The centre of Perpignan is approximately 50 minutes drive from Can Llouquette.

Perpignan was once the capital of Roussillon and now acts as préfecture of the Pyrénées Orientales. It was also once a flourishing port - but now finds itself about 3 Km from the sea. The hub of Perpignan is the Place Arago.

Narbonne (1 hr 30 mins), once the capital of the Languedoc, enjoys impressive medieval monuments, boulevards and lively streets.

Béziers (1 hr 45 mins) is a busy port on the Canal du Midi and the river Orb best known for its rugby team and impressive hilltop skyline. It is also a famous centre for bull fighting.

Just past Béziers is the attractive stone-built town of Pézenas (2 hrs) - little changed since the 1700s.

Carcassone (1 hr 30 mins), will seem like the middle ages brought to life. Images of the walled-city and its castle ramparts breathtaking. And each year there are three medieval events to underscore the drama.

Montpellier (2 hrs), lying some 10 Km from the Mediterranean sea, is a maze of narrow lanes, off which you will find wonderful courtyards, squares and boulevards. The hub of this Lou Clapas (or heap of stones as the old quarter of Montpellier is affectionately known) is the Place de la Comédie.

Toulouse (2 hrs 30 mins) is the ancient and animated capital of the Languedoc. It is also the fourth largest city in France and a rapidly expanding commercial metropolis to boot.

Girona and Barcelona in Spain are reachable within 1 hr 30 mins and 2 hours respectively.
