Is home to a famous Catalonian restaurant and a good farmhouse cheese maker.
Is a mile from the bakery and the main road that runs along the Tech river valley from Argelès-sur-Mer, Collioure to Ceret and 3 mins to the junction of the main France Spain autoroute. The cities of Perpignan & Figueres are 30 mins drive, Girona & Bezier are 1hour, Montpellier and Barcelona 2 hours. Coastal resorts of Collioure, Argelès-sur-Mer, Saint-Cyprien are 30 minutes drive. Popular with those that know the area is the Plan d’Eau at the next village of Saint-Jean-Pla-de-Corts, (5mins). It is a very pleasant lake side park used for swimming, fishing, boating and general relaxation.
Vives is easy to get to either by car on the main French Spanish auto route, by the newly constructed TGV, or by the several airports that are approximately an hours travel time by car, that provide links to the UK and the rest of Europe. Ideally located to explore the Pyrenees Oriental and all it has to offer from Greek and Roman archeology to medieval villages & cities, with cafes, & markets & churches & castles from mountains & forests to Coast and beaches and from Modern art galleries to museums festivals & world class exhibitions & concerts. If you like walking, cycling, canyoning, bird watching, fishing, photography, or painting, touring by car or motorbike and even if you prefer to spend a day or two relaxing on a beach or the shore of a lake surrounded by mountains you will never be short of things to do or see.
The Pyrenees Oriental is in French Catalonia with the mountains on one side and the Mediterranean on the other and less than 10 miles to the south of the Spanish border so you also have easy access to explore the coast cities, cuisine Spanish Catalonian culture.
This area enjoys a great climate with over 300 day of sunshine per year. This climate is ideal for wine production combined with the fertile valleys and coastal plains make it the garden of Roussillon and is famous not only for its excellent wine but abundant harvests of flavorful sweet juicy fruit. It is heralded by the early harvest of cherries from Ceret and its famous cherry festival.

These are the reasons we relocated to area and we are keen to share with others and help them to enjoy what we have found.

I am a potter originally from Derbyshire but until we moved to France, home was in a small village near the middle of Hadrian's Wall.
For a number of years we have enjoyed touring holidays in Europe and more usually in France. We stayed in many good B&Bs & gites but most lacked one or two elements that made them perfect. For example you are staying in a B&B or hotel and you fancy using some local produce to cook yourself something but you don’t have access to a kitchen, or you are staying in a holiday let & you don’t have access to WIFI or if on some days you wished there was an option of breakfast or a simple evening meals provided. We have used our experiences to make our ideal and comfortable base to enjoy your holiday while you visit & explore this very special part of the world. We can even provide itineraries, suggestions & recommendation of great days out from us and from previous visitors
