Adventure camping-car in Occitania: Two unpublished itineraries to try
To take full advantage of your expedition on the roads of the Occitania, you have the choice between at least two courses that will allow you to mix sensations of unheard driving and discoveries. You can indeed opt for a ascent of the coast starting from Argelès-sur-Mer to arrive at the Grau-du-Roi, by making a stopover in Agde.
But nothing prevents you from starting the procession in the opposite direction, that is, by making a sensational descent from the Grau-du-Roi to Argelès, always passing through the village of Agde. All these cities have enough to fill the adventure enthusiast that you are as well in terms of logistics, as leisure and entertainment to discover and try…
To the conquest of Argelès-sur-Mer in motorhome!
Argelès-sur-Mer is a small village located at the foot of the Massif des Albères, where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean Sea. The locality is well known for offering a lot of sensations to visitors: seaside pleasures, green tourism and secular art of living.
The campsites in Argelès sur Mer are numerous, and most (this is the case of those of Tohapi) are on the front of Mer.et most are on the waterfront. Ideal for your road trip in Argelésiennes Land, since in addition to a secure location for your vehicle, you will enjoy privileged access to the beach and the sea, but also to the beautiful walks in the village and its surroundings. …
But the haliotropisme is not the only attraction of Argelès. The landscape itself is breathtaking: Catalan-coloured houses, festive holidays, a fascinating handicraft, the ramparts of "Cayroux", picturesque alleys and the traditional market. Argelès-sur-Mer is also a marina littered with bars, shops and lively beaches… Do not hesitate to venture a few miles from Cape Béar to discover, at the foot of the Pyrenees, a land with exceptional decor between vineyards and small dwellings browned by the sun.
Agde, the ancient Greek city
Whatever itinerary you choose for your adventure in Occitania, the village of Agde is an obligatory passage.
Again, you will have no trouble finding what to refuel and install your vehicle because despite its size rather contained, Agde is a high place of camping in France! Vast areas arranged on the banks of the Hérault in an area with play surfaces and campsites in retreat or parking areas just a few steps from the sea… You will be spoilt for choice!
This coastal city with a southern accent, is situated at the crossroads of the Hérault River, the Canal du Midi and the Mediterranean Sea. Besides the activities at the beach, it is illustrated by the charm of its alleys and its workshops of artists who are legion in the city centre, but also by its buildings in volcanic black stone, coming from Mont Saint-Loup. This is what earned him the nickname of Black Pearl. These alleys trace in fact a large part of its history, 26 centuries old.
Cap on the Grau-du-Roi for direct access to the beach
For the unconditional holiday "feet in the water", the Grau du Roi is the ultimate destination to conquer in Occitania. Park your motorhome in the dedicated parking area and you will have miles of beaches and all kinds of nautical activities!
If there is a remarkable and unavoidable place in the Grau-du-Roi, it is the Camargue, this place both authentic and wild is renowned for its fauna and flora (flamingos, white horses or even black bulls). Besides its fishing port, its beaches, its festive atmosphere and its lively alleys, a myriad of activities await you: visit the Salins du Midi, the Aigues-mortes and its fortified ramparts or the Saintes Marie de la Mer and its procession.
Discover also the identity of the Camargue: Equine and taurine breeding, which is a real know-how peculiar to the Occitania and to the south of France…
