Situated in the foothills of the French Pyrenees, Eus is a medieval village with the envious record of being one of the designated “Plus Beaux Villages De France” and also the sunniest village in France. Houses cascade down the steep cobbled traffic free streets with a backdrop of the magnificent Pic Canigou, snow-capped in winter. Views over the Tet valley full of peach, nectarine and olive groves lead the eye in an easterly direction to the coast at Perpignan and to the west towards Andorra. Les Cortalets is a tastefully furnished property reflecting the Catalan character of the village and is constructed in traditional style with local stone walls and exposed beams.

Great place for exploring medieval villages tucked away in the Pyrénées oriental. The little yellow train journey was very picturesque.
