GREAT VALUE - TWO BEDROOMS FOR THE SAME PRICE AS A ONE ROOM STUDIO.
Absolute centre ville location of this beautiful historic French spa town. This 1st floor, 2 bedroom, one bathroom apartment has been recently renovated but retains all of its period features and charm such as the polished oak floors, high ceilings, french doors and windows and juliet balconies. A good 2 bedroom holiday apartment is a rare find so close to the atmosphere, energy and buzz of such a vibrant French town. To top it off, it includes access to one private secure car parking space (open air) just around the corner to take away all of those town centre traffic and parking hassles (peace of mind).
RIGHT AT YOUR DOORSTEP: Not one but two boulangeries at the front door, charcuterie, launderette, fromagerie, caves, cafes and bars all within 100m. Amelie les Bains has a daily (7 days) open air fruit & veg market selling locally grown produce and is located in the La Republic Square at the rear of the apartment building.
The town centre offers an abundance of good cafes, bistros and bars including a small casino all just a short walk from the apartment. The town square and central meeting place is 50m away and is always a buzz with activity and energy during the daytime. At night it takes on a more relaxed laid back persona with the cafes and food outlets leisurely catering for the local residents and visitors alike.
Amelie les Bains Palalda is noted for its two historic thermal spas which are in easy walking distance from the apartment (600m). Both spas offer a multitude of services at VERY reasonable rates especialy if you are intending to stay in Amelie for an extended period.
THINGS TO DO / PLACES TO VISIT: The local regional tourist office is located in the same street as the apartment and has a wealth of tourist information about the local area in both French & English.
