Banyuls sur mer - combines the atmosphere of a lively old fashioned seaside resort with a picturesque quality which makes it really rather special.

Our Client Reviews of Camping Les Pins:
This wonderful campsite is for tents, mobile homes and is also used by the holiday company Siesta which do overnight coach holidays with lovely chalets of differing sizes. We, stayed with Siesta in a large chalet. There is a bar which also does takeaway pizzas. The shower block is immaculate. The best is the pool which has a foot bath before you go in ( it is opened at 10am) plenaty of sun loungers and parasols. Pool is heated with a jacuzzi and a baby pool. There is a big water slide as well. Very friendly and clean. I recommend.
Sue - June 2018
Just arrived home from a 17 day holiday with siesta travel stayed in a two bed lodge what little gem of resort. Site was perfect, well run, reps first class, local supermarkets stocked all your needs at competitive prices. Plenty of good quality resturants, bars are plentiful and the prices of good wine were ridiculous.
Ben - June 2018
Good sized campsite with many facilities and you will have booked with siesta. The reps here are very friendly and are visible most days. There is a fairly good camp bar that does an outstanding rave on a Monday night. The surrounding area of Argeles plage has a massive amount of bars and restaurants and tourist shops and on the plage or beach are also many small theme play areas. There is much to do in the immediate area and a car is not necessary. There is a tourist bus that does a wide circuit of the town of Argeles and the beach. Opposite the campsite is a small supermarket that sells all you need. Also some eateries. Wi-fi is available at an extra cost from reception. Free parking
Ray R - July 2016
Great location, right near the action so you never need a car to get around. The site itself is fine, if a little average. The facilities aren't anything to write home about. The pool area was just newly opened but for the size of the site it's not big enough, I feel they could've have done so much more. The bar area is fine, drinks are pricey as is the food. The area itself is brilliant for families, lots to keep the kids entertained and the euro bus (tickets only €1 each!) is absolutely brilliant for getting around the wider area and to all the lovely port villages
GorgeousGeordie - August 2015
self catering lodges very clean and everything you would need - pleanty of bars and restuarants wen you go into the village and the promenade - also night market at the marina on Friday night plus other market days in Argeles went with Siesta and the reps are very nice we went in July this year and Paul and Heather were most helpful at all times if there was a problem it was sorted straight away - have booked again for 2016
Hebe M - July 2015
end of July, Siesta, 3 adults one child age 7. very clean swimming pool. life guard on all times very clean and tidy you are given a bag to put your shoes in. Siesta reps Paul and Heather could,nt be more helpful. every day they would go round asking if everything was ok.Out side the campsite 5 mins walk fresh bakery, 10 mins walk beach and all resurants and shops. if you like tapas try the Casa Del Joker we ate out every night all the food was really good. plenty for children to do, nice harbour. We had a day trip to Barcelona. we loved it that much we booked before we came away. Argeles Sur Mer is a lovely place. try the crazy golf. lots of fun and the night market. Prices same as in England. super market some of the food was cheaper than here
cjm011 - July 2015
Having returned today after two weeks self catering with Siesta Holidays in one of their six berth lodges, we had a great time. It was our first visit to France having stayed at a number of sites in Spain with Siesta, Haven, and self booked. The site is smaller than what we are used to but we knew that before we came.
It has only one swimming pool with some very odd rules, like males having to wear tight swim wear and no footwear can be worn around the pool. There is a foot bath you must walk through before entering the pool area so I presume it is to help maintain cleanliness. Also any footwear you take to the pool must be put inside a bag and not on the floor. We nicknamed one of the lifeguards Hawk Eye because he never missed a trick. They were never rude though they would simply hand you a new bag to put your shoes in of you left them out. The pool was immaculately clean as a result though and what astounded us was that you could get sunbeds at anytime of the day unlike in Spain. We put this down to it being 90% French guests at the site who don't get up early to claim beds and the majority when they leave the pool, take their towels with them freeing up the beds for others.
Our two Siesta reps Paul and Heather were brilliant, constantly calling to see if everything was OK and never too busy to chat. Reported the pilot light going out and a bulb blown and both were sorted within 15 mins.
The entertainment is the only aspect of the site that loses it the fifth start. It is only in French but we didn't really mind that, it was very intermittent, some nights there were no acts on, some nights were good acts (hypnotist) and others, awful acts (Turkish dancers). As we are a family that believes a holiday is what YOU make it, this didn't bother us but I know it would bother some. We either took the five minute walk into the town where there are loads of lively restaurants and bars and the town authorities put loads of events and activities on day and night or we had a barbecue on our veranda and played games.
The beach is excellent and not anywhere near as busy as some of the Spanish ones we have been to.
Lovely town to visit, nice site and Siesta are an excellent holiday operator..
