- Spend seven nights in the striking Château de Camon and feel free to explore your beautiful surroundings. On four of these nights, dinner is provided at the Château, and you can expect to be impressed by beautiful presentation and fine taste.
- Explore the vast chamber of the Grotte de Niaux, where you can see early humankind’s handiwork: some of the most famous prehistoric art in the world. See some incredibly well preserved portrayals of horses, ibex, stags and bison, still as fresh as the day they were painted.
- Visit the charming town of Camprodon with its fortified bridge and romantic town square, just over the border into Spain, high in the Pyrenees mountains.
- Explore Collioure, home of Picasso, Matisse, Derain, Dufy, Chagall, Marquet, and many other painters, writers, poets and singers, and on your way back to the Château, tour one of the ancient Cathar strongholds that once dotted the region
