The station is between the two villages, slightly nearer Enveitg. For those who wish to spend longer in the mountains before moving on, here's a quick run-down of what is around - and it is not a lot.
Strange area - no bars or cafés!
Right opposite the station is a pharmacy. It's the only shop within 1km. Open 0900 - 1215 and 1430 t0 1900, closed Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.
For the village of Enveitg, turn right on leaving the station and follow the signs. The village is about 1km (2/3rds a mile) along the road, slightly uphill.
In Enveitg, there is a bar/pizzeria about 10 minutes walk from the station. There is also a supermarket (VivaL) open these hours: Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 0800 - 1230 and 1600 - 1900; Wednesday and Sunday 0800 - 1230. Mondays closed all day.
Latour de Carol is a little further away, about 1.5km (3/4 mile) but has more to offer. Turn left on leaving the station. Flat walk.
Restaurante Peypoch (somewhat uprmarket) in the Place du village; Auberge Catalan on the N20 main road nearby. There is a supermarket VivaL also on the main road open daily 0730 - 1930 in summer at least.
Latour de Carol is also the end station for the Petit Train Jaune' the celebrated narrow gauge railway that winds its way through the mountains from Villefranche. Waiting travellers might see one of the trains, but services are very infrequent. For more about Le Petit Train Jaune, visit http://www.ter-sncf.com/Regions/Langu...
