Stayed in this special house whilst on a walking holiday in April.Wow! What views,what a little gem. More food in the kichen cupboards than at home,books galore,more information on the area than any tourist office.Great walks from the door. Lovely sitting room with windows that are always open to drink in the atmosphere. April is very quiet - no queues,no parking problems - but very quiet at night. Summer must be stunning! Be prepared to walk up some steep slopes from the town,but that's what you're there for. Good restaurant close by but be prepared to book. Bedrooms fine, and although the downstairs on-suite room is like being in the garage who cares it all adds to the charm of this little gem in a wonderful area.
