Arboussols is a picturesque village in the heart of a case of scrub surrounded by numerous terraces and ancestral culture.

Its location between the Mediterranean and the mountain gives it a special attraction and the panoramic view surrounding it never leaves anyone indifferent.

Separated Canigou (2784 m) through the valley of the Tet, which flows 300 meters below, the village has managed to exploit its many tourist attractions after the vineyards and herds of goats had started to become more rare.

Inhabited since the twelfth century, this place has managed to preserve inconveniences of modern life and remain peaceful.
