Situated in the picturesque town of Céret, famous for its modern art and Catalan culture, this comfortable apartment features a sun soaked balcony and separate large living and dining rooms.
Our apartment is situated in the picturesque town of Céret, south western France. The town is 10 minutes drive from the border to Spain and 20 minutes from the Mediterranean coast, with some beautiful beaches. There's also a fantastic fresh water 2-part lake 5 minutes drive away. The first lake is open to swimmers and pedlos as well as an adventure water park at one end. The second lake is exclusively for the use of water sports, purpose built with a cable skiing facility for water skiing and wake boarding.
The town itself has a long history of modern art, with Picasso & Matisse to name two of many great artists that have graced the town, even calling it home at one time. One of the main attractions of the town is it's modern art museum, featuring works by other greats such as Dali & Soutine.
The apartment is 7 minutes walk to the centre of town, which we think is perfectly placed. Close enough that you can stroll into town to eat at one of the many restaurants, but not so close that you'll be woken by the sound of the market setting up at 5am, or kept up by people enjoying one of the many live bands that play in the towns cafe's. Be sure to visit the towns main square in the old town, place de neuf jets, not just for it's beautiful setting under the plane trees, but for our favourite pizzeria restaurant, the Quattrocento.
Our apartment comprises of 2 good size bedrooms and a sofa bed in the living room. The living room is the biggest of all rooms so is very comfortable for 2 people to sleep in. All the rooms have been renovated and furnished in 2014 so offer high quality and supreme comfort in a perfect part of town.
Our apartment is one of 4 flats in a converted French house. The conversion has been completed to a very high standard. The electrics in the entire building have been fully replaced and the windows have had the glass replaced but still feature the original frames. This was an important aspect to us as we've often found that when holidaying in France as soon as you switch the kettle on all of the electrics in the property trip out, leaving you to cook your family dinner on a single hob!!
Further to this we've had a modern kitchen installed with full amenities, including a washing machine, fridge/freezer, 4 ring electric hob and multi-function oven. The kitchen opens up onto the balcony via double french doors past the breakfast bar.
The separate dining room allows you to sit down and eat dinner together, and whilst the room is usually set up to seat 6 the table can be extended to seat up to 10 people.
Unlike the rest of the flat, which is completed in white floor tiles, the living room has been finished in dark oak floor boards. The colour of the sofa's compliment the dark flooring perfectly and the flat screen TV and 2 reading lamps mean whether you want to relax watching TV or reading a book you're well catered for.

Whilst we enjoy using our flat ourselves, for the duration of your stay you'll have access to the whole flat without interruptions from us. We're of course available should you have any questions or problems but we want you to enjoy your holiday without being interrupted by anyone.
I share a flat in France with my Dad and Brother and between the three of us we've worked hard to fully furnish it, from comfy sofa's to making sure there's a bottle opener and a deck of cards available. We often spend time there ourselves so for us it's important that everything works and there's nothing missing. It wouldn't only ruin your holiday, but ours too!
