A few hours drive to higher altitude and it is clear why it is wonderful to be blessed with both the mountains and the Mediterranean in our département, the Pyrénées-Orientales. As snow melts, the rivers of Cerdagne swell and a profusion of wildflowers signal the arrival of spring, almost two months later than in our part of Roussillon.
