Alan Rogers Review

This is an amazing site situated on the cliff top with views across the sea to Argelès, set against a backdrop of mountains and close to Collioure, the artists’ paradise. A lot of work has been carried out to improve the facilities here and pitches have been redesigned for easier access. There are around 204 of varying sizes and shapes due to the nature of the terrain, level in places, up and down in others. All have 10A electricity available and either a sea view or views towards the mountains. There are eight small coves accessed by steep steps (gated). There is a new bar and restaurant and some unusual artistic workshops for children. Classical music sessions and guided walks are also available.

A 30 minute walk will take you to Collioure, or the sandy beach at Le Racou. A small, heated swimming pool has been built by reception at the entrance close to a duck pond and a small animal area. A few special level concreted places have also been designed for motorcaravans and 49 mobile homes and Bengali tents are available to hire. On the down side, the entrance off the main road needs care and there could be some road and train noise. The inaccessible parts of the cliffs are home to cormorants.
