Can anyone recommend a site in this area of France?  Mainly adults in our party but also an 11 year old?

Thanks

What you looking for?
Big or small?

all singing and dancing or quiet?

for the sake of the 11 year old I suggest you go somewhere with keycamp, eurocamp etc on site to increase the risk of UK playmates

We went for a site in Perpignan last month. Tried twice to get to it but the traffic congestion beat us both times. Went to Narbonne instead - gorgeous.

Traffic does need to be considered carefully in the area. We use a campsite next to the beach so we don't need the car every day

I have just left a lovely Castels one near Perpignan Les Criques de Porteils I would recommend it. I haven't stayed in high season though. It is right on its own beach (albeit slightly shingly) but there are numerous sandy beaches within walking distance. The views are spectaclar with lots of interesting towns and places to walk to. The shower block is spotless with lots of hot water. Shop on site and a small bar/restaurant. It has 2 small swimming pools. It is about a 20mile car ride into Spain. This site takes some beating in that area.Only down side is that it may be difficult for larger outfits as most of the pitches are terraced-everyone gets a view though! Enjoy!

Thanks for the replies.  Requirements are walking distance to beach and hopefully village.

The beach although shingly is right on the site. A beautiful sandy one about 750yards! Walking distance into town of Coloire (check spelling!) is about 2km. In the opposite direction anothet small town with harbour maybe 2km  away and Argeles Sur Mer a much bigger town approx 5 miles away-spolit for choice! Oh I also forgot anothet nice harbour with lovely restaurants about 7miles away at Port Vendres! I have also forgot to mention all the nice vineyards and "Route de Vin" that is also in this area-go to the vineyards and try all the wine! (I think I should be on commission from the turist board here!) It really is lovely and of course, you can easily do day trips into Spain! Bon Voyage!

 Agree with Jean m. we stayed at les Criques de porteils in June. Lovely pitch, but we did ask for one with sea view, some of them are down in dip and I wouldn't have wanted these. Collioure is about half hours walk by footpath over cliffs, lovely views. Wonderful market there and you can swim in the sea almost from the market itself! 2 pools are very small but enough, no flumes etc. Read reviews of it on this site.

We enjoyed a stay at Le Cala Gogo, St Cyprien a couple of years ago.  Nice pool, value for money restaurant though shop on site a bit limited.  Opens straight out onto a sandy beach but bit of a walk into town though.

Keycamp are on this site.

Another vote for les Criques de Porteils... Been there a few times (pre swimming pool years though) and you can't bit the sea view out of the tent..

Bit exposed when a storm blows in though!! (experience talking here..)

We used to walk to Collioures via the "closed/prohibited" cliff path through the Army commando training facility...That path wasn't really that closed and many people used it. Great for find places to jump off cliffs... and for snorkeling..

Hi

A bit further up the coast near Beziers at Porteragnes is Les Sablons. This is a large lively site with entertainment in High season. It has its own direct access to the beach and so you never need to use your car.

The village is a few minutes from the campsite and has loads of shops etc.
