Our village of St. Laurent de Cerdans is in the Vallespir, the most southerly and unspoilt part of France. It is a peaceful area bounded by Spain, the Mediterranean and the Canigou mountain range. It is an attractive historic village in a gorgeous setting with most amenities.

Le Paloumé have a unique position situated in a high valley, La Valleé Verte, which runs north south and leading directly into Spain. It is completely sheltered from the Tranmontaqne which often blows on the French plain/coast and provides a quick, traffic free route to the sandy beaches of Span before the Cost Brava proper. We are equidistant from both the French & Spanish Mediterranean coasts, as well as Perpignan and Figueres.
