Perpignan embraces a laid-back French attitude and fuses it with a passionate Spanish soul.

From Perpignan, it’s a short drive out to the Mediterranean coastline and surrounding vineyards, where you can spend your time soaking up the sun (which, as one of the sunniest places in France, isn’t hard). If you’re looking for an adventure, road trip the Pyrenees is also just around the corner.
Sights to see
This beautiful city in the warm and welcoming South of France is rich in sensory treats, from the aromas of lush vineyards to the sights of the bustling city centre. Perpignan is a fantastic holiday destination for a short break or a long vacation, and the region is perfect for driving.
Perpignan's noticeable Spanish influence stems from the fact that it used to be Catalonia's second city after Barcelona. Many of the locals still speak Catalan, though the city has been officially French since 1659. Nestled near the foothills of the Pyrenees, Perpignan is a beautiful, relaxed city filled with the pastel colours and fragrant smells of the thousands of flowers that decorate its buildings.
The centre itself is a lively and entertaining place, with plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants to distract you for hours on end. For a better understanding of the region and its traditions, as well as for a superb bird's eye view of the city, head to the Musée des Arts et Traditions Populaires Catalans. With some fine exhibits and local artefacts, it's a great way to find out more about this fascinating area.
The nearby mountainous terrain is a stunning place to explore in a hire car, with clifftop castles and friendly local villages peppered throughout the landscape. Only a six-mile drive from Perpignan, are the beautiful beaches and calm waters of the Mediterranean, perfect for cooling off on a hot day.
