  • Description


    I would like to invite you to spend some time in this magnificent area in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
    The mount 'Canigou' seems planted at the edge of my garden,2874 m above the sealevel and sacred for all Catalans.
    Looking on Prades as from a balkony,a pleasant house to live.
    Every 23th of June 'la trobada' assembles Catalans from the north as from the south (Spain), a huge fire is made on top and brought down to multiples towns and villages where there's music and dancing celebrating summer solstice.
    While staying at my place I'd love you to discover all this, easy and so cheap ( for 1 euro one way ride on bus or train) trough the whole department!

    Otherwise some gardening, mending the acces to the site, planting shrubs / bamboo install an irrigation system(drip), small jobs on and around the house, vetg garden...

    Accomodation in the house or tent, according to what's available.
