Campsite Le Canigou ***

General information

Camping Le Cangou is located between the villages of Prades and Vinca, about 50 kilometres to the west inland from the coastal city of Perpignan. The camping site is in the valley of the river Llech. Not a busy tourist trap, but peace and nature. Enjoy a view of the Pyrenees, the Pic du Canigou and the nature reserve around the camping site. The camping site has a natural water basin in the Llech as a swimming pool. A special experience!

Camping among the cherry trees

You'll drive on the paved roads to the property and your pitch. The pitches are not exceptionally large and vary in the amount of shade. You need a hammer to pound the stakes into the ground, as it is very hard. Delineation of the pitches is natural here, as there are many trees (primarily cherry trees) and bushes. Camping Le Canigou also offers seventeen accommodations for hire.

Natural swimming pool

You swim here in the water of the Llech! This river is safely dammed: so you are swimming in a natural swimming pool. Wonderfully refreshing, with crystal clear water. You can go canyoning in the Llech. This sport is a combination of all types of things: hiking, climbing, jumping, swimming and absailing. Also fun: in the high season there is a large climbing course set up on the camping site.

Long live the chef

The restaurant on the camping site has a fantastic cook. Sometimes there are theme evenings organised. There is also a charming little bar. The camping site shop stocks a reasonable selection. Need more? Jump in the car and go to the supermarket in Prades (seven kilometres away).
