“Outstanding, Superb, Wonderful, Magnifique!”

A very special apartment in a wonderful position with such superb views of the sea, the bay and the village along with the backdrop of tree-covered hills with which to frame it all. The photos of the interiors truly reflect the exceptional skill and taste of the owners, Karine & Jose who have selected every aspect of the furniture, fittings, accessories and decoration to give an exquisite style and ambience to the whole property. Absolutely everything in the apartment has been given the utmost thought, right down to the corkscrew and coat hooks! And it is all meticulously clean and in perfect condition.

The owners gave us a very warm welcome and were easily contactable for help or advice but otherwise kept a discreet distance. There is a very detailed folder of information with lots of useful hints and tips on places to go and things to do, and even a quick read through the guest book showed that everyone who has ever stayed here had loved the place as much as us.

Its position on the edge of the village was also ideal - in a quiet spot up on the hillside but just a short (but quite steep) walk down to the village square to get the beautiful baguettes from the baker and a coffee on the waterfront before strolling back for breakfast. There is also a good convenience store, chemists, etc within the village for all the basic needs. Even in March/April there were also a couple of good bar/restaurants open on the seafront. And, if you prefer a walk into the countryside, just a couple of minutes takes you away from the village and through the vineyards and lavender and up into the surrounding hills or onto the coastal path if you wish.

We really liked Cerbere itself. It has a fascinating history which is well worth Googling and it has a more genuine character than many coastal resorts, and has not been spoiled by the effects of tourism. It is also a good base for discovering the many nearby places of interest - whether by car (as we did) or via the very cheap and effective local buses that run from the village or by train if you want to travel further afield - again with the station just a 10 minute walk away.

This part of France is new to us but we absolutely loved our stay here and have already arranged a return visit, with further hopes to come back again and again into the future, such is the impact it has had on us. And, if you find Casa Picasso is already booked for your chosen dates, don't hesitate to check out Karine's three other apartments within the same small apartment block. We took a look at them all (with future visits in mind) and they are all furnished in a very similar (but quite individual) way and would make a wonderful base for exploring this varied and delightful corner of southern France.

We will be back!

Beaucoup de compliments. C'est trop gentil de votre part. Nous sommes vraiment contents de vous faire plaisir et nous serons ravis de vous accueillir à nouveau avec vos 2 adorables animaux. Cerbère est un petit village très attachant, loin du tumulte des grandes stations balnéaires. C'est idéal pour se ressourcer et passer un bon moment de détente en famille. A très bientôt.
