Between the Sea and the Moutain



The perfect geographical location? 

That is definitely the appropriate way to describe this area which is so close to Spanish Catalonia sandwiched between the sea and mountains.

Le Vallespir truly is a diverse destination with everything on offer!


During your stay in Vallespir, enjoy an escape to the rocky coast only thirty minutes away. Discover the unmissable Collioure, the listed site of the Paulilles cove in Port Vendres and the village where Maillol  stayed: Banyuls sur Mer !

Take the coastal path and enjoy a hike overlooking the sea, treat yourself to a trip out to sea or swim out into the warm blue waters and relax on the beach.


Get lost deep in the landscape for a day and explore the areas of Haut Vallespir, Conflent or les Aspres !   
Learn about Catalan weaving techniques by visiting the famous “Toiles du Soleil” factory in Saint Laurent de Cerdans.  Explore the streets of one of the most beautiful villages in France : Castelnou, where, not far away, you can visit the Caves of BYRRH, and the village of Thuir, which holds the largest oak vat in the world. And while you’re in the area, why not set about to climb and conquer the scared Catalan mountain, “Le Canigo” 
Board the small yellow train in Villefranche de Conflent to access the high mountain and visit the fortifications of Vauban in Mont-Louis.


During a trip to Spanish Catalonia, treat yourself to a visit to the Dali Museum in Figueres and immerse yourself in the fascinating and unique world of this famous painter. You can also pay a visit the typical village of Cadaquès, on the Catalan coast, which will enchant you with the beauty of its streets, monuments and beaches. 15 minutes from Cadaquès, discover one of the most famous coves at “Port Lligat”. This is where Dali lived for many years finding both peace and inspiration for his artistic creations. What are you waiting for?
