Again, fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We came here again after a year and it is even better than last year! Our two little kids ran back and forth between the pool and the playground and we were able to relax as they entertained themselves all day! We came with our two dogs this time who also enjoyed the sunshine and exploring the garden that has become even more beautiful. There are improvements in the house and it is very comfortable and clean. The place is paradise....thanks!

Top vakantie gehad in les trois Cypres

  • 5 of 5

We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad. Prades is een leuk dorpje en les trois Cypres is een ideale plek om helemaal te ontspannen en even weg te zijn uit de dagelijkse hectiek. De tuin met al haar planten en bloemen is prachtig en ook de directe omgeving is mooi. Echt authentiek Frankrijk met kleine weggetjes, wijngaarden en een rivier vlakbij. We hebben gezwommen in de rivier, maar de kinderen hebben vooral genoten van het verwarmde zwembad.

We komen zeker een keer terug!

Great place to relax and have fun with your family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great place with our two little kids for two weeks over the summer and really enjoyed ourselves. The houses and garden are beautiful and there is a lot to do in the surrounding area (hiking, boating, swimming in the river, going to the beach, exploring the local markets) as well as just staying on the property and enjoying the pool, playground and garden. The place is clean and well maintained and the owner is friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

Een top vakantieverblijf met veel mogelijkheden voor jong en oud.

  • 5 of 5

Met volle teugen hebben we genoten van dit prachtige vakantieverblijf, het heerlijke verwarmde zwembad, de mooie tuin, het prachtige uitzicht, de rust, de privacy en de schitterende omgeving. De huizen waren gezellig, super-schoon, met alles er op en er aan, werkelijk aan alles was gedacht. Heel aangenaam vonden we het dat de bedden al waren opgemaakt, toen we aankwamen. Dat we 's morgens verse croissantjes en brood te voet vlakbij in het dorp konden kopen was ook een plus. Het vertoeven op dit domaine was zo prettig en veelomvattend dat we maar weinig uitstapjes hebben gemaakt naar grote steden. Montpellier stond op het programma, maar we zijn niet verder gekomen dan Béziers, een interessante stad, waar je ook gezellig kunt winkelen. In de directe omgeving hebben we wel heerlijk gewandeld en gefietst en natuurlijk geroeid in een kayak op de rivier de Orb. Het is een waar paradijsje voor deze sporten.

Onze vakantie was zo geslaagd dat we weer voor volgend jaar geboekt hebben. We willen nog veel meer doen en zien. ''Les Trois Cyprès'' vinden we een aanrader voor volwassenen en kinderen van alle leeftijden.

Een onvergetelijke vakantie in april.

  • 5 of 5

We hebben intens genoten van onze vakantie in april. De kinderen waren niet uit het zwembad te slaan. Ze zwommen en speelden het liefste de hele dag in en om het zwembad met als tussendoortje de schommels in het speeltuintje. We hebben van hun genoten vanuit onze ligstoelen rond het zwembad. Het water was opgewarmd tot 27 graden en dat in april! Het weer was schitterend, elke dag zag je de zon op komen, die zorgde voor een temperatuur van boven de 20 gr. overdag. 's Avonds en 's morgens was het soms fris, maar we hebben ook wel 's nachts buiten gezeten en van de prachtige sterrenhemel genoten. De barbecue ging elke dag aan. We hebben steeds buiten gegeten (en geleefd). We vonden het bijzonder prettig dat er zo veel zitjes zijn om het huis en in de grote tuin en dat je op verschillende plekken kunt eten aan een grote tafel of je even terug kunt trekken. Dat hebben we in andere vakantiehuizen nog niet meegemaakt. Daar troffen we buiten één eettafel aan en één zitje. Ook in huis was alles wat je nodig hebt aanwezig en zelfs meer dan dat, bv een pizzasnijder, crèmebrulée schaaltjes, fondueset, champagne glazen naast de wijnglazen. Het was heel verzorgd en schoon. Heel fijn waren de opgemaakte bedden bij aankomst. Het is een plek om tot rust te komen en van het schitterende uitzicht te genieten. In de mooie omgeving kun je prachtige wandelingen en fietstochten maken. Het Parc Regional du Haut Languedoc is een aanrader. Ook het kayakken op de Orb vonden we heel leuk, leuker en spannender dan op de Dordogne.

We hebben veel informatie, toegespitst op onze interesses en behoeftes , en medewerking gekregen van de eigenaar.

We hebben een geweldige vakantie gehad in en kunnen niets bedenken wat daar afbreuk aan heeft gedaan, zelfs geen regendruppel. Tip : restaurants tevoren wel even bellen / reserveren, want sommige zijn niet altijd open in april.

