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 2019: We have converted the original kitchen into a modern, downstairs bedroom looking on to the private courtyard. It retains some of it's original features, like the pink marble sink, and chimney breast, and has a new en-suite WC. The house is in Prades, an attractive small market town in the south west of France.

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 terrace.More

The owner has renovated a old house near the centre of the town. It provides an interesting and rewarding experience of life in a small French/Catalan town. Convenient to shops and away from the tourist hordes in the readily accessible Vermillion Coast and the Pyrenees....More

I have been holidaying in Prades for years now, and a single visit will make it abundantly clear why! Prades' amazing year-round sunshine (320+ days a year!) and untouristy location guarantee relaxation, and its vibrant weekly markets bring the delicious food and produce, much of...More

This house was the perfect base for the three weeks my husband and I spent exploring the Pyrenees by car and by foot. Prades is a small, friendly market town ringed by Cathar castles. In August the apricots growing there were perfectly ripe (as were...More

Great place to unwind and relax - with a fantastic rooftop patio to watch the swallows dive while enjoying a glass in the evening. Simple with a rustic feel - bare feet and lazy afternoons kind of place. Provincial France with a Mediterranean feel, great...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 town...
