La Plage Des Templiers in Ardèche, France: Review

Review: La Plage Des Templiers in Ardèche, France

There are more than 200 naturist campsites in France and every single one of them is unique. They all have their own atmosphere, their own nature, their own facilities and activities. Yet, when we walked through yet another row of pitches and past yet another jeu de boule court on our way to yet another swimming pool, we couldn’t stop thinking that we’d seen this many times before.   Have we been travelling too much … Read more

Review: Naturist Campsite Devèze in Gers

Review: Naturist Campsite Devèze in Gers

France is the world’s most visited country. Every year, millions of tourists head over to soak up the culture, drink the wine, explore nature, and visit the many naturist resorts. Although France is quite a large country, it’s interesting to see that most of these tourists tend to flock to the same regions. Even if you’ve never been to France, you may have heard of Dordogne, Provence, Côte d’Azur, and obviously Paris.   But France … Read more

Review: Naturist campsite Les Fourneaux in Auvergne, France

We are regularly asked whether we never get bored of travelling in France. This is indeed the 4th summer in a row that we’re in this country and once again, we’ll be staying for several months. But getting bored is not something we’re afraid of. This country has so much to offer to both our naturist side and our traveller side. There are still many villages that we haven’t seen yet, wines we haven’t tasted … Read more

Review: Club du Soleil de Troyes in Aube, France

Review: Club du Soleil de Troyes in Aube, France

Several years ago, somewhere along the road, a very nice French couple had recommended the Club du Soleil de Troyes to us. This happened during happy hour at a naturist campsite, a situation in which recommendations tend to get forgotten as quickly as they are received. The thing was, they mentioned access to a natural river, and natural water is something we both enjoy much more than any given swimming pool. So the tip got … Read more

12 Excellent European Naturist Resorts with a Nude Beach

What does your preferred naturist destination look like? Which feature does it need to have for you to consider visiting the place?   We’re not just asking you this, it’s a question we’ve been asking many naturists during our travels. The number one answer by far is that there has to be nature. The majority of the naturists we meet prefer greenery over concrete. Which didn’t exactly come as a surprise. Within nature, the choices … Read more

Can you really get naked on every beach in Spain?

Can you really get naked on every beach in Spain?

If you’re following the naturist news on social media, it was hard not to notice the interesting news update that came from Spain. The City Council of Cadiz in Andalucia announced that from now on, all the local beaches would be naturist friendly. This might have come as a surprise to some of you because Spain happens to be that one country in which it’s known that it’s okay to be naked on all beaches. … Read more

Naturism on Lanzarote and Fuerteventura

Naturism on Lanzarote and Fuerteventura

We had never really considered the Canary Islands as a decent naturist destination. Especially because, if you look at the map of naturist resorts, there don’t seem to be all that many. If a region that has decent naturist weather pretty much year-round does not have an abundance of naturist opportunities, there’s probably something wrong. This was our easy conclusion. As many times before, our simple logic would prove to be quite unreliable. Something we … Read more

Review: Charco del Palo in Lanzarote, Spain

Review: Charco del Palo in Lanzarote, Spain

The term “naturist village” is being used quite loosely and most often it refers to a resort rather than to an actual village. It’s not a patented term and there are no prerequisites to meet. If you want to call your back garden a naturist village, you are free to do so. But there are few places that are actual villages where one can just be nude. The ones that do exist are often fenced-off … Read more
