Perpignan & the Pyrenees
The interesting and varied region along the Spanish border is rich in history, culture, gastronomy and diverse landscapes; many of these with distinguished Spanish influences. The city of Perpignan nestles at the foot of the Pyrenees, snow-capped until well into the summer months, and guards the ancient routes across the mountains into Spain. Another pearl of this region is the town of Collioure, an ancient port that is home to artists and writers.
As a holiday destination, the area is second to none. It offers families and couples alike the opportunity to explore rocky coves or glorious sandy beaches, to hike in the mountains, visit the important town of Perpignan, enjoy a typical beach holiday in the resorts of the Vermilion Coast such as Port-Vendres, Canet Plage, St Cyprien and Argelès and taste some of the hundreds of wines produced in the region but, above all, to bask in that hot Mediterranean sun.
