Base Nautique de la Grande Motte"

VSF Holiday Center in La Grande Motte  


Region HERAULT / Languedoc Roussillon (Mediterranean Coast) - FRANCE

On the shores of the Mediterranean sea, located between Nimes and Montpellier is the beach resort of la Grande Motte, Europe’s greenest seaside resort, a city that's centered around architecture and water sports. La Grande-Motte offers 7 miles of sandy beach and a wide choice in summer activities for our campers!


La Grande Motte has a truly unique location at the gateway of the Camargue National Park in Provence. Its traditions are connected with those of the Camargue and its culinary specialties are inspired by the flavors of seafood and local produce.

Innovatively styled, the town was developed by architect Jean Balladur in the late Sixties following plans to transform the quiet, sun-drenched beaches of the Languedoc coastline into a unique tourist destination.

Formerly a desert of sand dunes and lagoons, La Grande Motte is now an inimitable holiday resort with architecture that consists of giant mole hills (mottes in French), based on Inca pyramids in Mexico and the nearby 638m Pic St-Loup, which dominates the skyline in the Coteaux du Languedoc.

La Grande Motte is an ideal base for exploring the region, discover the Camargue, the Languedoc vineyards, Aigues-Mortes, Arles, the Cevennes ...
