Situated on a wine estate overlooking the Baie de Paulilles, Le Clos de Paulilles epitomises classic but informal French dining. Each course from the farm's one fixed menu is accompanied by a different type of their own wine. As you feast on the (very) local produce, watch the evening sun set over the Pyrenees. Walk off the indulgences of the evening with a stroll along the adjacent beach.
This "département" (county) allows you to travel anywhere on long distance bus for just 1€. So you can travel from Perpignan to the ski slopes or to visit the excellent Modern Art Museum in Ceret.
They are also running tests for local trains for 1€ as well.
Charming B&B run by knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating hosts. Excellent food - including a wonderful vegetarian menu for my wife, very comfortable and clean rooms and an idyllic spot to rest while touring the area. Great value for money - far less expensive than you'd think - with no unexpected extras on the bill. A very refreshing change from soulless hotel chains!
While staying in Collioure (nr Perpignan) and discovering my partner didn't like the local wine made from Grenache grapes while holidaying in Grenache grape country we decided to visit the Lafage Vineyard. We had tasted one of their gorgeous wines in our local in north London and we decided to try and find the vineyard which was relatively close to Perpignan to stock up for the remainder of our holiday.
Not having a car and forgetting the map we endured a couple of long and dusty bus journeys lasting several hours across country with connecting stops in the middle of nowhere to finally to get to the general area where the vineyard is located. But to get to the actual location from the bus stop it was another two miles - along a motorway.
We arrived dusty, parched and grumpy at lunchtime while it was closed. We were not happy! After lunch and on opening we received a warm and generous welcome along with an animated (and equally generous) degustation of some of the most truly delicious French wine from the Lafage vineyard. We bought two cases and got the bus back.
Next time, we’ll plan ahead but if we had a car it would have taken twenty minutes from Perpignan, which is much easier than the route we took and you can buy more of their delicious wines that way.
