We offer a comfortable, well appointed, 'traditional' but modernly furnished accommodation in the gorgeous countryside of this region.
The apartment has a queen double bedroom off of the living / dining / kitchen area. A bathroom with a larger, glass-walled shower makes the third room. There is a good size private terrace / garden to the rear, with lots of space to relax, with a garden table and chairs to take the indoors out.
In the lounge there is a large TV with DVD player and a small DVD library. A wireless internet connection is available to keep your digital devices connected.
Quite the rarity, yet sometimes a necessity here in Eus, touted "the sunniest village in France", there is full air conditioning in the living room and bedroom. You will appreciate it on the hottest days in July and August! Ceiling fans are also installed to keep you refreshed.
A fully equipped kitchen with cooker, stove top and microwave will allow you to indulge a little 'French cuisine' if the mood should take.
The small village of Eus is designated a 'plus beau ville de France' on account of it's stunning location and well kept 'old world' quaintness. The narrow alleyways are fringed with exotic plants and flowers and you can see that the locals take a great deal of pride in their lovely village. There are a number of artists and crafts people who live and work in Eus, and their products are available right from their workshops and galleries or in the craft-shop in the village square. If your appetite for local crafts is not satisfied here, there is a larger selection in the nearby, fortified village of Villefranche de Conflent.
Eus is a popular destination in summer and is served by a busy bar in the square and a tapas bar/restaurant popular with the locals, with commanding sunset views at the top of the village.
Dining experiences in Rousillon-Conflent are as varied as the countryside and its people and you will discover why the region is famed for it’s fusion of Catalan / French / Mediterranean cuisine.
Close by is the market town of Prades, where supermarkets and other essential services are to be found and which hosts the annual Pablo Casals music festival in July/August. Market day on Tuesday and a local farmers market hosted in the town square on Saturday are must-do’s.
There is lots for the visitor to enjoy in Eus and the surrounding area. For those on a cultural visit, there is history to be told in every village of the Conflent and beyond. The region is an important wine producer and if this interests you, there are several vineyards, which offer tours and tasting. Mountain sports from walking the hills and valleys to rafting and gorging the many rivers and tributaries are all on offer here in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The major ski resorts of Font-Romeu and Les Angles are less than an hour away by car or bus. Or take a scenic train ride to the mountains on the famous 'little yellow train' and then go for crepes in one of the many bars and restaurants of the fortress town of Mont-Louis.
There is simply too much to do and to see in this stunningly beautiful and unspoiled area to give it justice here, better to go explore for yourself and you will see why the few who have discovered this tiny corner of France, always vow to return!
