Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Languedoc-Roussillon is perfectly location to get away, with more than 320 days of sunshine a year positioned between the Mediterranean to the east with beautiful sandy beaches, 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 of the Pyrenees provides lush green scenery, with Mont Canigou dominating the skyline. 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 !

If you are into extreme sports they can all be done from here, with some of the worlds greatest climbing, canyoning, caving and much more near by suitable for all, from beginner to the most experienced guides can be arranged if you wish.

There is a lake in the local town of Vinca (15 minutes drive), with beaches, from which you can swim, sail or wind-surf, or you could just visit the popular open air swimming pools in Prades or Vernet les Bains.

Weather: We benefit from being in the sunniest region of France, 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 (35 minute drive to the ski resorts).

Fuilla

Fuilla is a very peaceful, typical village of the region. It benefits from being located so close to the Canigou mountain giving walkers and cyclists a great starting point for some fantastic tours. So why not give it a go and walk to Pic du Canigou!

The house is a short drive (4 km) from the recently nominated UNESCO world heritage site of Villefranche-de-Conflent. Fuilla also benefits from a small cafe just a short walk away. There is also a grocery store in the nearby village of Sahorre, which is easy walk or bike ride (available on site), so it’s easy to forget about the car for a few days, relax and unwind. It also has easy access to the main road between Perpignan and Andorra which allows the surrounding area to be explored very easily.

The nearest main town, just a few kilometres away, is Prades. A thriving market town, with 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.

Just a few of the MUST SEE within easy driving (or walking) distance are listed below:

*Rockpools at Sahorre (3km) - Fantastic place for just relaxing and taking a dip in the cool, clear mountain water !

*Villefranche de Conflent, a fine example of a medieval walled town and recently nominated as a UNESCO world heritage site. (4km)

* Little Yellow Train, catch this train from Villefranche-de-Conflent and enjoy the specatular mountain views right into the Pyrenees. (4 km)

* Grottes de Canalettes,
magnificent renowned caves with an incredible light and sound show (4 km)

* St Martin du Canigou, 9th century abbey perched impressively high on the hillside with fantastic scenery and walks. (6 km)

* Casteill animal park (9 Km) - great fro the children.

* 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. (10 km)

* St Thomas les Bains, outstanding natural thermal hot springs in wonderful outdoor mountain setting. (15 km)

“Tranquil & scenic.”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2011

The gite was really well refurbished with the original stone walls exposed. It was very comfortable, all the necessary equipment was provided & there are lovely views of the mountains. It has a lovely patio area with table, chairs & loungers. This was a very pleasant place for breakfast outside & a BBQ in the evening. The gite is situated in a very scenic area within easy reach of many varied walks & really pretty French villages. It is very easy to find & just 50 minutes from Perpignon airport. Penny & Mike(the owners) are a lovely couple who are very pleasant and helpful- suggesting walks, restaurants etc. The fresh milk, home made jam etc provided for our arrival was very welcome. We felt we were part of real, rural France & thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
