Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a line to say how much we enjoyed our stay in Ceret. Your house was well equiped, spacious and very comfortable, and well positioned in the town.

we loved Ceret and the beachs around Collioure and eventually the weather turned out to be very warm indeed.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This property is a little oasis which oozes character, charm, elegance, and comfort. It is beautifully appointed and maintained, yet very functional and well equipped. It has everything you might need – and even what you forgot to bring ! The house is quaint and very central, yet nicely distanced from main roads or traffic. The layout was ideal for our needs which included elderly with reduced mobility. It would be equally suitable for families with children of any age, or adults/couples wanting to experience the cultural ambiance of the beautiful town of Ceret. There is a very comprehensive up-to-date information manual which is very useful. There are many scenic drives within a short distance making it an excellent base for touring the region. With the chique décor and ambiance it is also just a space to relax and unwind. It’s not just lovely it’s fabulous!

The booking experience was excellent throughout with great customer care and attention to detail. Directions, maps, key collection etc was straight forward. The description and photographs were accurate, (but even better in reality), the location was perfect - just a stroll to the cafes, shops, market, hills, restaurants, and oh the bakery….. The facilities were excellent. There was nothing we needed that the house didn’t have. The presentation on arrival was superb. We felt like the first occupants and at home immediately. We made use of lots of the facilities including the musical instruments and bicycles too.

Overall it was beyond our expectations, a haven of peace & tranquility, and in our opinion a home away from home. We will revisit, and will recommend to friends without hesitation.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The house was everything we had hoped for and more....it felt like we were staying in someone's home rather than a holiday house. It's in a wonderful position on a quiet road, yet only a few minutes walk from the town centre.
Ceret is beautiful, lovely shops and plenty of restaurants, we would recommend Al Catala just off the main street.
There's plenty to do in the area, Collioure and Villefranche are both worth a visit as of course is Carcassone. As for beaches you're spoilt for choice, we preferred the North beach at Argeles sur Mer, there are no facilities but importantly for us it was quiet even in the middle of August.
Susan has been extremely helpful, and we would happily return to the house again.

Lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5
A lovely house with a spacious lounge, the shutters were good for keeping the kids asleep. The boulangerie down the road was amazing and there was easy access to shops and restaurants. Also a good location for day trips - Collioure and Castelnou among others. The owner was very friendly and helpful, answering queries, and dealing with contracts and deposits in a way that made you feel she wanted you to have a good holiday. I would recommend it to a friend.

excellent property

  • 5 of 5
We found the house even better than we had expected from the photos - very spacious and attractive, well equipped and comfortable. We loved having the two terraces.

Another bonus is the quiet location: a few minutes' walk from the central shops and restaurants yet walking in the other direction up the narrow road you can be above the town with good views, also in minutes.

Ceret is a charming little town with a remarkable modern art musuem and nice cafes and restaurants. Lots of great places in the Pyrenees to visit by car, though the buses are also good - and unusually cheap. The drive down the coast road into Spain is unmissable.

Family holidays in Ceret

  • 4 of 5
Booked for two weeks, we spent a wonderful time in Ceret. Booking and organization was very easy to handle. The owner of the house answers promptly, and comprehensive to all our questions.
The house is central situated (5 walking minutes to the avenue of plane trees) and approximately 10 minutes to the place de neuf jets). There is ample parking space near the house. The place is ideal for short trips to the pyrenees and also the Mediterranean sea. But also Ceret provides a lot of sights in the city like the museum of modern art and local markets.
The accommodation is in good state, well equipped in modern style that we liked very much. A choice of books magazines and DVD is offered. The house was well cleaned while we arrived. Maria the housekeeper was very kind. Also the (english speaking) neighborhood was very helpful and kind.
By having two bathrooms, balcony and terrace the accommodation is ideal for also two families. While reaching temperatures of around 35 degrees Celsius outside it was still comfortable in the house and by oping the windows in the night there was a pleasant draught to sleep well. The mattress in the bedroom was very comfortable.
I can recommend the property implicit and would book the house again anytime.

What a GREAT place!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have wished for more when booking our stay in Ceret. Not only was the house very well equipped and comfortable, it was also ideally located only a few minutes walk from the heart of this lovely town. The town has a friendly atmosphere and given we had that 'home from home' base, we quite got used to the French way of life!
Ceret is also a great base for exploring the region, whether you like walking, hitting the beach, are a bit of a foodie or simply want to relax and enjoy the French lifestyle, we found this really was a super place for all of the above!
We'd love to go back to stay in the house and visit Ceret again, and have already recommended to lots of our friends!

This sunny village house is within 200 metres of the centre of Ceret, with its many restaurants, galleries and local shops. Ceret has an outdoor swimming pool, petanque and tennis courts and is a 10 minute drive from a swimming/leisure lake and is within 30 minute drive of the beaches. The area is ideal for hiking and water sports such as diving and windsurfing which are available on the coast. Ceret hosts many traditional Catalan festivals including the Cherry Festival in May. Picasso, Braque and other major artists spent time in the town and their work can be seen in the Modern Art Gallery. The pretty coastal town of Collioure with its winding streets, galleries and harbour made famous by artists Henri Matisse and Andre Derain is well worth a visit as is the fishing harbour of Port Vendres with its thriving fish market. Ceret is only 15 km from the Spanish boarder so it is quite possible to take a day trip to the beaches on the Costa Brava. The Salvador Dali Museum at Figueres is a 30 minute drive and Dali's house in Cadaques is about 1 hr 30 mins away. It takes about 2.5 hours to drive to Barcelona. The long awaited 50 minute high speed TGV link between Perpignan and Barcelona is expected to open in July 2013.
