"My husband and I just returned from spending two whole weeks at this very delightful house. The pictures are accurate but in fact, the house is better than the pictures. It is quiet and private and very well and tastefully furnished. It is, also, very well equipped - having come from five weeks on the road, we were not keen to continue eating all our meals in restaurants so we ended up cooking some dinners as well as preparing most of our lunches and breakfasts. The kitchen is not only nice to look at but very well equipped for cooking full meals.
We had our adult daughter join us for a long weekend from London and the bedroom/bathroom set up is ideal for families or two couples with plenty of space, large closets and good sized bathrooms as well. An extra bonus is the fact there is a clothes washer and dryer. A lovely surprise was that the linens and towels were changed half way through our stay.
The village is very quiet except for the Tuesday market which is a wonderful source of fresh food of all kinds. The location also works well for day visits to pretty much all major Langedouc and Roussilon sites including Carcassonne, Narbonne, Perpignan, and a whole variety of little villages, abbeys, castle ruins, beach towns etc. as well, of course, as the Canal du Mid.
There are a couple of very decent restaurants within easy walking distance (the Bel Minervois and O'Portail) and we found an excellent restaurant in a small town just two km's away in Homps.
Our only difficulty is that the garage, while very handy to have, has a rather awkward entry to it made that much more awkward by the way in which cars nearby park. We usually parked on the street and walked in but we had made the mistake of renting a largish car (not large by North American standards) so rent as small a car as you can get by with and this will not be a problem.
The owner was easy to contact and very responsive though in fact we had no difficulties or problems at all. There is a land line for use and good strong WIFI, both very much appreciated.
We have rented houses and townhouses in a variety of jurisdictions over the past 10 years or so and this one was certainly one of the more delightful and well equipped houses."

"What more can be said that has not been mentioned previously? It is all true! This superbly located apartment is well equipped, offers a great view, fosters relaxation at night and is a gateway to various activities during the day (museum visits, hiking on the trails surrounding the village (great view of the Canigou mountain), day trips to Minerve (Cathar village), the Mediterranean shore (Collioures), to Spain (Girona, Figueres, Cadaques). Parking (free parking - a big plus in France) is very easy to find, either in the square or within a very short distance. Céret has many good restaurants. We especially liked our evening meal in the private courtyard of Les Percherons! Jay and her team gave us a nice welcome. We definitely recommend Ciel bleu apartment and would not hesitate to return."
