Close by is the art-culture of Ceret (Picasso) and Figueres (Dali) in Spain. Falgos golf course is 10 mins away where facilities include health spa, pool, sauna and steam room. The village is unique in that it is within easy reach of the coast, sandy beaches or rocky coves; mountain activities are on the doorstep for the more energetic; you can shop and hang out at the French street cafes of Ceret and Perpignan; enjoy the vibrancy of the Spanish, and sample Catalan cuisine in Macanet De Cabrenys(15mns) Figueres(40mns) Girona (1 hr 20mins) and Barcelona(2hrs); or just enjoy the tranquillity of the Pyrenees with gentle walks in the surrounding landscape.

For those who enjoy yoga or meditation there is a separate meditation room on the ground floor - yoga mats provided.
There are many traditional folk festivals in the village throughout the year - the largest and most popular being The Bear Festival, around the end of february. Well worth the experience! Madness and mayhem for 3 days but always fun!

There is a bus for €1 which will take you down the valley to nearest art town Ceret, or spa town Amelie les Bains or if your would like a city experience, Perpignan (last bus back up the mountain from Perpignan is 15:15). The bus goes directly to the train station in Perpignan.
Please bear in mind the self-contained, lockable apartment is situated on the first floor of a family home. We are fairly easy going people and don't mind music being played but not after midnight. Smoking is permitted on the balcony but please dispose of cigarette butts adequately.
Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to meeting you on your travels.
Melanie ens ha fet sentir a casa seva com si fossim a casa nostra. L'estança es plena de detalls: sabons i cremes per la cura de la pell i el cabell, jocs per entretenir-nos, llibres, películes DVD.... La decoració es original i te un cert aire acollidor anglès (com no podia ser d'una altra manera). La ubicació és molt cèntrica al poble, prop de les principàls botigues i llocs d'interès. Efectivament es tracat d'un apartament molt assolellat (al matí toca el sol a una banda i a la tarda a l'altra). La neteja és bona i no hi hem trobhat a faltar res.
Per acabar, destacar la constant discreció de la Melanie, així com les seves atencions constants per atendre les nostres necessitats, o molts cops podria dir capricis.
we spend an amazing weekend at this cosy apartment! good place to enjoy some time and get lost in the nature.
We really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It was great for our family's needs with 2 little kids. Melanie and John has a really nice assortment of food, juice and wine awaiting our arrival and did everything to make sure we felt welcomed and informed about the area. We definitely recommend the restaurant La Quadra about 30 minutes away. There are quite a few day trips within 2 hours away.
Wonderful location, very nice, cosy and spotless flat with a fantastic view on the Pyrénées Mountains from the big balcony. Lovely hosts. Very good value price relation, highly recommendable!
Melanie and John are nice people and discreet, you forget that you are living with them.
The house is very beautiful, clean and bright. Into the house you will find, games, books, is perfect for the children.
When we arrived, in the kichen we found, milk, coffee, tea, yogurts,etc...
The environment is very nice and there are many activities to do with kids
