The glorious mountain region of the Pyrenees-Orientales is a marvellous link between France and north-eastern Spain. As a colourful area of the Languedoc Roussilon state, the Pyrenees-Orientales maintains its Mediterranean roots throughout the meandering coastline and expansive countryside.
Its major city is Perpignan, which oozes with Catalan glamour as well as a rich sporting heritage, particularly in Rugby Union. The metropolitan lifestyle contrasts with the tranquillity and exceptional climate enjoyed in Cerdagne. With an average of 2,800 hours of sunshine expected each year, the glistening mountains and great natural beauty create an absolute haven for tourists wishing to get away from it all.
There are so many spectacular sights to see, from the breathtaking Tet Valley to the remarkable 13th century sights from the Middle Ages in Carcassone – get lost in a piece of French heritage. Experience the proud nature of the Catalonian people and book a vacation rental. Tremendous authentic rental villas and chalets are simply perfect for relaxing in the mountains and enjoying the best that the Pyrenees-Orientales has to offer.
