A family atmosphere
To the south of Argelès-Plage, at the point where the last foothills of the Albère mountains fall into the Mediterranean, the sandy coastline forms a cove where the hamlet of Racou nestles. More than a simple district, this place is almost a village in its own right and has kept its family atmosphere.
Narrow sandy streets
The white houses form narrow, shady streets through which floats a deliciously retro atmosphere; it is good to swim or walk along the rocks to discover tiny, wild coves.
Between sea and mountains
One of the most beautiful beaches in the region. Originally, there were only a few wooden cabins to welcome bathers. The first “hard” facilities appeared in the 1930s. Le Racou has kept its modest dimensions, and it is pleasant to sit on the terraces of the cafés and restaurants.