Top, Les trois cyprès

  • 5 of 5

Les trois cyprès.

Soms overdrijft men wat teveel.

Maar deze keer in geen geval.

Soms schieten woorden tekort en moet men zijn heil vinden in superlatieven.

Natuurlijk is de natuur daar wonderschoon met haar fabuleuze wijngaarden,

de intens blauwe luchten, de cipressen die het uitzicht segmenteren op Cebenna, Madame qui se couche, die alle dagen waakt over het gebied, ook als ze slaapt.

Prachtige bergen, georges, Canal du Midi, abdijen, steden en dorpen waarvan je het bestaan alleen vermoedt in je dromen.

En dat alles omgeven met geschiedenis, archeologie, folklore, kunst... verweven met een prachtig landschap.

Dit is het uitgangspunt van het prachtige domein Les trois cyprès. in Prades sur Vernazobres. Een huis (huizen) om van te gaan houden.

Twee mooie huizen om je tot rust en inkeer te brengen en met als hart een subliem zwembad, dat de intense kleuren van de tuin en de omgeving extra intensiveren.

Dat is onze ervaring met Les trois cyprès.

Bij aankomst voelde het meteen goed.

Het was alsof we in het huis van onze ouders kwamen. De kleuren van het huis, de inrichting, de prachtige tuin gaven ons een warm welkom.

Hopelijk is een ding zeker; we komen terug goede Froukje.

Mede door het enthousiaste contact en door het overbrengen van zoveel goede informatie over het gebied voelden we ons heel erg thuis.

Veel dank,

A la prochaine

Around Prades is ideal for nature lovers and sports. Also on culture - historical and culinary this region has to offer. For children there is plenty to do.

Rowing in kayak or canoe on the beautiful river Orb (4 km.), Either in calm or whitewater is an enjoyable challenge for young and old. There are admiring spectacular (international) kayak competitions Réals (6 km) .To.

It is the ideal area for walking, cycling and mountain biking There are trails that begin in Prades.

A day Mediterranean with its wide sandy beaches (30 km), shopping in Beziers (20 km) and Narbonne (30 km), trips to cultural and historical sights in Beziers, Narbonne, Perpignan, Albi (Toulouse Lautrec) Castres (Goya) Pezenas (Molière), Carcassonne, Minerve, Cap d'Agde, Sète, Montpellier, a tour of the ruins of the Cathars, the Roman Oppidum d'Inserune, the 9 locks in a row at Beziers, the Jardin Mediterranean in Roquebrun, a cruise on the Canal du Midi include the many attractions.

The bezichtigingvan the restored medieval fortress

Carcassonne captivates young and old. From around the world come to this tourist attraction. On the way to Carcassonne to visit well worth Minerve, a very very small town with a sad history from the time of the Cathars.

The picturesque villages around each have something special which is worth a visit too.

The grape harvest in September is interesting to witness.

Tastings at wine chateaux is a must in this largest wine region in France.

The cozy markets (Sunday and Thursday in St. Chinian, 4 km), have much to offer delicious local produce such as honey, jams, herbs, olives, fruits and vegetables, fresh fish, cheese.

On the terraces in St. Chinian Cessenon overlooking an ancient church t. M. V. the cheerful, friendly French and other tourists can drink a glass (or more) of wine from the region, which at checkout but turns out to cost 1 euro.

The prices in the restaurants surprising.

+/- 11 euros for a tasty three-course meal, 1/4 liter of wine included, and served for a menu at Michelin-level pay, not to believe, from 25 euros.

A walk through the Gorges d'Heric and climbing the Carroux are unforgettable experiences.

Car trips through the beautiful Parc du Haut Languedoc with its mountains, hills, valleys, gorges, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, picturesque villages should you decide not to act.

The Parc is located next door. It offers stunning views of the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean.

Extensive information and literature about this fascinating region can be found in my holiday.

CHILDREN (and playful adults) love to walk to the river Vernazobre (5 min.) And there to catch fish, build dikes, fossils and pretty stones to search and discover more.

The interesting mini farm in Cessenon (5 km) to visit them down more than once. Cessenon awaits them a big playground on the banks of the river Or and mini golf ..

The Orb offers great swimming and play areas and rocky areas where you can dive from. A trip to the Mediterranean with its beautiful, wide sandy beaches (30 km) is for the children and you of course a wonderful experience. Valras-Plage and the quieter Serignan-Plage are the closest.

Carcassonne is also for the youth so fascinating that it often prevents them later for a piece about school.
