Rental Home
Our home is a tall, old town house slotted into the bend of a quiet side street. No two walls are at right angles, so modernising the interior was a challenge. What we haven't done is change the character of the house. What we have done is made it really comfortable, put in three new bathrooms and given you a great base for your holiday. NEW FOR 2020: ***We have converted what, 200 years ago, was the kitchen into a lovely dayroom/bedroom looking on to the private courtyard. It retains original features, like the pink marble sink, and large chimney breast. It has a new en-suite WC. We've also put in a brand-new family bathroom with bath and shower. We've opened up the hall so there is space for luggage, bikes, walking equipment and eberything else that struggles to find a home on holiday.*...Our home is a tall, old town house slotted into the bend of a quiet side street.

It is located between the sandy beaches of the Mediterranean and the peaks of the Pyrenees, and has something to offer visitors in all seasons of the year. It's a great base if you enjoy walking, trekking or riding in the valleys and mountains. We have had some big parties of friends and family here—the house takes 10 easily (12 if you are good friends), but we have also been really comfy as a couple too. There is a large dining room and two very different sitting rooms as well as a private courtyard and roof terrace.More

About the neighborhood
Prades is a pretty French town with a big and colourful market on Tuesday mornings. The Romanesque church has the largest baroque Reredos in France. There are cafes, brasseries and restaurants as well as a good range of shops all around the town square. There are events and festivals throughout the year. Spanish cellist Pablo Casals fled to Prades during the Spanish civil war, stayed and established the festival that now bears his name. The Catalan summer school takes over the town for two weeks in August, and there is dancing in the square every night. Mediterranean beaches are 30 minutes away. There is some great walking, as well as fishing, windsurfing, climbing and other outdoor activities available nearby. In winter the nearest ski resorts are just 45km away. There are pretty towns and villages, castles, abbeys and lots of museums.
Getting around
You can walk to he train station and bus station in five minutes. Buses and trains go to Perpignan and Villefranche, where you can join the Petit Train Jaune. Buses are all €1.
