HOLIDAYS IN ROUSSILLON

PERPIGNAN PERFECT FOR FAMILY BEACH HOLIDAYS

Our holiday parks in Roussillon are handily clustered in the Mediterranean seaside port city of Perpignan, where long days at the beach under the gaze of the sun truly live up to expectations. 

With the Spanish border only a stone's throw away from the city, influences of Catalonian culture are evident throughout your stay, which can make it feel as though you are visiting several destinations at once!

The caves, castles and chateaux dating from ancient Roussillon are well worth a trip inland for an intriguing historical day trip, while the winding terracotta coloured alleyways of the city are well worth getting lost in.
