Céret Information

The delightful small town of Céret is famous for its Museum of Modern Art, founded with the help of Picasso and Matisse. They were just two of the celebrated artists who were attracted to the region at the beginning of the twentieth century. Céret is also known for its early cherries and has the honour of sending the first of the crop to the president of France. With its numerous foreign residents and closeness to the Spanish border, it has a cosmopolitan atmosphere. There is a choice of fine restaurants, traditional butchers and bakers, a popular Saturday market, and several schools. A full programme of cultural and other events takes place throughout the year.

Communications are excellent, with the A9 autoroute 7km away, and the nearest airports at Perpignan and Girona in Spain. The Mediterranean is within half an hour’s drive, offering long sandy beaches to the north or the rugged Costa Brava in Spain. Hiking, skiing and other mountain sports are all easily accessible in the Pyrenees and Andorra - a nature lover’s paradise on the doorstep!
