#Cherries have enjoyed the soil and climate of this area for over 150 years, allowing gourmets to enjoy the first French cherries. The Cherry Festival takes place in May in #Céret, and offers two days of events based around a large Cherry market which brings together the local producers. With tastings, stoning and stone-spitting competitions and ‘cherry’ menus in the restaurants, the Catalan town turns red and rocks to the rhythm of the bandas and Sardana dancers. www.loveyourstay.com
