Amelie-les-Bains-Palalda apartment description

GREAT VALUE - TWO BEDROOMS FOR THE SAME PRICE AS A ONE ROOM STUDIO.
Absolute centre ville location of this beautiful historic French spa town. This 1st floor, 2 bedroom, one bathroom apartment has been recently renovated but retains all of its period features and charm such as the polished oak floors, high ceilings, french doors and windows and juliet balconies. A good 2 bedroom holiday apartment is a rare find so close to the atmosphere, energy and buzz of such a vibrant French town. To top it off, it includes access to one private secure car parking space (open air) just around the corner to take away all of those town centre traffic and parking hassles (peace of mind).

RIGHT AT YOUR DOORSTEP: Not one but two boulangeries at the front door, charcuterie, launderette, fromagerie, caves, cafes and bars all within 100m. Amelie les Bains has a daily (7 days) open air fruit & veg market selling locally grown produce and is located in the La Republic Square at the rear of the apartment building.

The town centre offers an abundance of good cafes, bistros and bars including a small casino all just a short walk from the apartment. The town square and central meeting place is 50m away and is always a buzz with activity and energy during the daytime. At night it takes on a more relaxed laid back persona with the cafes and food outlets leisurely catering for the local residents and visitors alike.

Amelie les Bains Palalda is noted for its two historic thermal spas which are in easy walking distance from the apartment (600m). Both spas offer a multitude of services at VERY reasonable rates especialy if you are intending to stay in Amelie for an extended period.

THINGS TO DO / PLACES TO VISIT: The local regional tourist office is located in the same street as the apartment and has a wealth of tourist information about the local area in both French & English.

                          Car: Recommended

                          The apartment is located in the historic French spa town of Amelie les Bains Palalda in the Pyrenees Orientales department of Languedoc-Roussillon. Located in a desirable centre ville location of this vibrant town this apartment soaks up the French atmosphere and village lifestyle beautifully.

                          Although a regular local bus service (1 euro per trip) is available between Amelie and Perpignan, if you are considering using the apartment as 'base' to explore the region a car is an essential item. As an added bonus to complement the centre ville location of the apartment we provide a private reserved car parking space in a locked open air compound just around the corner within easy walking distance to take away all of those traffic and parking hassles. Nice peace of mind!

                          This is a 1st floor spacious 70m2 apartment featuring 2 bedrooms, one bathroom and plenty of room to spread out. Recently renovated it still retains all of it classic French features such as polished oak flooring, high ceilings, french doors and juliet balconies overlooking the town square. It has been thoughtfully decorated and furnished for comfortable use by 4 adults or a small family and including a fully equipped modern kitchen which opens out onto a small 'sun trap' sitting terrace looking out towards the mountains. The abundance of large opening doors and windows makes the apartment feel bright and airy and allows for all of the Vallepsir cooling breezes to flow through during spring and summer.

                          The town of Amelie les Bains is noted for its two historic thermal spas which cater for visitors 11 months of the year. Their menu of services is excellent and are extremely good value for money especially if you are considering staying for an extended period. The town has an active commerce district operating all year round with a good selection of cafes, bars, shops and business services. There is also a 7 day a week fresh fruit and vegetable market located close by, as well as 2 boulangeries, 4 caves, fromageries, charcuteries, tabac newsagent and pharmacies all within 100 metres of the front door. All of your other day to day banking and business needs are also available in the town. Once a month on a Saturday the town holds a sizeable flea market in the main street which is always well attended. In historic Ceret 5km away they also hold a fabulous general market every Saturday and it should not be missed.

                          Another added bonus for 'english speakers' is that the TV system in the apartment is connected to a SKY Digibox allowing access to most free to air British TV channels (approx 15 - 20 in total). Unfortunately we do not have internet access currently available at the unit BUT free wireless internet access is readily available throughout the village in many of the local cafes and restaurants.

                          Amelie les Bains Palalda is a perfect base to explore the Pyrenees Orientales department and beyond. Within a 2 hours driving radius of Amelie you can easily reach as far as Barcelona to the south, Carcassonne and Sete to the north and the Mediterranean Sea to the east (a liesurely 45 minute excursion). Add the expected 300 days of sunshine a year to the equation and where else would you want to enjoy your vacation year after year.

                          Please feel free to contact the owner directly by email if you have any questions about the apartment or Amelie.
