The Different Types of Naturist Accommodations

For a long time, naturism has invariably been connected to camping. It made perfect sense within the philosophy. Naturists wanted to spend most of their time outside, absorbing the sunshine and being as close as possible to nature. Personally, we love camping. For exactly those reasons.

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).
