  • Beautiful setting, stunning accommodation

    "My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week during this summer. The huge farmhouse has been really well restored, with incredible vaulted ceilings and traditional southern French architecture, and the surrounding area is absolutely stunning. The apartment was very clean, very attractive and made for a relaxing stay. It is situated very near the town centre of Uzès (2 minute walk), yet the accommodation is very calm and peaceful. It was great to have a large pool as well, as it gets very hot in summer! Can't wait to get back there next year!! Also lots of people speak English in the town, so the language wasn't a problem, but I still got to practice my limited French."

  • Wonderful place to experience the French countryside

    "I stayed at the Commanderie with my family in March, and it was an incredible experience. The medieval architecture was beautiful, and the bedrooms and common areas were spacious and comfortable. The house is great for families—5 bedrooms (2 for kids), gorgeous swimming pool, large, elegant dining table, and a great courtyard for relaxing and enjoying the fresh air. Watching the sunset from the garden was amazing! All the amenities were appreciated, and the market was not a far drive. Aubais is a beautiful medieval town that is not so crowded and has wonderful sights. You can really experience the French countryside here. Overall, a magical place to spend your vacation. Would stay here again!"

  • Would not hesitate returning

    "Our booking was handled efficiently but from the photographs in the advertisement we were concerned that this house might be too elegant for our holiday home. On arrival we discovered it had a very lived-in look. The advertised description and photographs properly reflect the property with period furniture (well used) mixed with modern. We were warmly welcomed by the owner who spent a lot of time explaining the operation of the various appliances in the small but well-equipped kitchen. A welcome package of food and basket of fruit were generously provided. Throughout our stay, the owner was very attentive and responsive without being obtrusive. The master bedroom - at the front of the house, overlooking the boulevard is spacious but very noisy when windows are open (there is no air-conditioning in this room). The shower and wash basin en-suite to this room are very small with insufficient shelving. The bedroom at the rear, overlooking the garden is comfortable and very quiet. This room is fitted with air-conditioning. Both toilets are very small and could be a challenge for larger persons. The house is ideally located in the centre of town, with covered parking on site – a valuable feature, especially on market days. The garden is lush and is set nicely around the pool with ample top-quality furniture and umbrellas – truly peaceful. We were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay. We would not hesitate returning if we visited Carcassonne again."

  • A Return to Paradise

    "Summer is behind us now, but my wife Shelley and I still can't get Ceret and 'Appartement Ciel Bleu' out of our minds. In June we enjoyed our second visit, this time staying for two weeks. The qualities and comforts of the apartment were every bit as perfect as they were before, and it was fun to go on to do more exploring of the town and the surrounding area. We've always loved the South of France, and it's great to find a location that's less trampled by tourists than Provence and the Côte d'Azur. Especially since it's got everything we enjoy right there. As beaches go, for instance, Argelès-sur-Mer couldn't be better. Less than 30 minutes away, it has a wide, uncrowded white-sand municipal beach and dozens of affordable seaside restaurants. Something else that's barely been mentioned... if you're into medieval architecture and history, Ceret is an ideal jumping off point. About 40 minutes to the east is Collioure, with its massive 13th century castle rising up from an enclosed harbor. Even closer is a quiet little city called Elne, which has an impressive 12th through 14th century cathedral and a beautiful Romanesque cloister. One day a driving expedition took us to to Prats-de-Mollo-la-Preste, a small but totally functioning walled town 40 minutes west of Ceret. There we wandered freely (in both senses of the word) through parapets and fortifications, then enjoyed a pastis at sunset under a tree below an ancient turret. On a slightly longer drive, (heading east of Perpignon), we discovered multiple amazing churches and abbeys along the Têt River, and explored the walled city of Villefranche-de-Conflent, which is a UNESCO world heritage site. Two things that have changed since our first visit are worth noting. One is the arrival of "Fred's," a new restaurant in town recommended to us by Elaine and mentioned by another commenter. It has a lovely enclosed patio, the food and service are superb, and the prices are far more reasonable than you'd expect for truly gourmet faire. The other thing that's changed is that a high speed train now runs from Perpignan to Barcelona (and beyond). On our first trip to Ceret we explored a few nearby spots in Spain, but this time we zipped down to Barcelona for an overnight jaunt. What a treat. I guess those are the words I should use to wrap up my thoughts about Elaine and Michael's 'Appartement Ciel Bleu'. What a treat."
