Review: Le Colombier in Sainte Hermine, France

Naturist camping Le Colombier was already the last destination on our itineraryโ€ฆ Time flies when you’re having fun and especially when you’re on a nakation through this wonderful area in western France.

Review: Creuse Nature in Boussac, France

The natural beauty of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region never ceased to surprise us. While we were driving towards our next destination, naturist camping Creuse Nature in what might well be called the heart of France we found ourselves in the tranquility of a rural landscape. The strong hills in western Aquitaine made place for fields where cows seemed to outnumber people by far. A forgotten piece of France where most of the inhabitants still live of their natural resources.   To…

Naturist Villages

Naturist Villages

It doesn’t matter whether we’re in a naturist resort in Thailand, at a gathering in Mexico or camping next to a lake in Canada. Whenever we start telling others about our journey to naturist places around the world there’s often someone who will ask whether we’ve been to Cap d’Agde. For many naturists, “Cap” has become a mythical place which they’ve put high on their bucket list to visit at least once in their lives. Because hey, it’s a real…

Review: Domaine Laborde in Monflaquin, France

Our trip through the French Aquitaine region was already half way and we figured that it was time to leave the coast behind. We had visited several wonderful naturist beach campings and our next destination, naturist camping Domaine Laborde, would take us towards another very famous tourist destination: The Dordogne. Domaine Laborde is part of the Natustar group, a collaboration of six naturist campings in France with the purpose of promoting their domains and naturism in the region in general….

The Naturist Talks: Raven from Canada

The Naturist Talks: Raven from Canada

One of the main reasons why we started this project is to show the world that naturists are not some strange dark commune but that actually everyone could be one… Or could enjoy being one if they took the first step.   Our main example of “everyone” is of course ourselves, we write posts about naturism in general but also about our own experiences. But some of you might be thinking “Yes sure, those two are probably just the strange…

Review: Arnaoutchot in Vieille-Saint-Girons, France

For the next stop on our little “Tour de France” we drove further south towards a department called Landes, another popular tourist destination at the Bay of Biscay. We were on our way towards Vielle-Saint-Girons in the south-west corner of the regional park. The colorful ride could have been reason enough to visit the area but of course we came here to visit naturist camping Arnaoutchot (or shortly: Arna). We had been told that Arna would be the perfect mix…

Why do teenagers turn away from nudism and is that such a big deal?

Why do teenagers turn away from nudism and is that such a big deal?

Toddlers are born naturists and not only literally (although they’re obviously delivered naked). In fact they might well be the most genuine kind of naturist there is, they don’t even question their nudity. Most of them will question clothes though and if they see an opportunity to get rid of them they’ll often take advantage of that. Our memory doesn’t go that far back, but we would like to remember the day when being nude was not an option anymore….

Review: CHM Monta in Vendays-Montalivet, France

Review: CHM Monta in Vendays-Montalivet, France

The origin of naturism has been subject to a lot of debate. Many historians who studied the lifestyle will point out a period in early 20th century when the German Dr. Heinrich Scham wrote the book Nacktkultur. Some however say it started already during the industrial revolution when a Belgian guy first used the term “naturism”. And others will tell you that it was way earlier, during the Roman times, when naked sports were more common than clothed ones. Honestly,…
