TELEVISIO DE Catalunya (TV3) and Spanish production house Sweatbox have inked a $US 5 million animation co-production deal with Singapore’s Monstrou Studio.

The deal marks the first international co-production between Singapore and a Spanish company.

IT’S the last stop on the Cote Vermeille before France spills into Spain. It has some of the best diving in Europe and hidden coves that were once the delight of pirates and smugglers.

WITH the exception of the Central Hotel, Cerbere’s hotels are only open during the season from April to October.
