Why stay here ...

A peaceful and friendly site with an especially warm welcome from Sebastien and Annick. Located in the tranquil countryside, this site is a short walk away from the village of Palau-del-Vidre where restaurants serve local cuisine. 

The site boasts a wonderful array of trees and vegetation from eucalyptus, pines and ash to ginkgo biloba and palm trees. Its location in the grounds of an old hunting lodge provides natural scenery and plenty of shade for pitches, some of which have views of the mountains.

The pool complex has a Mediterranean feel in keeping with the area and a restaurant. The site organizes themed evenings where a huge Paella is served.

In the low season the site has “Tea Time” where customers exchange stories of days out and taste the Catalan specialities.

There’s lots to see and do in the area, with the artistic retreat of Collioure and the beaches of Argelès close by. Perpignan, with its colourful buildings and palm-shaded squares is a pleasant place for a day trip, while across the border in Spain, Figueres has some wonderful old streets and the fantastic Dalí Museum.

Home from Home

We have stayed at this site for 14 years and it is always welcoming and friendly. We are long term out of season caravanners, and the mix of like minded people of all nationalities makes it always a memorable trip. If you ask, nothing is too much trouble for the owners and the staff. The setting is beautiful, like being in a Botanical garden. Toilets twice a day in low season. The surrounding area is quiet, but very close to the coast. The Friday boule competition is always good fun, and music nights are always good

july 17 visit

Our 9th visit. We love it. Quiet and few children in July. Local lake great to run round. Beaches nearby and concerts/fireworks in local villages are great - out every night. But it is a long way to drive into this corner of France.

Excellent site in great location

Stayed for 15 nights in Aug/Sep. Located 5 mins walk from the quiet village of Palau del Vidre, just 10-15 mins drive from the beaches of Argeles and surrounding areas and within short drives to so many interesting villages e.g. Collioure on the coast, Ceret and Castelnou up in the hills etc. The family run site has modern, clean facilities, an excellent good sized pool and a very pleasant adjacent bar and restaurant. A limited no of pitches have individual water supply. Plenty of trees, so there is good shade all round the site.  There is an adjacent railway line but don't let this put you off.  We were pitched on the part of the site towards this line but the occasional rumble is barely heard, no doubt due to the wooded nature of the site. Wifi can be purchased at reasonable rates and internet reception was adequate rather than fast. The motor home service point doubles as a car wash area which is quite unusual and useful, given the summer heat and inevitable dust. We much preferred this lovely site to the huge, noisy sites in Argeles itself.

Lovely week at Le Haras

We have stayed at this site a number of times over the years.  We decided to visit again this year and were not disappointed.  We were given a choice of pitches and We chose a lovely pitch with views towards the mountains (we wouldn't have been able to choose this pitch if we didn't have a motor mover).  Easy access to beaches and mountains.

GREEN OASIS

While the pitches are not particularly big they are in a lush green setting with specimen trees (mostly labelled). Facilities are clean and well maintained. Pool is a good size and warm enough for old timers to swim in. Restaurant is good with a good choice of food that is well cooked and presented in pleasant surroundings. I liked the(free) car washing facility - the trees are home to a lot of birds! Lots to do in the area. We were there late May and most of June.
