Like a child at play"

Spring was in the air

A group of us trekked along the coastal paths between Cap Bear and Banyuls on Saturday in tee shirts and shorts. We dined al fresco in a fab restaurant in Port Vendres afterwards and enjoyed a 3 course sumptious feast in La Tramontane for a mere 16euros50. Visiting friends from the UK were astounded at the value for money and the fact that a mere two hours from the UK, they were basking in the sunshine and lashing on the suncream! Coffee in Collioure finished off the day perfectly and we all headed home replete, thinking that summer has arrived.

This morning we woke up to temperatures of 1 degrees and the snow is now falling heavily and sticking. The good news is that it is also snowing in the ski slopes and now that the school regional holidays are over, the slopes will be quiet. Just over an hour from Perpignan, we can be clicking on our skis and enjoying the fresh air of the Pyrenees. Weeee Hawww

It's a lovely time of the year to visit the region and to take in a bit of sunshine, a bit of skiing, a bit of culture and fine dining and of course a little bit of wine.
At the French Tour Co, a wine tour combined with a days skiing can be arranged with all transport, accommodation and meals included. Contact us for further information.
We now only cater for large groups of 10 or more, but do contact us if you group is smaller as we can regroup smaller numbers.
See you on the slopes!
