To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Notin caravan and motorhome brand, some sixty caravans and motorhomes from the 1930s to the 1980s were brought together in Azay-le-Rideau during the Whitsun weekend.

This gathering, organised by enthusiasts of retro camping and the Notin brand, should have taken place last year, but Covid wanted it otherwise. One year later, it was a great success and a nice tribute to the 100 years old brand (101 years old, after all!). On the banks of the Indre, a real timeless campsite was set up. It was not only possible to see beautiful Notin caravans from the last century, but also the vehicles associated with many old American cars that Notin caravan owners appreciated. These caravans, which never weighed less than a ton, had to be towed. In addition to the caravans and their cars, the pitches were decorated with vintage camping equipment. The oldest caravan at the rally, probably the oldest Notin caravan still in use, dated from 1938. Although caravans were in the majority at this event, a few motorhomes were also present. We offer you a short video review of this successful anniversary, with the presentation of the caravans of some of the enthusiasts present in Azay-le-Rideau.

We Love Camping

C'est parce que nous aimons le camping traditionnel que nous avons pensé à ce site. Parce que nous regrettons parfois que le mobile-home occupe désormais tant de place sur les campings, nous avons voulu mettre en avant les terrains où les tentes, les caravanes et les camping-cars restent majoritaire. Et offrir à tout ceux qui partagent notre amour de la vie en plein air, un site avec des idées de voyages, des conseils techniques et surtout un choix de campings où il fait bon venir poser sa caravane ou planter sa tente.
