"The idea is to ensure that people are not just here for a holiday but to learn something". Camping is a holiday choice, not an economic choice; you can have a 'socially responsible' holiday with your family and get in touch with nature. "Our objective is to raise our holidaymakers' awareness of observing and respecting biodiversity".

Since 2003, Les Saules campsite has been committed to an environmental protection and quality approach. My modernisation project included the purchase of tent cabins, positioned nearer to the so-called "natural" area of the campsite.

In addition, the campsite proposes tourist events such as birdwatching, thanks to an agreement with the French Bird Protection Society, and has a birding trail to observe the species that nest on the site.
