Unlike many overly artificial seaside resorts, Argelès-sur-Mer offers an ideal destination for holidays , with family or friends. A pretty village in the Pyrénées-Orientales with its warmth and character, Argelès-sur-Mer brings together all the assets to appeal to holidaymakers aged 7 to 77 (and over, of course).

Argelès-sur-Mer: a lively and welcoming city

Located 22 km south of Perpignan, on the Côte Vermeille, Argelès-sur-Mer is a town on a human scale (10,383 inhabitants). Mythology even attributes to Hercules the founding of this city at the place where the Pyrenees plunge into the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. Built around its fishing and marina port, the heart of the city offers a most pleasant living space. It is good to live, walk or enjoy the conviviality specific to all Catalan villages. Around the city center, more recent districts offer beautiful residences or suburban areas just as attractive. Along the beach, the highly sought-after Racou district lines up fisherman's houses and mansions right on the water! Equipped with all the amenities, Argelès-sur-Mer offers the great advantage of living all year round. Ideal for those who want to enjoy their vacation outside of the summer rush.

The sea, the mountains and many activities

At the crossroads between rocky coasts and sandy coast, the 7 km of fine sand of Racou beach offer a wonderful space for relaxation. Whether it is settling down for a tanning session, swimming or indulging in beach or water sports, the place is idyllic. If the beach is open to you every morning, the nearby presence of the Albères massif invites you to take a walk: hikes, discovery of villages, historical monuments, listed sites… there is no shortage of ideas to entertain the whole family. Adventurers will appreciate the Canyoning Park of Argelès-sur-Mer while the wisest will head to the many museums in the region. Spending your holidays in Argelès-sur-Mer also means giving yourself the chance to discover not only the nearby city of Collioure, but also Spain for those who wish.
