Excursions and Local Attractions
There is a lot to do and see in Perpignan and in the area. The little village where we live is Cabestany, a 15 min drive from downtown Perpignan which offers great shopping, lovely cafés and beautiful architecture. It is situated 20 minutes from the Spanish border. There are many possible visits to nearby villages on the Mediterranean sea or in Spain and they offer a great way to get to know better the Southern way of living while experiencing a great and interesting gastronomy. The whole area is beautiful and the nice weather allows walks, to visit open air markets and relax while enjoying the view. There is much more to see in driving distance from Perpignan like the medieval little village Castelnou or Collioure, famous for the lovely architecture and numerous painters and artists who live there. There are also lots of beaches to enjoy the sun, the sea and relax. Some activities such as going to the cinema, playing bowling are 5 min. from Cabestany.
