Why stay here ...

A large site located directly on a sandy beach, Le Brasilia is an exceptional, family-focused site in which the owners take great pride. There's a multitude of activities and facilities for all ages, including an impressive pool complex with slides and waterfalls, a wellness centre, shops and restaurant. Daily entertainment during the summer months includes fitness classes and evening shows.

Many families find little need to leave the site during their stay, but nearby Perpignan has plenty to recommend it, with its 13th-century palace, fine art museum and knot of winding alleys in the old town. On the coast, visitors can enjoy a range of water sports, from diving to jet skiing.

We Loved it !!!

We stayed here in June 2018 with our 2 children 8 & 10 years. We are used to smaller sites and a little more peace and quiet, so were a little apprehensive when we booked La Brasilia. What we found upon arrival was a beautiful, well looked after site with so much to do for the kids and adults. (Cycling club for the adults was great -100Km ride outs most days). There is much mention on the other reviews about the trees. Yes, there are pine trees and yes they drop their needles. However, staff regularly clean up the roads and plots and keep the place looking beautiful. The needless are a small price to pay for the benefit of having shade and boy do you need it given the summer temperatures down there. We personally found the plot sizes big enough for a 7.5meter caravan with a full size awning and a further sun porch / awning attached to that. Fantastic toilet blocks, one of which is brand new and stunning. The only downside is that the increase in size of the new cubicles means that they have reduced capacity, which led to a little queue at peak times. Pools and facilities were amazing and the beach.. Awesome!! If I had to pick fault I would say that the noise that come from an adjoining site is at times a little too much. This will only affect you if you are right at the back of the site (which we were). That said it was silent before midnight, so I could live with it. It’s a long old journey from the English / Scottish border, but I can honestly say it was worth every mile !!!

Very friendly, despite the size

I agree with recent reviews that this an excellent very well equipped and maintained site. The pool complex is enormous and beautifully landscaped. Best out of season (or lunchtime) when it is still warm but not too busy. There is a whole mini village of shops so no real need to go anywhere else. In fact the place is something of a "bubble". There are sightseeing opportunities around but we'd done that on the way down so mainly stayed on site for 10 days. Despite it being very large with whole areas devoted to cabins, the atmosphere managed to be friendly and almost intimate. This is mainly due to the helpful staff and especially the animation crew. As a senior couple, we are not normally interested in on site entertainment (unlike the French who make it their top priority) but we thoroughly enjoyed the lunchtime pool exercises and the evening shows. How lovely to wander around at 10pm in a T-shirt listening to tribute acts and sipping cocktails! Great to have a beach adjacent but it does shelve steeply and you need shoes to get over the strip of stones at the water's edge. If you have really small children you may prefer to get the little train into Canet. We mostly had nice weather in early September but the Tramontane wind got up some days and quickly blew cloud in. Temperature remained in the mid twenties. I also agree about the shape of the pitches and the constant droppings from the trees. Some pitches were worse than others so it is pot luck. It seems like a posh tablecloth is not the only essential accessory - you need a car over and a spare tarpaulin over the awning. If you book through the Club you will be in an area with other Brits and have no choice. I suspect that any site in the South of France will have this problem if you have shade. We had grass underfoot further north but not here! Using the water connection and draining into the ditch we never used the site showers.

A Great All-round Site

Just returned from three weeks at this site and loved it. Despite my first impression on arrival, that made me think that I had arrived at one of those UK holiday camps. My misgivings were quickly dispelled by the warm welcome we received at reception and from our friendly escort to our pitch. It's a large site divided up into small areas with their own facilities that are regularly cleaned and as a result spotless. The pitches are large and fully serviced with water, waste and electric and most have trees providing some shade, which was welcomed. A slight drawback is that the trees are home for squirrels, pigeons and other birds that can result in your caravan/Motorhome,awning and car being subjected to,,, well I'll leave it to your imagination. The site has its own shops, bars, restaurant, spa, entertainment area, swimming pools with children's water play area together with various sports areas. There's direct access to the beach that had lifeguard cover throughout our stay. This site should suit all ages with something for everyone. Families especially will like this site as it provides a safe environment for their children to explore. We hardly left the site finding everything we needed for a very enjoyable holiday. If we had to say something negative about our stay, it would be, that it just wasn't long enough.

Not as good as we had hoped

This site is rated as 5 star and all the facilities were of the best standard so we have no issues there. There are however a lot of pine trees which are tall and well established and these caused us serious problems. There are a lot of creatures living in these trees - pigeons, ravens, magpies and squirrels and the huge amount of droppings, especially those which were purple in colour made it impossible to sit out or leave anything out in the open - e.g. table, chairs and washing. The plots were mostly oriented the wrong way round so the van had to be sited across the plot instead of straight into it. The ground also had a covering of very fine dust which made the car and 'van filthy when it rained and put a film of brown dust all over the interior of the caravan. The pines also dropped quantities of very sticky sap all over everything and we are struggling to clean it off. We would not return to this site unless the tree issues are resolved.

Very Well run site

This is  a large and comercial site but so well laid out and run that each pitch feels fairly peaceful and the toilet/shower blocks are close by and immaculate, and include private washrooms. As it is a large site think about what sort of pitch you want before you commit...some are closer to the sea, the dog walk and the children's playground....others are further away and more shaded. A bicycle or a car are an advantage to get to local shops, and to see the local area as while there are a range of shops on site, what they stock may not be what you crave for! Having said this there are plenty of local walks and the beach by the campsite is great....and of course the onsite pool complex caters for most needs.....whether it's swimming lengths gently swimming with younger children, or going Helter skelter down water slides.
