About our home

Our home is a detached two story chalet style property nestled beneath Mont Canigou overlooking the beautiful hillside village of Vernet les Bains. The house has four double bedrooms, in addition to a pull out couch in the mezzanine. The kitchen is fully equiped to enable you to take advantage of the wonderful french produce. We have a large sun deck over looking the mountain which is in sun from first thing in the morning most of the day. You can either eat there or on the terrace in the garden close to the free standing brick built BBQ. The garden is fully enclosed and the gates all lock which means children can play with total security. There is a stereo and English cable TV as well as a game system/TV with childrens videos in the Mezzanine area. The living room has a wood burning stove. There is a full sized chest freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer in the garage under the house.

Where is it?


Our home is located in a beautiful mountain spa town with a wonderful micro climate which gives it around 300 days sunshine annually. The house is fully equipped even though it is our second home and is perfectly situated within 45 minutes of the Mediteranean and the ski slopes of the Pyrenees. The village itself has many wonderful walks close by as well as having three outdoor pools within about a 3 minute walk of the house. There are also tennis courts and an equestrian centre in the village and numerous bars and restaurants around the village square. The village itself is an arboretum and an acknowledged world class walking area and centre for "green tourism". There is an outdoor hot springs within a 25 minute drive, canyons and gorges to explore in addition to caves, abbeys and grottoes. The village itself enjoys a thrice weekly market of fresh fruits, vegetabes, wines and local cheeses. Close by, Prades is a large market town which also has several weekly markets and "brocante" sales. Our neighbouring village is the beautiful fortified town of Villefranche de Conflent. There is truly as much here or as little as you want to do.... Did I mention that Spain is only 40 minutes drive away, so you can enjoy two countries in one trip!!!!