James J - July 2015
I visited Camping Les Pins is August with my wife and 2 children. We all really enjoyed it. The site is packed with charm and has a very relaxed and calm atmosphere. The pool is very inviting, plenty of chairs and sun beds around the pool area, even in August we never struggled to find a sun bed even in the afternoons.
We ate several times at the restaurant on site. The food was very fresh, very tasty and good value for money. All the staff in the bar/restaurant were very pleasant to talk to and very friendly.
My children really enjoyed the play area and games areas. Our lodge was extremely clean and very well presented to us. We stayed in a Chalet 5. This had a great veranda for sitting outside throughout the day and at night listening to the entertainment. Very nice, bright, modern accommodation. All our reps were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.
Our journey to resort and back were great. Latest films on the Premier Coaches kept us all entertained. Drivers kept us well informed along our journeys, sufficient stops in good English and French services and of course our hostess, who looked after us to and from resort made sure we had everything we needed serving us tasty snacks and drinks.
Argeles-sur-Mer is a great destination for couples and families. There is a lot to do in this resort. Plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, wonderful clean beach and plenty of fairs on the front for children. We took the boat to Collioure which is a must to see while you are on holiday, a very picturesque place. Will most certainly return in the future.
Carl - August 2014
We stayed on this park in August 2014 in accommodation provided by Siesta holidays as a party of six comprising of two adults and four teenagers ranging from 15 to 18.
We stayed here for a week having stayed at the all action Park Playa Bara near Tarragona the previous week and this was quite the opposite in the way of activities, shows, vibe and culture, especially for the teenagers.
This is a really good and relaxing campsite. There is not a massive amount in the way of evening entertainment (none in English) but there are many bars and restaurants in nearby Argeles Plage. There is a bar that provides snacks and a limited menu that doubles up as the small entertainment area in the evening. Adjacent is the obligatory Petanque area and we had some fun with the locals beating them at their own game. The whole park is relaxed and has a friendly atmosphere.
We didn't use the pool as a) the weather wasn't fantastic for us and b) the teenage lads never like the idea of the mandatory tight shorts rule for boys/men.
Out and about and within a half mile walk is Argeles Plage with lots of shops and places to eat and drink. I found the area very expensive compared with the prices in Spain the previous week (just 10 miles over the border). A soft drink would be around 3 euros, a beer between 7 and 8 and a 2 course menu du jour between 15 and 20. There is no supermarket on site but there is one across the road from the site and though it was nothing like what you'd pay in Spain or the UK, it was quite reasonable for a southern French resort.
All in all I would recommend this site for a relaxing break but I'm not sure if it's for older children/teenagers
Vincent P - August 2014
Just returned from a ten night stay with family. The campsite is as the title says "Rustic", but it has a lot of charm and appeal. The pool is big enough for the site, never had to look very hard to find a sun bed. The bar come restaurant is all in one. Really friendly and all the food we had was great, basic menu but all delicious and freshly cooked.
Travelled with Siesta, as usual, the 5 chalet was really nice and clean. Not much lounge space but for summer when you are not in the lodge very much or when you are, you are on the veranda so never an issue for us. Resort reps were great as all Siesta reps are, very friendly and helpful, nothing too much trouble.
The chalet was close to the bar, heard the entertainment which was either Karaoke or bingo which does not appeal to us, but the French liked it. Disco Stu was good and if you are in your lodge can be quite loud, never bothered us though, stopped before mid night and I have 2 young children that were no stopped from getting to sleep.
Argeles is a lovely place. Its busy, loads of shops, restaurants, bars etc..... great beach. Would certainly return here in the future
Carib1 - August 2014
We went in May so the site was fairly quiet, but still good, the pool is one of the best we have ever used; warm, very clean with a water slide and plenty of loungers free of charge.
Nice bar area, with snack bar and food available, but as stated early season so cannot comment when operating full. The site is British run with British staff, so language ok, but in Argeles itself very little english spoken, even the restaurants do not use English section (only a very few) but we should remember this is not Spain, which caters more for British. I have only a smattering of French but we managed 90% of the time with no problems and many laughs; you go to France and this is France as the French live, I enjoyed it.
Argeles beach is quiet with gravelly sand, which is smoothed and cleaned all day long, with plenty of fun rides for the kids. Lovely walk down to the port with the marina, where you can get plenty of boat rides, numerous cafes and restaurants but not a particularly cheap place to eat out, the average snack meal for three of us was about 25 euros, (£20.00) and these were burger type meals and drinks, although very filling, more substantial that Macs or KFC. The bus service is very good in season with the One Euro Bus taking you most places. The reps were very helpful although we had no cause to use their services really.
As said, we went early season, will be much more lively in full season, although being senior citizens with a 7 year old this suited us, and our grandson was not bored once. All told, good holiday reasonably priced, although if you do not self cater, meals can be quite expensive, but perhaps we did not look around enough for cheaper places.
