Mumsnet were invited to review Camping Le Bois de Valmarie - which turns out to be a bit of a find, as campsites go. Perched on a hillside a couple of hundred metres from the French Med, it has the lovely, relaxed feel of a small site that's charmed visitors for many, many years.
At first glance, it's a little bit down-at-heel. One small shop, an OKish bar/restaurant and mobile homes that have definitely been round the campsite block a bit. Ours, like many on the site that aren't privately owned, was small, had no air con (not ideal in sweltering Med climes) and very little outside space.
But then there's the pool - or pools, to be more precise. Prepare for your children's gobs to be smacked! The three main pools in the complex are linked by waterfalls and ("again, again!") water chutes but there's space enough to swim, too. There's also a top-notch toddler/small child pool, with well-designed space all around it from which you can watch your progeny paddle and splash. There's a good does-what-it-says-on-the-tin poolside snack bar, and an astroturf sunbathing terrace for those whose skin doesn't lobster-ise as fast as mine. And, as the pool complex is right at the top of the hill, it has the most stunning views over the bay of ArgelRead moreLess
