Argeles in September

Hi there,

My partner and I are shortly going to Argeles for a week. Does anyone know if Luna Park is open (we'll be there 8th - 14th Sept)?

Also I heard that BBQs are banned West of Argeles due to the dry weather, does anyone know if they are allowed nearer the beach this summer?

Lastly, if anyone has any insight into pretty towns to stop off at between Carcassonne (or a bit north) and Argeles your thoughts would be appreciated, we have 4 nights to work our way down - I've seen Narbonne, Beziers, Sete and Lecate look quite good but it's hard to tell - we will venture to perpignan and collioure while based in Argeles, along with anywhere else someone suggests?

I think Luna park will be closed but there is a phone number on their website. Where are you flying into? Sete is a bit away in the wrong direction but I think it's worth visiting.

You could, instead of driving towards the coast from Carcassonne, travel through Quillan, Esperaza and so on and visit the Cathar castles and the Gorge de Galamus. You will end up at Perpignan. It's a fantastic scenic drive with lovely towns and villages en route.

"does anyone know if they are allowed nearer the beach this summer?"

I very much doubt it and you will get into serious trouble. Yesterday 2 tourists set the mountain on fire near Les Bouillouses. They've been arrested.and will be fined - I hope very heavily. The firemen are still up there. Several people died last July at the Spanish border in a huge fire which lasted several days.

Lighting a fire in this season is not only dangerous and thoughtless, it is illegal.
