“We like guests to feel welcome here. Our top priorities are sincerity and simplicity”.

Catherine and Pascal much prefer things to be genuine. They have not, however, forgotten the importance of sophistication and comfort. Their 3-star hotel near Perpignan, is situated between the sea and the mountains, is therefore home to 36 pleasant rooms, making it the perfect place to relax in a bit of peace and quiet.

A place for rest and relaxation, the charming village of Le Boulou - only a stone’s throw from Perpignan - is also full of all sorts of discoveries just waiting to be made.
RELAXING IN LE BOULOUNestled between the Mediterranean and the Albera Massif in Pyrénées-Orientales, Le Boulou is a charming little spa resort. Its hot springs are especially good for coronary artery diseases and problems with the digestive system. They surface in the lush green setting of an exotic-style park. A thermal spa offering beauty and well-being treatments welcomes all those looking to unwind, for a perfect moment of serenity and relaxation.
WALKS AROUND PERPIGNANPerpignan is not far from the hotel, and easy to get to. The Roussillon capital has a number of attractions that are well worth a visit, including the Palace of the Kings of Majorca and its museums - featuring works by Maillol, for example - the Third Order Chapel in the Dominican Convent, Perpignan Cathedral, the Notre-Dame-des-Anges Chapel, the Town Hall and Hôtel Pams, and of course the iconic Castillet.
EXPLORING THE CÔTE VERMEILLEThe Côte Vermeille begins in the south of Pyrénées-Orientales, alongside Argelès-sur-Mer. Here, the long, sandy beaches of the Languedoc and Roussillon coastlines give way to rocky creeks, where the waves die away. It is home to fishing harbours and marinas, tucked away in coves protected from passing storms. The Côte Vermeille stretches all the way to Portbou on the Spanish border, via Collioure, Port-Vendres, Banyuls-sur-Mer and Cerbère.
