About the Owner

We are a professional couple who lived in Ceret for over 10 years. We were forced back to the UK because of our daughters education.

We were actually travelling through the Languedoc region of France and stumbled on the picturesque town of Ceret and brought a house and lived there very happily.

The house itself is really accommodating and in an ideal location. We still use it regularly with our 5 daughters and 6 grandchildren!

We are now based in Bristol and are kept busy with our growing family - another grandchild due this July!

Fantastic cultural stay.

  • 4 of 5

We chose the area before the house, with Ceret as preferred town. We wanted a real French feel but travelling with a 13 year old who is used to pools and splash time on holiday this property offered everything we were looking for and failed to disappoint.

On arrival we found the house to be clean and just as described and presented in the photos. Very spacious inside and out, with the garden, jacuzzi and pool completely enclosed by fruit trees so you can enjoy the privacy and relax in very pleasant surroundings. The house itself had everything we needed and more.

The town and area has plenty to offer but best of all was just to stumble across some local traditional goings on. You don't need a car but to get the best of the area it is advised.

Communication with the owner was easy and informative as with the couple who look after the house and met us on arrival.

Overall we had a fantastic time in the house, town and area.

From the Owner

We feel that this is an ideal holiday home as all the rooms are so spacious and airy and with the bar area leading out onto the entertainment area it is perfect for large families. As the property is located on the outskirts of the village (10 minutes walk), you can enjoy the village life without all the hustle and bustle, The house has views of the mountains and is nestled at the foot of the mountains and near the beach, an all round perfect location, perfect weather for that dream holiday.

Special interest holidays:

Céret is a popular but relaxed Catalan town with a colourful history of legends, traditions, music and art. Full of leafy cafes, once frequented by Picasso, it boasts a colourful market on Saturday mornings; an impressive modern art gallery, with works by Picasso, Matisse, Miro, and Chagal; and ancient legends surrounding the 'Pont du Diable' and the fountain in the 'Place de neuf jets'. Céret is part of the premier cherry growing area in France and is known for its cherry festival, held at the end of May/early June. This is followed by the Feria 'Céret de Toros' in early July in which bulls are run through the streets by skilled horsemen followed by street music. A festival celebrating the complex, circular 'Sardane' dance is held mid July. The surrounding countryside is of exceptional beauty, ranging from the 'Pic du Canigou', sacred mountain of the Catalans, down the ancient, forested foothills of the Pyrenees, across the vineyard and orchard-covered plains of Roussillon.


The Roussillon coastline boasts kilometre after kilometre of golden beaches, rocky hideaways, azure lagoons.... a day at the beach is so much more than a bucket and spade experience, surrounded by the surrounding scenery of the Albères mountains with the sacred Canigou rising majestic in the distance. The Côte Vermeille (vermilion coast) stretches from Argelès-sur-Mer to Cerbère via Collioure, Port Vendres and Banyuls-sur-Mer.


Perpignan Airport + train station 25 mins. Gerona airport 45 mins. Carcassonne airport 60 mins. Beziers airport 60 mins. Toulouse airport 2 hours. Barcelona airport 2 hours.


Market town of Ceret with loads to do and see is 5 - 10 minutes walk. Perpignan is 20 mins drive away. Spain is about 15 mins away in the car, with Barcelona about 2 hours. The TGV should be complete, making trips to Barcelona much quicker. Beaches from around 20 mins drive.

Further Details:

There is a weekly Saturday street market in Ceret, this is extended to include Tuesday nights in the summer and has the most wonderful atmosphere. The property is just around the corner from the various bakeries, butchers, newsagent, banks etc. Everything you need is within walking distance. Activities in the area include hiking, mountain biking, golf, windsurfing, jet skiing, scuba diving tennis, horse riding, fishing and there is a municipal swimming pool in the town. There is also plenty for the less energetic- there are lots of quaint little shops to explore, you may feel like a visit to the beauty shop or spend a while in the Thermal Baths in nearby Le Boulou. There is a bus service available from the town and it only costs 1 euro to travel around within the area - a definite bargain!

From the Owner

The property has the benefit of being in walking distance to the lively village of Ceret with loads of bars, restaurants and shops and yet also has the butcher, baker, pharmacy and restaurant within 200 metres. The house is really spacious and has a great entertainment area where you can relax by the pool or sit and watch TV in the bar area. It really is the perfect holiday house. We have only ever had positive responses from people that have stayed there..
