“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 14, 2007

Everything was great. Excellent hosts, great food the night that we did a Table d'Hote, fabulous views of the Canigou mountain from our room, very comfortable bed and spacious room. The B&B owners clearly work very hard on the house to keep it completely ship-shape.

Prades, France Castell Rose "We loved This Bed and Breakfast"

We stayed at the Castell Rose June 14 & 15, 2007 and absolutely loved the place. From the moment we arrived the owners Evelyne and Alex made us feel right at home and were very friendly without being overbearing. The house itself is simply beautiful and our room was very charming. Our room was nice sized, and had a great bathroom, both of which were very clean and modern while maintaing the original charm of the house which was built in 1947. Alex describes the house as "French Middle Class". I would describe it is a very well made mansion! We also had nice views from our room. The grounds around the house are excellent with great views of the mountains. The pool is nice sized and there are plenty of places to just sit and relax. For those inclined to get a bit of exercise they even have a football field (soccer) in the back of the house!

Prades is a neat little French town with just the right amount of bars and restaurants located around the town square. There are many interesting places to visit around Prades most of which are only a short drive away. The local people are friendly and speak English fairly well.

The breakfasts were great and included fresh fruit some of which was grown right on the property. We met many interesting people at breakfast including a German Film Crew who were shooting a documentary about the area. Evelyne served a nice breakfast and she and Alex were helpful with advice about local attractions and road directions. Overall I cannot say enough about the Castell Rose and the lovely couple who own it. I would recommend the Castell Rose to anyone who is looking for a clean, quiet , beautiful place to stay.

This is one of the best top level B&B we have ever stayed at. Marvellous house/chateau style abode, very quiet with fantastic views of the Pyrenees.
Spacious rooms and big beds and great bathrooms, unfortunately still quite rare in France. Evelyne Waldvogel is the top model for any hostess, charming, warm & welcoming and could not do enough to ensure our stay was pleasant. For instance, when she suspected that we had not booked at a restaurant she called us on the mobile to check and then booked on our behalf to ensure we got the last table at a great restaurant in the village. Class, class, class! But also homely and so comfortable...
