The site of the lakes
of Saint Jean Pla de Corts
Peace and fulfilment, on land or on the water!
The lakes of Saint Jean benefit from an idyllic setting for nature lovers seeking a break in the countryside. Between Céret and Le Boulou, these two bodies of water surrounded by mountains, with the Massif du Canigó as a backdrop, are the perfect place for a contemplative stroll along the water.
Imagine quietly sitting on the grass, on a bench or even on your paddle board (or standing for the more seasoned), meditating with the soft sound of birds and the view of the mountain … a moment of utter relaxation and escape !
To enjoy the calm and be “alone in the world”, plan an excursion in the early morning or towards the end of the day !
The Col de l'Ullat
Sitting at more than 934mabove sea level, the Col de l’Ullat invites you to mediate and contemplate … Deep in the heart of the Albères national forest, soak up the power of the majestic pines and beeches. The immersive experience will make you feel small faced with such huge trees. And where the forests end and the cliffs begin an exceptional panorama overlooks the Roussillon plain and the Empordà. This authentic sensation of open space is sure to win you over.
Whether hidden deep in the forest or perched on the cliffs facing the view, you will inevitably find the perfect place for you here.
Accessible by car and roughly twenty minutes from Le Perthus, this exceptional place is ideal for a relaxing and soothing breath of fresh air !
The Berges du Tech
In the charming village of Reynès, the banks of Tech are a perfect place to relax! This river which crosses all of Vallespir travelling deep into the Mediterranean, is an integral part of life for the inhabitants of the Valley. Only 12 minutes by bike from Ceret town centre (or 9 minutes by car), you can easily reach it from the main road, not far from the famous iron bridge.
Sheltered from the wind, enclosed in this mountainous setting, the banks of the Tech benefit from a peaceful environment. Sit on the rocks with your feet in the water, breathe in the fresh air and listen to the soothing flow of the river.
A timeless moment of reconnecting with nature !
Les Termes du Boulou has a beauty institute, Compagnie des SPA, open from early March to mid-December. In the top 5 beauty treatments offered here you can find tailor-made relaxing or deep tissue massages with Sothys as well as great body and face treatments.
