Ceret is a very picturesque town, typically “old” French with many narrow cobbled streets. There is plenty to explore which is well described on the Internet sites. The apartment is well situated in the center of the town and everything you need to see and do is within easy walking distance e.g. museums, restaurants/cafes shops etc. and the not to miss Saturday market. The accommodation is indeed a hidden gem it was comfortable, immaculately clean and provided everything we needed to make it a very enjoyable stay. The spiral staircase is large (wide) solid stone, not a rickety metal one and can be negotiated with ease. There is a nice big and comfortable bed and a modern and convenient bathroom off the bedroom. The kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed. Perfect for two and all in all very highly recommended.
