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, 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 pool in Prades.

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 (45 minute drive to the ski resorts).

Rodes

Rodes is a very peaceful, typical village of the region with the local church, boules court and tennis courts. It also benefits from having a great restaurant (1 km) and small grocery store.

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.

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.

* Wine tasting throughout the area

* Animal park in Casteil, it is like a safari park on foot, lovely walk with lions, bears, wolves, yaks etc. Children can feed the goats and pigs.

“Excelente”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2011

Una de las mejores casas en las que hemos estado. Tiene el encanto de ser una casa antigua, integrada en la bonita localidad de Rodès, pero que está perfectamente arreglada, de lo que resulta un espacio muy agradable y cómodo. La vista del Canigó desde la terraza es fantástica. Está muy bien ubicada, cerca de la montaña, de la playa y de ciudades históricas. Muy recomendable.
