Perpignan and Carcassonne Airports.

I,for one, have loved the ease of getting through Perpignan airport on arriving, and have paid the subscription for airport parking for almost all of the 13 years I have had a house in the area. One of my fears, however, was that Ryanair could decide not to fly in during the winter months, as is hap...

I would recommend www.abritel.fr Have used it for 13 years and have always been booked out for July and August. Look up some of the properties in the Ariege on this site to see their availability.

La Voute Etoilee et Les Uns Vendables, Sorede.

Yes. I believe the two ladies who run it opened it earlier this year. It is only open !0a.m. to 8p.m. out of season but open everyday from 10a.m. to midnight in high season. They have a facebook page but no website.

La Voute Etoilee et Les Uns Vendables, Sorede.

13 euros for lunch at this quirky restaurant in the Place de la Republique, Sorede. Menu changes each day but starter of Tarte de Courgettes on a tomato and basil sauce or a crepe with goats' cheese. The tarte was very light. Main course of sardines, a tuna steak or souris d'agneau. Dessert was Tart...

Perpignan Airport

I flew out from Perpignan airport last Sunday evening. Yes, the loos are still in the basement but they are refurbished and I was able to take a lift to them. I was also able to buy a 25cl bottle of Cotes de Rhone and drink it outside with a couple of cigarettes. The people at the information desk h...

We were eating in San Marti when Spain played the Netherlands in the World Cup this year. We were sitting next to a group of Dutch people we chatted to. There were TV screens all round the square and it was a marvellous evening.

I would have been sympathetic if I had received a 'phone call explaining there were problems. Instead, I was fobbed off and told to send a registered letter to an address advertised on their site and it was returned to me in the UK with a 'Not Known at this address.'

Attention Frogbus users

I have been tracking my registered letter to Frogbus, in which I asked for the return of the expenses I incurred in July. The French postman attempted to deliver it but there was no one to sign for it on Friday. It is now up to Frogbus to pick it up or it will be returned to me.
