For many, Ceret represents the quintessential southern French town - it has a very pretty historic old town at its centre, with avenues of trees lining its main throughway bordered by cafes, bistros, shops and boutiques whose tables and wares are set out on the pavements in the summer. On Saturday mornings, the artisan market stalls fill the old town streets with wonderful arrays of locally produced fresh fruit and vegetables, olives, cheeses, herbs and spices, cured meats, wines and honeys. There are the elements of French living that we are all familiar with: the local boulangerie providing crisp croissants every morning, the rich and vibrant cafe culture where hours can be spent perusing newspapers, gossiping and drinking copious amount of Pastis, the feeling that everyone knows each other and that greeting perfect strangers with a cheery a€;œBonjoura€; is de rigeur.
