4 star campsite Les Places Dorées Saint Jean de Monts (Vendée / 85)



The campsite from yesterday to today

For thousands of years, camping has always been a real tourist activity for millions of people. It consists of staying in the same place under a tent, a caravan, or in a motorhome.

In France, it is one of the most popular tourist activities. But many are unaware that there is a whole history dating back millennia around the campsite. We invite you to discover it briefly.

Camping before our era

Camping is what is called one of the oldest activities in the world. Indeed, studies have shown that this tourism activity existed for 1000 BC.

There are two ways to do this. First, the travellers were camping with canvases for their stopovers. Second, Roman soldiers in antiquity established their bases with tents on land called campuses. So there is a military connotation in the history of camping.

France and England at the heart of camping history

History tells us that in the11th century, the kings Francis I and Henry VIII met under a gigantic camp that they raised, an expression of their power.

Similarly, the invasion of England by William the Conqueror was a trigger for the birth of the term camping, forged from the verb “camping”. This is the beginning of the modernization of the campsite.

A modernized activity like the Camping Les Places Dorées in Saint-Jean-de-Monts

Nowadays, camping is more practiced for its tourist side and its contact with nature than anything else since the end of the19th century.

The word is now very present and the practice is chosen by millions of people. This explains the success of structures such as the Camping Les Places Dorées in Saint-Jean-de-Monts. This is one of the best campsites in France.
