Holiday 2009

We are considering Canet as our holiday destination in last May, early June with three children under 10. We are toying between renting a villa/apartment or staying at the Mar Estang campsite, mainly because of its proximity to the beach etc. Any recommendations from anyone as to which option would be better? I have read various reviews for the campsite, some very bad and some good - the more I read, the more confused I become! Would be grateful for any advice!

Thanks!

It is difficult to decide what is better for you !

May and June will be very quiet compared to July and August. There may not be many activities at Mar Estang for your children and it rather way off the center. It all depends where the villa you want to rent is located.

Thanks very much for your reply. The villa is near the Chateau Esparrou? Its says its about 10 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes from the old town. It has a lot of child toys etc in the grounds and a pool. What do you think?!

Thanks,

Ursula

Chateau Esparrou is definitely not in the center either but closer to it than Mar Estang - and you will need a car to get to the beach especially with small children.

The "old town" does not have much to offer except shops and restaurants.
