Perpignan France & Vicinity

My wife and I will be staying in a rented home near Perpignan in mid-July with another couple. Any suggestions for daytrips, local sights, restaurants, shopping, etc.? We all enjoy great wines and being outdoors (if it's not ridiculously hot). We know we will probably drive down to Barcelona one day. Beyond that, any suggestions would be welcome. We will be in town from Tuesday July 18 and Tuesday July 25.

You could head inland and visit a few Plus Beaux Villages de France - Castelnou, Eus, Villefranche de Confluent. There are some wonderful old churches to visit - Abbe de St Michel de Cuxa in Prades, Abbe de St Martin de Canigou [ in a marvellous setting with a walk up through the forest], the Prieure de Serrabone [ when we visited there was a relais below selling regional products and we bought a delicious chevre rolled in thyme]. We enjoyed the wines from the Corbieres. A lovely area to visit. Have fun.
