This attractive area is the extreme south of France bordering the Mediterranean, with the coastal plains and the magnificent Pyrenees offering complete contrasts in scenery.
Perpignan is the main town of the area, with many historic buildings and an attractive river running through it. Many of the hill villages in the foothills of the mountains are very attractive while on the coast at the foot of the hills Collioure is a beautiful small town and Argeles-sur-Mer a little further north is a typical seaside resort with many holiday amenities. For those wanting the sea, the beaches are either long and open or, where the mountains join the coast, are in lovely bays.
There are several ways to reach the area. There is an international airport at Perpignan with weekly scheduled flights. It is possible to fly to Paris and then take an internal flight to Perpignan. Toulouse and Montpellier are the nearest international airports in France with regular flights. Barcelona airport in Spain offers the widest choice of flights and is about 2.5 hours' drive from Perpignan along the motorway. There are also charter flights from the UK to Gerona in Spain, about one hours drive away. The area can also be reached by train and coach from the UK. There are good motorway systems through to the Channel Ports or you can drive in a more leisurely fashion through the rural parts of France.
There is excellent windsurfing and sailing with several marinas in the area, and diving is also available locally. Tennis, golf, riding, camel riding and walking are other outdoor activities which can be enjoyed. For those who fancy a gamble, there are casinos in which to try your luck.
