Bienvenue to Perpignan, the friendly French Catalonian city nestled in the Eastern Pyrenees. As the last major stop before Spain, its strong Catalan roots and proximity to the border gives this lovely town a real Spanish flavour.  And only two hours from Southampton Airport, breeze through the airport to a city where the sun always shines – even in winter.

Perpignan’s architecture is as warm as its welcome, and the city centre has shady quarters to help escape the noonday sun as well as great eating. Unlike anywhere else in France, Perpignan serves up Catalan tapas alongside traditional French dishes. Explore its cathedral, and museums then hop on the little yellow train and take to the hills, Perpignan is a land that’s ready for adventure.

Getting there

With a flight time of just under two hours from Southampton with Flybe, Perpignan airport is only 10 minutes from the city centre.

With a local shuttle bus to the city centre you’ll also find a taxi rank directly in front of Arrivals, as well as all major car hire companies – but do book in advance.
