Céret Things to Do

  • Cherry festival - The main event!!!!!

    The cherry-pip spitting contest to close the cherry festival is well known in the region, as the number of participants show. From 5/6 y.o. up to "a certain age". A good laugh is for all, especially the spectators as pips fly, not always down the runway, out to as far as 11.00 metres and over. This years winner "only" reached 10.80 metres, with my...

  • Be in Ceret for the cherry festival III.

    The music and dancing lasted about 2 hours on the Sunday, with plenty to do for the kids before the main event.

  • Be in Ceret for the cherry festival.

    First off, it's nice to see loads of people milling about with not one out of place gesture, just good fun to be had by all. Saturday lunch time starts off with several local bands walking the streets, playing and creating a marvellous atmosphere and making one almighty racket. Following on there is a cherry-peeling game where you have to take the...

  • This is what France does best

    Relax, sit in a sunny square, shaded by plane trees and listen to music. Enjoy friendly service provided by a young couple who put everything into serving good country-style French food in an incredible way. Most weekdays in the summer, Francoise & Stephane, together with only a couple of staff, serve what has to be the best food in Ceret, to...

  • Charming hotel-restaurant-brasserie

    I would like to stress that we did not eat here. We were in town for an art exhibit and passed this house while walking to the museum from our parking place. It was so lovely that it immediately caught our atten tion . . . as did the lovely gentleman perusing the menu and the little boy playing nearby.The little boy looked so French and the man...

  • Cheap and cheerful.

    I must admit that all the years I've been coming to Ceret, I still feel that there's not a lot of choice in the way of restaurants. I seem to always come back to this one, one of three on the place des 9 jets. The food is nothing exceptional but the atmosphere is nice and the prices agree with most peoples pockets. Even nicer, being outside under...

  • Next to the Museum of Modern Art

    This is a well established little cafe conveniently situated next to the Museum of Modern Art.We had excellent salads, prepared to order and beautifully presented without delay.We ate outside on the pavement terrace under the shade of the plane trees on a warm and sunny day in mid-April

  • Cheap and cheerful

    This little restaurant /snack bar is tucked on to the corner of what once must have been a rather splendid and gracious hotel. When you go through the cafe to use the toilettes you can see how they are connected. Entrance to the Hotel is round the corner - it looked just the kind of quirky, old fashioned place we love to stay in ( hoping that the...

  • Disappointed again!

    I have gathered a number of reviews and guide book recommendations for this restaurant and we had hoped to have lunch here. But as on our previous visit it was firmly closed with not even a menu to be gazed at in consolation. It has a good reputation but is also expensive so perhaps our consolation was that we saved quite a few euros, and a too...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We travelled to Céret by car from Collioure where we were staying. It is about 17 miles and we left Collioure in bright sunshine, some bathers already in the sea.

    But we had hardly gone 5/6 miles before we saw snowy peaks ahead.

    As we entered Céret we saw two remarkable sights - a very grand railway viaduct and the 14th century Devil's Bridge - no longer used for traffic and replaced by a modern bridge alongside.
    Both bridges feature in the paintings of some of the artists who made their home in Céret.

  • Artisanal Ceret ceramics.

    Lovely little shop on rue Manolo that has homemade ceramic ware from decorative tiles to ashtrays to bowls and vases for flowers. Also has other local craftwork such as aprons, napkins and other decorative knick-knacks. I bought two of the large red flower bowls that can be seen on the left of the photo plus a two bowl stand and bowls for a little...

  • A bit of everything.

    Lots of little shops with attractively dressed windows - - I guess all needs could be met here within the town.The Presse - just past the Museum and Le Citron Bleu is excellent and sell s far more than newspapers. My husband was able to buy a very good leather watch strap there to replace the ancient one that split while we were there. We fancied...

Céret Off The Beaten Path

  • The Serrabonne priory.

    The priory is reached by a tiny twisting track off of the road between Ille sur Tet and Amelie les Bains. It is very well marked from either direction. It is a classic example of Catalan/Roman architecture ; very sober lines and massive walls in schist. Founded in 1082, it was enlarged a century later. The priory declined from the 1300's onwards...

  • L'Hermitage de San Ferreol.

    Dominating Ceret and the Tech valley high on a hillside and roughly 4.5 kms from Ceret stands the old hermitage of San Ferreol. First built in the 13th century, the chapel was rebuilt in the 1600's. Looks as if it has been renovated since in 2004, going by the date on the sundial. Now only open on Sundays for visits, there is a pilgrimage in...

  • Around the ancient walls of the town.

    The town is expanding and new developments just outside the "old town" are springing up rapidly. It is worth taking your time to wander around the maze of streets within what remains of the city walls. We came across the old Church just as a funeral was about to begin.It was very moving to observe the way friends, neighbours and villagers just...

  • Visit the local Tourist Office

    This attractive building is easily found at the end of Boulevard Maréchal Joffre, past the Museum and the Mairie turn left and you won't miss it. The Staff are welcoming and helpful and the building to the left behind the statue - is a small hall- that often houses local exhibitions. We saw a local Quilters show there on our first visit in...
