Which WiFi Provider is best in Amelie-les-Bains?

I will be staying in Amelie-les-Bains for 6 weeks from mid-July. My laptop has WiFi capability which I would like to use in my apartment [in Centre Ville] using a dongle from one of the big Internet providers using a Pay-As-You-Go plan. I come from Australia so I will only need the connection for th...

John, When I say Ceret is cheap and quiet, I mean relative to the coast in high season. I have found a very reasonable, pleasant, quiet, ground floor apartment there, just in case the one in Amelie falls through, though it is about 2 km from the village centre. I have yet to hear from the owner. As ...

Santiago, You're quite right. I am a cheapskate. Let me explain. I have been to this region before, but only briefly - to Collioure and Montpellier - and marked it as a place I would like to see more of on a future visit. In the past [the last 5 trips] I have based myself solely in Paris with TGV tr...

John, You may well be right, though I had planned to take three train trips, of about 3 or 4 days each, to other parts of France - Brittany, The Alps and the Ardech perhaps - using a Eurail Pass over the two-month period. The local area itself, which I can access by bus to its terminus at La Preste,...

The winter timetable has 11 buses daily from Amelie-les-Bains except on Sundays when there are only four. They start around 5:30 am and return from Perpignan around 8:30 pm. The summer timetable may have even more. It comes into effect on the 2nd July. I hope to arrive in Amelie-les-Bains on the 1st...

thumbelina,

It seems I didn't explain myself adequately. I intend to do all my bike riding in the 'flat section' while living in the hilly section. I hope to travel between these two sections by bus.

Great Detail

G'day again, All this first hand information is invaluable. It makes me more determined than ever to take the apartment I have found in Amilie-les-Bains - it's in Avenue du Vallespir and overlooks a small market square, somewhere near the Cafe de Paris. I haven't checked it out yet - other than what...

Many Thanks

Bonjour a tous, Well that was quick. Many, many thanks for your valuable responses. I would very much like to stay in Amilie-les-Bains if it is at all feasible. As long as I can get to and from the village by regular public transport, I can do my walking, cycling and swimming on the coastal plain. I...

Public Transport Around Pyrénées Orientales

Could someone fill me in about local transport in Pyrénées Orientales. I am trying to decide whether or not to rent an apartment in Amilie-les-Bains-Palalda for the coming summer [July & August] and thought forum members may be able to help me make up my mind. I will not have a car in France and wil...
