La Yole Wine Resort, more than a campsite - heaven in Valras Plage
A stone’s throw from the coastal resort of Valras Plage, in the Hérault department, the 5-star campsite, La Yole Wine Resort, welcomes holidaymakers looking for a top-of-the-range open-air hotel by the sea. With its aquatic park, leisure facilities, quality holiday-hire accommodation and its exceptional services, this establishment combines all of the criteria for successful holidays.
A 5-star campsite by the sea
As its name indicates, the La Yole Wine Resort campsite is, above all the history of a wine-producing estate. The first vines were planted nearly 2,000 years ago when the Gallo-Roman era was in full swing. In 1771, the year Napoleon Bonaparte is baptised, the vines take the name of Domaine de la Yole, and the wine produced on-site is then recognised as such and exported throughout the entire region. In the 1950s, under the leadership of a new visionary owner the vineyard begins a fabulous transformation. In 1969, he decides to transform part of the vineyard into a campsite. The first holidaymakers pitch their tents there from the following year onwards. Since then, the Valras Plage campsite has not stopped going upmarket It has operated under the name of La Yole Wine Resort since 2009 and obtained its 5-star tourist industry rating in 2011. Nowadays, the estate integrates a campsite, a vineyard, an adventure park as well as an outdoor farm...In 2019, it celebrates its 50th season, a half-century providing outdoor well-being and happiness to its holidaymakers.
Located 4 kilometres further south of the seaside resort of Valras Plage, the La Yole Wine Resort enjoys a setting which is attractive, to say the least. The vines surround a large part of the site, whilst the beach is 2 minutes on foot from the campsite. The Plage des Mouettes, is the Valras Plage resort’s wildest beach. Lovers of idleness will appreciate its ultra-fine sand, and the view which stretches up to the seaside resort.
This campsite with its Hérault aquatic park stretches over a total area of 23 hectares, which is delightfully landscaped. Countless trees enable a large proportion of some 1,273 available plots to be shaded. Although a third of them are intended to accommodate campers and their tent, caravan or camper, two-thirds of the plots are nowadays occupied by holiday-hire accommodation.
A half-century serving holidaymakers
To meet the various expectations of its holidaymakers the La Yole Wine Resort has a diverse and varied selection of holiday rentals, some of which are named after major French vines...These can take the form of mobile homes, furnished tents and small one-storey lodges.
