Parc reviews

Parc highlights

Hippocampe is a small but fun-packed parc with some fantastic activities, as well as good access to plenty more nearby. The pool area has a lovely tropical feel with its palm trees, terrace and grassy sunbathing areas, plus kids' favourite - waterslides! Horse riding, tennis and archery are just a few of the activities on offer here, and what's more, just across the road, you also have access to the superb sports facilities and evening entertainment available at La Sirène, its larger sister parc. Just a mile away at Argelès-sur-Mer is an impressive long, sandy beach as well as plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy. Please note that the lively evening entertainment at La Sirène, as well as some road noise, can sometimes be heard.
