“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

We had an absolutely great stay at Maison 225. The house is really stunning and we had the terrace room which is huge and has a fantastic back room with outdoor terrace and views across the mountains. Great breakfast served in the garden and a couple of nearby restaurants that were recommended were excellent also.

Declan and Sharon were excellent hosts, genuinely friendly and helpful, and we had a great walk with Declan and the dog. All in all fantastic (and free beer!)

We have just arrived home from wonderful Prades after a week in Maison 225.
What a fabulous, relaxing and comfortable place! Our stay was top-notch in every way. Maison 225 is spotless, the location is stunning and the gardens are wonderful.

Sharon and Declan are lovely, friendly hosts. They provided lots of information on local sights and walks and recommended great restaurants to us. Upon discovering that I was a keen cyclist, they introduced me to the local cycling club, Association Cyclotrouriste Pradéenne, and I was able to accompany them on a couple of their training spins. Great, scenic and challenging routes.

We shall return!

What a great find. A beautiful place, with a warm welcome. Beautifully designed and superbly comfortable rooms. Great breakfasts that set you up for the day and a wonderful town with some great restaurants too. I recommend the beautiful suite with a stunning lounge / sun room and peaceful terrace with amazing views over the gardens and up to the mountains beyond. You won't find a better place to lay your head and relax in between exploring this gorgeous part of France.

We spent 7 nights in La Maison 225 (end of April/beginning of May, chambre violet). We felt in love in this town and B&B: wonderful and warm hosts, spotless room, breakfasts to die for, beautiful garden. Prades is nicely situated to make short trips in the region (we recommend Eus- while being there go for tapas lunch to Le Café El Lluert, you will not regret).
When planning a stay in Prades a Tuesday Marché is a must.
Just few days passed when we returned from 225 and we are starting to plan our next trip to Prades and La Maison 225 in early September. And this is the best recommendation.
Thank you Sharon and Declan.

Sharon & Declan are wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Terrace Suire and it was gorgeous. The stained glass was a fantastic touch. Prades is well situated for visits to Villefranche de Conflent, vineyards, castles, & caves. The town offers great restaurants and a beautiful view of the Canigou(mountain). If you are looking for a spot in French Catalonia, this is it. The back yard garden is a nice touch. And Nelly, the resident canine is as sweet as they come!

We opted for the Terrace Suite which had a huge bedroom, separate sitting room (with complimentary mini bar) and private balcony with a fabulous view of the Pyrenees. Sharon gave us a very warm welcome, especially welcome after a long wet motorcycle ride. Breakfast is great - especially the cheese and ham croissants! Sharon was very helpful with local information and restaurant recommendations. Villefranche and the caves are well worth a trip. The Bar Royal in a nearby village is not to be missed for dinner. Prades it self is an unspoiled French town with a few nice restaurants and a .great weekly market
