It is now possible to find “5 star” campsites in France. Since the 1st of July 2010, the Ministry of Tourism in France has introduced a new ‘outdoor-hoteling’ grading scale. This scale includes a list of 204 criteria, compared the previous 103. Esterel Caravaning was the first campsite on the French Riviera to receive the distinction of being a”5-star” camp site.
Big news : quality criteria are now taken into account (presence of a swimming pool, a centre of well-being, cleanliness, the use of foreign languages by staff …). This new classification focuses on three major areas: equipment and facilities, client services, accessibility and sustainability.
The validation of this 5-star ranking for campsites in France is obtained from the regional Prefecture and is valid for five years.
Esterel Caravaning was the first campsite in the Var region to receive this award which recognizes the work of the whole team. A logical evolution that rewards our professionalism and wonderful amenities and our 35 years of service.
