Alan Rogers Review
Origan is a naturist site set in the mountains behind Nice at a height of 500 m. The access road is single track and winding with passing places. The site’s terrain is fairly wild and some roads are stony, so it is unsuitable for caravans longer than six metres due to the steep slopes. The 60 touring pitches across the site, are irregular shapes and sizes and have good views. Electricity connection (6A) is possible on most pitches (by long cable). The bar area, backing onto an impressive rock face (lit at night), overlooks a very attractive pool complex. Reservation is necessary in high season.
The scenery is impressive and footpaths in and around the site offer good, if fairly strenuous, walks up to a height of 1,000 m. A wide range of activities are arranged including guided walking tours in the mountains, days out to the Mediterranean coast for boat trips and the occasional musical evening in the bar/restaurant.
During the low season visitors are more than likely to come across one or two donkeys that are allowed to roam freely around the site roads. A variety of accommodation is also available to rent including Bengali tents and luxury chalets.
