Just outside historic Narbonne, next to countryside and the lake, a perfect base for the Mediterranean beaches, medieval Carcassonne, and the Cathar country.
The very friendly owners of this well maintained lakeside site are eager to welcome you, and to offer very keen prices out of the main peak period. If you want a family run site that is a spacious and comfortable base in which to relax between trips out, with great road links into this fascinating region, then La Nautique fits the bill. Pitches can take the largest of units, and the individual wash blocks on each pitch are a definite plus, while windsurfers enjoy direct access to the lake, where you can also take out canoes or pedaloes. The beaches of the Mediterranean are only a short drive away, while day trips into the spectacular and atmospheric hills, mountains, gorges and fortresses of the Cathar country should definitely include a trip to the Corbières and Minervois vineyards. Spanish Catalonia is also within reach, and the stunning medieval fortified town of Carcassonne is well worth the short trip along the motorway, as is the beautiful fortress of Salses, constructed by the famous military engineer Vauban.

Things we liked.
Easy to get to off the motorway well signposted.
Friendly helpful staff helped us when we needed to take our car to main dealer for minor repair.
Staff helped us in locating a pharmacist and doctor when I had a chest infection
Decent well appointed site.
The site restaurant was fine
What we didn't Like.
Effectively close to an industrial estate.
The campsite is adjacent to a lake where we expected some form of beach not available. Although not the sites fault the areas around the lake were very littered.
The nearest beach is at Gruissan although not far away we travelled on very narrow roads to get there and driving on the wrong side of the road for us it was little hair raising at times with speeding drivers.
Although the camp site brochure shows cycle paths the people on the site with whom we spoke did not cycle any where as they thought it too far and dangerous with the as above drivers.
We walk not cycle there was little or nothing to walk to in easy range.
Narbonne plage is shown as 16km ( I think) away. However the time taken to get there either via Narbonne( busy place to drive in ) or Gruissan it seems much further than this.
A lot of mosquitos on the site. The site did have 2 ( as far as I could see) insect zappers but needs more as both my wife, my self and co campers were bitten frequently .
Visited Narbonne a couple of times during our stay but in our view not an overly exciting destination
A decent friendly site but poorly situated and we and others we talked with felt a little restricted in what we could do and where could go
The big probelm was location if the site was near narbonne plage say, it would be ideal.
At the end of our stay we chatted with several other people close by and the general concensus appeared to be our visits would be the first and last time.
