Can Llouquette is situated in the most southerly valley in France before you enter Spain, which is so close it is definitely worth a few day trips to explore.

From Prats de Mollo the road proceeds over the breath-taking border at Col D'Ares and down into Spain (with exceptional views back to the massif of Mount Canigou and down the Vallespir valley towards the coast and Perpignan).

Beget village (1 hr), along a smaller road east prior to reaching Camprodon. It is a delightful small village replete with restaurants and plenty of spaces to enjoy the gorgeous mountain views.

There is also a renowned restaurant (where Carreras and Domingo have dined) in the small hamlet of Roca Bruna (40 mins), a few miles before you reach Beget, which is well worth a visit - but don't expect lunch to be anything less than 4 hours!

Camprodon (40 mins) is the first town over this border and here you will find some of the best Catalan delicatessens in the region: justifiably famous for their mountain-air cured sausages.

Other Spanish towns nearby include:

Ripoll (1 hr)

Olot (1 hr)

Besalú (1 hr)

Figueras (1 hr)

Girona (1 hr 30 mins)

Barcelona (2 hrs)
