We accept your pets

In the heart of nature, camping for all inevitably includes our 4-legged friends (dogs, cats, small pets, NAC (rabbits, hamster…), etc.).

Our campsite is close to both the beaches and forests of the island, so they’ll be able to enjoy their vacation to the full, and we’ll be happy to help you find the best services to meet your needs and those of your friends!
