Le Bois de Valmarie, a piece of paradise in Argeles sur Mer
It is on the heights of Racou, a former fishing village of Argelès sur Mer in the Pyrenees Orientales, transformed with charm into a seaside neighbourhood, that le Bois de Valmarie is settled. This 5-star campsite, a member of the Sirène Holidays group, is a charming holiday resort in the south of France which leaves nobody unmoved…
A dream campsite
The campsite is located on one of the highest points by the sea in Argelès sur Mer, on a hill with cork oaks overlooking the Mediterranean, the highest peak of which is some ten or so metres above sea level. The Le Bois de Valmarie campsite offers its residents high-end accommodation and holiday resort conditions amongst the most top-of-the-range of this seaside resort in the Pyrénées Orientales.
This family friendly campsite, in the heart of a site that has managed to preserve its authenticity, its calm and its art of living, is a little piece of paradise on Earth where relaxation, idleness and a laid-back lifestyle are more than mere promises.
Favouring above all the comfort of its residents, le Bois de Valmarie has made the choice to abandon traditional camping, so it is not possible any more to install a tent, a caravan or a camper on the provided pitches. At the beach, three types of mobile homes await the tourists.
These modern and premium mobile homes are exclusively designed for the campsites of the Sirène Holidays Group. They feature lots of equipments and most of them are air-conditioned and have a shaded terrace.

Within this establishment, and around this high-quality rental accommodation, there are many facilities guaranteeing tourists a stay which they will not quickly forget. Like the water park of le Bois de Valmarie, consisting of a beautiful turquoise lagoon and a fully heated paddling pool with sunbathing areas around the pools, offering the swimmers a breathtaking panoramic view on the Mediterranean Sea and the foothills of the Pyrenees. Every campsite facility has been developed and studied to satisfy and meet the needs of campers.
Proof of this comes with the campsite’s wellness centre. Set aside for adults, the latter consists of a gym, a sauna and a whirlpool bath. Plenty take care of your body during your stay in Argeles sur Mer.
The restaurant and mini-market of the Le Bois de Valmarie campsite enable you to enjoy delicious dishes, and to go shopping without having to take the car and leave the campsite. Every week during the high season, the restaurant terrace welcomes many night entertainment events, such as evening concerts, magic shows and other events.
Among the other facilities on the Le Bois de Valmarie campsite, we note the presence of several outdoor playgrounds, ping-pong tables and water slides at the pool. There is a whole range of facilities especially intended for children and the very young!
Between Collioure and Argelès
An important seaside resort, Argelès sur Mer, in the Pyrénées Orientales is, thanks to its hours of sunshine and its beautiful beaches, a leading tourist destination. At the crossroads of many tourist sites, it boasts an ideal geographic location.
To realize this, you should come and stay on le Bois de Valmarie. Settled on the heights of Racou, an extension of the port and the marina of Argelès sur Mer, this establishments is only some hundred metres from the city centre and the beaches of this resort. Better yet, a path along the coast allows campers to join Collioure and Port Vendres in a few minutes on foot, while enjoying an exceptional natural heritage.
Steep cliffs and little coves of pebble stones or fine sand compose indeed this exceptional beautiful coastline, a wild coast called 'Vermeille' extending from Racou to the Spanish border (the city of Portbou is located only 30 kilometres further South).
Collioure, at 5 kilometres from Le Bois de Valmarie, boasts an important historical heritage, with its royal castle, its fortified church and its Fort Saint Elmo. The beauty of this small village by the sea has always made it a favourite stop, and notably has been frequented by many artists, like Picasso, Dali and Matisse.
North of the campground, the cities of Carcassonne, Perpignan and Narbonne are also worth a visit and you should discover these cities during your stay in French Catalonia...
