The most popular route from Benelux is via
Luxembourg: Brussels - Namen - Luxembourg - Metz - Nancy
- Dijon - Lyon - Valence - Orange - Nîmes - Montpellier
- Beziers - Narbonne - Perpignan.
A good alternative is the A75
via Paris, Clermont-Ferrand and Millau (over the famous
bridge). You then come via Beziers
on the A9. This is also the cheapest route, because you pay
(toll) for large parts of the motorway. It is also the shortest
Our prefferred way is to follow
directions for Bordeaux, to come via Limoges, direction
via Carcassone and Narbonne on the A9.
The last motorway
exit on the A9 is Le Boulou, this is the final before
the Spanish border: so be careful!
You then take the road for Céret, Amélie-les-Bains
and Arles-sur-Tech (in the direction of Prats-de-Mollo).
This is the D115. After Arles-sur-Tech continue
up the D115 following
signs for Prats-de-Mollo. Be careful not to miss
the road for ‘Montferrer’ to your right
3.3 miles (6 km) after exiting Arles-sur-Tech: this is
windy ride up the valley from this turnoff is approx
4 miles. A sign (Mas del Roure) on your right welcomes
you to the Farm via a sandy 150m
