Description

Our campsite in Roussillon gives you access to a surprising slice of the Mediterranean coast: a peaceful location in an authentic family seaside resort with enormous sandy beaches! The former province of Roussillon, located in Occitanie, extends south until the border with Spain, located in the Albères massif in the foothills of the Pyrenees. To the west, the Canigou massif overlooks the plains and to the north the Corbières and their famous vineyards invite you to come and taste their wares. You simply won’t get bored - there’s a real variety of places and subjects to explore!

 

Close to our campsite in Roussillon, experience open-air history!

 

Visit Mont-Louis, the highest fortified city in France! Its seventeenth-century citadel is one of the 15 major fortified sites designed by the Marquis de Vauban (currently in the process of receiving Unesco World Heritage status). Workshops for children are put on there during the summer.

The village of Castelnou is one of the most remarkable sites in Catalonia and is an absolute must-see. Other villages are worth going out of your way for, and some are listed among France’s most beautiful villages, such as Villefrance-de-Conflent, Evol, Lagrasse...

 

Choose our campsite in Roussillon, for the mountains!

 

The Catalan Pyrenees Regional Nature Park and its wide open spaces will thrill you with its exceptional flora and record amounts of sunshine. The famous Canigou massif and Eyne valley will leave you with lasting memories!

The Albères massif offers a foretaste of the splendour of the Pyrenees and is a place for fantastic hikes above the vineyards of Banyuls and the endless blue of the sea.

If you’re a bit less keen on walking, opt for the Yellow Train of Cerdagne. At the heart of Pyrénées-Orientales, it is France’s highest regularly-used railway line. 63 kilometres, 19 tunnels and two spectacular bridges enable you to take in the dramatic, vertigo-inducing panoramic views.

 

Spain is like a next-door neighbour at our campsite in Roussillon

 

Spain, our neighbour, invites you to experience a Catalan getaway. One potential stop is Cadaqués, a charming coastal village where Salvador Dalí was once a frequent visitor. Alternatively, why not visit the museum dedicated to said artist in Figueres? You won’t be disappointed!

While we’re on the subject of unmissable art, on the French side of the border you can take a trip to the charming town of Céret, famed for its Museum of Modern Art and its cherries...

 

The coast, from France to Spain

 

The sandy beaches stretch out as far as the eye can see near La Pergola, our campsite in Roussillon. They lead us all the way to Collioure, which sits nestled in a bay where the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean mingle with the rocks of the Pyrenees. You’ll love this wonderful site, a constant source of inspiration for artists. Picasso, Matisse, Derain, Dufy, Chagall, Marquet and so many others have immortalised this little Catalan port.

 

A visit to Perpignan is an absolute must!

 

Once you’ve passed through the imposing fortified gate, stroll along the little shopping streets, then head off to discover the treasures of the old town: the Saint-Jean-Baptiste Cathedral; the Place de la Loge and its remarkable Gothic-style building, the Loge de Mer; the palace-fortress of the kings of Majorca... Go for a wander along the majestic Promenade des Platanes with its various statues or visit the famous Castillet whose terrace offers a stunning view over the rooftops of the city. The Castillet is the symbol of Perpignan, and today it is home to a museum which recounts the story of Northern Catalonia from ancient times to the present day.

 

Catalan cuisine and southern flavours

 

Enjoy sunny cuisine that mixes sweet and salty flavours and combines seafood with mountain produce. Fruits, vegetables, farm produce and charcuterie, accompanied by the richness of Roussillon wines, create the flavour of Catalan cuisine...
