La Petite Maison offers the best of all worlds - for those wanting a simple relaxing holiday in the sun or for the more adventurous looking for action packed activities.

While in an area of outstanding beauty, the house is not at all remote, benefiting from good air and road links. During the spring months of March and April it is quite possible to ski in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon sunbathing.

Ria is a village with significant historical importance, reportedly being the birthplace of 'Guifried the Hairy', the founder of the Catalan dynasty. The ruins of the 'Castle of Ria' can be found at the top of the village.

Prades, situated a short drive away, is a beautiful market town, with a colourful market held every Tuesday. It is also the home of the Pablo Casels international music festival which is held in July/August each year and attracts musicians from around the world.

Barcelona is easily reachable for a day trip , as is the medieval city of Carcassonne.

It is possible therefore to enjoy a value for money holiday or short break in the South of France at a very reasonable cost.

A perfect holiday home in a great location. We stayed a fortnight; the patio areas were ideal for relaxed eating outside with great views. We used the gas barbeque with great success for a few meals. Our (grown-up) daughter and her partner joined us for weekends and the house was a perfect base. From here the historic and very picturesque villages, mountains and coast are all within easy reach. Locals are exceptionally friendly in this area.

lovely house in peaceful location

By Sue B on 19-Aug-2014

sue b.
We had a lovely holiday is this peaceful house with its stunning views over mount canigou and the surrounding area, The house is well equipped and even on the hottest day it was lovely and cool inside. Its ideally placed, not far from the beaches and the mountains and has some lovely villages locally to explore. We were a little daunted when we arrived to find we couldn't drive up to the house itself to unpack, but soon found the sack truck in the downstairs store room, so loaded it up and took all our luggage in one go, the walk to and from the house is not far and gave us a chance to talk to some of the locals, in fact it was quite nice not to have to worry about traffic and road noise, which living in London is always a problem. Sitting on the terrace in the evening with a glass of wine looking out over the mountains was a delight.

peut mieux faire !

By CC65 on 07-Sep-2013

Site et cadre trés agréable, séjour qui aurait pu ête parfait avec unpeu plus dé sérieux au niveau de l'accueil (informations, remise des clefs,...) et dans l'entretien de la maison en particulier de la cuisine et de l'équipement (insuffisant pour 6)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay and liked the house. We understand that there was a misunderstanding regarding the location of the additional set of keys for the downstairs basement and will take steps to make this clearer on the information sheet provided to guests. While the kitchen is fully equipped for 6 persons, it is possible that breakages may have occurred of which we were not aware. However, we will now review the position and ensure that all necessary replacements are made.

vacances a Ria

By Claudine B on 07-Sep-2012

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Ria. Tout est conforme à la description .Maison très agréable, très propre avec une superbe vue sur le Canigou et la Chaine des Pyrénées. Facilités de contact par mail avec les propriétaires. Pas de possibilités de garer la voiture à proximité de la maison, non conseillée à des personnes agées ou handicapées. Région très belle et très touristique: excursions,randonnées,baignade lac. A recommander !

Schöner Ort zum Entspannen

By Elke G on 09-Aug-2012

Wir hatten für 3 Wochen einen schönen Aufenthalt in dem Ferienhaus.
Von dem Ort aus ist es gut möglich schöne Ausflüge sowohl in die Berge als auch ans Meer zu unternehmen. Gerne kamen wir abends ans Haus zurück um dort auf den Terassen zu entspannen. Wir kommen gerne wieder und würden es auch Freunden empfehlen, die einen entspannten Urlaub verbringen wollen.
Es entspricht soweit den Angaben des Vermieters. Lediglich das 2. Bad ist etwas ungünstig gelegen, um das Haus herum im Keller, so dass wir es nicht genutzt haben.
Bedingt durch die schmalen Gassen um das Haus kann man nicht mit dem Auto vorfahren. Man sollte sein Gepäck gut in Taschen verpackt haben. Im Keller gibt es aber auch eine große Sackkarre, die den Transport erleichtert. Von daher ist es für ältere oder gehbehinderte Menschen nicht geeignet.
Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war stets sehr gut.
Wir wünschen der Familie weiterhin viel Erfolg mit ihrem netten gemütlichen Haus.

Nous sommes partis 3 semaines à Ria et avons été enchantés.D'une part, le village est très beau et nous avons pu apprécier le calme et profiter tous les matins de cette vue magnifique sur les montagnes.
Avec nos enfants, nous avons visité un fort, fait de l'accrobranche, on s'est baignés dans des bains d'eaux chaudes naturelles,on a visité des grottes, des villages typiques. La piscine à Vernet les Bains est très agréable ou on peut se baigner à Vinça qui a une plage aménagée.
Pour les courageux, il y a plusieurs itinéraires de randonnée.
Nous n'hésiterons pas à recontacter Nigel et Hélene pour d'autres vacances dans cette région.
