We have just stayed for 2 weeks in a 2 bed house that sleeps 4-6 persons. The price for our stay was reasonable and reflects the facilities on offer. Compared to other more established campsites there is no onsite shop but the hypermarket is a short drive away for main shopping and a 2 minute walk away there is a shop that is handy for essentials along with a fast food van if you want something quick. The bonus to not having a shop is that local producers come into the complex to sell bread croissants etc in the morning and crepes midday and different foods in the evening such as Vietnamese ,paella or other more regional dishes. The town/ village is a short bike away or you can drive or catch the train bus which is very reasonable and this takes you into the village port or plage and means you can drink and not drive.
The houses are kitted out well with a dishwasher and kitchenette and built in wardrobes to the bedrooms. The one big downside is lack of air con which for us brits may prove difficult when acclimatising to the 30⊙ heat. We had a fan but these are purchased at you expense in the hypermarket! The pool is ok, does what it says on the tin, if you want slides and rapids go to aqualand for a day as its only 15 mins by car. There needs to be more sun loungers and parasols is my only criticism of this area. The site is quite compact and a little noisier than I would have expected at night so not the best if you want total silence but nothing that kept me up into the small hours. Reception opens twice a day with a long lunch so be prepared to wait if you arrive out of their normal hours.the site is gated and secure with parking to the front.there is some limited night activities which we did not partake in such as a kids disco and karaoke.....don't worry it doesn't go on for long.there are only 2 washing machines at 5 euro a pop so best to make sure you have a full load!
The site is very french with a few dutch and hardly any brits which was to our liking as I'm not a brit abroad kind of girl.
Argeles was extremely busy this year (we have been numerous times) however mid august you would expect it to be as we are in peak season. The weather was mainly hot and dry but the odd bad day we just went out and about to Carcassonne and coullier etc.
Overall a pleasant stay and worth the money compared to shelling out £'s on other sites as we have in the past.
We will be booking again.
