Overview

About the property

3 bedroomed house with garden and terrace

The house is situated in the heart of Amelie les Bains, right on the banks of the river Tech, within easy walking distance of restaurants, bars and shops.

Amelie les Bains enjoys 300 days of sunshine per annum in this unspoilt region of the South of France. It's the perfect centre from which to explore the area, ranging from majestic mountains to miles of sandy beaches. The whole area is steeped in history.

The house is very comfortable and spacious, comprising sitting room, dining room and kitchen on the ground floor; three bedrooms, bathroom and WC on the first floor, with a basement 'cave'. There is a lovely balcony in the main bedroom and outside there is a garden and a patio for relaxing, eating the local produce, or having a glass of local wine.

The Languedoc-Roussillon: The Languedoc-Roussillon region is one of the most beautiful and diverse areas in all of France. Illuminated by that magnificent Mediterranean light, you will find sandy beaches stretching for miles, with a backdrop of the Pyrenees mountains. Some of the most beautiful and historic towns and castles in France are to be found in this area of the Cathars.

The city of Perpignan is a small and modern city with plenty of history, with its 13th century castle of the Kings of Majorca. The city's railway station was declared 'the centre of the earth' by Salvador Dali.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure is excellent with inexpensive train services and good motorways for travel to Spain or anywhere in France. Currently, a new TGV rail link is being constructed between Barcelona and Perpignan and is due to open in 2014.

Some local areas of interest:: Le Petit Train Jaune (the little yellow train) - Villefranche de Conflent up into the mountains

Villefranche de Conflent - a medieval walled town

Les Orgues - extraordinary natural landscape on Prades road.

Grottes de Canalettes - fantastic caves with a light & sound show

The Dali Museum - Figueres (Spain)

The Museum of Modern Art - Ceret

Amelie les Bains is a year round holiday destination thanks to the long hot summers and the close proximity of the ski stations such as Les Angles and Font Romeu. The air is very pure here in this Spa town which boasts two spa centres, one of which has a restored Roman swimming pool.

The centre of the town is a colourful, cheerful space with pavement cafes, bars and shops. There is a fresh fruit and veg market every morning and a weekly market selling everything from clothes to local produce (Thursdays). There is an excellent municipal swimming pool in the town.

Near by can be found (10 mins by car) the charming market town of Ceret, famous for its cherries. There is a lovely lake with water sports and swimming about 15 mins away.

The Mediterranean beaches are only about a 35 minutes drive from Amelie as is Perpignan City or the Spanish Border.
