Studio Vert, your perfect base to explore the Pyrénées
Updated: Mar 4, 2020
Accommodation at Studio Vert offers the perfect base where you can fuel up with our vegan breakfast before heading out to explore our amazing region and come back to a hearty vegan buffet on your return.
We have put together 3 self-guided tours which are a fantastic way to explore the many fascinating and unique locations and historical sites of the French and Spanish sides of Catalonia.
This week we start with the Explorer Tour to help you discover the perfectly preserved medieval villages, famous market towns and vineyards, incredible landscapes and many delights that the area of Catalonia offers. We can guide you on arrival at Studio Vert and we'll recommend some vegan pitstops for you to try.
THE EXPLORER TOUR : Itinerary
Day 1 Arrive in Laroque-des-Ablères
We meet you at Studio Vert in the Albera mountains for a welcome glass of local vegan wine where you can unpack your bags, settle and enjoy magnificent views as well as our buffet-style dinner.
Day 2 Perpignan city
This beautiful medieval town is the capital of the French Catalonia region and heart of the wine area. Make time to visit the Palais des Rois de Majorques and the Cathedral St Jean Baptiste before visiting our favourite vegan stops : Frida’s or 2VB (the 2veganboys) for lunch.
Day 3 A smorgasbord of possibility from Villefranche de Conflent : ramparts, Fort, C
aves or yellow train, the choice is yours
This packed day will see you leave early to get to the medieval village of Villefranche de Conflent. After a stroll through the town’s cobbled streets you can head to visit the ramparts or you can visit the Fort Libéria that was recently inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Caves of les canalettes, deemed one of the most beautiful caves in France are well worth a visit and great during hot days!!.
Villefranche-de-Conflent is also the Yellow Train’s starting point, a symbol of Catalonia and its colours. A Trip on "Le petit train jaune" is surprising and a must-do.
Day 4 Figueres, Spain
The Town of Figueres is only 40 mins South of Studio Vert and is the site of the Dalí Theatre-Museum which houses the largest collection of Dalí-related art objects. The outside alone is a work of art! Book online and skip the line!! For a perfect end to your visit grab some lunch or dinner at Integral Restaurant, a vegetarian/vegan restaurant just a stone-throw away from the museum which has a decent wine list and delicious food. Check the opening times before heading out!
Day 5 Visit of the Byrrh Caves
