Le Brasilia is a large & lively campsite on the Mediterranean Coast and is part of the Yelloh! village chain of campsites. It has a fantastic well designed water complex and has views directly over the mediterranean. A sandy path leads from the campsite directly onto a sandy beach. This is one of those french campsites which are well laid out with vegetation, flowers and shady paths.
The campsite is only a kilometre from the lively resort town of Canet en Roussillon on the Mediterranean Coast in the Languedoc Roussillon region of the South West of France.
The resort features a 9 km long sandy beach, a huge marina and for nature lovers there is a protected lake. The Catalan mountain, the Canigou, features as a backdrop.

Things to Do in the Area
Aqualand St Cyprien
If you have younger children or teenagers with you who would like to have a day in a water park then the excellent Aqualand at St Cyprien is well worth a visit. This is a large waterpark with an excellent selection of pools and slides. Suitable for toddlers and teenagers. It is the largest waterpark in Roussillon.
Local aquarium - great for younger children http://www.aquarium-canet.com
Vineyard tour at Domaine Treloar. The owner is an Englishman, is very knowledgable and makes some excellent wines. We also had a lovely lunch there.
The lively city of Perpignan (13 km) is a short drive away northbound.
Luna Park (Argelès) - 19 km
The Luna Park offers carnival rides, bowling, karting, crazy golf etc - great fun - and some days it offers half price rides - worth checking!
Collioure (27 km)
The lovely small town of Collioure, near the Spanish border, is definitely worth a visit. It was famous for the painters Matisse and Picasso who painted here. It has some colourful narrow streets to wander through and you can admire the colourful boats at the harbour.
Carcassone: 115km - walled town that is well worth a visit
Sigean - Reserve Africaine
Safari park with over 3,000 animals ! See Lions and Zebras as you drive through. But it can get quite busy in high season so if you are there at a busy time maybe you'd be best to try and go early as the queues can build up as you drive through the animals.
Château de Peyrepertuse
You can drive to this château in the mountains near to Perpignan and enjoy the great views and surrounding countryside.

We cannot guarantee that reviews of descriptions on this site are accurate, up to date or free from error. We have found that the campsites described are very good but we find that it is difficult to find a campsite which has 100% of what you are looking for. Also one person may love a busy campsite with lots of activities while someone else may love a quiet campsite with a small swimming pool. Actually we tend to be the latter ! So what we have done is highlight the good points of the sites and maybe point out a few of what we have found as slightly negative points. However we strongly recommend that you make full use of as many internet sources as possible before deciding about your holiday, including other review sites and Google maps etc.
