From the Owner

My husband was a textile engineer who worked in Prades for a year in the 1970's. When he returned to the UK, we kept in touch with the friends he had made and were invited back to stay for holidays. We loved the area but soon realised that we could not continue to accept their generosity and wanting to continue visiting the area we decided to buy a house. We have transformed and extended the house over many years whilst maintaing the character of this late 19th century property. The first floor terrace and apartment below was added to the house in 2007.

From the Owner

The house exudes a sense of peace and tranquility. We never tire of waking up in the morning to the birdsong. Standing on the 1st floor terrace looking out on to the countryside gives one a feeling of actually being amongst the wildlife. The house also enjoys being close to local amenities and shops so it truly enjoys the best of all worlds.
