This comfortable and well equipped apartment lies in the centre of the old town of Perpignan, in an historic building with fine views over the spacious Place de la Republique. The building was completely renovated in 2007 shortly after the refurbishment of the square into a large open pedestrian space.
The apartment is located on the 2nd floor of number 5, next to the Municipal Theatre. It has a large living room overlooking the square with dining area and fully equipped open plan kitchen. It sleeps 4 in two double bedrooms (single beds) and there is a modern fully tiled shower room.
The square plays host to a daily (except Monday) market and stages many live concerts and spectacles throughout the year. Locals and visitors alike congregate to shop or relax in the many cafes throughout the year.
Perpignan is a vibrant, colourful and multicultural town. It's soul is more in tune with Spain than France and it proudly flies the yellow and red Catalan flag. It is a place where winter is short and it boasts some 300 days of sunshine a year.
Perpignan has a year round calendar of festivals and entertainment and hosts the internationally acclaimed exhibition of photojournalism. The town pulsates to the sound of music in summer and sparkles in the Christmas lights.
Perpignan is passionate about rugby and the locals are keen supporters of both USAP and the Catalan Dragons.
Perpignan is also noted for the restoration of its historical heritage, which is evident in its many attractions: the Palais des Rois de Majorque, the Cathedral St Jean, the Castillet and the Casa Pairal Museum to name but a few.
Perpignan is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding region. It lies close to the sandy Mediterranean beaches of Canet en Roussillon and Argeles sur Mer.
Further south are the picturesque resorts of the Cote de Vermeille, the most noted of which is Collioure. Alternatively head north to the historic French towns of Narbonne and Carcassonne.
Inland lie the mountain of Canigou and the ski resorts of the Pyrennees, accessed by the valleys of the rivers Tech and Tet.
Along the former border between Spain and France lie the Cathar castles of Queribus and Peyrepeteuse.
Many of these are accessible by train or bus for a €1 fare.
Spain is now but a short journey South using the TGV and offers the delights of the towns of Figueres, Girona and Barcelona.
