Beautifully renovated 85m2 luxury apartment in historic hostelry in Serdinya, a medieval village. 2 nights is the minimum you can book. Large totally private terrace overlooks the Canigou mountain. Midway between beaches and ski pistes, excellent location for all winter and summer activities. All the comforts of home in this convenient location. All our guests are thrilled with the apartment's beauty and comfort and particularly with the terrace. The apartment is fully equipped including linens.

The space

Beautiful modern sunlit 2 bdrm gite apartment situated in an ancient Relais de Poste (hostlery) with full sized equipped kitchen, large bathroom, 2 WCs. A beautifully furnished terrace with full southern exposure provides a panoramic view of the valley, the Canigou mountain, and the old village of Serdinya, a 10th century village in the Conflent. Dining outdoors is easy with the plancha cooking grill, and a beautiful dining table that seats six. Have an apero overlooking the Tet River and watch the Yellow Train pass, and maybe stop for passengers, as you lounge in the deck chairs. Go hiking, skiing, take in the hot baths, visit the many monasteries, walled towns, fortresses, and dolmens, take the Yellow Train through the mountains, go canyoning, dirt biking, river rafting and much more. They are all just minutes away. Stroll through Serdinya, a quiet Catalan village with a beautifully maintained 10th century church containing splendid statues and paintings from the middle ages. Located on the Route Nationale, this property is midway between the ski pistes and the beaches at Canet. Triple glazed windows ensure a quiet stay. Full laundry facilities are free and available in the building, parking is just steps from the building. Wifi is free, and all fees are included in the weekly rental price. Beds are currently set up as one queen (160 cm) and two twin beds. Your hosts speak English and French fluently. They can assist you with any situation, and can help you get the most of your stay. Music-lovers, the owners of this apartment are classical music artists, and if you have special events that would be enriched by music, you are welcome to make enquiries for private performances. Serdinya has a park with party-size bar-b-que facilities and picnic tables that can be reserved for large gatherings, should the need arise. Supermarkets, bakeries, sausage shops, and boutiques are less than 15 minutes away in Villefranche and Prades. While you’re here, you can attend the Pablo Cassals Chamber Music Festival, take the cures in Vernet les Bains, lounge in the hot baths of Bains de St. Thomas, visit the unique shops in Villefranche, the fortified village, wander through Eus, the medieval village now occupied by artists, visit the Les Grottes des Canalettes, a superb cave system just 5 minutes away, sample wines from the best vineyards of the Languedoc-Roussillon, visit farms with local dairy and meat products, and above all taste the magnificent peaches, apricots and nectarines for which the region is famous. There are so many more things you can do in the Conflent area - too many to mention here. Plus, we’re 2.5 hours from Barcelona, and 45 minutes from the Perpignan airport.
A unique feature of the Relais de Serdinya are the Singing Holidays, when singing events and singing weekends are scheduled throughout the year. Your host, the American singer Robin Hendrix, is a certified teacher of singing for the French Republic specializing in teaching people who have never sung in the lyric voice to arrive at doing just that, on the very first day of their singing holiday. What a blast! You can book a singing holiday for small or large groups, as there are other residential spaces available in the building. Singing Holidays are a great way to connect with friends and family in a totally new way, and with Robin Hendrix (mezzo-soprano) and her husband Michel Prezman, pianist/composer, you are guaranteed to succeed. Contact your hosts for more information on a Singing Holiday in Serdinya, if that would be of interest. Don't worry, you won't ever be disturbed by music during your stay, unless you choose to have it.

A perfect place for those who value meeting exceptional people like Robin and Michel (and if you are lucky Jochem, the violin player!), not just visiting local attractions and sightseeing. But even for this the location is right and very well comunicates with places of interest nearby.

The Relais is a real find in the midst of a many-jewelled valley. Robin and Michel were perfect hosts for a two-week stay in the height of the August heat. Just a few minutes from Villefranche for morning pastries, and close to Prades for its bustling market (and supermarket), Serdinya is a great location for all the many attractions that the Têt Valley has to offer. The apartment itself was very clean and well presented, and the welcome was extraordinary. We had plenty of space to relax in the heat and enjoy the peace of the valley, but Robin and Michel were so friendly we invited them for a couple of evenings drinking wine on the terrace. And what a terrace - with the housemartens swooping around, the view of the Canigou changing every day, and so much space to enjoy ourselves. We had great fun and can't thank our hosts enough.

We had a wonderful time in Serdinya with Robin and Michel. The apartment was very spacious, beautifully renovated, well-equipped, and the view off the terrace was stunning. The town is very quiet, with loads of hiking trails in the surrounding mountains. We wished we could have stayed longer and hope to be back someday.

We had a pleasant stay in the beautiful apartment Serdinya. Robin and Michel are very kind and friendly hosts. The special location of the place allowed us many trips to the beautiful villages and landscapes of the region. My wife, my daughters and I kept a good memory

Sundrenched is extremely practically located for hiking and other outdoor activity in the Pyrenees. We hiked Mount Canigou and Gorge Caranca which both are within 15 min drive from Robin's place. The apartment is nicely decorated, clean and cozy. Terrasse has sun practically all day long and scenery is beautiful: view of Mont Canigou, river that runs thru the village and wilderness. Robin's kitchen is well equipped and wifi connection works. Robin is extremely welcoming host and it was a pleasure to stay with her.

Thank you so much for the great stay we had at Serdinya, Languedoc-Roussillion. Robin and Michel were very helpful and made sure we had a nice experience at their apartment. Every day we enjoyed eating at their south facing balcony with the added bonus of hearing the occasional live piano music playing from the home of Robin and Michel. The area offers a variety of day-tours. We had the chance to experience many of them – some at foot, others while driving. Grocery shopping at the closest town Prades is easy, but we recommend you to bring a car, while staying at Serdinya. Bodil and ingeborg

Robin and Michelle could not have made us more welcome. The accommodation is superb, the views fantastic and the area is lovely. We would love to come back in the future and we're missing the balcony already! Thanks for looking after us so well!
