Overview

About the property

A House can sleep from 8 to 17, private swimming pool

This beautiful, spacious house, set in magnificent surroundings, offers a group of friends or family the perfect, secluded getaway in Languedoc Roussillon, just 5km to the north-east of the historic Catalan town of Céret. Set at the foot of the Hermitage St Ferreol, in the foothills of the Pyrénées, the house sits high above Céret and enjoys sweeping views down the valley and up over the mountain tops. The location is simply stunning.

The house is perfect for groups of between 10 and 17 people. Five bedrooms on the first floor sleep 10 people (3 doubles and 2 twins). A sofa bed on the first floor landing sleeps 2 more. There is a further double bedroom on the ground floor and a triple on the third floor. There are four full shower rooms with WC and sink: three on the first floor, one on the ground floor. Many of the bedrooms open directly onto terraces and all first floor bedrooms have wonderful views.

The Kitchen is spacious and well-equipped, with everything you’d expect…and a bit more! In addition to the 5-burner stove, oven and microwave, there are two dishwashers and a washing machine and dryer in the adjoining utility room. There is a large dining table in the kitchen, and another in the Living Room. Outside, there is seating for the whole crowd on the patio, whose commanding, south-facing views will hold you spellbound.

The enormous Living Room has space enough for everyone, and has a large flat panel TV, sofas and armchairs aplenty and still has room left over for a large palm tree which reaches towards the conservatory skylight above it! One wall of the Living Room is taken up by windows which enjoy the same view as the patio outside.

Walking down from the house to the pool, you’ll enjoy the mature garden, filled with cypress trees, agave, lavender and rosemary, oleander and a large fig tree. There is a pool house, too, complete with a shower room (with WC and sink), table tennis table, small kitchen and outdoor barbecue…so everything you need for a pool party. There is the possibility of extra sleeping places in the pool house; please enquire when you book.

The house is perfect for a special occasion, such as an engagement party, birthday, anniversary or even a wedding. On the other hand, given the walking trails and winding roads, the house would be a perfect retreat for a group of cyclists (we have a bike rack for 10!) or walkers, who will find the local walks some of the most beautiful – if demanding – they’ve ever had the pleasure of exploring.

The 13th century Ermitage St Ferreol, just a few minutes’ walk away, was built in honour of the local patron saint; it now often plays host to musical events and special services so be sure to check what’s on. A short drive down the mountain will take you to the many wonderful bars and restaurants of Céret, not to mention its famous modern art museum. There are many other local delights to enjoy during your stay; we’ll be happy to give you advice on what to do, see and eat while you’re here!

Perfect house for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Domaine St Ferreol. We were 3 families with a total of 5 teenagers and there was enough space for everyone to be together paying games or eating meals, or find quiet spots to read. The pool provided hours of entertainment, and it was hard to leave at the end of our perfect holiday. We took day trips to the town of Ceret, the beach and even made it to Costa Brava in Spain. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for a big group. We had great fun cooking in the big kitchen and eating either outside enjoying the views or indoors at the big family table.

We definitely recommend staying here and would come back in a heartbeat!

Excellent vacation for the whole family

  • 4 of 5

We were three families with children at the age of 3, 6, 11 and 13 spending a week at Domain St. Ferrol. The possibility of reaching beaches, shopping and historical sights within 30 minutes combined with a house with no neigbours make this location superb.

All the kids preferred staying at the pool rather than the beach. The huge kitchen with dual dishwashers and refigirators made home cooking easy.

A perfect vacation for all of us!!
