About Stewart Monteith
The owners are Stacy and Stewart Monteith. We are probably best described as an 'international' couple, Stacy is from the States and Stewart is from the UK. We met and married in Kuwait where, among other far-flung places, we have been teachers in international schools. We now live in Florida, again teaching for a living but now more 'grounded' and here to stay (probably!).
Stewart Monteith purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Stewart Monteith chose Eus
Our Eus(ful) house was bought in 2005 to provide a 'home for the summer' when on school holidays and as a possible retirement home. Originally, it was one house that was converted into two flats by previous owners. We have kept it that way, but have completely redesigned and remodeled the interior and added windows, put on a new roof and new floors and floor beams in both apartments and had a complete rewire and new plumbing. The outside areas and the 'cave' have also been given a complete overhaul, away from the rather 'utilitarian' condition they were found in. The renovation took over 3 years but we have ended up with a property that has all the convenience and practicality of a modern home, but blends perfectly with the charming, old stone buildings of the village. We take great pride in our 'new' house and hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
Eus is possibly the most picturesque village in the conflent valley and irresistibly draws the eye as one drives along the road into the Pyrenees. When we were seeking a property to use a s a holiday / retirement home in the area, we never thought it would be possible to find an available home for sale. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate that something did become available and what's more, a house which we fell in love with at first sight. We are now very happy that we can share the good fortune to be able to holiday in such extraordinarily beautiful surroundings, with our guests who have always expressed a similar appreciation for their stay in our 'home from home' in Eus.

Relaxing in Eus
Very well equiped apartment in a beautiful hilltop village with amazing views of the mountains.
Great time in this lovely little village, perched on the hill across from the Pic du Canigou. Good base for day hikes around the area. Very comfortable apartment with great front porch to enjoy the long summer evenings. We were really able to "unplug" and enjoy lots of reading, relaxing evenings and lovely views.
Lovely property with wonderful views of the mountains and valley.
Great location serving as a base for exploring Cathar country. Own transport definitely required. Easy to park near property. Owner and agent Pascale kind enough to buy us provisions as we arrived on a Bank Holiday. Only getting four stars as WiFi strength quite poor, one radiator not working and instructions to access property were not clear.
Wonderful place, wonderful stay
Two fantastic weeks in a very nice and well furnished apartment. Eus is a very beautiful village, far from noise but near to trails, places to visit and useful shops. These two weeks have flown fast, we had a great time!
Bel appartement, confortable MAIS AUCUN ACCUEIL. On doit se débrouiller avec des explications envoyées en ANGLAIS. Personne ne vient durant le séjour pour ACCUEILLIR OU SE RENSEIGNER. PAS DE TELEVISION ! Les images laissent croire...qu'il y en a une.
The pretty village of Eus sits on a small hill aside of the Têt Valley, looking out across fields of peach orchards and commanding a magnificent view of the Canigou Mountain. In the valley below lies the market town of Prades, sleepy for most of the year but coming to life in August with the music of the Pablo Casals Festival. In the surrounding area, opportunities for an active vacation or a relaxing escape are plentiful; access the castle-strewn history of the region (Villefranche/Castelnou), the art-culture of Ceret and Figueres (Picasso/Dali) and the beaches and picturesque fishing villages of the Mediterranean coast (Argeles/Collioure). Alternatively, pursue adventure in the rugged Pyrenees mountains, or indulge in therapeutic relaxation and resuscitation at the many sites of natural thermal springs (Molitg/Vernet les Bains). In the Winter months, take your skis up to the high slopes (Les Angles/Font Romeu), less than an hour away. Be inspired, it's all here!
