Jane Mawer purchased this house in 2006

Why Jane Mawer chose Prades

Prades is situated in a beautiful and varied area with access to many activities and places of interest and a wonderful climate. The house is just of the central main square. It is an old stone house, one of the oldest in Prades, and was in need of considerable renovation when bought in 2006. It has retained a unique and homely charm, much appreciated by guests.

What makes this house unique

This house is within a short walking distance of all shops and amenites and the wonderful Tuesday market and is ideally situated for people attending the nearby spa for tratment. It has the added advantage of private parking and a small garage. There is a very large sun terrace (shaded with cannise during the summer) and a shady courtyard. The large open cellar has table tennis and a spare fridge. There is plenty of storeage space for bikes and equipment. The house is looked after by Judy and Chris Bloomfield, who meet guests on arrival and are available if needed.

Great week in the Pyrenees spent walking in the mountains. This place is a delight with everything you need. We were so lucky to book this at short notice. Many thanks for a lovely stay.

There is everything you need for 6 people. We stay during near 3 weeks. We could have eaten outside . We could have a beautiful view on mountains ! And we could have enjoyed all the city center accommodations

Lovely home in Prades

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of May here and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The home is spacious and clean with gorgeous views of the surrounding hills, comfortable bedding, well-equipped kitchen, and large terrace. We arrived by train and never rented a car since everything is near enough to walk. There is a grocery in the village (two minute walk), and the Super U is ten minutes. One can bus to many different villages for one euro or choose one of the surrounding walks in the area. We were not bored after four weeks!

The owner responded promptly to our emails before we arrived and after our departure. It's also easy to communicate with Rachel, who lives nearby, if you have any questions.

We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Perfect base to explore

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic house. Accommodated the 6 of us without any problems.

Plenty of space for our teenagers. So convenient in the centre of town, and watching the fireworks on the church tower from the top balcony was a real bonus. The owner and caretaker were really welcoming, helpful and flexible. Highlights included evening wine on the top patio, day trips to Spain, swimming in the gorge hear Peyrepeteuse and walking from the house to the Siphon. Would definitely consider staying again. Thank you

We didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We don't usually stay in properties near town centres, but we had such a great time and really enjoyed being able to walk to the shops and cafe's. The house was an absolute joy and cycling or walking from the house was also easy. There is so much to do in the area including walking to the local monasteries.

A charming village house with a terrace giving mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights in this spacious and tasteful home. Everywhere was spotlessly prepared and well-stocked and we particularly appreciated having supplies like washing-up liquid and kitchen roll to hand. The house is full of light, the beds really comfortable and the bathrooms modern. At ground floor level is a charming and shady courtyard to sit out in, surrounded by flowering plants and on the upper floor a lovely large terrace has views onto the Pyrenees - perfect for evening sundowners. The location couldn't be better - just off the main square yet very peaceful and with easy parking. The big market is on Tuesday mornings and there's a smaller farmers' market on Saturdays. We spent time exploring the mountains to the north and the Roussillon wine estates and would love to return for the annual Chamber Music Festival. The English owner is very helpful and efficient and her local representative gave us a charming welcome. We have no hesitation in highly recommending this listing.

A lovely 3 story house in the centre of Prades. Quiet location just off the main square. My 3 teenage children loved the layout with a roof terrace and a cellar with table tennis.There is loads of space for bikes or sports equipment .Prades is ideally located to explore the Pyrenees Orientale and the Pays Cathare .There is lots to see and do . Prades has everything you need ,restaurants, boulangeries ,banks ,supermarkets and the whole time you have Mont Canigou to view from the house

The town itself has a Romanesque church, overlooking a shady square, where cafes & restaurants spill onto the pavements and an excellent weekly market sells local produce. Both French & Catalan influences are seen in its culture, language, cuisine & festivals. Ancient churches & abbeys, picturesque villages & fortified towns reflect the area's rich history. There are nature reserves, mountain lakes & many wonderful hiking trails; the more adventurous may climb Mont Canigou (2785m). Activities include riding, mountain biking, climbing, fishing, canyoning & white-water rafting, swimming, skiing (45min), or you can relax in the thermal baths or spa. Good bus and train services.

Ski: There are a number of ski stations within an hour's drive of Prades, each with a range of runs to suit all abilities. Although accesible by train or bus,travel by car is advised. Consider stopping off at the Thermal baths of St Thomas on the way home- wonderful for relaxing tired muscles!
