General

  • Family-friendly site at the foot of the Pyrenees
  • Five-minute walk from village; fifteen-minute drive to the sea
  • Pools, shop and playground on site

If you have trouble picking between mountains and sea, this Pyrenean site will tick all boxes. The 12th-century castle nearby and the mighty peaks further behind beckon visitors to explore this richly-varied corner of France’s Pyrénées-Orientales region. Meanwhile, the amenities close by assure a relaxing stay on a peaceful tree-lined site.

A grocery and bakery make the daily shop a doddle and the menu at the bar offers a tempting alternative to cooking. Younger visitors who dare to say they’re bored can be directed towards the indoor and outdoor pools, the games room and playground.

The village of Laroque-des-Albères is a five-minute stroll away or you can hire bikes at the site to explore the castle and beyond. Supermarkets are a quarter of an hour’s drive away in Argelès-sur-Mer.

Local attractions

As the name suggests, you’ll find the sea in Argelès-sur-Mer along with wide beaches safe for bathing. This buzzing French resort is a popular spot for watersports and the gentler pastime of people-watching in the seafront cafés. The old fishing village of Collioure (twenty minutes’ drive) shows you a different coast altogether. The salmon-pink town with its hilltop château and seafront fort is undeniably popular (blame Matisse and his crowd) but it still comes with a peaceful vibe for you to contemplate the coast.

Equally quiet and inviting are the residents of Vallée des Tortues (five minutes from the site), a small, family-friendly nature park occupied by tortoises and turtles from all over the world. Nature on a grander scale can be encountered in the Parc Naturel Régional des Pyrénées-Catalan (Prades is the closest entry point, an hour’s drive away). This wild and diverse landscape of mountains and lakes is teeming with birds and insects and laced with trails for hiking, biking and horse riding.

A shorter drive of half an hour takes you to Pic de Néolous, where a gentle and wheelchair-friendly path takes visitors past smugglers’ routes, waterfalls and bandit trails to a splendid mountain view. There's a bar, toilet facilities and picnic tables here too: every box ticked, again.
