The medieval village of Estoher,
Estoher is a still unspoilt medieval village, situated in the lower fruit- and wine valley at the foot of the Pyrenees. Protected by the 'holy' Mont Canigou, the village enjoys a strong Mediterranean micro climate with lavender, oleanders, olive trees, mimosa trees, palm trees, cork oaks and a scattered orange tree, which means that the sunny terrace can often be used throughout the whole year.
Within walking distance are the so-called 'Cascades' of Estoher. These are high waterfalls with swimming ponds, in the river. The water comes directly from the Canigou and the size of the ponds varies, depending on the season and rain fall. In the summer, the ponds are used by the inhabitants of Estoher for swimming.
Estoher is very centrally located. So shops and restaurants can be found at a distance of about 5 minutes (and no difficult winding roads) in Marquixanes and Vinça. The prefecture city, nostalgic Prades, is 15 minutes by car and the regional capital, dynamic Perpignan, can be reached in 30 minutes.

    We hebben 10 dagen doorgebracht in dit kleine, knusse, charmante huisje. In het huisje geen overbodige luxe maar alles wat je nodig hebt. Het ligt in een doodlopende straat in een dorpje waar rust met een hoofdletter wordt geschreven. Kortom, een plaats om heerlijk te onthaasten.
    In de omgeving zijn er tal van bezienswaardigheden zonder dat je in de drukte verzeild raakt. Als je van rust houdt en toch er op uit wilt een geweldige bestemming. Overigens is de bevolking hier heel vriendelijk.

    We hebben een heerlijk relaxed weekje gehad in een prachtige omgeving. Het huisje is heel knus en schoon met een geweldig bed en een lekkere douche en een collectie boeken en dvd's. De keuken is zeer compleet, koffiefilters, een paar vaatwasblokjes, zelfs thee en olijfolie. Wij kwamen om uit te rusten en te relaxen en we hebben mooie autotochtjes gemaakt en bezienswaardigheden bezocht, maar als je hier lange en uitdagende wandelingen wilt maken zit je ook op de perfecte plek. Het huis ligt in een knus straatje en de overbuurvrouw is zeer vriendelijk.
    Overigens waren we in goed gezelschap van Tess Clement en Josta Wolf.... de twee hoofdpersonen uit de spannende thrillers die Anya geschreven heeft en die in het huisje liggen. Pas op: als je begint met lezen kun je niet meer stoppen!

    We verbleven 2 weken in huisje Oranger. De sfeer, de ligging; we waren er gelukkig. Er is veel te dien in de omgeving en de geur van landerijen en fruitteelt nemen we met ons mee evenals de aanblik van de zwaluwen due s ochtends door ons prachtige uitzicht vanaf het balkon vlogen. Het huisje is zeer compleet en schoon, de host verdienstelijk. We waren met 4 en het enige punt is dat de uitklapbank beneden niet goed slaapt voor 2 bijna volwassen pubers. Dank Frans en Anya!
