Why this location?
We have enjoyed many holidays in various regions of France. We decided to buy in the Languedoc for the 300 days of sunshine; close proximity to both the coast and skiiing, and the beautiful scenery of the Pyranees. L'Esperia is at the edge of town so it is easy to wander down to get your croissant in the morning, and you have access to all the facilities you might need, including restaurants and a market. The town is well know for its spas. There are two, one of which offers many beauty treatments. The town of Amelie les Bains is close to Ceret (less than 10 minutes by car) with its art museum and bustling town centre. During the summer there are often fesitvals taking place.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
The views from L'Esperia are always spectacular. Breakfast on the terrace in the morning sun is such a treat. There are many activities on offer in the local area. For example swimming in the lakes, kayaking, tubing, caving, mountain bikiing, horse riding or simply relaxing by the pool, enjoying the sunshine. There are a number of golf clubs nearby. The beaches of France and spain are approximately half hours drive away. Further afeild are Barcelona and Carcassone, both worthy of a visit. Also Figueres home to the famous Dali museum In short Amelie les Bains is a great base for exploring the area, with good access to the motorway system for longer day trips.
