Canet-en-Roussillon and the Les Flamants Roses hotel are in a wonderful location in the south of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, right on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, with the Pyrenees on the horizon and sunshine all the year round. The town offers all the services and fun activities you’d expect at a modern seaside resort whilst retaining the authentic feel of a protected wild coast, especially thanks to its lake. It’s listed as a “natural reserve” and offers an age-old environmental heritage, with a wide variety of fauna as well as being a meeting site for flocks of pink flamingos.
Holidays at the hotel can be sports-based or involve lying around doing nothing, family walks or challenges for groups of friends, cultural exploration or relaxing at the spa. Plus Canet-en-Roussillon has plenty of surprises in store for you in all of these areas. Water sports are obviously big around here, with paddle-surfing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, jet skiing, etc. Or you might prefer a trip in a boat and a picnic out at sea, diving lessons and a chance to explore the seabed... For those of you who enjoy inland exploration, the many walks in the surrounding area will reveal a whole host of typically Mediterranean landscapes and there’s also plenty of excitement to be had (canyoning, horse-riding, etc.)
When you see the south on TV, in reports, or on the map of France in the weather forecast, all you imagine is the beach and the sunshine, but when you get the chance - as we did - to enjoy a longer holiday at the Les Flamants Roses hotel, you discover Canet-en-Roussillon, how close it is to the lake and the whole natural reserve environment! We didn’t really know Occitania and Languedoc-Roussillon… Spending time here changes your perspectives. A seaside holiday really is about far more than the beach - there’s a genuine ambiance, the South of France really does have an identity all of its own
