Céret is found in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France. The town, which lies in the foothills of the Pyrénées mountains, has an altitude of 175–1400 meters.  When you stay in self-catering holiday homes in Céret, know that you’ll have the opportunity to explore its Saturday market – it’s a bustling, busy market selling mostly local produce.

The region around Céret is major fruit producer, in particular famed for its cherries. The first of the season's pick are, by local tradition, sent to France's President! The cherry season is during the end of April and May – a must to visit when you rent accommodation in Céret.

The Pont du Diable (Devil's Bridge) is a single arch stone bridge built between 1321 and 1341. It’s impressive - at the time of its construction it was the world's largest arch bridge in terms of span length.

When you holiday in Céret be sure to make time for its world-famous Musée d'Art Moderne, which has numerous Picasso paintings, sculptures and ceramics. The museum also features paintings by Chagall, Matisse, Herbin, Soutine and a few Impressionists.

Céret also holds an annual bull running festival known as la feria where young bulls (usually with their horns blunted) are run through the streets corralled by a group of highly skilled Camargue horsemen and women The feria is always held the weekend nearest to the 14th July, Bastille Day.

Rent a Ceret holiday cottage and you’ll be staying in a town that has a continued tradition of being a home for artists, especially painters and poets. Pablo Picasso lived in Céret in the early part of the 20th century and Café Pablo in the town is dedicated to him. The Grand Café, still operating today, was a meeting place for many famous artists in the early part of the last century. Henri Matisse and Amadeo Modigliani, amongst other artists, visited at this time. Aristide Maillol, a famous sculptor born in the local village of Banyuls-sur-Mer, is represented by two public sculptures - one outside the visitors information centre and the other on the war memorial.
