The Residence



Our Résidence Cap Med is ideally located in La Grau du Roi, a resort in the heart of the beautiful Camargue region in the Languedoc Roussillon in France. The property is also in close proximity to its Regional Natural Park. It’s just a five-minute walk to the marina, and just 2km from the Espiguette and Port-Camargue north beaches. Plus, the accommodation is handily close to local amenities, just 200m from the resort centre with its shops, bars and restaurants.

Le Grau du Roi is a lovely beach resort with its own marina, sitting snug between the Camargue Regional Natural Park and the beaches fronting the Mediterranean. Designed with holidaymakers in mind, this resort is a lovely destination be you a couple, family or group looking to explore the French countryside.



Our modern accommodation offers bright and airy apartments in a high-quality complex, complete with an outdoor swimming pool, a sauna, gym, spa massage rooms and a restaurant.

Apartments are furnished with double or single beds, a sofa bed, coffee table and storage. There’s a TV, dining table and chairs, and a kitchen fully-equipped with a microwave, ceramic glass hob, fridge, coffee pot, kettle, toaster and all crockery. The bathrooms include a shower and toilet. Sheets and towels are included in the apartment.


Board Options

All apartments at the Résidence Cap Med are self-catered, however, we do offer a restaurant on site, which serves a cold breakfast, and lunch and dinner with menus, on reservation.


The Resort


Le Grau du Roi

You may not have heard of Le Grau du Roi, but this typical seaside destination is very popular with French locals, who go to try pétanque and pastis. A favourite with Ernest Hemingway, the small resort hasn’t lost a jot of its charm with the increase in ice cream and French tourists.

It’s a traditional fishing port, with trawlers to-ing and fro-ing with the daily catch along the Chenal Maritime that divides the town. The resort also boasts 6 miles of beaches, surprisingly intermingled with the town to produce a happy-go-lucky seaside feel throughout the town.

Le Grau du Roi presents fun and laid-back holidaying in a pretty surrounding, not far from plenty of facilities to keep you ticking along. A short walk outside of the resort’s shops and restaurants you’ll find gorgeous beaches to one side, and the wetlands of the Natural Park to the other. The ancient city of Arles is also nearby, and the historic capital of the Languedoc, Montpellier, is not too far away for a daytrip.



Within the accommodation, we offer themed parties and a music bar, as well as bike rental and horse riding. When you’re looking to escape and explore the surrounding area, there’s a 4x4 safari to try, as well as boules, mini-golf, golf and tennis within the resort.

The tourist train will show you the must-sees, but renting a bike and following the new cycle path south to Espiguette beach is a lovely afternoon’s excursion, with just 3 cabins-cum-beach bars.

On the beaches in town, expect windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, fishing and all manner of aquatic sports. The resort also offers a funfair-type park in the name of Amigoland, complete with rides, slides, candyfloss and a floating bar.


Things to see

The old fishing port is well-worth a wander on a sunny afternoon into evening to watch the fishermen with their sea bass and crabs.

The wetlands of the park are the place to be if you like your views pink-legged and bendy-kneed – flamingos. The Etangs is the only place to catch sight of this many wild flamingos outside of Africa, in such a large flock. Take a peek into the underworld at Le Grau’s Seaquarium, with tanks of octopus and tropical fish, sea lions and seals, sharks and rays.
