Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Step onto your own private, pebble beach

  • Take a tour of the parc’s mini vineyard

  • Why not give scuba diving a try at one of the parc’s pools?

With amazing views of mountains and the sea, make sure you don’t forget your binoculars when you head to the fabulously situated Criques de Porteils.

Nestled on the rocky coves that add a rugged touch to this sun-baked corner of France, this terraced parc combines splendid scenery with direct access to a private, pebbled beach, but watch out, because when the tide is high, the beach may disappear for a while. In that case, why not enjoy a cracking view instead? The vista from the stylish bar and restaurant over the rooftops towards Argelès Bay is pretty special too. With three pools, one of which was refurbished only last year, and modern facilities throughout, Criques is ideal for those seeking a cultural retreat away from the hustle and bustle of colourful resorts such as Argelès Plage. There’s a chance you may hear some noise from the nearby railway when staying at this parc.

      While the pitches on the coast/cliff side of the site are very nice the Eurocamp pitches are not on the coast side! The SNCF train rattles by regularly and in the early morn, the pitches are very cramped but functional for a mobile home, not like other French sites to which we have been.
