"South of France" Top 5 Page for this destination Perpignan by JulesH

Perpignan Travel Guide: 97 reviews and 237 photos

This page is about all the palces I've visited in the south of france region. My family is from France, so I spent most of my childhood travelling with my parents and brother around the villages and smaller towns of France. It was my mother's aim to get to know the real France, and to that end, it never really felt as if we were in a foreign country as the townsfolk we met always treated us us as their own family! I will always love France, and fully expect my parents to retire there...hmmm, a holiday home!

    Hi Jules I seen a photo from you on Virtualtourist with the caption the coolest lake on the planet (south of France). You didn't state where?? I live in Perpignan and have swam at some similar spots outside Lezignan but like the look of your photo. Are you able to help me please? Ian

    I have a feeling you can show us France that we need to know. Hope you write some more about your parents' homeland. Thanks!!

    Grottes de Clamouse seems very interesting, I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in the area!
