Location description from manager

The Occitanie region

Languedoc-Roussillon is perfectly positioned between the Mediterranean to the east where the beautiful sandy beaches provide long days by the sea, and the Pyrenees to the west, which offer a wealth of walking and cycling opportunities, not to mention skiing in the winter!

This region is a delight; the Conflent valley provides lush green scenery, with Mount Canigou dominating the skyline and the Pyrenees visible in the distance. You can be swimming in the sea in the morning, and hiking in the mountains in the afternoon. There are even thermal hot springs, so if you would like to combine the two activities we can suggest a hike AND a swim in the mountains! It really does offer you everything!

Weather: We benefit from being in the sunniest region of France (300 days of sunshine each year), and enjoy warm, sunny weather from March all the way through to October. November and December are cooler but still with sunshine. January, February and March are great skiing months (50 minute drive to the ski resorts).

Clara

CLARA

Clara is a very peaceful, typical village of the region with the local church, boules court and tennis court. It also benefits from having one of the best restaurants in the region, right in the heart of the village, which is definitely worth a visit. The river runs through the village and just to the rear of the villa and provides a wonderful setting off point for a gentle walk, or a more strenuous hike.

The nearest main town, just a few kilometres away, is Prades. A thriving market town, Prades has many great shops and restaurants as well as a lively market on both Tuesday and Saturday mornings, where you can buy local produce such as the peaches and cherries that are grown in abundance here, fresh vegetables, wonderful cheeses…. and of course the excellent wine!

There are events and festivals throughout the year. Spanish cellist Pablo Casals fled to Prades during the Spanish civil war, stayed and established the festival that now bears his name. The Catalan summer school takes over the town for two weeks in August, and there is dancing in the square every night during this period.

Places of Interest: For touring the area, Clara offers an excellent base. Just a few of the sites of interest within easy driving distance are listed below:

* Villefranche de Conflent, a fine example of a medieval walled town

* Little Yellow Train, catch this train from Villefranche and enjoy the specatular mountain views right into the Pyrenees.

* Grottes de Canalettes, magnificent renowned caves with an incredible light and sound show

* St Martin du Canigou, 9th century abbey perched impressively high on the hillside with fantastic scenery and walks.

* St Michel de Cuxa, 6th century abbey that hosts concerts during the Pablo Casals festival but is also open for viewing most of the year.

* St Thomas les Bains, outstanding natural thermal hot springs in wonderful outdoor mountain setting.

* There are a number of Cathar castles to visit in the area, take a day out of your holiday to learn the fascinating history of the persecution of the Cathars.

* Skiing in winter - we are less than 1 hour from some of the Pyrenees mountain ski resorts.

* Animal parks at Casteill and Les Angles and a Safari park in Sigean

* Aqualand , Waterpark in St Cyprien - a fun day out for all the family, with water slides, wave pools and much more.

* Wine tasting and tours, visit one of dozens of vineyards in the area and taste some of the varied distinctive wines.

* Carcassonne, the fairytale medieval walled town.

* Spain, a day out to the beaches of the Costa Brava, Barcelona, Girona or the Dali museum in Figueras.

* The unique light in the region enticed many famous artists such as Picasso and Matisse to make it their home, vist the Art museum in Ceret and dozens of galleries throughout the department.

* If you are looking for more adventurous activities can we suggest, mountaineering, skiing, horse riding, canyonning, kayaking, diving, kite and wind surfing, sailing, walking, cycling and much much more.
