Our lovely ‘Maison de village’ is in the beautiful mountain village of Clara situated close to the thriving market town of Prades in the South-West of France. The village is nestled in the foothills of Mount Canigou, and benefits from incredible views across the lush Conflent valley and beyond.
Ideally situated for walking and hiking, you will find a selection of maps and guide books showing many walks of varying difficulty. We also supply walking sticks, binoculars and a few of books on the local bird life.
The village has facilities for Table tennis and Boules (2 sets of Boules and table tennis bats supplied in the house).
If you want to try your hand at fishing we also have a fishing rod and lines (please bring your own hooks, floats etc).
Recently renovated to a very high standard, our house is extremely well appointed and offers accommodation on three levels with a double bedroom and bathroom on the first level, spacious bright open plan living accommodation on the middle floor with balconies overlooking the river valley, and two further double bedrooms with access to a terrace on the third level. There is also a covered courtyard barbecue area, which offers a beautiful shady place to relax, chat, eat and listen to the river flowing by.
Perfect for families, groups of friends or couples, our home would be a cosy retreat for a couple or a great place to get together as a group. Please note linen and towels are extra and payable on site. £7.50 per person, if required.
For our Autumn and Winter guests, the house also offers heating in all rooms. This makes it ideal for those wishing to use the house to tour the ski areas. (major ski resorts are a 45 minute drive away).
Access to the area is simple and cheap, using the low-cost carriers such as Ryanair. There are daily flights into Perpignan airport which is a 40 minute drive from Clara.
A close alternative airport is Girona (Ryanair) which offers access from many UK, Irish and German airports.
Guests have private use of the entire house, the rooftop terrace and the covered courtyard with BBQ.

Experiencia muy positiva. El apartamento muy nuevo
maison de village très sympatique et très bien équipée et aménagée (et le chauffage fonctionne en hiver !). Terrasse spatieuse et magnifiques vues sur le Canigou et les collines autour. Attention cependant à l'escalier intérieur pentu et glissant.
Le boulanger/café à l'entrée du village est ouvert 7/7 et très sympa.....Nous avons craqué pour le beau village d'Eus (à 3 km) et conseillons les randos au depart d'Eus vers les autres villages - sentiers super bien balisés.
Nous reviendrons ! et essaierons d'autres saisons dans les PO
L'appartement de Julie est très bien; propre, bien équipé, avec un bon chauffage pour l'hiver et une jolie terrasse pour l'été. Parking à côté de la maison. Endroit idéal pour randonneurs. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour.
We were studying in Prades for a week. The villa was a beautiful, a really comfortable and relaxing place to stay. The view over Prades and the mountains was amazing.
It seems like an excellent base for exploring the area - central Prades is 10 minutes' walk. Although we were working hard, we also managed to visit the abbey St-Michel-de-Cuixa (a couple of miles away) and the village of Eus (4-5 miles), both stunning.
It was mid-November, so the weather ended up a little cold and wet by the end of the week, but it started off really sunny - we had some of our meals out on the balcony. If the weather had stayed warm, we would have used the garden and barbecue.
The villa was very well-equipped. It was really convenient to just turn up (late at night), park outside, and have everything ready for us with no fuss.
Julie was really helpful, organised, and communicative - as a new Airbnb customer it was a pleasure.
We loved Julie's apartment. It was very lovely as well as comfortable. The location was perfect for exploring France. Julie and her husband were perfect hosts.
Nous avons passé un agréable dans ce grand gîte ! Nous avons pu profiter de la piscine malgrès l'eau un peu fraiche ( environ 22° ) mais surtout profiter du soleil et des transat avec une merveilleuse vue sur les montagnes !
Nous en avons profité pour visiter perpignan ( 45 min env ) et prades, mais aussi pour effectuer des randonnées aux alentours.
Le gîte est très agréable avec un grand salon, grande salle à manger pour pouvoir se réunir à plusieurs et profiter de notre séjour !
Le gîte est très bien entretenu ainsi que le jardin, et les lits sont très confortables !
What a great place!
and very friendly host
We will return
Lovely appartament for sure. great experience! 100% recommendable.
