Our region is one of the largest wine producing areas in the world and in recent years there has been a huge investment in upgrading both the vineyards and wineries. This has resulted in a vast improvement in the quality of the wines which now hold their own with the best of French and New World wines. An enjoyable day out would be to take a guided wine tour (in English) with a local company. For full information visit www.thefrenchwinetourco.com

Spain is also very close by and in a day you can easily visit Figueres with the eccentric Dali Museum and then on to Cadaques/Portlligat to visit Dali’s home which is now also a museum and then stroll the small streets of one the best preserved villages on the Costa Brava.

Just further down the coast at Sant Mardi (just beside L’Escala) you can visit the excavated Greek/Roman port town of Empuries with a very fine museum displaying the artefacts and history of the town. When you are exhausted by all that culture you relax on a fine golden sand beach just beside the excavations or lunch in the pleasant village of Sant Marti.

Barcelona is about two hours away on the motorway and is one of the most interesting and exciting cities in Europe with a huge range of sights to visit - the Picasso Museum and Gaudi’s Sacreda Famila Cathedral, the Aquarium and of course the Rambla together with great shopping.
