Destinations

PERP I GNAN

With its central location on a narrow

lane in a pedestrianised area on the

edge of the old quarter, close to the

shops and restaurants on Quai Sébastien

Vauban, the friendly two-star Hotel de la

Loge makes the perfect base for a break

in Perpignan. It’s small with clean rooms

in either traditional or modern decor and

friendly service – and it’s competitively

priced, too. A wrought-iron staircase

leads from the reception area to the 22

rooms over two floors. There’s a small

bar-restaurant and a patio and garden

to relax in, and continental breakfast is

served in the mornings.

PRAGUE

Still a relative newcomer, the

boutique Cosmopolitan Hotel makes

a glamorous impression, from the

uniformed doorman at the entrance,

to the lobby’s white marble floor and

mirrored walls. It offers comfortable rooms

in muted colours and a convenient

location. There’s the Next Door restaurant,

by celebrity Chef Zdenek Pohlreich,

which provides a modern take on Czech

cuisine as well as hearty, American-style

breakfasts in the mornings. Book an

executive room or suite direct and you’ll

receive a free bottle of sparkling wine!

RENNES

For something a little different, head

to Forêt Adrénaline Rennes adventure

park. They have treetop trails to suit

different ages and abilities, from two-

year-olds to adults. If you’re feeling brave,

you can also try out their new attraction,

the TrampÔforest, where you leap and

bounce on a giant net suspended nine

metres above the ground. As well as the

activities, you can climb trees and picnic.

A 2.5-hour session in the adventure park

costs €22 for an adult (14+).
