Esterel Caravaning, First 5-Star Campsite on the French Riviera

In France, camping holidays are now available in 5-star luxury. And among the winners, Esterel Caravaning was the first campsite on the French Riviera to receive the coveted “5-star” rating.
Since July 1, 2010, the Ministry of Tourism has introduced a new classification grid for outdoor accommodation in France. This grid includes 204 criteria, compared to the previous 103. New for 2022: qualitative criteria are now taken into account (presence of a swimming pool, a wellness area, cleanliness, practice of foreign languages by the staff, etc.). This new ranking focuses on three main areas: equipment and facilities, customer services, accessibility and sustainable development.

Esterel Caravaning was thus the first luxury campsite on the French Riviera to receive this distinction in 2011. This was the result of 35 years of hard work by our entire team. It also represents a logical development for our establishment, which has, for many years, been tailored to meet the needs and luxury services that our guests demand.

Since then, we have been improving and transforming our campsite to retain our 5-star status & to continue to satisfy our customers. Reclassified as a 5-star campsite for the second time in 2016, the 2021/2022 reclassification is in progress.

Esterel Caravaning was also voted Best campsite in Europe by Germany & the Netherlands! For the 6th consecutive year, Esterel Caravaning ranks among the best campsites in Europe & holds the prestigious “ADAC Superplatz” and “TOP Camping” awards.

As a reminder, each year, qualified inspectors from ADAC and ANWB visit more than 2,000 campsites across 37 countries, out of 35,000 European campsites. More than 300 criteria are checked in about ten areas: the number and quality of sanitary facilities, equipment, maintenance and design of shops and restaurants, leisure facilities, aquatic areas, etc.

These evaluation criteria are regularly reviewed and adapted to current trends in the outdoor hospitality industry.

Esterel Caravaning is proud to have been bestowed this distinctive honour.
