Review: Finca Pura Clothing Optional Guest Rooms near Alicante, Spain

If there’s one concept of naturism which we didn’t really find in Europe (until today) it’s clothing optional. It’s a difficult subject altogether, especially seen from a global point of view. In the Americas, “clothing optional” is used to point out nudist resorts and clothing is most often not really an option. In Europe on the other hand, clothing appeared to be an option at most naturist places. At least in some parts or at certain times. In Alicante we…

How Voyeurism and Exhibitionism fit into Nudism. Or Not.

How Voyeurism and Exhibitionism fit into Nudism. Or Not.

The other day we came upon a year old blog post by Dan Carlson, a.k.a. the Meandering Naturist, about naturism and exhibitionism. Since Dan’s blog posts are often thought provoking, we can rarely resist to share our own thoughts on the subject in a comment. One which often competes in size with the actual post. It wasn’t any different with this one about naturism and exhibitionism, but then we figured that we could as well publish our ideas here. On…

Review: Lavinia Naturist Resort near Alicante, Spain

Review: Lavinia Naturist Resort near Alicante, Spain

Naturism in Spain has known its ups and downs over the years. Quite honestly, we had our doubts when we were planning this Big Nude European Trip. Which region should we pick? Which type of accommodation should we aim for? Should we go to Spain at all? The news that a new naturist place, Lavinia Naturist Resort, would soon be opening in the Alicante area drew us over the line. Their first photos looked very promising and we just had…

Our Nude French Road Trip Part 2: The South-East

Our Nude French Road Trip Part 2: The South-East

Oh France, you naturist paradise! It almost feels like we should start a separate blog, just about naturism in France alone. Even then we would probably not be able to explore everything the country has to offer for the naked traveler. During this summer we decided to travel through the southern regions of France and search for the best naturist vacation destinations. Because we found so many places to talk about, we decided to split our experiences in two blog…

Review: Domaine de la Quiquier in Gard, France

The days when naturists didn’t do much else than camping in the woods are long gone. During the last decades more and more people became interested in nude traveling. Sharing the naturist values of respect for each other, the joy of non-sexual nudity and the love for nature. But not necessarily very interested in sleeping in a tent. Whenever there’s a certain interest, there’s someone who will take care of the new gap in the market.   Naturist campings expand…

Why French Families go Massively for Naturism

Why French Families go Massively for Naturism

Ever since the beginning of naturism, France has been the number one country in the world where people like to drop their clothes. Today it’s not different. Nowhere else can you find such a huge amount of naturist places like in France. For many years, a common misunderstanding was that all the French just loved spending their time in the nude. They did not. Even though their country provided so many facilities for naturists, the large majority of the naturists…

Review: Camping Naturiste Verdon Provence in Haute Provence, France

A large part of our job as naturist travel bloggers is researching, often much more than the average naked traveler. One of the advantages of this is that now and then we stumble upon some of the most magnificent spots. Wonderful nude beaches away from the crowds. Or well hidden pearls of naturist campings which suddenly appear on our radar. Like naturist camping Verdon Provence for example. Tucked away in the Gorges du Verdon, one of southern France’s most wonderful…

Review: Chambres d’hôtes Naturiste: La Fenouillère in Var, France

Every summer roughly 2 million naturists find their way to France for a nude vacation. 2 Million! That’s a lot of people. That’s the population of Slovenia. They’re not all Slovenians though. Naturists from all over the world put France on their nude itinerary. Interestingly, the variety of naturist accommodations in France is not what one would expect. The large majority of places are campings and we’ve met plenty of naturists who didn’t have a clue that there are any…

Our Nude French Road Trip Part 1: The South-West

We are often asked about our favourite naturist destinations. Which place do we like the most for our nude vacations? It’s a question to which we honestly can’t give a solid answer. All places are so different and provide such a diversity in naturist experiences. Often we prefer to bend the question a little bit and talk about the country which definitely has the most options for naturists: France.   We had explored some of the naturist options in France…

Review: Domaine Naturiste L’Eglantière in Hautes-Pyrénées, France

The term “family naturist camping” can be interpreted in several different ways. Sometimes it’s meant that the camping management does a lot for visiting families. Other times it’s about the owners, who are running the camping with the whole family. And we’ve even seen cases where the whole staff just considers each other as a family and thus calls themselves a family naturist camping.   On some rare occasions though, we find a place where all three meanings come together….
