Review: Domaine Laborde in Monflaquin, France

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, 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.   We…

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. A major landmark in the southern tip of this region is Biarritz, once a hotspot for the rich and famous in the early 20th century and now mostly known for its magnificent surf. More north of Biarritz is the huge regional park Landes de Gascogne with a mix of wetlands and pine…

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,…

Review: Euronat in Grayan-l’Hopital, France

Review: Euronat in Grayan-l’Hopital, France

When people talk about going to the south of France, immediately the Mediterranean coast pops into mind. The mild weather, the long beaches where bikini tops have always been a rarity, places like Nice, Cannes and Saint Tropez where half of Hollywood has a boat in the harbour and of course the world famous naturist destination Cap d’Agde. We often forget that the south of France has another coast, the Atlantic one, which is (at least to us) even more…

24 Hours naked in Paris

24 Hours naked in Paris

We are often surprised about how many textiles still think that naturism is only practiced in our own “naturist camps”, or worse… (oh, the horror) in our “colonies”. Come on! This is the 21st century! The times when we spent all our pastime being naked around a lake somewhere far far away in the woods is long gone. Now that naturism starts to attract more and more young people again, the options have to be larger. Although we like an…

O’Naturel: The first naked restaurant in Paris

O’Naturel: The first naked restaurant in Paris

During our last days in Canada, the clear blue sky started to look more like a pattern of fifty shades of grey (pun intended). When eventually there were more days when we preferred a good jacket over our naked skin, we knew it was time to go. The Canadians tried to convince us that an Indian summer, when temperatures would rise again, would definitely be coming, our minds were already made up. We had something else to look forward to,…

Getting Naked in Ontario and Quebec

Getting Naked in Ontario and Quebec

We had three things we wanted to find during our time in Canada: Bears, moose and places to get naked. At least we found one of them. Many Canadians we had met during our travels told stories that started with “that one time I rode my bicycle into a black bear…” or “after I chased a moose away from our garbage this morning…”. They gave us the impression that Canada was flooded with large impressive wildlife. We wanted to experience…

Review: La Pommerie near Montreal, Canada

Review: La Pommerie near Montreal, Canada

Sometimes we use the term “naturist resort” or “naturist campground” or “naturist place” or “naturist spot”. We prefer not to use “naturist colony” because we feel that it has a bit of a negative undertone. And sometimes we even use “naturist domain”, a pretty nice term if you ask us but after this blog post we will unfortunately have to stop using that one as well. We believe that we have just reached the maximum when it comes to domains….

Review: Centre Naturiste Oasis near Montreal, Canada

Review: Centre Naturiste Oasis near Montreal, Canada

Just like Belgium, Canada has also a French speaking part: Quebec. It had been our plan from the beginning to try to divide our time between Ontario and Quebec, the two Canadian states with the most opportunities for naturists and time had come for us to move on and try to remember our best French. Something that would prove to be not as easy as we initially had thought. All naturist resorts in the state seemed to be more or…

Review: Sunward near Ottawa, Canada

Review: Sunward near Ottawa, Canada

Toronto had proven to be the perfect starting point for the Canadian lap of our big journey. Not only did we have the chance to experience our first nude cruise and did we soon after visit Canada’s best known naturist resort Bare Oaks, we also already found out what previous visitors to the country meant with the “Canadian friendliness”. And also what the apologetic attitude really stands for. See, the Canadians apologise for literally everything, also things that are more…
