Top 4 reasons to love Argelès-sur-Mer in autumn

On the Catalan coast, shellfish are not lamenting the loss of summer. Quite the contrary, in fact! With its lovely orange hues, autumn conquers the hearts of its visitors. From beaches to villages, the region gradually reveals its wild side. All the while preserving the warm atmosphere we all love so much. Autumn at the seaside starts now in Argelès-sur-Mer!

1 - To rhyme mystery and fresh air

The arrival of autumn also marks the return of cooler temperatures. It’s the perfect time to swap the air-conditioning for a breezy walk in the fresh air. To add a little spice to your walk, consider the Baludik app. Available on Apple and Android, it offers a wide choice of fun, digital experiences. It’s the ideal way to compete with family and friends!

Mystery and gum ball

Do you like a challenge and are you the determined type? With our Espionnage à Argelès treasure hunt, put yourself in the shoes of French soldiers and check out the state of the town’s defenses. It’s a chance to discover the ramparts from another angle!

2 - To aim la ̶l̶u̶n̶e̶ Tour

Always further, always higher. And autumn isn’t going to stop us! On the contrary, the season lends itself perfectly to a number of hikes in the Pyrenees. Starting with the Tour de la Massane, Argelès-sur-Mer’s emblematic circuit. Nestled at an altitude of over 800 metres, the monument offers a 360° panorama of the Roussillon plain. Now’s the time to take advantage of the cool autumn weather to reach new heights.

 What fem?*

For twice the magic, we recommend starting the hike mid-afternoon. Once you’ve reached the summit, you’ll be able to enjoy the warm lights of late afternoon. Extra charge for sunset and orange hues. Don’t forget your headlamp for a safe descent!

3 - To mount on his high horse

Autumn also means new landscapes. And new experiences! For a moment out of time, head to one of the region’s ranches for a horseback ride across the Tech. Helmet on and reins in hand, let your trusty steed guide you between fish and reeds. All in the midst of melon-colored vegetation.

4 - For love lounging

In Argelès-sur-Mer, idleness is a veritable art of living. All year round! In autumn, we like to share the pleasures of simple things while enjoying the warm colors of the landscape. Our favorite spot? The Château Valmy park and its 5 hectares of vegetation. The ideal setting for a picnic in good company. On the menu: escalivade and Catalan salad. Extra pumpkin pie to fill up on autumnal flavors. Enjoy!
