We have just come back from a 3 week holiday at the Huttopia Campsite in Font Romeu. We really enjoyed it. A great location with fabulous views. The Staff are very friendly, and always ready to help. The campsite has a brand new swimming pool, which is not yet heated but will be next year (2009)! Whilst the first dip was freezing we did seem to get used to it and the 20 degrees felt quite pleasant by the end of the holiday! The area surrounding Font Romeu is truly beautiful. There are several walks to do directly from the campsite. My husband and son of 12 went off on the mountain bike trails and had a great time. The food served in the restaurant is of good quality and very tasty! A visit to Lac Bouillouses is recommended. You can park your car at La Calme and get a ski lift to the Lake (if you are scared of heights don't do this, take the bus!) To protect the area, they don't allow cars to travel to the Lake, so you have to either walk/cycle or take a Ski Lift or Bus. The bus takes you right to the lake. From the base of the the ski lift you need to walk half an hour (easy walking). If you are camping make sure you have warm sleeping bags, our first night was 3 degrees!!! So the temperatures can drop at night. We also drove to the coast (St. Cyprien)in an hour and 3 quarters. A wide sandy beach, with no shade. Water was clean and deep and for a couple of hours was fine. We wanted to visit Collioure, half an hour up the coast but it was sooo busy, we couldn't park the car anyway and had to leave without stopping, shame it looked lovely, but just extremely busy. We escaped back up to the mountains to the peace and tranquility of Huttopia!
I would recommend this campsite to families who enjoy the outdoors and the activities which go with the mountains, walkers and cyclists alike. A great place to relax and get away from it all.
