Location description from owner

The Languedoc-Roussillon region

The village of Claira is located in the Roussillon region of southern France, on the coastal plain between the foothills of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean beaches. Mont Canigou dominates the coastal skyline and is snow-capped for more than half the year.

Claira is an excellent base for a wide range of activities and sightseeing in the region. Whatever your preference there will be something for you in the area.

If history is your interest be sure to visit some of the ruined "Cathar" castles that perch on the rugged mountain tops to the west of Claira. All can be reached from Claira, and a day trip that takes in the chateaux of Queribus and Peyreperteuse, maybe with a visit to the village of Cucugnan for lunch, is recommended. Puilaurens is another Cathare castle which has dramatic views from its 700m peak and is less than an hour drive from Claira. The approaches to all of the Cathar castles are quite steep so sturdy walking shoes are a good idea.

There are a number of beautiful religious buildings in the region, some in spectacular locations.

The Abbey of Fontfroide is located just inland from the A9 autoroute just short of Narbonne and is well worth a visit with its restored cloisters and chapter house. The partly ruined Abbey de Lagrasse is also nearby.

St Martin de Canigou is an abbey built on a remote and spectacular site on the lower slopes of Mont Canigou. Also in the area are the Prieur de Serrabone and the Abbey of St Michel de Cuxa.

The lovely walled village of Villefranche-de-Confluent, less than an hour from Claira, offers restaurants, craft shops and regional specialities. High above the village is the Fort Liberia offering magnificent views of the village and the surrounding mountains.

Of course Villefranche is also the starting point for the famous little yellow train; which takes a leisurely 63 kilometre narrow gauge railway journey through 19 tunnels and across several spectacular bridges.

Only a few kilometres further inland is the town of Vernet-le-Bains which is an excellent starting point for many mountain walks, from easy and short walks to all day excursions requiring a higher level of fitness and experience.

Claira

The village of Claira has population of around 2500 and is situated between Perpignan and the Mediteranean coast and first appears in the historical record in the 11th century. The village church with its square Catalan style tower dates from the 14th Century.

The village has a range of local services, with two boulangeries, including one right next door to the house. There is also a mini-supermarket, a tabac, a pharmacy, tapas restaurant, and a café bar, as well as basic services such as the post office.

Once booked, we will send more detailed information on the house.

We are close to beaches, La Backers and Torrielles including the marvellous Catalan Beach Restaurant at Torrielles North Beach in the sand dunes.
