16bis Rue de Vieux Ceret is a spacious three-storey house within the old town walls, with 2 double bedrooms plus mezzanine bed, 2.5 bathrooms and large rooftop terrace. Although it's in the heart of Ceret town where there is lots of action, it is incredibly quiet and peaceful.
I only rent my house by the week or more in the spring and summer.
Contact me to see what suits your situation. I'm flexible!
Ask me about the separate ground-floor suite which might suit an elderly or disabled visitor.
The calendar prices are misleading because the spring rate is about €500 per week and in the summer €700 per week. That's for the entire second and third floors which has the living areas plus 2 double bedrooms and the mezzanine.

Usually my house is rented by the week or more. Changeover days are Sundays or Wednesdays. I ask that my guests do not have house parties or pets and don't smoke. They must turn off the air conditioning when they are not in the house. I do not encourage children under 8 years because of the 3 balconies.

I love to travel and have done so since 1968. My wings were clipped while I had my 5 children but when they grew up I took off again to Central America and Africa. I was lucky to work in Beijing for two years before I retired and I've just returned after teaching in China for 2 terms. I only heard about Airbnb when I was backpacking and hosteling around China, Burma and North Korea in the Spring of 2014. I have had my big house in Ceret for 8 years and I have really enjoyed renovating it to make it comfortable for guests. Now I would like them to rent it while I am in Ireland. I am confident that my house manager, a Ceret local, will take care of any needs that may arise.
My only advice to my children was "Follow your dream!" and they have done so. Now I am living my dream while in Ireland by getting to know my grandson, listening to world music, reading about world cultures, blogging about my travels, providing an immigration consultancy to Chinese immigrants in Ireland, doing gender analysis - and popping over to Ceret for a week at a time. I can speak some French and Spanish and a little Mandarin.
