Mountain hiking


Directly from the house there is access to great hiking trails in Les Albères, the eastern prolongation of the Pyrenees with Puig Neulós as the highest peak (1,256 metres). In the tourists office in Laroque a guide to several trails is available.

The walk down to Laroque is easy and can be done in 45-60 minutes whereas the hike up to the restaurant on Col de L'Ouillat is more demanding and takes the most of a day including a nice lunch with spectacular views into Spain.

The famous GR10 runs along the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean. It passes at Col de L'Ouillat. The hike up plus the last GR10 stage down to Banyuls-sur-Mer can be completed in 10 hours. It is a fantastic but very demanding 30 km hike. From Banyuls take the train to Argèles and a taxi back to the house.
