Arrived at Prades quite late in the evening as part of our trip through the Pyrenees en route to Andorra. We hadn't made any reservation, but thought we would risk being able to find somehwere open - even though it was quite 'off season'. Prades was pretty much closed and we didn't hold out much hope of finding somewhere to stay. However, we stumbled upon the Villa du Parc. A quick read of Tripadvisor reviews confirmed our decision to stay overnight.
We were greeted by a german guy (our apologies for not asking your name and introducing ourselves properly) who owns the adjoining restaurant and who was looking after the hotel whilst the owners were away on a much deserved holiday. The hotel was closed for the week. However, on realising our predicament, he made a quick phone call and agreed to let us have a room for the night.
The room itself was absolutely spotless. The interior was a very pleasant blend of comfort, but with a very modern design outlook. We were delighted with our room and was just what we needed after a long day in the mountains.
Our very brief stay here was a highlight of our trip. The hospitality and generosity of spirit extended to us was incredible - even though we had essentially descended upon the hotel without reservation and whilst it was closed.
I would recommend the Villa du Parc in a heartbeat to anybody travelling in the area - even if you are 40-50km away, it's worth the travel.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Manor built in the 30th with beautiful gardens and breathtaking views on the Mt. Canigou. The strategic situation between the mediterranian sea and the Pyrenees makes the villa a fantastic base for all kinds of nature sports, motorbiking, cycling, hiking etc. The combination of a wide range of activities with the nearby swimming lake, the mediterranian beaches or our pool makes it just perfect for an active-relaxing holiday. We provide traditional B&B or self catered apartments in different sizes (sleeps 2-5 ). In the evening you can sit on the terrace, enjoy the scenery or make your own barbecue in the garden. If you prefere eating in one of the local restaurants, just a short walk away, we would be happy to reserve a table for you. ... more less
