Saint André - a pretty Catalan village

Saint André, which is found in the sun-soaked region of Languedoc-Roussillon in the south of France, is an historic Catalan village which originated from a Benedictine monastery back in the Middle Ages. The village has a lovely setting, amid the vineyards and cherry orchards which characterise this area, and is only a few minutes away from the stunning Vermillion coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

All amenities on offer

Saint André is a peaceful village, but one which offers good amenities. Within the village you can find all the usual service industries, so you don't have to go far to find an electrician, a hairdresser, a mechanic or whatever else you might need! Saint André also has schools, health care, a good selection of shops and a handful of great restaurants where you can enjoy the vibrant flavours of the local Catalan cuisine and taste the excellent wines produced on your doorstep.

Enjoy the twice-weekly markets

The lifestyle of the village is generally pretty tranquil, but there is a full programme of cultural events which tends to liven things up! Market days are Thursdays and Saturdays, and if you haven't yet had the pleasure of shopping at a genuine French market, make sure you get up early to catch the best of the bargains. Being typically Catalan, and never wanting to miss the opportunity to throw a party, the village has many fêtes and festivals, with everything from sardine suppers and wine festivals to petanque and tennis tournaments happening throughout the year.

Admire the sculptures at the Abbey Church

Saint André has a long history, and if you enjoy seeing historic buildings and monuments there are one or two here that are worthy of your time. Whatever you do, take an hour or so to visit the Romanesque Abbey Church which has some lovely marble sculptures. The village has a very good art gallery, and it is perhaps worth mentioning that this region has a long established affinity with art, having many famous names taking their inspiration from the beautiful towns and landscapes of Catalan France.

Explore the nearby fishing village of Collioure

For days out you will find yourself spoilt for choice, as the region has so much to offer. Spain and the lively resorts of the Costa Brava are only a short drive away, with the wonderful city of Barcelona just a little further, easily accessible for a day trip. However, even closer to home (almost next door!) you have the breathtakingly pretty town of Collioure, a Catalan fishing village whose beauty has attracted artists such as Picasso and Matisse, and where the famed Collioure anchovies, freshly caught and prepared in delicious Catalan fashion, simply must be tried!

Taste Ceret's cherries and the area's fine wines

The lovely cherry town of Ceret is also a near neighbour. Here the cherry blossom in spring provides a visual treat only rivalled by the taste sensation of the ripe cherries which abound in May and early June. A little further away you can visit the provincial capital city of Perpignan, or enjoy a day in glorious Carcassonne, city of the Cathars. The vineyards that cover so much of the land in Languedoc-Roussillon are also good to visit, and there are many wine domains and private producers who will be only too happy to arrange tours and tastings.

Sports fans will be in their element

Finally, sports fans will find almost everything their hearts desire in the area, and with the possibilities for activities offered by the Med, the mountains, the gorges and rivers that are the stunning geography of the region, they will never be at a loss to find something to do.

Perpignan is the nearest airport, and has flights from the UK with Ryanair, Bmibaby and Flybe. Béziers and Carcassonne are nearby too, and are also served by Ryanair, while Girona in Spain is another option. The TGV runs to Perpignan from Paris, and also from Perpignan to Barcelona, which makes train travel simple. Drivers will find the village from the D618. The nearest major road is the A9.
