There aren’t many places in the world where you can be skiing in the morning and enjoying a glass of wine in the sunshine on the Mediterranean coast in the afternoon. Pyrénées Orientales next to the Spanish border is a region of beaches, mountains, rugby, artists such as Matisse and Picasso and Dali. It’s got the vibrant city of Perpignan, the beautiful arty town of Collioure and the Tet valley, famed for skiing and cycling. Properties there are also more affordable than in the Alps and Cote D’Azur region further east. So what can you buy? Here we have a tempting trio.
The market town of Prades in the Tet valley is famed for its chamber music festival every August. Here is a lovely three-bedroom stone house with a gorgeous terrace, at a very nice price.
This beautifully refurbished three-bedroom house is in the lovely village of Sahorre with all the essential shops you need, near the market town of Vernet les Bains 5km away.
This is stunning 10-bedroom house on the edge of the fortified village of Villefranche de Conflent that would be ideal for generating income as a B&B. Comes with a swimming pool and sits next to a river. This listing must be viewed!
