Further details outdoors

The house is situated next to a small car park at the side. The large wild garden rises up the hillside to the rear of the house and has fantastic panoramic views on the surrounding countryside and mount Canigou. There is nothing beyond the garden until you reach the ruined chatéau that presides over the village.

Rudyard Kipling said of Mount Canigou that it was "a magician among mountains". There are large patio doors leading out from the living area to the garden (wild grassy area) and also to the terrace bringing the outside in.The new terrace is equipped with a wooden dining table and chairs, a barbecue and parasol.

Location description from owner

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, the Pyrenees to the west which offer a wealth of walking and cycling opportunities, not to mention skiing in the winter and Spain to the South!

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 (3km) with a beach area, from which you can swim, sail or wind-surf, or you could just visit the popular open air swimming pools in Prades, Ille sur Tt and Vernet les Bains.

Weather: We benefit from being in the sunniest region of France with more than 300 days of sunshine each year. We enjoy warm, sunny weather from March all the way through to October.

Rodes

Rodes is a very peaceful village typical of the region with the local church, boules court and tennis courts. It also benefits from having a great restaurant and small grocery store.

Rodès has many interesting and beautiful walks, taking in the gorges, Roman aqueduct, swimming in the river, the abandoned village of Ropidera and the hermitage of Domanova. The local history and natural environment have been the main attraction for us over the years!

A recent addition to the village is a centre where you can hire Quad bikes and go trekking around the area. Also, at the entrance to the village, housed in an old chateau is a new Tourist information office.

The nearest main towns are Ille-sur-Tet and Prades which are both just a few kilometres away.

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.

Rodès has a Rando-Jazz each year in August, this is 30 minute walk into the hills to a natural amphiteatre, where you will find an easy listening Jazz band playing all the old favourites (the double bass has to be carried up on foot too!).

Places of Interest: For touring the area, Rodes 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.

* Spain is only 40 minutes from Rodès or you can take a longer trip and visit Andorra, 2 hrs away passing some breathtaking scenery.

* Museum of Modern Art at Ceret (fine example of the works of Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and many others)

* Jeudis in Perpignan in the summer (the streets of Perpignan come alive with many bands and street entertainers every Thursday throughout the summer, creating a real carnival atmosphere

* For the children - a holiday in this area would not be complete without a visit to the large water park Aqualand

* Also for the children the zip-wire adventure park at Marquixanes is a must - take a picnic - it is next to the river and really beautiful.

* Sporting activities are in abundance here, you can experience, water sports, diving, walking, canyonning, horse riding, fishing, golf, cycling to name but few.
