Canigou in Pyrénées-Orientales, a cottage in Languedoc-Roussillon: Canigou exterior

Three bedroom, two bathroom apartment near centre of lively Pyrenean village

Close to the village centre in a quiet courtyard with views to Osseja's forest and in the distance to the majestic Sierra de Cadi mountain-range in Spain, this converted barn has spacious accommodation comprising three bedrooms and two bathrooms with showers.

The village is very close to Spain and on a plateau which offers wonderful walking and cycling, mountain lakes, a heated open air swimming pool, thermal baths, ancient villages and romanesque churches. Osseja has its own pleasant man-made lake with pedalos.

The apartment, which comfortably sleeps up to seven people, is spacious and well-equipped with a brand new state of the art kitchen, a living room with a double sofa-bed, one double bedroom and two twin bedrooms, the second with bunk beds, two bethrooms with showers and a separate WC. The whole apartment was recently completely redecorated. All rooms have excellent storage/fitted wardrobes.

There is an excellent bakery just round the corner and in less than five minutes you are in the centre of the village with many facilities including: a post office, bars, two cafe-restaurants, a tourist fofice, general stores, mini-supermarket, a second bakery, newsagents, chemist, hairdresser and even a cinema!

At 1250 metres above sea level, Osseja is a lively all year round village near the Spanish border and an excellent base for many outdoor activities especially walking, cycling, golf, swimming and horse-riding.

Osseja is a working year round village full of character with a nearby forest - it is renowned for its healthy climate and has a dry and sunny climate with 300 days' sunshine on average a year.

In Summer there is a large open-air heated swimming pool in the nearby village of Err (10 minutes' drive) and there are also all-year round thremal baths at Llo (15 minutes' drive). Several mountain reserves are within easy driving distance.

Osseja has its own train station from which the "little yellow train" winds its way across the Cerdagne plateau and down through the Tet valley as far as the medieval fortress twon of Villefranche de Conflent.

There are many excellent and cheap local restaurants serving healthy and tasty Catalan dishes on both sides of the border including the renowned "Restaurant du Lac" in Osseja itself.

The Puigmal, at 2913 metres the highest summit in the Eastern Pyrenees, is nearby. Excellent walking and cycling routes abound. Numerous other summits, lakes and mountain ranges are also accessible including the magnificent Carlit massif and its lakes, the majestic Sierra de Cadi mountain range where the occasional wolf or bear has been sighted and the rack and pinion mountain train from Ribes de Freser to Nuria in Spain.

Local sites include ancient chapels,like Dorres, a large wildlife park at Les Angles, a solar oven and museum at Odeillo and the fortress town of Mont Louis. For longer excursions by car Andorra and Montserrat are easily accessible as are Barcelona and the coast near Per
