A camping nirvana for kids right on the Mediterranean coast

At one of the most central points in Southern France it’s no surprise Domaine la Yole has a roaring trade, both now and throughout history. In the Napoleonic era it was at a major crossroads and anyone rolling into town would know from the rows of greening vines that it was a good stop for local vino. In fact, there have been vineyards here since Roman times but it’s only in the last century that the place has truly been transformed, with an impressively vast cellar built, the plantations extended and wine bottled and labelled for proper commercial sales. If you’re looking for sniffing, swilling and sipping, then, you’ve come to the right place and along with tents, chairs and a bottle of sun tan lotion, a wine glass should definitely be top of your packing list.

It’s safe to say, though, this isn’t exactly camping among the grapes. The stripey vines cascade around the surroundings but, as the winery has grown, so to has the Domaine la Yole campsite. With over a thousand pitches it’s not a hillside hideaway but there’s no denying a clutch of pleasures it does still hold on to. Wine tasting, touring and cellar exploring are all a delight – the oak of the ginormous barrels lingers in the nostrils as long as the wine itself – and speedy access to the Mediterranean beaches is certainly not to be sniffed at.

Then there’s the tree-clad camping pitches themselves. True, there may be a bucket load of campers, but with an even larger number of trees covering the entire site it all has an airy, shaded feel that’s a real pleasure to pitch beneath. You can even pluck for larger ‘comfort’ pitches that have their own individual toilet blocks.

Facilities and activities could fill a small book: Swimming pools, bike rentals, canoe rentals for the nearby lake, boat rental on the beach, an adventure park, playgrounds, sports pitches, night markets, snack bars, petting farms... the list goes on. Perhaps it’s a big book they could fill, an Encycolpedia Britanica of camping things to do. Small book, big book, either way, it’s a place that occupies the kids, leaving you time to slope back to wine shop to buy another cheeky bottle. And when it does get too much and you want to slip away, try leaving the coast behind and heading back into the hills of the Parc Naturel du Haut-Languedoc – a vast network of trees and countryside with cooling streams to dabble in.

Nearby

The beach is the obvious choice. It's just a five hundred metres away. On the waterfront there is a centre where you can rent boats and jet skis, though for boating it's often better to wander back in land to the campsite's nearby lake and try canoeing instead – a quieter place to paddle. To really escape the crowds head inland to one of the several nearby regional parks. There is excellent walking, fishing and mountain biking to be had. History lovers, meanwhile, should visit the old towns of Beziers and Carcassonne.

Five Star Camping - with great shows

Domaine La Yole has been a campsite for fifty years now (2019). It used to be a vineyard. Part of it still is and there is extensive availability of their wines at prices to suit all budgets - a variety reflected in the campsite pitch options, though they never let you go as basic as some of the wine options. This campsite impresses from the start. A well appointed reception, with multi-lingual staff, reflecting the clientele of British, Belgian, Dutch, German and of course French. Some of the French campers are actually local to the region, which says something. Reception provide you with guidance for the site, pitches and provide vouchers to get souvenirs or discounts at the huge variety of site establishments. This campsite has a central village area which has characteristics of a much higher cost Mediterranean resort. They have little food shops, a supermarket, camping and sports equipment shop, the wine shop, bars, pizzeria, ice cream parlours, restaurants and more bars. And of course an arcade, mini golf and mini go-karts. Everything a holidaying family would want, that’s before we mention the farm, pool complex, adventure park and nearby sea. The icing on the cake is the really good quality shows put on for free at the central plaza each night. We’ve seen some fantastic shows here, which is why we come back year after year. Bathrooms are really clean, marble tiled and gave a high end hotel feel to them. Some pitches come with their own private facilities. All are electric and watered, fridges can also be hired at quite reasonable cost. If you want to know the bad things: numbers of available showers and toilets are reduced after 23.30, and the seats near the front for the popular shows are taken about an hour before the show starts. Though if you sit at the front it is likely you will end up on the stage, to all round mirth! The site has strong security and fairly strict about noise and etiquette, but relaxed about the important things such as having space for barbecues and filling your pitch with gazebos and luxury inflatable sofas! A real gem of a campsite. Impossible to experience all on offer in less than a week.

Amazing !!!

Hi we had an absolutely brilliant stay at Domaine La Yole, from the start of our holiday we new this holiday park was going to be good, we arrived at the reception and were treated impeccably by the reception staff all our questions were answered fully, with our French speaking not being brilliant the staff there spoke brilliant English everywhere we went, the washing facilities were the best I’ve ever found in 10 yrs of camping, the food and entertainment were fantastic with an abundance of choice and great value for money, the onsite shopping facilities catered for everything we needed. As campers we found the pitches extremely generous and although the site was busy there was never a problem with noise so we all slept well, our little boy thoroughly enjoyed the other parks entertainment from a visit to the farm, the high rope adventure park and the amazing swimming pools and slides. The winery was a very enjoyable experience and a great opportunity to understand more of the history and how the wine was produced. As a runner and cyclist I found the surrounding area great for both with some very good cycling route through sleepy villages. All in all I couldn’t find a problem with Domaine La Yole and I’m looking forward to returning next year.
