1982 From shady meadowsto camping on the farm

The history of our campsite dates back to 1982, when my parents first opened the doors of Campagne Brun. Back then, life was simpler and closer to nature.

Every evening, my grandfather and his sheep would cross the campsite, lit by the campers’ kerosene lanterns. These stories still ring in the ears of some of our now grown-up customers.

Every summer, some of them return, drawn by the charm and nostalgia of these memories. La Campagne Brun continues to be a place where traditions are perpetuated and new stories are created, while remaining true to its heritage.

1995 From Camping to Farming
at the Restanques campsite

1995 was the year of major changes, as a wind of modernity began to blow over the Les Restanques campsite. Its transformation didn’t happen in a day or a year, but over decades. A colossal amount of work was carried out, much of it by my father and brother. We built 3 sanitary blocks, built numerous stone walls, hence the name “Les Restanques”, marked out the pitches with vine hedges, planted numerous trees, installed mobile homes for the residents, etc….

These major changes marked a turning point. These transformations have enhanced the camper experience, while preserving the essence and charm for which our campground is renowned.

Today, “Les Restanques” harmoniously combines modern comfort with the beauty of its natural surroundings, offering visitors a unique and unforgettable place to stay.
