St Laurent de Cerdans is located in the Vallespir, the most southerly and sunny valley in France. The village is a leisurely ten minute stroll from La Farga. It is a picturesque French village with many Catalan features situated in the midst of the Pyrenees Chestnut Forests. It was built on the local timber and weaving industries over the last two centuries. Weaving and Espadrille making can be seen at several artisan craft works and at the world famous Les Toiles du Soleil, where the colourful fabrics and products are also available to buy. The village has all the amenities you require including a number of bars and restaurants with views of the Pyrenees all around. There is also a large outdoor municipal pool open during the summer months, which becomes the meeting place for children on holidays in the area. The Vallespir is dotted with charming French holiday towns and villages. Coustouges, Montferrer, Corsavy, Amelie Le Bains, Prats de Mollo and the beautiful town of Ceret being the highlights.
On the Spanish side driving east from La Farga is the Alt Emporda region where there are many equally charming villages, such as Tapis, Macanet de Cabrenys and Darnius tucked away in the riverside forests offering gastronomic options for lunch and dinner using the incredible seasonal ingredients of the region.
