La Baume is a large, busy site about 5.5 km from the long sandy beach of Fréjus-Plage, although with its fine and varied selection of swimming pools many people do not bother to make the trip. The pools, with their palm trees, are remarkable for their size and variety (water slides, etc) – the very large feature pool being a highlight. There is also an aquatic play area, two indoor pools with a slide and the new Armata spa area. The site has 240 adequately sized, fully serviced pitches, separated by hedges and most have shade. Although tents are accepted, the site concentrates mainly on caravanning. It becomes full in season.
Adjoining la Baume is its sister site, la Palmeraie, providing self-catering accommodation, its own landscaped pool, sports facilities and some entertainment to supplement that at la Baume. There are 500 large pitches with mains sewerage for mobile homes. La Baume’s convenient location has its downside as there is traffic noise on some pitches from the nearby autoroute – somewhat obtrusive at first but we soon failed to notice it. It is a popular site with tour operators.
