A winter sun break
20 Sep 2012
Four of us had a short break in La Dunette and really enjoyed it. The flat is very well-equipped and comfortable with easy access to the town and a Lidl supermarket. Everything worked well and we had no problems. Recommended restaurants were all very good.
Although less well-known than some of its neighbours, Port Vendres is very pleasant, without the crowds others have and also a good base for interesting visits. As Scots we found the Charles Rennie Mackintosh connections and tour very interesting.
