I should have dropped you a line earlier to say how much we
enjoyed our stay at The Old Forge--the house has so much character, and the surroundings are so beautiful. The Via Ferrata on the road to St Paul de Fenouillet is really good fun if you have a head for heights.
Le Vivier is a small wine growing village dominated by the ruins of the castle and with many signs of its medieval origins. Not far from the village of Rennes le chateau famed for its connection to Dan Browns Da Vinci code it is surrounded by magnificent countryside with cathar castles and Romanesque buildings to visit and every kind of outdoor activity catered for nearby. The city of Perpignan is less than an hour away and the famous port of Collioure (where most of the impressionist painter came to paint) a little further down the coast.
St Paul de Fenouillet is 15Ks away with supermarket and all the shops you need although you should make one visit to Auchan the grand supermarket outside Perpignan.
