1) Who is behind Campings.Luxury?
The website Campings.Luxury is edited by the company Vacances Vues du Ciel, a wholly owned subsidiary of Interaview Production.
Vacances Vues du Ciel is a young start-up specialized in the e-tourism sector. Launched in 2007, its first website, www.vacancesvuesduciel.fr, has quickly become the number 1 holiday comparison site in France with an audience of more than 1 million visitors per year. Its purpose is to offer Internet users a powerful and efficient tool to simplify the search for holiday tourist accommodations, whether it's for a camping, a hotel, a rental or a holiday village.
Vacances Vues du Ciel is actually a subsidiary of Interaview Production.
Interaview Production is one of the leading French actors in the e-tourism and digital communication field. Launched in 2001, this interactive agency is specialized in the field of visual communication destined to key tourism industry players. As such, Interaview Production collaborates with many French campsites, including through the realization of promotional video clips, websites, virtual tours, and photographic support.
2) How was the idea of Campings.Luxury born?
With more than 8,000 campsites and nearly one million pitches on its territory, France represents more than one-third of the outdoor camping and caravanning capacity of Europe and the second most important in the world behind the United States.
First form of tourist accommodation in France, the campsite industry almost collapsed towards the end of the 90's, as it hadn't been able to anticipate the needs of tourists for more comfort and services.
At the beginning of the 2000s, the camping industry realised that it is imperative to invest to counter competition from holiday villages and other holiday clubs. As from then, in many outdoor establishments appear modern and comfortable mobile homes, unusual accommodations, water parks, well-being and relaxation areas, etc...
Witness and key player of this strategy to move upmarket, Interaview Production hasn't stopped since its creation to accompany the most beautiful campsites in France in their digital communication strategies. Over these years of collaboration, the company has constituted a reservoir of digital content, unique in its kind, in the field of luxury camping. Taking advantage of the know-how of Vacances Vues du Ciel in highlighting tourist accommodations on the Internet, Interaview Production today wishes to share with as many as possible this content, that's where the idea of Campings.Luxury comes from...
3) What are the selection criteria of Campings.Luxury?
To be part of the selection of Campings.Luxury, it is highly recommended that the campsite has at least 4 stars. Two other important criteria are then considered to select the best campsites; their situation and the available facilities.
By situation, we mean geographical location but also environmental scenery. Therefore, we study carefully the presence of nearby tourist sites, the immediate environment of the establishment, for example near a lake or by the sea, and its landscaped lay-out.
With regard to the facilities, we select priorly campsites with a water park, composed of at least two large pools and a paddling pool. The fact that a part of the water park is heated and/ or covered and/ or features water slides/ toboggans is obviously an important asset.
The presence of a wellness centre, a balneotherapy or a spa on the campsite is also a very important criterion for Campings.Luxury.
Finally, the fact that establishments boast high-end mobile homes, unusual accommodation or even better a VIP Premium area will obviously work in their favour.
This list is non exhaustive and each campsite is studied on a case by case basis, so that the selection process is as objective as possible.
