We loved our stay in Leonard's wonderful house. He lives next door, and is unobtrusive, but also extremely helpful - not only did he drop off restaurant recommendations and welcome us with wine and bread, but he'd even lengthened one of the beds for my...More

Idyllic location for families and others. Terrific place with a lovely owner. Plenty to do such as hiking, swimming, rafting and visiting beautiful castles. Altough you need a car to reach the places of interest. Highly recommend!

About the neighborhood
This area benefits from 320+ days of sunshine each year.

The attractive town of Prades is located next to the mountains and rivers. The dramatic scenery surrounding the town is dotted with Cathar castle ruins and is a rambler's delight. Prades red roof-tops and pretty stone buildings have a distinct Catalan feel to them and the main attraction in the town is the church of St-Pierre.

There is strong Catalan feelings in Prades and the town was the first in France to have a Catalan-language Primary school. The town is quite lively during the summer months with traditional Catalan music and dancing taking place in the square during the evenings. The town is also host to the Catalan summer school for two weeks every August. Every Tuesday there is an excellent market.
