Overview

About the property

House in Serdinya, Nr. Prades, Pyrenees Orientales, Languedoc-Roussillon, France - Peaceful Location Near Small Village

This historic water mill was built in 1711 and is by the side of the River Tet. There is terraced garden at the front and back with a path down to the River.

There is a barbecue and pizza/bread oven outside the front door with a dinning area. In the back garden there is a raised swimming pool (5m in diameter) and a large area with hammocks and chairs between the fruit trees. Le Petit Train Jaune tourist train passes over the garden (make sure to wave) with nearby stations a kilometer away. The mill itself has a open plan kitchen/living room/dinning room with a large woodburning stove (and plenty of chopped wood under the railway arch) and 3 double bedrooms (two with double bed and one with twin singles). There is a large bathroom with shower/bath, bidet and washing machine.

The historic village of Villefranche-de-Conflent is 5 km from the mill. There are plenty of lovely mountain walks and lots of opportunities for bird watching, cycling, fishing and lots more.The sky resorts of Les Angles and Font Romeu are under an hour away by car as are the beaches on the mediterranean.

About Dave Davies

We are a couple from North London and bought the mill seven years ago.

Why Dave Davies chose Conflent

We love the Tet valley and this historic mill by the River Tet gave us a peaceful haven for our holidays. Serdinya is a small, friendly mountain village with lovely walks and close to the historic walled town on Villefranche-de-Conflent, the market town of Prades and the spa town of Amélie-les-Bains. It is a short drive from the ski resorts but also only an hour from the Mediterranean.

What makes this house unique

Lovely walks in the Pyrenees, culture at Prades (annual Pablo Casals Festival), the annual fete in Serdinya.

The real deal if you want authentic France but with all the comforts.

A totally unique property in a lovely location with helpful but unobtrusive owners who care about your holiday.

Imagine relaxing in an orchard with own pool counting butterflies with gin and tonic at arms length.

Alternatively, drive up into hills to Mon Louis (Vauban fortress, church..) or down a few km to Villefranche, Prades or Ille sur Tet. Local markets, cave tours, hiking,walking cycling-so much to do but you can do absolutely nothing too!

Perpignan about 1 hour away with other airports like Girona also within easy reach. Ideal for lovers of France/the French. Suits first time renters or those more experienced in renting in France too.
