Description from the owner
Le Juchoir (The Roost) is a small but surprisingly spacious house in the little hill village of Cassagnes, just 30 minutes from Perpignan, one of France's prettiest and liveliest cities. And new in 2014 it has Wi-Fi with high-speed internet. It is perfect for a couple with one or two children, with a good size bedroom and a shower room on the ground floor, and a lovely light living room / kitchen upstairs, with one entire wall of floor-to-ceiling oak-framed windows, opening onto a terrace with a view of the hills. Light floods through these south-east facing windows, making the living area bright and sunny, even in winter. And for the win...Read more

Cassagnes, Languedoc-Roussillon, France
Additional Location Information
Le Juchoir is in a very quiet street on the edge of the hill village of Cassagnes. You can drive right up to the front door to unload, and there is virtually no passing traffic. There is a small parking place just 30 metres away.
The village has a perfect little shop where you can buy all the essentials – milk, fruit, vegetables, cheese, salami, etc – and fresh hand-baked bread and croissants from the bakery next door. (The baker is the shopkeeper's husband.) There's also a really sweet little restaurant, Auberge des Capitelles, a bar, and a post office. All these are within two minutes walk of the house. A butcher's van, and a clothes stall, also visit once a week.
Perpignan airport is very close: just 30 km. Close enough to take a taxi if you don't want to hire a car.
From the airport you take the D117 towards Axat. At Estagel turn off for Latour-de-France, then follow the signs for Cassagnes.
Cassagnes, on a hill overlooking the Agly River, is surrounded by stunning and dramatic scenery, close to the area known as the Fenouillèdes. Set between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, the rocky landscape is covered with a mat of low lying shrubs – 'garrigue'. Aromatic shrubs such as lavender, rosemary and wild thyme flourish along with juniper and holm oaks, interspersed with Côtes du Roussillon vineyards clinging to the rocky slopes.
The area offers excellent walking and bird watching right on the doorstep. And the Agly is a favourite destination for rafting and canyoning. Cassagnes is just a half-hour drive from Queribus, the last Cathar stronghold, and one of the most atmospheric. Closer still are the pretty fortified villages of Latour-de-France and Bélesta, previously frontier towns between France and Spain.
To the east, Cassagnes is just 45 km from miles and miles of sandy Mediterranean beaches, and even closer to one of France's prettiest and liveliest cities, Perpignan. During the summer months Perpignan hosts all sorts of attractions, from jazz and music festivals to street fairs and art exhibitions. With its strong Spanish and North African influences, it offers many restaurants, cafes, and bars, as well as some of the most interesting shops you're likely to find anywhere.

Additional notes from the owner
The difference between our low and high season prices may seem small compared to some other properties. This is simply because our prices include water and electricity consumption, regardless of season, while many properties charge extra for electricity for winter rentals. We think this makes things more complicated for you, and gives a misleading impression of the rental cost during colder months. Our prices also include bed linen, towels, and cleaning after you leave.
The changeover day is flexible, to allow guests not tied to weekend-to-weekend holidays the option of mid-week travel. If your planned dates leave a gap of a few days after the end of a previous booking or before the start of the next one, we may offer a special rate for you to extend your visit to fill the gap.
The standard rental period is from 1700 (5 pm) on the arrival date, to 1000 (10 am) on the departure date. If you would like to arrive or leave before or after these times, please ask: it may be possible if there are not back-to-back bookings.
A 30%, non-refundable, deposit will secure your booking. The balance, also non-refundable, plus a damage deposit of $250, is payable six weeks before the start of the rental period. The damage deposit will be returned, minus the cost of repairing any damage, or replacing any broken items, within 14 days of your departure. Please make sure you have cancellation insurance in place before you pay the deposit, since all payments made, except for the damage deposit, are non-refundable.
Contact us if you would like to discuss a special rate for rentals of four weeks or longer, or for less than a week.
