Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Climate: Summer is dry and hot but light breezes create a comfortable atmosphere. Perpignan boasts the highest average daytime summer temperatures in France (28'C). This region is also the sunniest in France with over 300 days of sunshine each year.

History: The region has a dramatic history. There are Roman remains and Cathar castles (like the one at Queribus) which cling to the rocky foothills of the Pyrenees. The medieval town of Carcassone was the strategic defensive sanctuary for the Cathars during the 13th century sieges, an event referred to in the recent best selling novel, The Labyrinth.

Nearby places of Interest: There are numerous fortified towns which are steeped in history and where Catalan culture is very evident. Sites of special interest include the fortress town of Villefranche de Conflent, Vernet-les-Bains with its spas and thermal baths, the abbeys of St Michel-de-Cuxa and St Martin-du-Canigou and the artistic village of Eus.

Don't miss the "Little Yellow Train" which will take you on a spectacular journey up the steep inclines to the high Pyrenees plateau and the mountains beyond. This unique trip, from Villfranche de Conflent to Mont Louis (a stronghold built by Vauban) and the onwards to the mountain resort of Font Romeu, offers magnificent views.

Ther is also a themal spa hotel at Molitch les Bains.

The vibrant town of Prades is only 8 kms away and offers a variety of facilities: banks, supermarkets, excellent restaurants, cafes, cinema and a hospital. There is a colourful street market every Tuesday. Prades also hosts the Pablo Casals Music Festival every August.

“If only for three days this is the perfect place to relax and recuperate!”

Reviewed 28 Jun 2013

Quite simply a little gem for a couple or a small family. Plenty of space in the house with a substantial balcony for sitting and reading, eating and drinking- all with the beautiful view over the mountains. The quiet village of Finestret is a pleasure to explore. Within an easy drive is all manner of French village and country life to experience- almost as if time has stopped still.The market on Tuesdays at Prades is worthwhile to stock up on fruit and veg and gifts to take home as is a mountain drive to the spa & thermal bath at Vernet-Les-BainsBains

“The property is well equipped and in an excellent location.”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2012

Booking the property was easy and we had a lovely welcome on our arrival. Thereafter our two week stay was a delight. Finestret is very peaceful and perfectly situated to sample almost everything the region has to offer. The property is comfortable and well equipped. The needs of our four children (aged 9-15) were easily met and the local swimming lake was within easy reach to burn of any excess energy at the end of the day! I would recommend the property and region - you wont be disappointed.
