The "Camping de la Baie" was created in 1954 by Pierre Bernard. The 2019 season will be the 65th year for this family business, managed by the same family since its creation.
The layout of the campsite, the creation of the pitches and infrastructures was put in place by the son of Pierre and Marcelle, Christian and his wife Solange since 1976.
In 2015, one of Christian and Solange’s daughters, Solen and her husband, Gildas, make the leap and leave their professions in finance, and their lives in Luxembourg, to embark on the adventure.
Solen deals with both the management of the campsite (marketing, promotion, booking management) and customer reception.
As for Gildas, he is also responsible for the management of the campsite (accounting, investments, technical part, swimming pool) but also the management of the grocery store and the bakery.
