Two 2 bedroomed apartments- Relaxing location including terrace with a beautiful view and.offering loads to do close by
This has got to be one of the best locations in France for a family holiday. The two apartments are 100 metres from one of Europe’s top 50 beaches (The Independent) and overlook a beautiful lagoon, with the Pyrenees and Mt Canigou in the near distance. There is something for everyone to do in the close vicinity from the bustling port of St Cyprien to the famous abbey at Elne. You can catch a boat up to the artist village of Collioure or take a short walk to the Aqualand water park - and much more! The apartments are fully equipped, and each has a small combi oven/grill and two electric rings for cooking, as well as a washing-machine and iron. There is also a TV/ DVD player and a CD player. Close by are restaurants on the beach, a well stocked shop offering take away chicken, pizzas, etc. There is also a beach bar perfect for a 'sundowner!'

Fantastic apartment, everything You need and more and great veiws
The pictures for this apartment don't do it justice, very well equipt, very clean and tidy. Beautiful view of the lake, and a very short walk from a gorgeous sandy beach. A short walk from a shop which is also a bakery and sells cooked chicken and chips for the evening, and a little beach bar which I wouldn't recommend for food, undercooked meat and over priced, but lovely for a drink any time of day. A very safe resort, quiet and clean, we went with our 3 boys 10,8&5 and they can't wait to go back, very relaxing great weather
Activity and Interests
The beach is about 100 metres away, just a 2 minute stroll over the dunes.
Miles and miles of golden sands stretching almost to the Spanish border with the beautiful mountains as a backdrop. The beach is cleaned every night, is safe for swimming and St Cyprien provides a variety of water sports, from dingy sailing to jet skiing, the latter being on the beach by the apartments. The Independent has rated it as one of the top 50 Mediterranean beaches.
Nearest airports include:
Perpignan-35 minute drive
Carcassonne- 80 minute drive
Gerona-80 minute drive
Saint Cyprien village- approximately 1 kilometre
Collioure- approximately 15 kilometres
Perpignan-approximately 10 kilometres
The tet valley:
Prades- home to the Pablo Casals music festival
Villefranche- medieval , walled town with castle up on the mountainside. The village is connected to the castle by an underground tunnel- 800 steps- descent only! The Little Yellow Train leaves here(narrow gauge) and takes you up into the mountains.
St Michael’s- beautiful cloisters
St Martin’s- again beautiful but the final approach is half an hour on foot, but well worth it for the views.
The Tech valley:
Arles- great walks
Ceret- home to Picasso for a while and a museum/art gallery
Figueres- again Dali connections
Barcelona- I suggest that you drive to the station at Figueres then take the train into the heart of Barcelona; or enquire at the Tourist Office at the far end of St Cyprien harbour as day coach trips do go to Barcelona, but book early.
Nearby- Elne- beautiful cloisters
Collioure-castle; home to the Fauvist painters, Matisse (you can get the boat from Port Argeles into Collioure)
Banylus and Cerbere- last on the coast before Spain
Near the apartments, there are several horse riding stables, watersports on the beach and at St Cyprien harbour and Aqualand!
Argeles has a bowling place, and outdoor water adventure park- bouldering.
Go-karting near us and also at Argeles (for younger children).
The Cathar castles
Walking in the Pyrennees.
We climbed the Canigou last year; you have to hire a 4 wheel drive taxi from Prades to take you up in the mountains to a refuge. From there it is about 2 hours to the summit. Views are fantastic; we saw eagles there…
Ask at the tourist office in St Cyprien Harbour for telephone numbers for the ‘taxi’.
Perpignan old town is a place to visit on a Thursday evening; the old streets are full of jazz bands, drama groups etc.
These are just some of the places we’ve explored and I’ve left leaflets in the folder in the apartment; please do feel free to leave leaflets and recommendations of days out which you have enjoyed.
