Let yourself be seduced by Vallespir

Vallespir is located in the Pyrénées-Orientales in the South of France offers its visitors an authentic experience between its mountains and green valleys. Discover a range of French villages worth a visit in this beautiful region of France.


Known for its thermal waters since Antiquity, Amélie-Les-Bains-Palalda is a charming spa resort surrounded by hills with its lush gardens where it is possible to walk there.

Museum of Modern Art in Céret

One of the largest museums in Occitanie, it is being expanded and equipped with a new museography of the permanent collection. Céret is known worldwide for the passage of internationally renowned artists, where art has its place, hence its nickname "The Mecca of Cubism". The Museum of Modern Art was founded in 1950 by Pierre Brune and Franck Burty Haviland, both French painters. It presents works by painters who enjoy worldwide notoriety who have stayed in Céret, such as Picasso, Soutine, Chagall and many big names.

Vallespir, between sea and mountains

This territory close to Spanish Catalonia is located between sea and mountains, and close to everything. Walk the coastal path to enjoy a hike overlooking the sea, treat yourself to a sea trip or swim in the “big blue” to end with a moment of relaxation on the beach.

Côté Pyrénées

On the mountain side, escape and climb the Canigó, the Catalan summit, or board the little yellow train in Villefranche-de-Conflent to access the high mountains and visit the Vauban fortifications in Mont-Louis.

Fontfrède to Céret

Its greenery, its cool fountain, its balcony opening onto the entire Roussillon plain as far as the Mediterranean Sea, its altitude of more than 1,000 meters makes it a privileged site when the summer heat is present.
