Les Champs Blancs celebrated its 50th birthday in 2015 and is still run by the same family that started it all those years ago. The trees and flowering shrubs have matured to provide a shady, green, calm environment two kilometres from the sea at Rochelongue. A cycle route follows the road to the beach and bicycles can be hired on site. There are over 300 pitches with 155 level, sandy pitches for touring units. All have 10A electricity and water and, unusually, 110 also have private sanitary cabins, which are popular. Mobile homes and chalets can be rented. The area nearest the main road, where you will find the leisure facilities, is well screened by trees to deaden possible road noise. The superb pool complex includes connecting circular pools, cascade, jacuzzi, bridges and palms, with new toboggans in a separate pool.
Games, shows and competitions are arranged in July and August. Les Champs Blancs is set in the centre of the three areas of Agde. There is the old town of Agde with a history going back to Greek and Roman times and known as the ‘black pearl of the Mediterranean’. Its striking cathedral is made of black volcanic rock. Grau d’Agde is the port with a fish quay on the Hérault river and from where white sandy beaches stretch past Rochelongue to Cap d’Agde. Finally Cap d’Agde is the newer tourist centre with a large marina. In summer the population is said to increase by ten times. It also boasts a very popular naturist centre.
