Le Grande Cosse is a site on the Languedoc coast, near to Fleury sur Aude, in southern France. It is a large, flat site, set adjacent to the lagoons of the Etang de Pissevaches, and backed by the ‘Mountains’ of Le Clape. The road to the site is narrow, and the surface is not good in some places, so take care when driving to and from the site.

In early season this year mosquitoes were a real problem, but on our second visit in early September there was not a single mosquito around – and someone told us that the new owner was taking steps to make the campsite mosquito free. The mosquitoes in early season were more than compensated for (for us) by the abundant bird life. The site in May was a paradise for bird watchers, with many species of nesting birds in the nearby lagoons, and many other species flying over the site – including flocks of European bee eaters.

Within the site there are various small ‘sitting’ areas, with shrubs, seating, and shade – and all around the site there are flowering plants and shrubs. The site provides plenty of wildlife information, including a leaflet on what flowers and birds can be seen around the site.

The site is large, with marked and hedged pitches, some with good shade. Receptionists generally ask if you want a sunny or shady pitch – and point you in the right direction. Access is via a barrier, with an electronic card on a returnable deposit. Access roads within the site are generally good and a one way system operates. Some of the pitches are very large and in early season were well grassed, late season the pitches were mostly hard packed sandy soil – though still some grass on the shadier pitches. Water points are plentiful, and hook-up is the normal European blue plug.

There are several sanitary blocks, opening progressively as the site fills up. All have normal style toilets, washbasins and showers in cubicles, as well as the open-plan naturist style showers. There are areas to wash up and wash clothes, and some of the blocks have washing machines and dryers. The toilet facilities were immaculately clean on both our visits. Chemical toilet disposal points are available in some of the blocks.

There are three swimming pools, heated, and with paved areas with plastic loungers. There is a toilet block within the pool area, and lockers to leave shoes. There is an excellent shop on site – a mini Super you selling a wide range of goods, and prices are very good. The shop sells a really good range of wines, at decent prices, as well as ’dispensing’ the local wine from a small barrel into your own bottle – at around 1. 70 euros per litre! This is very drinkable!

There is a restaurant and take-away, which does a reasonable range of meals, including cooked mussels at 7. 90 a kilo! The restaurant does a set menu in early season, with choices, and in higher season offers an A la Carte selection. There is a bar, and a very pleasant outside area with seating to ‘lounge’ on. Some entertainment is provided on most nights, particularly in August/September, less so in May/June.

You can walk through the lagoons down to the naturist beach – a hot walk so take plenty of drinks – which is long, and very uncrowded, at least when we’ve been there. The sea seems colder than in some areas, and the beach can be windy. It’s backed by dunes, though, so you can find some shelter if it’s windy. In high season there is a cabin on the beach selling snacks and drinks. You can walk along the beach into St Pierre sur Mer, or La Cabanes de Fleury – but you’ll need to take clothes!

Nearby the Gouffre de Oueil Doux is worth a visit - a dark pool at the bottom of a high cliff, as is the daily market at St Pierre sur Mer. You’re within easy distance of Narbonne, which is a very pleasant city, and Beziers. The Canal du Midi is not far away, nor is Narbonne Plage, and the Etang de Bages – where this year there were flamingos. There are walks through the mountains of Le Clape – and good views from the top. Gruissan is worth a visit, and there is a spectacular (if small) church there. You can visit the salt museum at Salins du Midi, and the wildlife park at Sigean. The site provides a range of tourist information, including a list of the local markets.

The site takes an ACSI card in low season, so at 15 euros per night including hook-up is very good value.

We just had to escape the wet British summer and ended up again at La Grande Cosse - a lovely site with good facilities and immaculate washing/shower/lavatory facilities, several good pools and good food facilities (a well stocked shop and restaurant).

Lots for children to do and understandably popular with families.

The only negative is the smelly approach road (the smells do not drift to the camp site though)

The beach is a bit of a walk but delightfully unspoilt.

We will be back!

We stopped off for a few days heading up to Calais. This is a large site with a good helpful reception and the site generally is well kept with good sanitary facilities. We were there in low season so some facilities were not open. It has a good shop which is useful as it is well out of town.

The site is approached down a narrowish road (no difficulty with caravans though). The road is low through the marshes which surround the site. Early in season mosquitos can be a real problem although I understand the marshes are sprayed from time to time and the shop sells every deterrent imaginable. The mosquitoes did bother me but not my wife.

The extensive beach is a pleasant walk through the site. Pitches are large and generally hard sandy soil based.

We enjoyed site site but would have enjoyed it more later in the year without the mosquitos.

Around the site are notices instructing action to take in the event of a flood from the marshes. Not something we experienced but we have spoken to others who have.
