Vacation village - a very fashionable approach

  For some time, vacation villages have been considered an old-fashioned practice. On the contrary, they are well in vogue and offer different possibilities for holidaymakers to experience unforgettable moments. It is indeed an approach to vacations based on discovery, authenticity and conviviality. All the elements are gathered to guarantee the success of your stay with friends or family. It's also a great opportunity to make new connections. Upon your arrival, professional teams welcome you. They are ready to help you discover the region.  That's not all, in a tourist village, comfortable accommodation solutions are offered so you can get together with your family. There are also common areas and sports facilities to entertain and promote the meeting of vacationers. Various activities are also offered to satisfy children, young people and parents. Young and old alike will be able to forge beautiful friendships during their vacation. In addition, there is also a quality restaurant on site. The majority highlights the local gastronomy and organizes fun activities to promote exchanges and meetings.  Other than the activities and animations proposed, most of the vacation villages are located in places close to the sea or the mountains. In these quiet places, you can relax and unwind, away from the hassles of everyday life. If you want to get to know the city and the region, you are free to go on day trips. You can take the opportunity to go for a walk by the sea, visit historical monuments or simply relax far away, in an exotic place of your choice.   

Slow camping - an option to promote the development of ecotourism

  Slow camping is one of the big trends in the outdoor hospitality industry. This new form of vacation village is in line with the philosophy of slow tourism. The idea is to choose the closest destination to go on vacation. During the stay, exchanges with the local population (craftsmen, restaurant owners, farmers...) are encouraged. Unlike other vacation villages, the village emphasizes soft activities such as cycling, kayaking and walking. All this in order to promote the local economy as well as to protect the environment. If you choose this type of camping for your next vacation, take the opportunity to do a digital detox and recharge your batteries. Contrary to your daily rhythmic and digitalized life, you will wake up in the morning in the heart of nature listening to the birds singing. If you like swimming, you will enjoy the invigorating freshness of the river or the sea located near the campsite. When the evening arrives, the camping team will offer you an aperitif on the terrace of your chalet to the sound of the cicadas. To live in the moment and enjoy a total change of scenery, replace your screens and connected devices with a book. Depending on your needs, some villages offer other activities such as meditation, hiking, horseback riding, spa treatments, or yoga. If you are addicted to any of these activities, your stay would only be a success.  As mentioned above, this type of camping is related to slow tourism. The goal is not to go far away, but to make short hops from town to town. If you are interested, allow yourself time to discover the particularity of each city, leaving room for the unexpected. However, if you want to go abroad, choose the camping village which will allow you to concentrate on a particular place. It should be noted that since its appearance, this concept is increasingly interesting to the youngest and most urban vacationers.  

The campground that accommodates tents, caravans, mobile homes

  Campgrounds are lands developed to be operated by a good number of campers. They must meet the strict standards of the town planning code. The campsite is classified in number of stars which varies from 1 to 5. This classification depends on several parameters including the level of comfort of the facilities, the activities offered, the level of services, the quality of the infrastructure and services as well as the hygiene and safety standards. Other elements such as environmental responsibility and the convenience of adapting infrastructures for people with reduced mobility are also to be taken into account.  There are four categories of camping. The first one is the tourism camping which refers to the rental of plots of land to accommodate foreign tourists. They can stay there for a short or long period, depending on their needs. Then the leisure camping whose targets are the customers who stay there for more than one month. The third category is seasonal camping. It refers to the seasonal campsite, whose stay is longer than two months. The last one is the natural air camping in operation for up to six months.  As far as accommodation solutions are concerned, campgrounds offer two types including chalets and mobile homes. This is the case in the Le Bellevue campsite in La Tranche sur Mer. These leisure homes offer optimal comfort to campers. Careful decorations and many activities are offered to welcome and satisfy families from 4 to 8 people depending on the type of accommodation.
