The property is located within a 20 minute walk of the centre of Ceret on quiet roads, although there is a supermarket nearby within easy walking distance. The property is ideal for those with children as it is a good distance from main roads and although the river is very close indeed it is not easily accessible for smaller children. The pool is very private and all measures have been taken to ensure the safety of small children. There is a spacious lounging area around the pool with sun loungers provided, plus a separate shaded dining area. The beach is some 30 minutes away by car and should you prefer to visit the mountains, they are a very short drive inland.

Karl, my husband and I are a working family with a young son. We are both professional people so we have too little time to enjoy ourselves, spending too much of our time at work. Eventually the plan is to retire to the South of France but unfortunately this is some way away for now. Until that time, we have to enjoy the precious time we have to spare. The house in France is therefore our escape, our sanctuary!
Maria purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Maria chose Reynès
My husband and I purchased the property in 2002 following a short holiday in the area in June of that year. We liked the area so much we decided immediately we would love to have a second home there and purchased the house in Ceret. We have gradually improved and upgraded the property to the point where we feel very much at home there. The house itself is about 300m from the main road from Ceret to Arles sur Tech and eventually Spain, but at the same time lies in a secluded spot with the river Tech running alongside, hence it has the best of all worlds. We love the mixture of greenery around the area but also the climate more akin to Spain than the northern half of Europe. The long sandy beaches are also no more than 30 minutes away.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is now more than just that to us, it is a real 'home from home' with all the facilities and comforts of home, plus lots of sunshine!!! The shops are not too far away, in fact the small LIDL supermarket is very close by. Ceret has many other more individual shops and the large centre of Perpignan is no more than 30 minutes away by car. The property is a great compromise between the countryside and lively towns. The house is also very safe for young children, being quite secluded. The pool is as safe as we can possibly make it, something very important to us particularly having a young child ourselves. We sincerely hope our guests feel the same way about the area and the house, hopefully the feedback we have received confirms that they do.

Holiday in Ceret
Ideal accommodation. Really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful views and excellent location. We found it within walking distance to most amenities. The accommodation was comfortable and well looked after and we would definitely book again as the family loved it!
Special interest holidays: I am myself into cycling and can recommend some great cycling routes around the area both on and off road depending upon your preference. Coast/Beach: 30 mins by car to the beaches at Argeles, Banyuls or Coulliore. Travel: Perpignan airport is approx 30 mins away and is served by both Ryanair (Stansted) and Flybe (Southampton). Girona is just 40 mins by car and is served by a number of low cost airlines including Ryanair. Barcelona is approx 1.5 hours away by car and is served by Easyjet and BA. Regular flights are also available from Manchester and Liverpool, plus a route opened recently from London Southend Airport to Barcelona. Distances: Ceret 2 mins by car, 20 mins on foot. Amelie Les Bains 10 mins by car. Perpignan 20 mins by car. 1 min walk to the nearby supermarket. Numerous local restuarants, the nearest is no more than 300m from the villa. Further Details: The town of Ceret is renowned for its proliferation of artists and was once the home of Pablo Picasso, the town therefore has a real 'artistic feel'. In the town there is a modern art museum and if you are prepared to travel into the mountains you will find the studios of many artists and sculptors. the town is a real magnet for artisans from across the world and many unique artworks/ ceramics/ glassworks/ items of furniture are available locally. If you prefer a more action packed holiday an adventure park is located close to Amlie Les Bains where you can experience white water rafting, climbing, abseiling etc. If you are interested in Scuba Diving this is available at Coulliore. For those who enjoy cycling there are few better place in Europe, having the benefit of the famous Pyrenees (very close to some of the more challenging Tour De France routes) on the doorstep plus some flat riding towards the sea. Fabulous routes are available both on and off road and cycle hire is available locally for those unable or unwilling to take a bike on holiday. For those interested in a more sedate holiday, exploring history, (specifically medieval history), this is the region of the ancient 'Cathars' and their legacy can be seen in many places locally. The legacy of the Knights Templar can be found all across this most historic of regions. The area has something for everybody, from beaches to mountains, from lounging by the pool to challenging uphill bike rides and white water rafting, or history and art!
