Just a few minute’s walk to the cafés and shops and the heart of medieval Perpignan - a lively and historic city, dating from the 13th and 14th centuries it has a distinct Spanish flavour; where the Kings of Majorca once held court.
You’ll find many ancient attractions including ‘Le Castillet’, a 14th century gateway and part of the old city walls, now housing the Casa Pairal Museum; the Cathedrale St-jean with its elaborate interior and the Palais de Rois de Majorque, the royal palace of King James II.
The cobbled, pedestrianised area is buzzing with cafes, brasseries, chic boutiques and chocolatiers. The market in the Place de la Republique is one of many places selling local produce and wines at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended for experiencing a slice of French life.
Well situated for both the Mediterranean coast and the Pyrenees - the apartment is only a 5 minute walk from the local train/bus station and BIP bike hire routes, making it an excellent base to explore the coastal resorts and mountain regions all year round.
Pay a visit to the quaint fishing port and Fauvist centre of Collioure, dominated by the Chateau Royal. Within an hour you could be lunching at a quayside restaurant (the town is famous for anchovies) or buying a painting from one of the resident artists. Not to be missed is the Fort de Salses an impressive and well preserved 15th century Catalan stronghold, only 30 minutes from Perpignan.
