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.
Perpignan has a real Spanish-French feel about it, epitomised in the Place de Republique which is the central public square; reasonable restaurants are abundant here. The St Jean Cathedral and the famous Perpignan Train Station exude the town's architectural character traits.
Helping to define the city's high-brow personality, the Guitares au Palais Music Festival and the Photo-Journalism Festival are two of the year's biggest events and attract thousands of tourists.
If you're hiring a car in Perpignan the Chateau de Queribus in Cucugnan is just 43km using the D1 - continue along this road and you'll find the Chateau de Peyrepertuse. Rent a car in Perpignan and the Spanish border is only 30km away and ready to be explored.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
