Stopped here for 2 nights on our way through to Spain and coming back in August when family will be down and looking forward to returning. Not many down sides to La Yole - bring heavy duty pegs, ant powder, and whatever you prefer in the way of candles or whatever for the mozzies. Not the cheapest but everything you want is here. That's it. Everything else is good.
Guessing you wouldn't be thinking of coming here if you cant stand noise but the 'animations' do finish by 11ish. The beach is close and a safe walk. Everything here is pretty child friendly. Toilets are spotlessly clean (but be warned - unisex). Supermarche, , shop & pattiserie are good and not too badly priced. Wine shop, restaurant, snack bars and a bar too are all centrally located. No lifeguard on the pool which has full size slides so parents need to be present. Great reception staff and everyone friendly as befits a holiday destination but we all have stories of places that arent.
We wanted to camp in our Aztec Falcon 8 somewhere warm and sunny so chose La Yole on the Med as a destination and could not have chosen a better more family friendly site.
From the polite security guard who meets you through to the brilliant reception, supermarket, pool and all their other staff this is a site to beat all others. Our pitch in their Reglisse area had it own tap and drainage was a great size, flat, shaded and the perfect distance from their regularly washed and well sized wash block.
The bakery was superb and would recommend their Croissants any day, the shop and supermarket were adequate if a little pricy but we did our ‘big shop’ in the Hyper you and Lidl at Serignan, this site has its own very busy information office where you can post the obligatory postcard home as well as get info for the many activities available.
We stayed for 10 days and rented a fridge throughout for 50 euros and this was a great help in the hot weather. The daily 500m trip to the beach is worth while as the beach was clean and ran on for miles and at the La Yole beach entrance you can wash off the excess sand as there are several showers.
The evening entertainment was ideal, with dancing for younger ones up to 8:30 then at 9 o’clock the usual Euro singing dancing on their open air stage or you could take your empty water bottle to the wine shop and fill up with great wine at brilliant prices.
A truly laid back site with great facilities, we hope to go back 2014.
We have just come back from a 2 week tour of France and stayed at domaine la yole for 7 nights.
It's a very busy site with lots going on. The pitches are a nice size, mainly sand and ours had the electric and water tap on it.
The roads around the site can be a bit tight in places as people park in front of their pitches and can be a bit tricky getting round if you have a large motorhome or a large car and caravan combination.
The beach is great, about 5 minutes walk from the side entrance of the site, it gets busy but we didn't have trouble finding space.
You can walk into valras plage along the beach, along the road or get the land train which we did twice, it costs about 15 euro for a family of 5 return.
There are various shops in valras plage, including a lidl just around the corner from the harbour which we found quite good value. There is also large supermarkes about 10 minutes away in Serginan.
The pools around the site and the entertainment was brilliant, my three children all under 7 loved it, the entertainment was varied between, dj's, cabaret, magic and dance acts, The on site bakery was lovely, having fresh baguettes and croissants most mornings. We used the takeaway one night and had a pizza which was good value and we tried the restaurant on site twice as it was so good, reasonably priced and excellent service.
The only negative side I would say is its loud, if you are in a tent you wouldn't really be able to settle off to sleep til the entertainment finishes around 11. 30, the pitch we were on also was quite close to the site perimeter and you could hear the entertainment from the other nearby campsites, unfortunately one night this turned into an all mightier and was still going on at 8 the next morning with dance music, although we did get to sleep eventually, and most nights we went to the entertainment so it didn't bother us.
We would go back maybe in the future but want to explore more of France before we do.
Just got back from a 2 week stay at this site. We found the facilities very clean and all staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in one of thier safari style tents which doesn't have a toilet or shower but this was no problem as the toilet was kept very clean and good showers. Our 4 year old enjoyed the play area and the mini disco which was on 6 nights of the week (but found it a bit late as it didn't start until 8:30).
The site winery was a big bonus with wine being between 1. 50-2. 20 Euros/litre and a good taste. The bakery was good with a wide selection of French breads and cakes.
Their is a Super you nearby so you're not limited to the well stocked on site super market.
The beach is easily with in walking distance.
Swimming pools were great fn for the kids with even a couple of pools which were mainly used just by adults
We would use this campsite again but due to the size we would personally not go in peak times.
We are just back from 2 weeks at la yole, we arrived late and were given a card for the security gates but had to find our own way to our pitch, it wasn't easy to find and wasn't as big as we had expected, it was very soft ground, just dust/sand most of it, most pitches have hedges and trees to shelter, and you will need an adaptor for the electric hook up.
The toilet block in the orange area was fine, it is cleaned daily and had toilet paper but no toilet seats and its mixed gender.
The pool area is great, hard to get a lounger unless your up early but plenty of space to sunbathe, there is a pool bar.
The facilities on the site are great from the well stocked supermarket, the bakery, the fast food restaurant to the main restaurant and the bar, we ate and drank at them all and had nothing to fault!
Short walk from a great beach although we would recommend going further down the beach where there is a beach cafe, showers and rocks to to break the waves and and its shallower for younger kids.
The entertainment was ok, some nights its just disco or karaoke, the Michael Jackson act was really good, the kids disco starts at half 8 and the main entertainment at half 9 which I thought was a good thing, the kids entertainment is a mixture of nationalities not all British songs.
The site also has a kids club twice a day which our kids went to a couple of times, and they seemed to enjoy it.
Most of the staff speak a good range of languages to cater for the mainly Brits, Dutch French and German that use it. We enjoyed our stay and would return again!
