A car (or rental car) is a good way to travel around France and useful if you want to visit slightly remote places. The roads in France are of good quality. On the highways it is regularly indicated where the nearest petrol stations / restaurant, picnic areas are. Keep in mind that you have to pay toll on the French motorways. You can pay by credit card or cash at the toll gates.

You also need to be in possession of International Insurance Certificates or the green card if you are going with your own car. In France it is mandatory to have an alcohol tester in the car.

A Dutch driving license is sufficient, so an international driving license is not necessary.

For years, a large group of young people has been going to naturist campsites in France every summer holiday, these are the Internature youth holidays sponsored by NFN Open & Bloot. A new campsite is selected every three years. Since 2018, Le Colombier has been chosen as a campsite for three years, located in the Vendée, in France. This summer vacation is largely organized by the young people themselves. Because of the Corona, the youngsters stay 1 year longer at Le Colombier. It is a wonderful site, so it is absolutely no problem.

The group consists of young people between 18 and 27 years old. Many have known each other for years, for example from the weekends in the Netherlands, but there are also enough people who come along for the first time every year. In recent years, more than 60 young people have gone on holiday to France!

What does such an Inter youth holiday look like?
For only € 460, you can stay in sunny France for two weeks. In 2021 from July 24 to August 9. This includes the outward and return journey to and from Jaarbeursplein in Utrecht. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are also included in the price. If you are not an NFN member, but you want to join us as a guest, you pay € 55 extra (or you become a member of NFN for free). If you only want to come for a few days, you can, you pay € 35.00 per day.

During the bus trip there is plenty of time to get to know part of the group. Once arrived at the campsite, there is often a welcome chat from the campsite owners, after which the young people have time to set up the tents.

During the holidays there are usually two fixed day activities for the whole group, of which a visit to a city in the area is often one of them. There are also theme parties, the themes of which are partly announced before the holidays. In addition, there is often a gala.

There is a bar in the party tent, where water, soft drinks and drinks are always available for a small price.

In addition to the day activities, there are also optional activities. Examples of recent years are a visit to an old cave, a town or castle, bowling, bubble football, a festival in the area and much more!

Transport
Departure (23 July 2021) and arrival (8 August 2021) in Utrecht with a coach bus. It is of course always possible to go to Le Colombier with your own transport.
