Charm and simplicity in a setting where greenery and old stones marry with happiness. For 4 to 5 people, 2 bedrooms, kitchen opening onto a small terrace adorned with a climbing vine, sitting area and mezzanine offering additional sleeping.

The space
New on the market, available year round, including june, july, august and september

Castelnou is a catalan medieval village dating from the 11th century, nestled in the mountains of the Roussillon region. It is located 180 km from Barcelona, 17 km from Perpignan and only 30 minutes from the nearest beaches.

The "La Parra" lodge is set in an ideal location. Its residents profit from a peaceful setting away from the animation of the village and may choose to hike a number of trails that start nearby.

The arbor entrance of the lodge is typical of traditional catalan interiors while the lodge itself occupies the top floor of a large house where its family resides in the summer. At other times the renters are free to use the large shaded terrasse adjoining the main house.
Inside you will find a living room corner, a fully equipped kitchen bordered by a small veranda where you can have your meals under the arbor, two bedrooms (one double, the other with a simple bed and a 120 bed), a water cabinet with a shower and a toilet space. An extra 120 bed on the mezzanine makes room for extra guests.

Guest access
It is advisable to travel by car during your stay since there is no market in the village (although there are numerous excellent restaurants and a local market on tuesdays held next to the church). Markets and other shops can be found 5 km from Castelnou in the village of THUIR. There you will also find a charming market held on Saturdays.

Castelnou is a fortified village and therefore it remains pedestrian. Free parking is available a few meters from the entrance of the village.

Other things to note
The house has 3 terraces of different levels. The largest, adjoining the lower part of the house, is reserved for the family only when it stays there. The second, shared, for the linen ropes, and that of the entrance of the gîte, smaller, reserved for the tenants.

Location

Castelnou, Languedoc-Roussillon, France

Castelnou is a small village with a crazy charm! It is therefore very visited.
But the location of our house, on the south side of the village, allows us to have shaded, quiet terraces and therefore a very appreciable privacy, while being just a step away from the "Hostal", good restaurant whose terrace offers a superb view on the Mallorca Rock.
You have a few steps away, the restaurant "d'Ici et D'ailleurs". Or if you prefer just one delicious dish, you can go at the Coin Catalan or at the Figuera at the bottom of the village, or taste tapas "at Mémé"
And if you forgot to buy bread in Thuir (there is no bakery in Castelnou), you can buy every days nice fresh bread from Nicole at the entrance of the village.

J'habite à Montréal, mais je reste très attachée à la maison familiale dans laquelle se trouve le gîte de la « Parra », qui signifie treille en catalan. Ce village médiéval, Castelnou, sauvé de la ruine par l'intérêt qu'il a suscité auprès d'artistes catalans qui s'y sont installés, dont mon père et ma mère, a repris vie au début des années 60. Fêtes, son et lumière, soirées théâtrales, cinéma en plein air sur la place, expositions de peintures au château et dans le village, ferronnerie d'art, lui confèrent une réputation de village d'artistes et ont coloré les étés de mon enfance.

During your stay
I live in Canada, but I stay in the lower part of our family home every spring and summer. And I am always happy when I have the opportunity to get to know the people with whom I had the pleasure of exchanging emails.
