Les Fenetres du Soleil is a beautiful guest house in the tiny, hill-top village of Arboussols. Located 40 minutes west of Perpignan, and 15 minutes east of Prades, Les Fenetres du Soleil overlooks a verdant valley and across to the stunning Pic du Canigou.
Built from an old stone stable, hosts Claudia and Francis have created a comfortable, clean and peaceful place from which to explore the fascinating countryside. I highly recommend renting a car in Perpignan, as Arboussols is not serviced by public transport. This will give you the freedom to visit the amazing medieval castles of Peyrepertuse and Queribus, the town of Villefranche-de-Conflent, the abbey of St-Martin, and the many nearby vineyards, just for an example. There is so much to see and do in this beautiful corner of France I suggest spending at least three to four days.
Francis is a wealth of information, and can recommend several excellent restaurants, such as La Casa d'Olivier in Catllar, L'Auberge du Moulin near Peyrepertuse, and the excellent haute cuisine of the Loges du Jardin d'Aymeric. He will gladly write you an itinerary for a day's excursion while you enjoy a tasty petit déjeuner on the outdoor terrace, gazing peacefully at Canigou. You will want to stay forever.
