2011’ Investments



New features


New features of 2011

New sanitation

On taking over the Chênes Blancs campsite in 2009, we had the immediate task of renovating the toilet facilities, which we considered to be run down and somewhat outdated. The customer satsifaction survey in 2010 also revealed the necessity for this so that all our facilities would meet the standards of service we wished to deliver.

During 2010, we worked with the NSL firm of architects (39 Boulevard Longchamp 13001 Marseille) and with the Eco Sud Be Thermique company (07200 Aubenas) to design modern toilet blocks which would:

  • offer good conditions for customers at peak times (July-August) ;
  • provide enough hot water ;
  • ensure sufficient water pressure for all the campsite’s needs ;
  • heat the shower/bathroom areas during off-season periods ;
  • facilitate efficient and frequent cleaning and maintenance.

From now on, we will be working on this ! The plans have been ready since the autumn, Vaucluse companies have been selected and the work has begun... It is a huge investment for the campsite and it will be our pleasure to be able to offer you this level of service in April 2011.

Expansion of the pool-side area

As you know, the pool has been completely renovated for the 2011 season, as well as the pool-side area.

This year, to provide our visitors with more space, we decided to enlarge this pool-side area by opening up access to the grounds behind the restaurant. A more peaceful spot, there is no doubt that this area will quickly become somewhere where visitors gather to be the first to spread their towels on the deckchairs...

The transformation of an old caravan site into a multi-sport complex

Our longest standing visitors will have been familiar from the beginning with a large area next to the campsite where certain visiotrs kept their caravans, and which came to be known as our “caravan park”. This area was not very welcoming and above all, did not benefit our campers in any way.

We have finally dropped this caravan parking option and removed all the caravans from this site. In fact, the campsite wishes to offer its visitors a multi-sport facility during the 2011 season to fulfil the manager’s highest aspirations ! A former top level tennis player, married to a sports instructor, Frédéric has sought to create 3 sport & leisure areas :

  • a beach soccer pitch, Eric Cantona fans will enjoy that...
  • a beach-volley ball ground for those who love diving into the sand...
  • a beach-tennis court (a new activity where campers can try and take on Frédéric...).

The addition of new green spaces

Most of the major work is behind us; we also wanted to create new fragrant groves in 2011, full of plants from the region. Lovers of lavender will surely be enchanted, but also any visitor who wants to see even more colour on their daily walks along the footpaths of Chênes Blancs.
