region » the village

Montferrer (a 2 minute drive away or 30 minute walk) is a very small French village, but with many facilities, including a church, village hall, a small shop/bar and a restaurant (called Le Diamant Noir). It also has some spectacular views down the Vallespir valley over to Spain.

In addition it has an open-air swimming pool (open in July and August), a tennis court, crazy golf and of course a court for pétanque (boules).

The community has 258 inhabitants of which 20-25 actually live in the village.

The church, Saint-Marie, is a Romanesque church from the 12th century and is classified as a national historical monument.

The community has the narrowest underground grottoes in the world, Gorges de la Fou (the gorge of the cascades in Catalan).

The deepest point is 205 metres, and it takes about two hours to walk the 1.5 Km path.
