Overview

About the property

La Farga de Dalt is a converted forge located in the foothills of the Mediterranean Pyrenees on the edge of the village of St Laurent de Cerdans. The main forge was built in 1873 but parts of the property date back to medieval times. The property is stream fronted and accessed via a bridge. The entire site borders are fenced to limit the wanderings of our younger guests. The property is divided into four separate two floor villa/apartments with large kitchen/dining rooms, shower/bathrooms on each floor and two large double bedrooms. All have their own separate entrances and individual terrace areas. All have access to our large outdoor covered terrace with summer kitchen and BBQ. At one end of the property we have an enclosed pool and play area. Our guests enjoy the 12m pool and can make use of the surrounding grounds to relax and have fun. There is free wifi throughout the property.

For those visiting in the cooler months there are both wood burning stoves and oil fired central heating in all living areas.

St Laurent de Cerdans is located in the Vallespir, the most southerly and sunny valley in France.

The village is a leisurely ten minute stroll from La Farga. It is a picturesque French village with many Catalan features situated in the midst of the Pyrenees Chestnut Forests. It was built on the local timber and weaving industries over the last two centuries. Weaving and Espadrille making can be seen at several artisan craft works and at the world famous Les Toiles du Soleil, where the colourful fabrics and products are also available to buy. The village has all the amenities you require including a number of bars and restaurants with views of the Pyrenees all around. There is also a large outdoor municipal pool open during the summer months, which becomes the meeting place for children on holidays in the area.

The Vallespir is dotted with charming French holiday towns and villages. Coustouges, Montferrer, Corsavy, Amelie Le Bains, Prats de Mollo and the beautiful town of Ceret being the highlights.

On the Spanish side driving east from La Farga is the Alt Emporda region where there are many equally charming villages, such as Tapis, Macanet de Cabrenys and Darnius tucked away in the riverside forests offering gastronomic options for lunch and dinner using the incredible seasonal ingredients of the region.

The Region )

The Mediterranean coast provides a wealth of beaches and coastal towns from the pebbled sophistication of Collioure in France to the sandy expanses of the northern Costa Brava in Spain. Both accessible within an hour, they are a popular day trip for our guests often combined with a stop of in Ceret or Figueres depending on your country destination of choice for the day!

Boadella Lake provides another bathing option further from the crowds in stunning mountain forest surroundings.

Les Lacs des Montagne including the Lac de Bouillouse and surrounding waters are highland lakes further up into the Pyrenees. They provide more remote but stunning walking and hiking options.

For those less concerned at being one with nature, there are numerous water parks near the coast in both France and Spain for a fun day out.

Towns and Cities

During the year there are many festivals and events, including the world famous Bull Run.
