A family-campsite close to the beach
If you should remember a campsite in the beach resort of Argelès sur Mer, in the Pyrenees Orientales, it is this one 'Les Galets'. With its 4 stars and family atmosphere, it guarantees a successful stay on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Settled in a garden of Eden, two steps from the beach, the pitches and rentals of campsite Les Galets blend into the heart of a tropical and Mediterranean vegetation. The lawned surfaces ranging from 80 to 90 m² and shaded by palm trees welcome campers, but also tourists who've chosen to rent. Because this establishment has lots of these. There is indeed a wide range of modern, comfortable and spacious mobile homes, but also superbly equipped wooden chalets, with covered terraces permitting to take a drink or a meal outside protected from the sun.
The facilities proof that Les Galets is perfectly suitable for families, but it also offers many services to improve the well-being of all. We keep in mind the hair salon, the beauty salon and its beauty treatments, the tattoo salon, the grocery store, the bar-restaurant, etc. It also proposes a children's club, to occupy the youngest and give parents some free time!
320 days of sunshine per year
Argelès sur Mer is one of the sunniest towns of France. With 320 days of sunshine per year, sunscreen is the indispensable accessory of your holiday in this seaside resort and this, whenever the season. Another essential accessory, is of course the swimsuit. Campsite Les Galets is located just a few steps from the sea (1.5 km) and from a huge beach with a total length of 7 km! If this latter is the perfect place to practice nautical activities, camping residents can also enjoy the water park of Les Galets to swim.
This water park, listening to the sweet name of "Lagon", is an area of 1,000 m² of which 400 are occupied by different pools, including a heated pool, a progressive pool, a paddling pool, a slow streaming river and whirlpools.
The water park is the true heart of the campsite. Besides the many aquatic activities organised here during the day (aquagym lessons, water-polo tournaments, etc.), at night it can turn into a place where various shows and other evening entertainment are organized, including the famous "Pool Party" during high season...
A holiday in Catalan Country
The camping-club Les Galets enjoys a privileged location. Situated in the community of Argelès sur Mer, known to be one of the most beautiful and lively beach resorts of the Côte Vermeille, a coastline of 60 km composed of beaches and coves extending as far as Spain, this establishment offers its guests many sightseeing opportunities in the surrounding area.
If the sea side resorts of Port Vendres, Banyuls sur Mer and Cerbère deserve to be discovered by taking the direction of Spanish Catalonia, it is in Collioure that you should absolutely make a stop. This legendary village was home to some of the greatest artists of the last century, starting with the famous Pablo Picasso. There is also a castle and a magnificent beach dominated by the bell-tower of a fortified church.
Further North, the capital of Catalan country, Perpignan, attracts a lot of tourists. With its narrow charming streets and its historical heritage, this city is definitely worth a visit. Among the many musts, we include the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, the Castillet, the Loge de Mer and the Town Hall...
