Hiking, mountain walking and cycling are literally on our doorstep with trails to the GR10 across the Pyrenees just outside our gate. We are 4km from the Spanish border so the Costa Brava, Girona and Barcelona are all accessible for a day trip. The Mediterranean coast is 20 minutes by car with sandy beaches and watersports and sailing available at Argeles and St Cyprien and the historic, picturesque town of Collioure slightly further down the coast. The nearest town is Ceret, famous for its cherries, its modern art museum (which includes pieces by Picasso and Matisse) and its lively Saturday market.
