PRESS BOOK Press contact: MAGELLAN PR - Gillian Green Tel: +44 (0)2392 252068 - +44 (0) 7515 283 287 E-mail: LES CASTELS: CORPORATE PRESENTATION Les Castels: United around shared values From traditional camping to 4&5 star outdoor accommodations… When it was created in 1959, the Les Castels group initially offered traditional campsites. 24 independent pioneers came together around the same values and the same goal: to develop the art of French hospitality, whilst preserving environmental heritage. Today, made stronger by its experience and professionalism, Les Castels has now become a luxury outdoor accommodation chain. The chain offers its guests a certain French “art de vivre”. Les Castel's vocation is to develop the chain and bring together its independent members around a common cause and philosophy, promote valuable experiences and share skills and know-how among all. There are now 32 establishments, and they continue to give their all in protecting core values such as a quality welcome and an independent spirit. A development strategy based on a conscientious and realistic marketing approach was unanimously agreed on. This proud new identity led them to create a unique economic model: a fusion of outstanding estates and remarkable natural sites. Within Les Castels, each member retains their independence and freedom. The Chain aims to be the first 4&5-star Chain in France. Les Castels Chain has now 23 campsites which have been ranked among the 5-star sites and 9, 4-star campsites. Les Castels' ambition is to provide accommodation with a difference, to stand out from the competition's increasingly standardized offer. Les Castels: expertise and know-how for the customer's benefit Aware of the continual developments in the outdoor holiday market, Les Castels meets the requirements of its customers by offering them a wide choice of tailor-made accommodation. Foreign customers come from the UK (60%) and the Netherlands in particular (14%). Les Castels appears at a number of public and trade shows such as the Vakantierburs (Utrecht, the Netherlands), the Motorhome, Caravan & Camping Show (Birmingham, England), etc… Les Castels has over 8,200 plots available for instant booking on the website www.camping-, are spread out over 32 locations across France. A single reference and booking database for all the products provides an enhanced service quality to customers.

As outdoor accommodation specialists, Les Castels are wholeheartedly committed to a sustainable development approach and aim to continue developing the following key issues within a protected environment:  Aesthetic accommodation which is integrated into the surrounding landscape and ongoing environmental conservation work;  Light and moveable installations (mobile homes, tents, caravans etc.);  Adherence to regulations outlining the distance between each plot to maintain the privacy and harmony of guests' stays. An improved and respected environment The environment protection labels Les Castels Chain set itself a goal to have all its members receive an environment protection label such as The Green Key by the end of 2017. This has all but been achieved, as the only member not yet classified is a brand new site that is just being built! The European Ecolabel award Today, already 2 Castels campsites have been awarded with the European Ecolabel: Castel Le Château de Poinsouze and Castel La Garangeoire, both since 2011. The Green Key award In 2018, the Chain has 31 members which own the Green Key label. The only site not yet awarded is brand new and only just finishing construction for the new season.. "Clef Verte" (Green Key) is an environmental management award for tourist accommodation existing in 32 countries and is committed, in particular, to:  Accommodating no more than fifty families per hectare;  Maintaining at least 20% of green space across the site;  Maintaining the site acceptably clean.

Glamping The trend of ‘glamping’ refers to open air lodging that combines comfort and luxury whilst staying close to nature in an authentic setting. Les Castels has been innovators in glamping since they started up in 1959. Glamping is thriving today and at Les Castels all sorts of different types of accommodation are now offered so one may ‘glamp’ in style. The sites we recommend for a fun glamping experience include: Château de Chanteloup, Domaine de la Paille Basse, Petit Trianon de St Ustre, Château de Martragny, Le Brévedent, Château de Poinsouze, Domaine des Ormes… Wellness/Spa holidays The popularity of wellness breaks is another trend that is growing. It is now recognized that spa holidays do not have to be so expensive and that a peaceful setting, a complete menu of excellent treatments and good facilities can be had at more modest rates. Les Castels sites particularly good for wellness stays: Castel La Garangeoire is offering sauna and massage and Castel Domaine de la Bergerie is also offering balneo bath, hammam, and even incorporate a beauty salon. Unusual stays In 2004, Les Ormes Domaine & Resort was the very first site in France to feature the now famous treehouses. The concept has since charmed visitors looking for more unusual types of accommodation. It also started a trend of other ‘different’ places to stay throughout many of Les Castels sites. Sites with treehouses include: Domaine des Ormes, Château de Lez-Eaux, Parc de Fierbois, Petit Trianon de St Ustre, La Grande Métairie. Sites with accommodation over the water include: Domaine des Ormes. Sites with gypsy caravans: Château de Poinsouze, La Grande Métairie, Le Manoir de Ker An Poul.
