Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Take a dip at the heated Californian-style swimming complex

  • Has the only beach access of any parc in Argelès-sur-Mer

  • Hit the heights at Argelès Adventure, a treetop adventure park only 1 km away

How do you fancy pitching up on the only parc in Argelès-sur-Mer with direct beach access? And that’s not all that makes Le Soleil a great choice for a family holiday.

You might discover that your favourite spot is the parc’s impressive, heated, Californian-style swimming complex. Here, you can laze on sunbathing terraces in between watching the little ones paddle in the shallow area of the pool or the recently renovated kids’ pool (now with even more slides!). If you’re looking for a more active way to spend the day, head to the nearby theme park or whizz round the karting track (you may find that these thrills are so intense, you can hear the fun from the parc itself!). The action continues into the night in high season, when the parc’s own night club opens for the over-15s, while more formal entertainment takes place in the bar. In low season, however, the parc has a more relaxed air, making it a popular choice with young families. Whenever you visit, you’ll find that a supermarket, restaurant and takeaway will be open, so you’ll never go hungry!

    We had a enjoyable relaxing holiday. Chose the location carefully due to taking my partners grandchildren.We arrived towards end of season so the site was not overly packed. Access to the beach was great although the children were happier in the pool. One major irritation around the pool was the lifeguards all seemed to have different agendas when they were working. Day 5 a new lifeguard told the children to take their inflatable out of the pool which was quiet. Day 6 i was told my swim shorts did not comply with French Law (not sure why they didn't comply first 5 days). There was noise at night from the fair at Luna park which was mentioned in the brochure. Shop on site was expensive which we expected nothing else but there were a number of large supermarkets minutes away by car. Ideal location for a relaxing break not really many places to visit close by. The site is large and i can imagine in high season being really packed but we knew would be bit quieter end of season. We relaxed the children loved the pools could have done with a bit more on the site to keep them entertained early evening they are 9 and 11 not much for them too do.

    Overall, we enjoyed our holiday. The site is very big but the way it is designed with with lots of mature trees and with each placement within easy reach of the pool and other facilities made it feel relatively compact. There was noise from the fair ground - Luna Park which took a bit of getting used too. The site shop was very useful for fresh bread and croissants and the pool was kept clean and tidy - during the busy weeks, the sun beds were very busy but the actual swimming pool never seemed to feel crowded.

    We had a great family holiday. Location of parc on the beach was perfect. Our pitch was excellent (317), close to all the amenities, but off the beaten track so peaceful. Would definitely recommend.

    Lovely big park, Easy access to a lovely beach. Big Pools. There is a pool suitable for everyone. We had a very relaxing holiday. The tents were well equipt and a very good size. My 4 year old son had a great time. Yes Luna Park is a little close. but really it is just background noise. Not very loud but you can hear it. Definately recommend this park. Park was busy even at the end of August.
