THREE DAYS IN TAUTAVEL.


During my trip to Paris, I had the opportunity to visit Tautavel, a small village near Perpignan in the South of France. Adrienne's good family friends Anne and Gerard offered to host us in their home, and I'm so so glad we took them up on it! Visiting Tautavel was such a wonderful experience, made especially so because of our wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. The biggest thank you to Anne, Gerard and their son Antoine for showing us such a special time!

Perpignan is a quick hour and fifteen minute flight from Paris ORLY. We hopped a flight down on Monday evening, and immediately when you walk off the plane you know you're somewhere VERY different than Paris. Perpignan is situated near the Mediterranean Sea, just on the other side of the Pyrenees Mountains from Spain (Barcelona is just a 2 hour drive, if you have the time!). The climate and landscape is a beautiful hybrid of mediterranean, tropical and mountain. It's truly unlike anywhere I'd been before.
