The Languedoc-Roussillon region

Languedoc-Roussillon is perfectly positioned between the Mediterranean to the east where the beautiful sandy beaches provide long days by the sea, and the Pyrenees to the west, which offer a wealth of walking and cycling opportunities, not to mention skiing in the winter!

This region is a delight; the "gorges de la Castellane" provides lush green scenery, with Mount Canigou dominating the skyline and the Pyrenees visible in the distance. You can be swimming in the sea in the morning, and hiking in the mountains in the afternoon. There are even thermal hot springs, so if you would like to combine the two activities we can suggest a hike AND a swim in the mountains! It really does offer you everything!

There is a lake in the local town of Vinca, with beaches, from which you can swim, sail or wind-surf, or you could just visit the popular open air swimming pools in Prades and Vernet les Bains.

Weather: This area benefits from being in the sunniest region of France, and enjoys warm, sunny weather from March all the way through to October (more than 300 days of sunshine) . November and December are cooler but still with sunshine. January, February and March are great skiing months (45 mins drive to the ski resorts).

The Pyrenees Orientales has much to offer art lovers : the world famous Pablo Casals music festival is held in and around Prades (only 10 minutes drive away) during the summer and is attended by world famous musicians. Perpignan hosts “Jazzebre” an international jazz festival in October. This area has also been the home to many famous artists including Picasso, Matisse, Chagall and surrealist artist Salvador Dali who declared Perpignan railway station “the centre of the univers”. You can see examples of their work on show in Ceret, Perpignan and the picturesque seaside resort of Collioure.

Prades

In north Catalonia, the town of Molitg les bains is in a privileged location halfway between the Mediterranean shores of the Languedoc Roussillon region the Cerdagne and Capcir's high snowy peaks that rise up to heights of nearly 3000m.

The village covers two magnificent sites:

• the spa nestled in the heart of the "gorge de la Castellane" at the foot of the medieval fortress of Paracoll's ruins.

• The old town, 800 meters from the thermal baths and 600 meters above sea level on a hilly plateau that enjoys sunshine for more than 300 days a year, facing the mount Canigou.

In the village you will find restaurants to suit all pockets.

Molitg les Bains is situated within 5 minutes of the local market town of Prades where you will find everything from supermarkets to a large, busy traditional square with bars and restaurants. Prades hosts a bustling market on Tuesday mornings and a smaller farmers market every Saturday morning.

For music lovers, Prades boasts the internationally famous Pablo Casals music festivals with concerts staged in various venues including the impressive Baroque church at the center of the town (which itself boasts the largest baroque altar in France).

The walks in the area are many, varied and well marked, stroll around the village or take a hike following some of the most beautiful trails in France. Visit the Tourist information for free leaflets on local walks.
