The Pyrenees-Orientales is in the far south of France, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees mountains. Here
people remain proud of their traditions, still speaking Catalan, the language of both the tiny independent state of Andorra
and northern Spain, their neighbours.
Admire the beautiful scenery ranging from high snow-capped peaks to miles of safe, sandy
beaches - as well as valleys, lakes, rolling hills and rocky coves. Or have a day in Perpignan with
its pavement cafes and medieval centre; take a mountain trip on The Little Yellow Train; see the nearby Cathar Castles
or the 450,000 years old Tautavel Man.
As for sports, everything you could possibly want is probably here - skiing, both Alpine and cross-country, swimming, walking, horse riding,
microlight flying, go-karting, golf, cycling, climbing, fishing - under a glorious southern
sun (300 days per year, according to official records).
Not to mention wonderful food and wines - this is one of the largest areas of wine production in France - in reasonably
priced restaurants, many offering freshly caught fish straight out of the Mediterranean.
