Deep in Southern France, Perpignan is close to the Spain border and looks across to the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean coast. It has scenic walks and an intriguing mix of French and Spanish culture, and it’s only an hour to the ski slopes. No matter what hotel you stay in, there’s something special to see nearby.
