The book at Camping Bel Air in Pornichet
This year, the campsite Bel air situated next to the bay of La Baule, in Pornichet, south Brittany has got 80 years. To celebrate this event, the campsite was totally lifted, and a book has been written about its long history. It happens that the writer is one of our mobile home owners
We have one of the oldest campsite in France. It opened in 1936, the same year that the law of payed vacations was promulgated. At the beginning, the campsite was quite basic: a plot with some toilets.
Now, you can find pitches for tents, caravans, motor-homes, and 200 mobile homes. There are two swimming-pools, one inside and the other outside but both are heated, a restaurant, a kids club, a multi-sport area, a sauna, a hairdresser and a masseuse. We do the maximum to make you happy, and enjoy your holiday. Here the dream becomes reality. You’ll never forget our smile and kindness, we coddle and entertain you from the morning to the evening. The team prepares every day programs of entertainment and wellness.
But all that is what happens now, the life in the campsite was quite different before. It is now up to you to read the book to know all about what happened during these years, including World War 2, it will help you to notice the bunkers that are still there. You’ll learn that the same family runs it since the beginning. But let’s don’t reveal more about it, we sell it at the reception for 8 euros. With a little luck, you will meet the author.
