Ceret is in a fantastic region for outdoor activities - half an hour from the coast (eg. beautiful Collioure), 1.5 hours from ski-ing in winter at excellent resorts Les Angles and Font Romeu. The region has great hiking, canyoning, cycling and walking (there is a beautiful waterfall with a pool just a 15 minute walk from the house) and there are endless places to explore in the region from unspoilt villages, mountains, beaches, wineries - it is also a 15 minute drive from Spain with many famous towns and historic sites within easy reach (Figueres, Cadeques etc). The mountain drive at the foot of the Pyrenees along the tech river is spectacular. A well known wine growing region, Ceret is also famous for its gorgeous Saturday market, cherries, art galleries and many festivals. There are many wonderful restaurants and cafes. Despite all this Ceret remains relatively undiscovered, popular with art lovers and outdoorsy types rather than mass tourist groups. It is only half an hour from the historic city of Perpignan. There are countless markets in the region.
This bijou little property has been decorated to a high standard. There are two ensuite bedrooms (bathrooms are small) on the ground and first floor. The ground floor has twin 90" beds which can be zipped together and a thick mattress cover ensures that they also convert to a comfortable large double bed. There is a lovely very well equipped modern kitchen and a skylit office on the second floor and a chic sitting room on the 3rd floor which has a great view of the church tower from the railing. There is a wood-fire in the sitting room and a small but attractive terrace with a barbeque. There is an overhead fan as well as a standing fan and an airconditioning unit in the living room in case of extreme heat. There is an overhead fan in the master bedroom. The ground floor bedroom is always cool but there is a standing fan available if necessary. In the kitchen there is a misting fan as well as a standing fan which can also be directed into the office area. It is fully kitted out with all modern amenities. Perfect for a romantic break or for 2 couples/families of up to four.
We do recommend hiring a car if you can, but it is perfectly possible to take a train from Barcelona Airport via the main railway station and directly on to Perpignan. There is a bus from Perpignan railway station to Ceret. Cars can also be hired on a daily basis from Intermarche, not far from the town centre.

Céret has a magnificent Saturday market and is very popular with artists. It boasts a Museum of Modern Art featuring regular exhibitions including works by Picasso, Matisse and Soutine among others.
The picturesque seaside town of Collioure is 40 minutes away and it is only 30 minutes to the nearest beach for a swim or snorkel in the Mediterranean. There are many watersports at Argeles Beach and boat-trips along the coast available daily from Port Argeles where you will find endless fish restaurants selling the catch of the day. The snorkelling is best at Le Racou (the far end near the Criques).
The proximity to Spain means that you get 2 countries for the price of one! Many locals do their weekly shopping in Spain at La Jonquera, where you will also find duty free cigarettes and excellent inexpensive Spanish wine and Cava. The beautiful cities of Girona and Barcelona are an hour and 90 minutes down the A9 autoroute where you can experience the culture of Catalunya and admire the work of Dali and Gaudi.
