Beautiful views from the windows, have to get up and see the sun rise over the small church...stunning. Very helpful couple who greeted us. The pictures of the areas are amazing, but to be there is so much more special.The town is exquisite with narrow colourful back streets to explore,with the amazing back drop of mountains and castles. we all enjoyed swimming in the sea .I especially loved getting up and having a swim before everyone was up then going back for breakfast.. Really sad to leave . hope to be back near future. Thank you

The town of Argeles remains our favourite destination in the South West of France. We will return.
