2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Ceret, Pyrenees-Orientales, Occitanie
Nestled in the foothills of the French Pyrenees, Ceret is the perfect location for a relaxing, cultured stay. Within its winding streets and squares lies 16bis Rue de Vieux Ceret. Once two townhouses, this 16th Century maison de ville has been classically refurbished while retaining the French traditional features like stone coving, wooden ceiling beams and the original terracotta floor tiles. Built as part of the original walled city consisting of the Church and two curved cobblestone streets, 16bis is a perfect location to explore this delightfully shady, yet bustling town.

Begin with the bakery that opens at 7am and is 30 seconds away from the house. From the Easter Procession to the Cherry Festival in June, there is always plenty to see and do in Ceret itself. You will certainly enjoy the fountains, cafe terraces, the Museum of Mo...

One reasonable small supermarket (not Netto), some good and some not so good bakers. Restaurants a...More

Thank you for suggesting the vegetarian restaurant beside the Museum of Modern Art. French towns are quieter in October but there is still lots to see and do. I love the €1 bus fare into Perpignan and surrounds. True, my house has flights of stairs...More

My time at 16bis in Ceret helped me to fall in love with this beautifully quaint and mountainous, yet vibrant little French town. As a young person visiting Ceret, I found there were several things to do and several things to interest my younger sister...More

About the neighborhood
Like Collioure Ceret was a favourite spot with many great modern artists including Picasso and Braque. In the 1910's Ceret was regarded as the 'Capitol of Cubism'. There is a famous Museum of Modern Art with several cubist paintings, a Picasso collection and works by Chagall, Dali, Miro, Matisse and Juan Gris. Many of these artists came to visit the Catalan sculptor Manolo (1872-1945) and the composer Deodat de Severac (1873-1921) who lived here at the time when many famous artists came to Ceret. Aristide Maillol, the sculptor from Banyuls made a war memorial for the town. Many visitors take a daytrip to Figueres to tour the gallery designed by Salvador Dali to display his large paintings. etchings and other artwork.

This large maison de ville is in the heart of Ceret which is 25km from Perpignan Airport or Perpignan train (TGV) + bus station, with a regular daytime bus service to Ceret. The town is a 1.5 hour drive from Gerona Airport, Spain or take the bus from Gerona Airport to Gerona, the bus or train to Perpignan stations, then the €1 bus to Ceret. The stop is 5 minutes walk from my house. Carcassone or Barcelona Airports are 2 hours drive from Ceret. The house is in the heart of Ceret and there are enough nearby activities and regular public transport so a car is not required. If hiring a car from Gerona or Barcelona you will have to pay about €10 per day for bringing it to France. It is better to rent from the Hertz agent in Ceret if necessary.Directions: From the A9 motorway from Perpignan to B... more
