Perpignan is a destination for true South of France connoisseurs. Set in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Perpignan is not too far geographically from the renowned Cote d'’Azur, but whilst the Riviera is often colonised by fancy hotels and expensive restaurants, Perpignan has retained its sense of Southern authenticity; the Roman/Mediterranean influence is all-pervasive and the food and wine lists are excellent. Perpignan is at the foot of the Pyrenees, and therefore the ideal base from which to explore both Catalonia and Languedoc-Roussillon making car hire in Perpignan popular. Hiring a car in Perpignan is available at Perpignan Airport, the city centre and arrival destinations across the South of France.
