Guestbook comments from the manager

We've enjoyed a fine week in your house and in the beautiful Ceret. The house was charming and we four oldies have trained our leg muscles well by going up and down the stairs.

Great return visit

  • 5 of 5

We returned after three years to this lovely house in Ceret. The roof terrace was just as we remembered, secluded overlooking the church and rooftops. The house is comfortable and provides enough space for our family of four. Ceret itself is wonderful with weekly Saturday market and shops and cafes. Jay was very helpful and allowed us to get into the house as early as possible and facilitated an early departure at the end of the week. A week was definitely not enough and we plan to return again. Thanks Jay.

Fell in love with Ceret

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a very relaxing week in September. The house is lovely and has everything you need and right in the gorgeous town of Ceret with bars restaurants, art and the fabulous Saturday market.... loved the carnival feel of the Ronde Ceretane 2014. I have the CD of the band to bring back the memory. If I start training now maybe I could enter next year! thankyou Jay for easy communication and a warm welcome. Only regret was we couldn't stay longer.

Wonderful France

  • 4 of 5

We really had a wonderful tim ein Ceret and the lovely house in the middle of the town. Unfortunately the church starts ringing 7 o'clock in the morning, too early for us in our holidays!

Wonderful Ceret townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday. The house was exactly as advertised, right in the heart of the town. We were met by the very friendly Angie who explained everything we needed to know and gave suggestions for parking and local bars and places to visit. The house itself was perfect for me, my husband and two daughters. The best bit was the wonderfully private roof terrace which was great for sunbathing and drinks and meals. The kitchen was very well equipped. It was fantastic weather for the whole two weeks. We loved the town and we went on day trips to Spain, Collioure, Amelie-les-Bains etc as well as visiting the local municipal swimming pool every day- we all want to go back again, best holiday for a long time.

Superbe maison au coeur de Céret

Nous avons passé ici une semaine excellente, dans une maison très confortable, meublée et décorée avec goût. La vue sur l'église est extraordinaire. L'accueil était souriant et chaleureux et les attentions nombreuses. Merci !!

A great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We spent 22 days in this property and plan to return at a similar time in 2012. We have already recommended the house to friends and family wishing to travel to Europe in the near future.

We loved the house,with its cleanliness, modern facilities, great showers, quaint old town location. and being part of the whole town atmosphere.

This house had everything we needed to be totally self sufficient, while we were still able to walk to and enjoy the excellent local bakeries, cafes and restaurants. Ceret provided all the necessary facilities of supermarkets, crafts, stationery and banking, The Saturday markets were a highlight of our weeks, as were the proximity of beautiful, historical hill towns and mountain scenery - all well within a day's drive from the town.

Coming from a busy lifestyle at home it was wonderful to be able to relax in a secure environment where time was no longer relevant. Our holiday was so relaxing that time just flew, but it also has given us a number of places to go to next time.
