46 Things We've Learned at Naturist Campings in France

46 Things We’ve Learned at Naturist Campings in France

As you may remember, we have spent the last three months on our Epic nude road trip through France. We had been to naturist campings in France before, but then we mostly stayed in rental accommodations. This year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to get back to basic and bring our own tent and our own gear.   It definitely was epic. We discovered so many great naturist campgrounds in France, we … Read more

Naturist camping in the French Limousin Region

Naturist camping in the French Limousin Region

When it comes to tourism, the French Limousin region sometimes lays a bit in the shadow of its southern neighbor Dordogne or the western Atlantic coastline. You’ll rarely find the region in lists of top tourist destinations in France, that much is sure. A shame, if you ask us. Spectacular beauty may not be waiting for you behind every corner, as is the case in the Alps, Provence, or Dordogne. But if you take the … Read more

Review: Domaine du Coq Rouge in Corrèze, France

Review: Domaine du Coq Rouge in Corrèze, France

While traveling through France, we often wondered how all those naturist places managed to be so different from each other. Let’s be honest, without wanting to sound disrespectful, a campground is a campground. It’s a large space divided into many small spaces where you can put your tent, camper, or caravan. Of course, there’s a difference in facilities. Some have a larger pool than others, more sports options, more food on the menu, or cleaner … Read more

Naturist camping in the French Dordogne Region

Naturist camping in the French Dordogne Region

Albeit a kind of lazy corner of southern France, Dordogne is one of the main vacation destinations in the country. It doesn’t take long to understand why. The flowing landscape dotted with ancient chateaux and bastides, rolling limestone hills and endless forests, picturesque towns with cozy bars and restaurants, and excellent cuisine. It’s like wandering into a daydream.   The splendid nature of Dordogne is definitely something that you want to experience. And the best … Read more

The Game of Naturists: Petanque

Petanque: The Game of Naturists

We have joked a lot about petanque over the years, in our blog posts, and in real life. Through naturist history, the balls have become an essential part of being a naturist (pun intended). Every naturist resort we ever visited had at least one petanque court. Often several more. Petanque tournaments are always on the naturist calendar. It’s what naturists like to do, throw a couple of big balls towards a small ball.   We’ve … Read more

Le Couderc in Dordogne, France: Review

Review: Le Couderc in Dordogne, France

Many naturist campings are run as family businesses. We’ve heard the story several times before. A couple gets tired of their everyday jobs and starts dreaming about their own tropical paradise. Someplace where they can spend their days in the nude and share the experience with thousands of other naturists. The dream becomes reality. They sell their belongings, make a deal with the bank, buy a property, load their kids in the back of the … Read more

Naturist Camping in the French Provence

Naturist Camping in the French Provence

The Provence-Alpes-Côte province in the south of France is not just one of the most visited spots of the country for its amazing nature, food, and drinks. We found out that it’s also an excellent place for naturist vacations. So much that we had to split our overview into two parts. Last week you could read about how we got naked in the French Alps, the eastern part of the region. This week we’re slowly … Read more

Naturist camping in the French Alpes

Naturist Camping in the French Alps

One of the things that we were really looking forward to on our Big Nude Tour de France was spending some time in the Provence region. It’s often said that this part of France contains everything that the country has to offer. Excellent landscapes, delicious food, top-class rosé wines, and great weather. But that’s not what attracted us. The region is also home to quite a large number of naturist campings. And if there’s one … Read more

Review: Le Petit Arlane in Provence, France

Review: Le Petit Arlane in Provence, France

It’s often said that the French Provence region contains some of the best of the whole country. The region is a summary of France, so to say. Except for the lousy weather from the north. During the last weeks, we had been traveling through the foot of the Alps mountains, hiking through woods, and bathing in freezing rivers. Moving towards the west of the region, the endless pine forests and rock formations started making space … Read more

FKK in Corsica: A Naturist Paradise on a French Island

FKK in Corsica: A Naturist Paradise on a French Island

Corsica is an island of contradictions. It’s a part of France, but it’s closer to Italy. Signs are often in both languages and also the cuisine is some sort of mix. The high mountain range and the many natural parks make Corsica an excellent destination for nature and adventure lovers. The surrounding coastline with endless white beaches then again makes the island very attractive for beach lovers.   The people in Corsica are known for … Read more
