"We had a great time at this lovely apartment - the owner was very friendly
- and we were welcomed with a bottle of sparkling white wine and flowers.
Everything was spotless, the beds comfortable, the kitchen and
dining area top quality. We slept well, with the window open,
waking to bird song from neighboring private park.
After a short walk we found restaurants, and the historic center of Perpignan.
We've already pencilled in when we are going to return"

The outstanding French gothic cathedral of St Jean, which is beautiful to see in and out, and best visited during Easter - where the Procession de la Sanch (Christ's Blood) a 500 year old Catalan tradition is impressive and haunting. Handsome houses and broad squares surround the church (that also boasts the only cemetary cloister in France).
