There is a Water Park nearby which is worth a visit. The complex was very secure and had a good sized swimming pool. We were a party of two couples and made very good use of the four bikes. We'd definitely recommend it and the area as a great place to stay.

The owner was very helpful when I was arranging transport and trying to find out more about the area. The house is very comfortable with lots of space (kitchen space more limited but still has everything you would need). We really enjoyed sitting outside for all our meals (great sized table, we had 9 adults). I'd recommend it particularly for a short break as its near the airport (20 mins in a taxi), and Perpignan (which is lovely). There are two nice villages either side of the house. Its 2km to St. Nazaire (short cycle on cycle track) which had a market on Sat morning and there was a butchers, supermarket, bakery etc. We also walked to Canet village (3km) and had a lovely meal there. Having a car would be better though, we didn't rent one and we needed to book taxis in advance. For us the house was really homely, was ideal for a group and would definitely work for families.
