A fabulous area made for you

A protected picturesque bay surrounded by wonderful countryside and suitable wind conditions: the best conditions for beginners to learn water sports safely. Our base lies away from the main traffic in the picturesque area of the naturist campsite La Chiappa – 15 minutes away from Porto Vecchio.
Important to know: We run our base independently from the campsite.
That is why external visitors and non-nudists are equally welcome. Our courses are not meant for nudists.
Call in on the way to us through the holiday village at the reception. There you can either leave an id-card or pay the daily fee – which will be refunded upon proof of participation in water sports (a stamp from us) when you leave the campsite. You may pass through the holiday village in clothes to reach us at the surf beach.
Showers and toilets are close to the water sports beach. You can shop in the local supermarket or enjoy a drink at the beach bar or in the restaurant Le Cerbicale.

Holiday Village La Chiappa: Free as a bird in the heart of a nature reserve

The family holiday village located off the beaten track on a peninsula south of Porto Vecchio among fragrant maquis: The 65 hectare area surrounded by fantastic sandy beaches and a rocky coastline. You can find shaded places everywhere to rest and recuperate, have fun and games.
This natural paradise for nudists offers 250 bungalows and 230 shady spots on the campsite. In the heart of the holiday village there are 2 pools (one heated and one with a paddling area) with a sun deck to lounge and relax if you do not want to go to the beach. Right by the sea: a restaurant and a bar. For shopping a supermarket is available.
Near our water centre the holiday residence offers a diving school for water sport fans.
Further activities on offer are among others aerobics, aqua aerobics, yoga and riding. Showers and toilets are also close to the water sports centre.
