At your service since 1969

Dear Customers,


For 50 years now, the entire staff of L’etoile d’or  has been at your service to improve your holiday spot.


1969: Mr. and Mrs. Marcoux visit  Argelès sur Mer for the first time. It was love at first sight for this small village nestled between sea and mountains. This is where they will build their future by buying a small 2 hectare campsite.


1970 / 1971: already projects - new features

After a year of operation, Mr. and Mrs. Marcoux have plans: in 1970 they filed a building permit for the creation of a grocery  and a restaurant. The following year, "l’etoile d’or " inaugurated its first swimming pool.


1976: the first mobile homes in Argelès sur Mer


Mr. and Mrs. Marcoux (parents) install in their campsite the first mobile-homes in the history of the Argelesian campsites. They will be 2-3 campsites to do the same this year 76. Like all forerunners, their initiative was met with skepticism from other professionals. The following year other establishments will do the same... It was also at this time that Bernadette and Max took their first steps in the management of the campsite.


On the eve of the 80s, it was the beginning of a transformation for the campsite. Canvas tents are giving way to mobile homes, and the services offered to customers are more and more numerous and cover fields as varied as commerce, entertainment and leisure. The open-air hotel industry is gradually being born... and "l’etoile d’or " follows this march forward:


90s/2000s: "l’etoile d’or  in the firmament of equipment and services"

 Outdoor hotels are now a reality. The campsite becomes a real "turnkey" holiday village. Like the majority of-caravans on the Roussillon coast, "L'Etoile d'Or" multiplies its equipment and services:


1992: creation of a second sanitary block, 1996: creation of a laundromat, a place for the night guard and extension of one of the toilet blocks, 1998: construction of a new bar/ restaurant with terrace as well as a new minimarket, 2001: creation of a new reception, 2003: creation of a new aqua-ludic complex and a new playground for children, 2004: creation of a multi-sports space (volleyball court, basketball, football,...), 2005: expansion and renovation of a toilet block including a nursery and children's area, 2006: creation of an animation centre by the swimming pool, a children's club and a new children's playground, 2007: redevelopment of a toilet block with water production by solar collectors, creation of a fitness room  and a solarium, 2014: creation of a covered and heated swimmingpool , 2018: complete redevelopment and extension of a toilet block (part is heated) as well as the laundromat, 2019: creation of a draining station for motorhome, expansion of the children's playground and the creation of a mini citystadium for children.
