In summer 2016, we stayed in a mobile home at a campsite in Argelès-sur-Mer.
Camping, a different holiday
Even though the French film "Camping" uses clichés from the 80s, it did encourage the development of these different types of holidays. The popularity of camping has grown a great deal over the past fifteen years. In some regions, entire fields have been turned into summer camps. Mobile homes are increasingly replacing tents and caravans to ensure greater. Small vacation homes available to rent or buy, there is something for everyone. Thanks to camping, many families from all different social categories can enjoy destinations by the sea or more remote destinations for those looking for peace and quiet.
Taxo Les Pins
Taxo Les Pins is a campsite in Argelès-sur-Mer, in the Pyrénées Orientales region. A huge number of campsites can be found there. A very practical train bus service is available that goes around the town and the campsites meaning that people don’t have to take their car to get to the main beach. Moreover, the beach is huge and crowded at this time of year. Of course, everyone tries to get on the Train bus as quickly as possible so as to get a seat.
Visits to do
Not far from Perpignan, the town of Collioure, slightly further south is worth a visit. Near Spain, it is easy to enjoy some Tapas with the family on the Catalan coast in Port Bou or Roses at affordable prices and take advantage of the beaches all along the coast. Mountain hikes are also available as well as cultural visits, such as the castle of Taxo for example. Be sure to pay a visit to Argelès tourist office. At the moment, if you take a walk along the beach of Argelès, you be able to see an exhibition until November 2, 2016, with photos and texts in the open air on the theme of an Exhibition of men and islands.
Camping and entertainment
In general, at the campsite, we are quite close to our neighbours but the pitch is large and there is a great deal to do. At Camping Taxo Les Pins, the young dynamic team offers a variety of activities: swimming pool, sports and evening entertainment for young and old, from morning to evening.
A great evening
For once, Thursday evening by the activity organisers was a success. Congratulations to Fabien for his Michael Jackson choreography and to Stephen for his humour and his Capoeira. Christelle speaks perfect English and the entire team who took part in the show ensured that we had a pleasant evening full of surprises. We went to bed late but we truly had a great time.
