The Languedoc-Roussillon 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!

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

Weather: This area benefits from being in the sunniest region of France, and enjoys 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 (45 mins drive to the ski resorts).

The Pyrenees Orientales has much to offer art lovers; the world famous Pablo Casals music festival is held in and around Prades (only 15 minutes drive away) during the summer and is attended by world famous musicians. Perpignan hosts “Jazzebre” an international jazz festival in October. This area has also been the home to many famous artists including Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and surrealist artist Salvador Dali who declared Perpignan railway station “the centre of the universe”. You can see examples of their work on show in Ceret, Perpignan and the picturesque seaside resort of Collioure.


Ria Sirach is a charming Catalan village perched on a steep hillside and situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees. It is easily recognisable by the Catalan flag which flies at the site of the ancient abbey atop the village. It is an ideal centre for holidaymakers all year round as the village enjoys a wonderful climate, with an average of 300 days of sunshine each year. It is set in the sheltered Conflent valley in the foothills of Mount Canigou, which rises to a height of 2,785 meters. Rudyard Kipling praised Canigou as “a magician among mountains”. The river Têt has cut a ravine at the foot of the village which is situated at an altitude of 400m.

If you want to chill out and forget about the car, you can join the locals in the restaurant/bar or collect your baguettes/croissants from the boulangerie and if you don't want the stress of supermarket shopping, you can stock up at the village épicerie.

Ria Sirach is situated within 5 minutes of the local market town of Prades where you will find everything from supermarkets to a large, busy traditional square with bars and restaurants. Prades hosts a bustling market on Tuesday mornings and a smaller farmers market every Saturday morning.

For music lovers, Prades boasts the internationally famous Pablo Casals music festivals with concerts staged in various venues including the impressive Baroque church at the center of the town (which itself boasts the largest baroque altar in France).

The walks in the area are many, varied and well marked, stroll around the village or take a hike following some of the most beautiful trails in France. Visit the Tourist information for free leaflets on local walks.

For touring the area Ria Sirach is ideally situated and offers an excellent base. Just a few sites of interest within easy driving distance are listed below:

* Villefranche de Conflent, a fine example of a medieval walled town (5 minutes drive from Ria).

* Little Yellow Train, catch this train from Villefranche and enjoy the spectacular mountain views right into the Pyrenees towards the Spanish border.

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

*Animal Park, Casteil, lovely day out for the children, lots of animals to see and feed, in a beautiful mountain park, the walk around the park is 2-3 km.

* 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. Both this abbey and St Martin are considered to be the finest architecture of their period in France.

"A real taste of the Pyrenees"

A lovely apartment, clean and spacious. Location wise perfect for exploring the Pyrenees with all amenities close by. Although on the main road, the apartment is set back enough to forget it is there and the restaurant next door did fantastic food. Really enjoyed our stay there and Julie has been very efficient and helpful throughout. Thanks for a great holiday :)

"Comfy, calm and relaxing"

We came to stay in this apartment at the beginning of the month. The apartment has easy access and a car park just meters away. It is on the first floor of a tastefully renovated village house with a modern kitchen, a cosy bedroom and a beautiful terrace. We were able to visit the hot springs in Saint Thomas and took a day trip to the ski resorts. Although the weather didn't allow swimming or sunbathing, we went to the sea and enjoyed the traditional seaside dish "moules et frites". Julie was an excellent host and recommended the hot springs for a relaxing day out. I would happily recommend this apartment to any couple or family wanting a holiday home in the region.

Hello, thank you for such a lovely review, we are pleased you found the apartment comfortable. Don't forget we offer a 10% discount to returning guests. See you again soon, Julie and Jonathan.
