Water Park at St Cyprien
Carcassonne – about 90mins away has a fantastic walled old town.
Castelnou – about 40 mins, head towards Thuir – another nice town – and follow signs
Chateau Valmy at Argeles-sur-Mer – junction 12 – Wine tasting, eagle displays and gardens
Collioure – you must go and sit and have a drink on the beach side. Sundays there is a market in the morning and this a good time to go – be prepared for a parking nightmare, but well worth the effort, so arrive early, or park at the “stade” at the top of the hill and walk down. Or our preferred method is a 15min boat ride from the port at Argeles which brings you straight into the port at Collioure.
Figueras – Spanish town (at approx. 85km) – nice shoe shops and the amazing Salvador Dali Museum
The lake at Villeneuve de la Raho, pedalos, bars and a mini water park.
