People always tend to say ‘location’ three times, but in Perpignan it makes sense, you’re located just below the dramatic peaks of the Pyrenees, just a short drive to the west from the Mediterranean, and just a little north of the border with Spain. And from some of the best places to stay in Perpignan you’ll have a view of the first two - not bad!
The proximity with Spain lends a certain extra colour, and a bit of extra interest to the already interesting cuisine. Plus Perpignan is really big on fiestas.
