PV also gets mentioned in another recent non-fiction book by Rosemary Bailey called "Love and War in the Pyrenees: A story of courage, fear and hope 1939-1944", an excellent account of the Spanish Retirada and the French experience of Occupation and Resistance. this will a...

Port-Vendres

PV was once described to us as being, "a bit rough round the edges" and it is sometimes compared unfavourably to Collioure, its closest neighbour. It's not as pretty as Collioure but visitors will always find somewhere to park, which is certainly not the case with Collioure. Like Collioure, it has a...

Port-Vendres

Hello Good luck in your new home. We've had a second home in Port-Vendres for about 9 years now and get over as often as possible. We have never regretted our decision to buy and hope to spend even more time there in future. Unlike some other places locally, it is almost always possible to find a re...

We used Frogbus reasonably often when we could fly from Gatwick into Girona and were never let down. I last used them in January when flying from and to Luton and again everything went smoothly.

Hi Heldrew Why not take the coastal road from PV to Figueres and visit Teatre Museu Dali? The children will be fascinated. There is also the Museu del Joquet de Catalunya (Toy Museum of Catalonia), Spain's largest and oldest toy museum. Infact, you might leave the car at Figueres and take the train ...

Kathy You may wish to try Bistrot Le Cortal in Vernet-le-Bains which is owned and run by Dave and Tiffany, an English couple, who have lived in France for a long time. It is by no means a vegetarian restaurant but there are always vegetarian options on the menu. We have eaten there a number of times...

We have never regretted our purchase and hope to spend more time in France in the future, whilst maintaining our main home in West Sussex. I have always been an avid reader of Anglophone-Direct but have never ...
