The Real France
This holiday retreat was a real gem. What really made the holiday special, was the fact that the local residents were all so friendly. It seemed to be because they all knew the owner of the holiday home and by association we were welcomed. Such lovely people! Best of all, is the wine district in which this property lies. We spent wonderful hours touring all the vineyards and tasting wines that hardly every get out of the region. If you are looking for the real France this is it!

What a fantastic experience!
All I can say is what a beautifully situated place to stay. The house is equipped with everything our family needed for a relaxing and interesting holiday. It has obviously been restored and furnished with a great eye for detail. The terraces were a very popular feature with the kids and a were a great place to share a meal in the open air with views over the village and surrounding area. We had great fun tasting the local wine which was excellent and enjoyed exploring the area for some great scenery and places to eat. Everything was really well organised and directions and local info was really helpful. We will definitely be returning in the future and would really recommend this to anyone who wants to get a real taste of Southern France staying in a wonderful house.

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful part of France.
We spent 2 weeks exploring this beautiful region of France; Maison Caramany as our base. The house is tastefully decorated and superbly equipped with everything we needed and more! Caramany village is quiet and a perfect place to be if you prefer a non-touristy location. From the house we visited most of the local villages, wineries and restaurants. We enjoyed day trips to the rock pools and waterfalls of Duilhac and easily travelled to the coast for days at the beach. Gino, the owner, was incredibly helpful in his communication to us before, during and after our stay and also through the wealth of notes about the region he'd collated and provided in the welcome folders. A superb holiday. One day we hope to be back.

This is a great place to get away from it all and a great base to explore Pyrenees Orientales
An extremely well equipped property, quiet village, nearby wine cooperative, some local walks/cycles and the auberge are great local attractions. Cathar castles, Perpignan and Carcassonne accessible by car as well as other less-well known sights. Comprehensive, honest and very helpful local information provided by the owner.

About the neighbourhood
Caramany is a haven for those looking to wind down. With a population of 150 and next to no traffic, village life is simple, intimate and peaceful. Madame Aubert pulls up every morning on the square in her little white van, selling baguettes, croissants and cakes. Pop into the “Mairie” (Mayor’s office) to see if there’s an upcoming fete or petanque (French boules) tournament you can join in with. Pick up a map there which outlines walks in the surrounding hills. Have a drink and game of pool with the villagers at Patrick’s café a few doors up. Enjoy a barbecue on the terrace of Maison Caramany or take a picnic to the belvedere outside the village which offers breathtaking views of the lake below. All this will make you realise just how fast our lives have become.
