Where to pick…shall I go for Transylvania, Provence, Cuba, Andalusia?
In the end, I have plumped for Catalonia…
The French region of Pyrenees-Orientales — known to some as Northern Catalonia. The light was just stunning, even in mid September – as you can see in this view taken along the coast, south of Collioure, approaching Spain:
We rented a small gîte up in the hills, and here is the view from our terrace with the Pyrenees beyond
We had heard of Collioure, and we’re determined to see it, and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful light. I loved the narrow streets, washing hanging outside, and Mediterranean life.
A place that entranced me was the tiny Prieuré de Serrabona
A lovely little place with a cloister opening out to the mountains, and some magnificent carvings
