A stylish and cosy campsite on the heights of Nice
Since coming into the hands of new owners in 2012, the Les Cent Chênes campsite has continuously moved upmarket. In 2017, it had just obtained a fourth star and now does not intend to simply stop there! Indeed, in the contrary since the end game is to offer holidaymakers an ever more stylish, ever more delightful and, of course, ever more snug on the famous French Riviera.

In the Alpes-Maritimes department, it is the sole and unique open-air hotel to thus offer its holidaymakers top-of-the-range services.
Saint-Jeannet, the commune in which this campsite is set up, is a village perched at the foot of an 800-metre cliff, the Baou de Saint-Jeannet. At the summit of the latter, hikers and climbers can take advantage of an incredible panoramic view of the surroundings, from the La Cagne valley to the Alpine summits of Le Mercantour to indeed the Nice hills. This view extends as far as Antibes, the Îles du Lérins and the Massif de l’Esterel (a mountain range)!
An amazing hundred-year-old oak grove just a stone's throw from the Côte d’Azur
The Les Cent Chênes campsite nestles at the heart of a superb hundred-year-old oak grove lacking neither neither charm or calm! Although the seaside, both hyper-active and ultra-festive, is only a quarter of an hour by road, here, tranquillity is certain, as well as all holidaymakers' privacy. A campsite with a human dimension, this luxury campsite in the Alpes-Maritimes indeed only has a small number of around pitches intended to accommodate campers and their tent, caravan or camper.
There are 24 other pitches which are now occupied by holiday hire accommodation. On-site, holidaymakers therefore have the choice between mobile homes, chalets the terraces of which are totally surrounded by vegetation, having nothing by way of extra comfort or privacy, as well as the charming wooden cabins on stilts
Ideal for appealing to lovers of glamping holidays, these cabins are split up into a Robinson range and a Luxe (Luxury) range. As its name indicates, the Luxe range offers superior comfort to its occupants as well as an even warmer atmosphere!