Ian - June 2014
Went on a 7 night trip with Siesta. The campsite is basic but tidy and just the right size for kids - two berth caravan neat and close to pool. Pool immaculate. need to go off site to the nearby shop and kids clubs are in French. Entertainment mixed - mainly French. Unspoilt by commercialism this site was pretty, pleasant quiet and clean and so close to town. Great value for money and would definitely recommend. We loved Les Pins and had a superb holiday here - hiring bikes and cooking BBQs most evenings. Take in the local wine!
Anna – Sept 2013
We went to Port Grimaud last September so I will probably end up comparing the two.
The lodges are situated opposite the bar/entertainment area and very close to the pool area. The entertainment is all in French and catered directly at young children, it is loud and the music is on until midnight, this didn't bother us in the slightest.
There is a takeaway attached to the bar we had food from there on our second night and it was really lovely but please do not be expecting lots of choice. Port Grimaud has 3 restaurants on site and the choice is amazing. However, just outside the main entrance you have every possible food option within a 5 minute walk and nearly all food places offer take away.
The pool area is superb at this site, Port Grimaud doesn't have a pool but this one is lovely. It’s a large square pool with baby pool attached and there are 3 water slides in a row on a separate bit. There is no drinks allowed around the pool and no surfing style shorts, they are strict about this.
The Siesta office has a lot of useful information about getting out and about, local markets etc and the Euro Bus.
Argeles is a lovely resort full of shops, bars and restaurants and the beachfront is particularly lovely in the evenings, it’s a very vibrant, buzzy place.
We took a boat ride to Colliere, can highly recommend this lovely fishing village, very French and very stunning. Yes Argeles is a purpose built resort and not as high end as Port Grimaud but it’s much cheaper than Port Grimaud, very laid back and relaxed. It was shorts, casual clothing and no airs and graces at this resort which is exactly what we were looking for. Loads more we didn't get round to doing including the old village, Perpignan etc. We have already decided to book again for the same time next year, we loved it.
Anon - August 2013
C'est chouette!! We had a very memorable holiday in Les Pins, July 2012, the campsite is very chilled with all the amenities one would expect.
There is an animations team on hand to offer various entertainment, a free children's club ran several mornings a week, (my daughter went to it, she was the only English speaking child there, but this didn't deter her, she knew the fabulous Sandy, organiser of the children's club, speaks faultless English). My daughter would come back with friendship bracelets, beads, necklaces that she had made, face painted and temporary tattoos from the 'groovey' club!
Entertainment was good on an evening, though my only criticism would be, Siesta have a prime location on the campsite near to all amenities, this is great for the pool and bar, during the day but when the sun goes down, and the entertainment starts, it can get a bit lively!
Les Pins is very close to the beach and all that Argeles sur Mer has to offer.
Although we had our car with us, we made use of the incredible public transport France offers. We took the 1 euro bus to Collioure, where we spent the morning in the castle which the children loved, then dragged them around the gorgeous 'chi chi' boutiques in the afternoon. A few pleasurable mornings were spent in the beautiful old town of Argeles, where we stocked up with local produce from the market.
You really are spoilt for choice of things to do and see in this region.
A bientôt France!
Helen - May 2013
We stayed with Siesta last year in mid-July for two weeks and had a fantastic time. The reps Ash and Emma were very helpful throughout our stay and always had time for you, regardless of their busy schedule. The site is well situated to the town and the handy supermarket is just opposite the entrance to the site.
The Siesta accommodation is situated opposite the Bar area but we found this fine although we do not have young children so the music at night didn't really bother us, we didn't think it was excessively loud anyway. We enjoyed our stay last year and hope to return again this summer.
It is so much cheaper for everything in this area compared to Prairies were we had stayed for many years previously.
Richard B - July 2012
Went in the last week of September 2012 so very quiet things shutting down. The couple who manage the Siesta site were brilliant always helpful and full of information-lodge was well equipped and satisfactory, set in wooded avenues.
Argeles was very clean everywhere. Transport via euro bus and little trains in the season were good value, also a wine cooperative in the centre plage, which sold wine from the barrel by the litre, was well worth a visit. You would be advised to have basic french to get the best out of the holiday - nearby Couliere was wonderful original with shopping, beaches, places to eat.
Valery M - September 2012
Our Siesta Lodges are located in a flat part of the site, however Camping Les Pins is not adapted for those with mobility problems and some key facilities are accessed only by steps, such as the main campsite reception, the bar terrace and the swimming pool area. The swimming pool is accessed by steps without a handrail into the water
Main access routes and roadways within the site are tarmac/hard surfaces and the aisles that lead from the central roadway to our lodges have sandy/gravelled surfaces.
Access from ground level into your Siesta Lodge is via wooden stairs and we do not have lodges that are adapted for wheelchairs. If you would like any further advice on the suitability of our Lodges for your requirements our Sales Team would be pleased to help
