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.

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).

About Dave Davies

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

Why Dave Davies chose Serdinya

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.

You'lll love it!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Here is a small selection of places of interest within easy reach of our house.

15 minutes drive along the N116 is the town of Prades, with its excellent cafes and restaurants serving traditional French Cusine. Dine Al fresco whilst soaking up the sun and enjoying the relaxed French way of life.

There is a weekly open air market in the square where you can purchase typical French local produce. A wide variety of shops and banks can be found in the town including cycle hire.

Take a visit to the Unesco World Heritage site Villefranche-de-Conflent (5 mins drive). Roam the narrow streets of this famous walled village with its quaint shops and restuarants. Travel up to Fort Libre upon the mountain, in a 4x4 and walk back down via the underground tunnel which leads back to Villefranche.

There is a little yellow train (Petit Train Jaune) which can be seen from our terrace and garden. It travels in both Summer and Winter from Villefranche-de-Conflent to Bourg-Madame, near Andorra, stopping at various places of interest including the ski resort of Font Romeu.

A 20 minute drive, nestled at the foot of the Canagou is the Spa town of Vernet les Bain. This area is the sacred mountain of the Catalans which reaches a height of 2785 metres.
