Patrick MAZON, president of the Association of campsites in the southern Ardèche Valley:
"Our philosophy is to defend a certain idea of ‘human-size’ campsites'."
The big majority of our campsites are small structures; few have more than a 100 pitches. (WOTR: the 14 campsites of the association have between 33 and 177 pitches).
As a syndicate, by regrouping, we aim to share means and skills to assure our communication by mutual campaigns (brochures, tourism-fairs, etc.).
As a syndicate, these campsites have decided to put together their experience.
To join the Association in case a new campsite wishes to join us, it’s easy. It just needs to be sponsored by one of the members of the Association. The managers of the campsite assist to one of our meetings to present themselves. If their campsite corresponds to the philosophy of the Association, it will be accepted.
