Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the most beautiful areas in the south of France near the Pyrenees at the Mediterranean Sea.

The Languedoc-Roussillon consists of five departments. The southernmost, which borders Spain, is "Pyrénées-Orientales". The southern part of this department consists of the mountains of the Pyrenees that lead to the Mediterranean Sea. The north-western part of the department is a beautiful mountainous landscape. The department is part of the area that the French call "Petite France" because everything that can be found in France is also present in a relatively small area. It is characterized by large differences on a fairly small surface. The various ridges are covered with farmlands, bushes, vineyards and the typical French villages with the characteristic, friendly atmosphere.

Le Barcarès has about 4,000 inhabitants, on one side is the Mediterranean Sea and on the other side is the lake. It is a place that depends on tourism, but is not "extinct" in winter. Many amenities are present in Le Barcarès. There are plenty of dining and entertainment opportunities for relaxation. The cozy boulevard, the village center and the marina are famous places where many spend their summer evenings. The many terraces are then well filled until late at night.

The beach is kept clean and is filled with colorful parasols and children playing. Because the beaches are wide and there is no mass tourism, the beaches are not overcrowded. Everyone has enough space.

Restaurants, food & wine

In Le Barcarès there are many restaurants, bars, terraces and markets within walking distance of the apartment
Languedoc-Roussillon wines are becoming increasingly famous. There are well-known wine regions in Languedoc-Roussillon, such as Corbières, Minervois, Fitou, Collioure, Cabardès, Malepère, La Clape, and we can not forget to mention the festive Blanquette from Limoux. It is a beautiful sight to look at the vineyards and see the beautiful blue grapes. Enter one of the many "dégustations" or wine tastings and taste the different varieties. Your visit is certainly appreciated by the friendly winegrowers!


Due to the many beaches in the near area, it is possible to spend a day somewhere else. From May to September the wide sandy beach is the main attraction. The beach is kept clean and is filled with colourful parasols and children playing. The beaches are wide and not overcrowded. Everyone has enough space. Of course, there are countless possibilities to practice various water sports. Sailing, diving, kitesurfing, jet skiing, windsurfing or just sunbathing on the beach all of this is possible.

The summer festivals in the various villages and cities are often based on customs and ideas of the medieval period.

If you are in the area of Carcassonne, a visit to the so-called "Cité" is MUST SEE. It is the largest medieval fortress that is still in very good condition. It is a whole village in itself, with shops, restaurants, hotels, a castle, cathedral and a large number of houses. In the summer there are many festivals, filled with music, culture and gastronomic delights.

Barcelona is a two-hour drive. Carcassonne (the largest medieval preserved site in the world) is a 1.5-hour drive away.

Girona and Rosas (delicious and inexpensive dinners on the bay) are a 1-hour drive away, as well as Figuères where you can visit the Salvador Dáli Museum.

Furthermore, Narbonne and many picturesque coastal towns such as Collioure, Port-Vendres and Cerbère are within a 30-minute drive.

In the Languedoc-Roussillon, you will find many caves and caverns. This makes it one of the richest underground landscapes in France. There are about 15 caves open to the public. In these mineral kingdoms, you will also find lakes and rivers. You can easily walk through the maze of corridors and galleries, many of which are equipped with stairs and lighting.

Het appartement heeft een uitstekende ligging.
De totale ruimte is voldoende voor 6 personen en ook de keuken is volledig ingericht.
Het zwembad en het kleine kinderbadje is ideaal.
Het strand en de winkels liggen op loop afstand.
In de omgeving zijn goede en leuke betaalbare restaurantjes aanwezig.
Een dagje Spanje is uitstekend te doen, maar let op de Nationale feestdagen dan is veel gesloten.

We had a fantastic holiday in this luxury apartment !!! This apartment is very luxurious with big balcon where you can ether sit in the sun or in the shade. The roof terrace is very big and private and the ultimate place to have some cheese and wine and enjoy the wonderful sunset over the mountans and Lac the Leucate!!! Or jus to lay in the sun or have a meal with the family. The whole area such as the village, harbour, the sea and Mont Canigou and Pyrenees with a carpet of snow on the peaks where magical. so pretty with sunset !! We loved it! The staff at the Residence (Nathalie) is very nice and helped us a lot with our choice to go or every evening. There are many activities to do in the environment (to kite around, wakeboard, water park, fairground, circus, adventure park etc, etc. Also the residence is beautiful with a very large pool + children. There is a lot of space around the pool to sunbathe in the sun on a lounger. The beach is one of the best in France and a 10-minute walk as well as to the centre and the harbour. In the central market is great entertainment every evening for children and adults. There are restaurants and bars and nightclubs everywhere! Super markets to do your shopping are at 100 meters. The wifi works on the balcony and the reception, but not too strong. They told us to improve this for next year. The apartment is very new, with a complete kitchen and bedrooms have beds box spring which is very comfortable. We consider to go back next year. WE REALLY RECOMMEND THIS BEAUTIFUL AND SPACIOUS APARTMENT!!!
