A VERY SPECIAL APARTMENT IN A STUNNING LOCATION

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in the apartment, it was in the best location close to the beach, restaurants , shops. 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

A wonderful apartment overlooking the harbour surrounded by wonderful resturants

5 of 5
It has been eight years since our last visit and it was wonderful to note that only the road network had changed. The town of Argeles remains our favourite destination in the South West of France. We will return.
