Between the sea and the mountains, Amélie-Les-Bains which obtained in 2005 the « Holiday Green Station » label is located steps from everything.
You can walk to the Gorges of Mondony which start just behind the hotel. Not very far, it’s worth visiting Palalda a small medieval village with its narrow paved streets. You can also go up to Montbolo for an unforgettable, panoramic view.

Only 30-minute drive, the long and large Mediterranean sand beaches stretch out along Canet and St Cyprien Plage without forgetting the wonderful fishport of Collioure (with its small creeks) immortalized by Matisse and Derain at the beginning of the 20th century.
These artists can be found in the Modern Art Museum of Céret along with the works of Picasso, Soutine and many other artists who stayed in the Vallespir.

The Spanish border is 11 miles away and in Figueres you will visit the famous Museum devoted to Dali.

Don’t forget to discover Perpignan, the capital of North Catalonia and the Palace of the Kings of Mallorca, the former Catalan Kings’ residence.
