Parc reviews

Parc highlights

Bois de Valmarie is a fabulous parc set on a hillside, offering fantastic views over Argelès Bay. The stunning split-level pool complex will delight the whole family, linked by waterfalls, waterchutes and a waterslide, with sun terrace and loungers all around to soak up the mediterranean sun. The restaurant and bar are popular with the parc guests, as are the scuba diving lessons and bicycle hire. There are plenty of beaches to choose from, the nearest of which, Le Racou, is just across the road from the parc. Also within easy reach, just 2km away is the bustling resort of Argelès Plage, with a great selection of bars, restaurants and fun activities, on both land and water. Trains from the nearby railway can occasionally be heard on parc.
