Lose yourself for a few days in this wonderfully located aire. Still our favourite. This year (2012) the price will be 7.20€ although we snuck in before April 1st and had a couple of nights FOC.
On a gravel site almost on the beach it is a perfect spot for a few days relaxation. The charge payable for parking includes sanitation services. There is no electricity. It is a huge site and is in two parts. Many of the pitches on the side by the sea directly front the wide sandy beach.
There are restaurants within walking distance but the supermarket is a good walk or cycle ride away. As is common in many of these big aires a boulanger visits the site in a van in the morning!
Leucate aire is also close to many seafood restaurants around the market where the catch is brought in. It is evident that moules are the order of the day! It is wonderfully flat and a perfect place to unhook your bikes and have a ride along cycle paths by the banks of the inland waterway up to the port. The area itself has lots of attractions but has a lovely uncrowded and open feel to it.
