Veritable “guest campgrounds,” the Les Castels sites have preserved the art of entertaining, as each owner is intent on offering you a familial and warm reception.

Green Awards

38_Camping_France_-_Castels_luxury_camping_in_FranceThe Green Key is an environmental seal of approval which has been awarded to Le Castel since 1998, run by la Fondation pour l’Education à l’Environnement [Foundation for Environmental Education]. It recognizes campsites, hotels and holiday rental cottages for their efforts to protect the environment, in the following areas: general environmental management, waste management, water management, energy management, environmental education and land development.

Some examples of action taken by the campsites to improve their green credentials:

  • Installation of heat pumps for heating the swimming pools
  • Installation of thermal solar panels to heat water for the bathroom blocks
  • Setting up light sensors for exterior lighting
  • Facilities for recycling, composting and compacting waste
  • Use of electric vehicles
  • Reusable carrier bags in the shops, instead of plastic bags…

So if the Euros are for you consider a trip with and a great place to camp when in France.
