The Argeles / Argeles sur Mer area
Languedoc-Roussillon - bordering the Mediterranean to the east and the Pyrenees in the south - is a area of spectacular contrasts. Gentle sandy beaches and lagoons are backed by rugged mountainous country - the setting for Kate Mosse's acclaimed novels Labyrinth and Sepulchre. It's also a region with an exciting mix of cultures: Spanish, Catalan, French and Moorish are fused in regional food, events and architecture.
The old province of Roussillon, which lies closest to the Pyrenees, was once Spanish and today its many Catalan traditions live on. Its capital, Perpignan, is a sunny city of palm-lined squares and is a good place to sample local food and wine.
In the far south of France, right at the gates of Catalonia and Spain lies Argeles ? the place where the mountains meet the sea. Argeles, has 7 km of sandy beach and 2 km of rocky coastline, with the entire resort and its little port classed as a blue flag area with clean bathing, and a beach which is cleaned daily. The seafront is flanked by 12 hectares of pine forest and a 3km tree fringed promenade. Despite its popularity the region remains largely unspoilt, with over 80% of the land still given over to agriculture. Argeles has two nature reserves: the Mas Larrieu right on the coast and the forest of Massane at the heart of the Alberes area. Just 20km south of Perpignan, in one of the sunniest regions of France, you will find sun, sea, mountains, catalan tradition, gastronomy, vineyards as far as the eye can see and a wonderful quality of life in a beautifully preserved environment.
Argeles sur mer is the main town of a group of 8 communes nestling at the foot of the Alberes massif. All the villages have grouped together to bring you many itineraries which take in culture, relaxation and adventure sports. There are itineraries which allow you to discover charming ancient villages, magnificent roman chapels, traditional crafts (glass making at Palau de Vidre for example). There is a railway museum at Sorede, a traditional farm at Saint Andre, the tortoises of La Vallee Heureuse, the eagles at Valmy?lots of visits giving you the opportunity to really get to know the area.
To the north west, the restored medieval fortress town of Carcassonne is a UNESCO world heritage site and a gastronomic destination too with local specialities such as cassoulet, confit de canard and saucisson sec (wind-dried sausages).
