This was our first experience of booking a holiday using the Net. It was all very easy and the accomodation and the surrounding area lived up to our expectations.
The accomodation was spacious and comfortable and everything we needed was provided. Erik and Anette were very friendly and most helpful. Altogether our stay was a very happy one which passed far too quickly......

This part of France is beautiful and there is so much to do. We have only had time to sample a little and we hope to be back before too long......

The Village itself is fascinating and we never tired of the view from our terrace.....

advert-photo-sm (27K) We have been very happy to be here. Le Village Catalan is very nice with a perfect location with respect to the facilities of Vernet les Bains and especially the hiking trails. The mountains are very beautiful with excellent possibilities for hiking. In addition to the very popular hiking tours to Pic du Canigou, Cascades des Anglais and St. Martin du Canigou, we would like to recommend the following:
Climb the small mountain behind Les Thermes to Pic de la Pena, continue to Tour de Goa and Col de Jou and then down to Casteil and back to Vernet les Bains (4 - 5 hours depending on breaks, children etc.).
Drive by car via Sahorre and Py to Col de Mantet and walk down to Pic de Tres Estelles and back. (3 - 4 hours also also depending on breaks, children etc.).
DCP_0263sm (13K) The 1:25.000 map from the book store is very useful. The public outdoor swimming pools of Vernet are good, especially for children (also small ones).
We would like to come back! ........

We spent most of our time here walking in the mountains of Canigou & Cerdagne - Capcir. These gave us some very wonderful and memorable walks - as always in the Pyrenees - the weather here, however, has been consistently better than any other holiday we have had in France. For serious mountain walking we recommend the Gorges Véron "Le guide Rando" both "Canigou, Cerdagne et Capcir" - even if your Franch isn't good the directions and maps are easy to follow. dcp_1586sm (12K) We already had these but have seen them in the local bookshops who also have "Petit Randonnée" and "Emilie" guides for shorter walks. We loved the pool for cooling off in the evening. The gite was very convenient and comfortable. Lovely cool bedroom and great views over the town......

Our stay was most relaxing and serene. We loved the location and all the wonderful opportunities for side trips. The hiking trails were wonderful.
Our host and hostess were so helpful and kind....
