General

  • Set in a pinewood a kilometre from the fortress at Salses-le-Château
  • A 10-kilometre drive from the beach of Le Barcarè
  • Outdoor pool with seated space; café with spacious terrace

Hole up at Camping Le Bois de Pins to be within walking distance of a famed French fortress, half an hour's drive from Spain and from Mediterranean beaches – and in a handsome pine forest a few minutes from the fishing and shellfish farming of Salses/Leucate lake.

Based about 10 kilometres from the sands of Le Barcarè, Le Bois de Pins is in a pinewood on a hillside in the Pyrénées-Orientales town of Salses-le-Château. The famed fortress nearby is the Fort de Salses, built by Spain towards the end of the 15th century and captured by the French 150 or so years later: its illustrious history can be investigated within a kilometre of the site (you can hire bikes from the Le Bois de Pins team).

Le Bois de Pins is a mid-sized site 20 to 25 kilometres from the Cathar castles. It has an outdoor pool with seated space alongside (parasols included if you seek some shade from the summer sun); a pétanque court, a games room, a playground and table football.

The café has a spacious terrace and a takeaway service; there's also a mini market selling a good variety of groceries.

    Staff at the restaurant and library. Kids loved the bouncy castle.

    Very small, cramped dirty and stony pitch. Impossible to stay clean. Thankfully we were only there one night as our pitch was on a stony terrace with other tents very close by.

    Schöner kleiner Campingplatz am Hang mit toller atmosphere, einer geselligen Bar mit toller Terrasse und eigener Bäckerei. wir sind auf der Durchreise nur eine Nacht dortgeblieben, nach späte Ankunft konnten wir immer noch was essen und morgens gab es warme Baguettes und Croissants. Sehr nettes Personal, absolut Hundefreundlich, es herrschte eine sehr tolle und entspannte Atmosphäre auf dem ganzen Campingplatz. Wir werden wiederkommen.

    Disliked: 

    Poor facilities, not good for disabled people, very hilly, recent fire around the site created smoke filled air in the evening, dog attacked by site owner's dog, on arrival no information including the entry code, so when going out on the first day could not access the site, pitch maintenance was poor, dirty, dog feces everywhere , other dog's roaming around free to poop everywhere including around our caravan.

Directions


Local attractions

Fort de Salses, within easy ambling or cycling distance, is pretty well known in these parts, seeing about 100,000 visitors a year. Its striking setting is def worth a visit: wander around under your own steam or book a guided tour in French, English, German, Spanish or Catalan.

More history can be had at the department capital of Perpignan (20 kilometres), or at the Cathar castles of Château de Quéribus and Château de Peyrepertuse, 20 and 25 kilometres away. Even more anciently, a drive of 40 kilometres will take you to a delve around the Gorges of Galamus, a protected area carved out among the Fenouillèdes massif's limestone cliffs.

Watersports are a popular pastime too for Le Bois de Pins guests, either from the beaches of Port Barcarès, Leucate and Franqui 10 to 15 or so kilometres away, or at the Salses/Leucate lake within about four kilometres.

For splashing watery days, Aqualand is 30 kilometres from the site; for fully adrenalised ones, you can tackle canyoning at the Galamus gorges between April and September.
