Natural Argelès

Outstanding views and environment

Argelès-sur Mer is surrounded by outstanding scenery and viewpoints. Beneath the blue Mediterranean sky, you can explore typical places of interest such as Le Racou — listed by the French coastline conservation authority — and its typical small houses built on the beach, or nature reserves such as La Massane and Mas Larrieu… It’s no wonder that the town is known as “Argelès la Naturelle”!

Pyrénées-Orientales (66)

Authenticity and protected countryside

Over just a few square kilometres, the Pays Catalan offers the pleasures of the sea, a long coastline (214 km of fine sand and rocky creeks) and the mountains, as the Pyrenees finally drop down into the Mediterranean. The proximity of Spain (less than 30 minutes away) and outstanding sunshine levels (300 days a year), add to the idyllic portrait of the department.
