Discover the history of your guests: Eloïse and Xavier

Have you ever thought about it?

That feeling of wanting to dump everything to change your life? Leaving his CDI, his family, his friends, his region, overcoming his fears and taking the plunge… not so simple!! Well, that’s the choice we did in June 2020. Both from Normandy, salesman and administrative assistant, we thought it must be the right time at 46 for a conversion.

How did we get to this point?

Our motivations were multiple for this new life project but the main one was to get closer to our daughter Mathilde 21 years old living in Marseille for 2 years and whose remoteness we suffered a lot. Of course the desire to start a family business, to be confronted with new challenges and to give another meaning to his professional life while maintaining a certain quality of life were also a source of motivation.

But why a campsite and “Les Cruses”?

A conversion, a change of life yes… But what do you do?
So by bringing together our skills, our talent and our passion, we thought but why not a campsite!

A year to find our happiness! Lots of campground visits not given anything. Until the day we visited the campsite Les Cruses and there it was the favorite assured despite a big episode cevenol that day. Welcome to The Ardèche !!! The choice was made in its own right each on our side with a very strong desire to drop off our suitcases in a place like this where we find the calm of an authentic and preserved nature, the charm of the terraces with its stone walls and its centuries-old chestnut trees. A real family campsite with a human size typically Ardéchois.

All that remained was to tell our 16-year-old son Sacha. So easy to live with that he validated everything right away

The difficulties:

Not to mention this health crisis that has disrupted our plans a lot, we still buy, we buy more, we still buy, we buy more… in short, we did not encounter any real constraints in the implementation of the project. Like what… when it’s supposed to happen, it’s done!

Is it unconsciousness, carelessness or no more or less a fierce will to realize our dream? Only time will tell us right or wrong!

In the meantime we have just finished our first season and are very satisfied with our conversion because we have the satisfaction of not making a mistake, we already love this new profession and will do everything so that you can spend the best possible holidays with us at the campsite Les Cruses in south Ardèche

Looking forward to meeting you very quickly…
