The Languedoc-Roussillon / Pyrenees-Orientales region
Caramany is located in Pyrénées-Orientales in the Languedoc Roussillon region of France. The closest airport to Caramany is Perpignan Airport (24 km).
Along with the Cote d'Azur, this is the part of the country which gets more sunshine than elsewhere in France. With easy access to the sea and river swimming, it is perfect for sunbathers and water-lovers, not far from eaux-vives activity as rafting and canyoning are available.
Historically, the area is famous for the Cathars, a breakaway faith from the Catholic church. Cruelly put down, retracing this sad chapter of history through the numerous Cathar castles in the area is fascinating.The Château de Montségur is probably the best known of all Cathar Castles.
Languedoc-Roussillon is France has around 700,000 acres under vines and is the single biggest wine-producing region in the world, being responsible for more than a third of France's total wine production. The quality and price of the wine in this still largely underexposed area will be a very pleasant shock.
Many different sports activities possible including scuba diving, canyoning, mountain biking, bike hire, sea kayaking, fishing (sea or river), windsurfing, kite surfing, horse riding, etc.
The Caramany area
Caramany is a haven for those looking to wind down. With a population of 150 and next to no traffic, village life is simple, intimate and peaceful. Madame Aubert pulls up every morning on the square in her little white van, selling baguettes, croissants and cakes.
Pop into the “Mairie” (Mayor’s office) to see if there’s an upcoming fete or petanque (French boules) tournament you can join in with. Pick up a map there which outlines walks in the surrounding hills. Have a drink and game of pool with the villagers at Patrick’s café a few doors up. In summer many animations are set up by the town council: Feu de St Jean, petanque competition, village barbecue, small concert and lottery.
