Prades, France (cc)

Prades is a village nestled at the base of a snow-capped mountain, Mont Canigou. If you can’t decide between the beach or the mountains, if you can’t decide between France and Spain, you could hardly find a better stop. It is a short distance from the shore, 2½ hours from bustling Barcelona, near the principality of Andorra, and close to several popular ski resorts.

Prades is the heart of Le Conflent, a confluence of several rivers, and it makes a wonderful base for activities, whether you want to go white-water rafting, mountain biking, horseback riding or simply taking a nature hike.
