About the Owner

We are Carol and Neil Cooper-Smith and we live in West Yorkshire with our daughter Florence, who is 16. She was a 2 year old toddler when we bought our house and we've loved spending as much time as possible in Argeles, as there's so much to see, do and experience. We bought the house because Argeles is a very child friendly resort, but also a place which has loads of things to do for people of all ages. We knew it would be a place which our family and friends would always love.

Lovely Location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location close to Port and beach but would need transport to village of Argeles which is very pretty and interesting. There is a bus ?1 only and very convenient to house which takes you to village and other towns nearby great value - so car not essential.

The house was as described but kitchen had only a table to work off with no worktops. No Hairdryer so bring you own. Bed linen is a problem and hired linen was really old and and threadbare simply not worth the money. No vegetarian options on menus in restaurants except usual pizza and omelette - thus need for self-catering. Car hire available in village if needed. Great Location and house with patio lovely.

From the Owner

We'd done a lot of research on the area before we bought the house and we were decided on Argeles because of the range of facilities and activities, as well as beautiful landscape and culture. Although Neil is an architect, we wanted new, as we didn't want to spend all of our precious holidays on DIY. Because we have a young family and usually take family or friends with us, we wanted somewhere within easy access (ie walking) to lots of different types of facilities. That means we chose a location which is lively with lots to see and do, but which also has easy access to beautiful countryside and culture.

Special interest holidays:

Several scuba diving schools and companies running fishing trips in the Marina. Also a windsurfing/canoe school on the beach, where you have lessons or simply hire a board or boat. Lots of walking in and around the area, some of which is guided. An abundance of historical sites, vineyards, spas, Art and culture. Very helpful Tourist Information Centre in the main resort (15 minute walk). For children, there are numerous kids' clubs and activities and just up the coast 15 min drive is a large water park Aquaplaned, which is a fantastic day out for all the family.


An easy 5 minute walk (300 mtrs) to a lovely sandy beach (Blue Flag) and a safe Mediterranean sea. In the summer season, the beach is cleaned daily and is patrolled by lifeguards. There are some great facilities on the way: Port Argeles Marina, with its shops, bars and restaurants is only a short walk away; the promenade, which is flat has great facilities such as a beach cafe, which serves hot food and snacks and rents sunbeds by the day and a children's club with a pool and inflatables.


Perpignan (PGF) is the nearest airport. Approx 45 mins by car. Gerona (GRO) over the border in Spain; it's a big Ryanair hub & is only 40 miles away approx 1 1/4 hour drive. Carcassone is 1 hour, Toulouse and Barcelona both approx 2 hours drive. Car hire at all airports. A car is not an essential requirement, as most facilities are in walking distance. There is also a resort "Petit Train" and a 1 Euro local bus service to other locations.


The Port Argeles Marina is across the road from the house and has a huge range of shops, bakeries, cafes, restaurants. Dr's, dentist, pharmacies are in the main resort (15 min walk). Twice weekly markets in the Marina in the summer season. Many of the surrounding villages (10 - 30 mins drive) offer a further choice of restaurants and markets. Immense amount of places of historical interest, Art, walks, vineyards, culture.

Further Details:

Mini-market in the Marina, larger supermarket in the resort and a large Lidl and Carrefour hypermarket in Argeles town. Helpful Tourist Information Centre in the main resort (15 mins walk). Plenty of cash point machines in Port Argeles and in the main resort. There is a large waterpark Aqualand, 15 mins drive at St Cyprien, which is a great family day out. Funfairs, inflatable parks for children are within easy reach. It is a fantastic resort and area, with something for everyone to suit all ages and tastes.

From the Owner

Our house is in a superb location if you want easy walking access to a huge range of facilities and activities. We have private parking, which is a real benefit in summer, when the resort can get busy. We don't boast a pool, but then, you are only 300 mtrs from the Mediterranean Sea! The Marina, which is in close proximity, has twice weekly farmers' markets,firework displays and musical entertainment. A huge array of restaurants from cheap and cheerful to gourmet means that you don't have to cook unless you want to. Vineyards and Caves sell locally produced wine. You will not want to come home!
