Soak up the local flavor in Argeles-sur-Mer

For a different side of France, try Argeles-sur-Mer. Situated on the Languedoc coast, this popular seaside resort is in French Catalonia, which means it has a distinct style and feel, unlike anywhere else in the country. It's a popular summer getaway for French families, who come to it for its many family-friendly attractions and its long, sandy beach. It's also got plenty of local and international restaurants, as well as quite a few lively bars and nightclubs, so there's something for grown-ups too. With a centrally located Argeles-sur-Mer vacation rental, you'll never be far from all that the resort has to offer.

On, off, and over the beach at Argeles-sur-Mer

Whatever you do, make sure to bring your shorts. The award-winning beach at Argeles-sur-Mer stretches for 4 miles, and is very popular with locals and travelers during the warm summer months. There's a whole host of activities happening on and off the beach, including volleyball, surfing, and diving. If that's not enough to get your adrenaline pumping, you can also go skydiving. After some fun in the sun, take a walk along the tree-lined Promenade du Front de Mer, which lies close to many restaurants, late-night bars, and a beachfront casino.

Life is a roller-coaster, you just gotta ride it

Whether you're young or young at heart, there's plenty to see and do in Argeles-sur-Mer and the surrounding area. At Luna Park, you'll find many fun rides, including a roller-coaster, a water flume, and a ferris wheel that offers panoramic views of the surrounding area. Or why not nip next door to Canyoning Park, where you can climb, abseil, and jump from man-made waterfalls. There are also numerous cultural attractions in the area, including the Ceret Museum of Modern Art, and the Chateau Royal de Collioure, a royal castle in nearby Collioure, a picturesque fishing village.

Shorts, T-shirts, flip-flops, and maybe an umbrella, just in case

Argeles-sur-Mer has a Mediterranean climate, which means warm, dry summers and cool winters with some rainfall. From May to September, you can expect average highs in the 70s, with July temperatures pushing up into the 80s. There's rainfall throughout the year, although you may want to avoid going in May, which is the wettest month of the year. As it gets pretty busy here during the peak summer months (as it does in the rest of the region), Argeles-sur-Mer vacation rentals tend to be cheaper in the quieter months of September and October.

Take a walk on the wild side in the French Pyrenees

One of the best things about Argeles-sur-Mer is surely its background—the Pyrenees. This mighty mountain range, which straddles the border between France and Spain, overlooks the seaside town and provides a very scenic backdrop. The mountains are covered in beech and oak trees, and are home to many species of wildlife. The 830-acre National Nature Reserve of the Massane Forest is only 15 miles from Argeles-sur-Mer, and is one of the few ancient forests in France. Its tough walks and rich ecology make it a must for anyone who fancies getting back to nature.
