“Art. Care. Love of Place. Beautiful environment.”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

A wonderful place to stay as you explore the beautiful Pyrenees -- with all those nearby delightful, cliff hanging French towns. Yet this Villa Lafabregue is safely away from the tourists. We stayed 4 nights (ask for the Palm room). We got tired of restaurants during our one month journey throughout France so we shopped at the large, well stocked supermarket and brought the food back to the villa's beautiful and welcoming environment. ... Stay here. The proprietors are warm and kind ... generous too. -- Oh, of course see the historic abbeys and that old, huge, ingenious siphon deep in nature, up the mountain -- (the siphon starts a small river that feeds the town.) But most of all, this B&B is about history, art, and joy of life.

Room Tip: The Palm room has the best balcony and view of the mountains.

Although we were in Prades during a rainy couple of days, we loved the views of snow-capped Mount Canigou from our room of that name, which had a large balcony. Breakfast was good and the house felt comfy - a family home rather than a "show house". We appreciated suggestions for dinner and for what to do in the rain! Only downside was that there was no stand-alone shower in the bathroom.

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Villa Lafabregue in Prades, and I have to add a rave to all the others posted. The villa is a large 19th-century house surrounded by a garden in the residential section of Prades. Nick welcomed us in the late afternoon, helped carry our luggage up to the second floor, and made tea for us. A lovely welcome. We got upgraded to the largest room in the house, the Canigou, which also has a large private terrace. The view from our room--and also from the enclosed loggia on the main floor--is spectacular: the Canigou massif, which in May when we were there was snow-covered. Creating a welcoming and easy-going atmosphere, Nick and Kate make it possible to bring food in for lunch or supper to eat either in your room or in the breakfast area. They recommended an excellent restaurant on the central square--Le Patio--which was so good, we returned the second night for dinner. Also, while in Prades, don't miss visiting St Pierre, the village church. It has a severe exterior, but you will be surprised by the opulent decoration of the interior. Having spent two weeks on the road in Languedoc/Roussillon, I can say without reservation that this was by far the most pleasant accommodation we had.

Room Tip: Rooms with private terrace--Canigou and the Palm--have fabulous views.

A good chambres d'hote is one of the pleasures of leisure travel in France and this is one of the very best we have stayed in. There was nothing not to like! The owners know how to run an hospitality business. Of many pleasures, the provision of everything (other than the food) for a civilised cold meal in your room or on your terrace and the excellent breakfast stand out.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a room with a terrace.

Spent 6 nights here. Waking up to snow-capped mountains was beautiful. Nick and Kate are lovely hosts. They keep a homely and inviting atmosphere, and are always happy to help. The villa has a fantastic history which adds to the feel of the place. Excellent bed! There's a great variety of room to stay in, with some comfortable gites for a small family. The grounds are perfect for relaxing, whether poolside, on your own terrace or for just a walk around. Keep a look our for a tortoise! Short stroll to the shops or cafes/restaurants. Highly recommended.

I stayed here with my 88 year old father for two nights at the beginning of May. The villa is spacious in a beautiful position. Whilst it is close to the centre of the town it is very quiet and peaceful. Kate and Nick went to great trouble to look after us and make us feel very welcome. Unlike other places they positively encouraged us to take any left overs from breakfast for lunch. If you stay there you wont be disappointed.

We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. As you will read elsewhere, the incredible views, the spacious terraces, the colonial grandeur of the building itself and the attentive (though never intrusive) presence of the owners, Nick and Kate, makes this place very special. We particularly appreciated the easy availability of plates, cutlery, a fridge in the room - all of which made it so easy to picnic on the terrace without feeling that this was something we shouldn't be doing. Also very useful, a vast array of maps and books for guests to make use of on trust. All this for the same price as a square box in a concrete Campanile or Ibis! Don't miss it.

Room Tip: Always pay extra for a terrace
