We are often asked what happens at Félix de la Bastide in winter...
You will find the answers in this section, with news of what to expect when you next come on holiday!
Our goal is, as it has always been, that you have a great time with us.
This is why the campsite applies the national health protocol for campsites, so that you can fully enjoy your holidays, without stress, while preserving your safety and the one of our employees.
These solutions may evolve over the summer, depending on the situation and the regulations. Don't hesitate to ask us the complete guide by mail.
Today, the main measures are:
* daily disinfection of sanitary facilities, deckchairs, swimming pool (treated with chlorine which is also a disinfectant recommended by the WHO), reception, nautical equipment, ...
* products / soap available at 9 points on the campsite
* free access to the facilities so far distanciation is respected (easy because the spaces are very large)
* wider menu of takeaways with always the bar, ice cream, bread and pastries
* exceptionally this year, blankets will not be provided in rentals
* for the moment, no table service and no inflatable structure.
So that this year, holidays remain very beautiful.

The cicadas , symbols of our beautiful Provence, arrived in early June.
In fact it is the males that sing to attract females .
This requires that the temperature is over 25 ° C and also sweet nights.
On the archaeological site of St. Blaise , you will be able to easily admire them and see everywhere on the stones the shells of their last molt.
For Candlemas (or candles feast), we traditionally eat pancakes. Well in Provence , we above all eat "navettes".
These are small crispy biscuits usually flavored with orange blossom that have the form of boats to symbolize the arrival of Saintes-Maries on the Provençal coast.
If you go to the market, have a look, you will surely find a pastry chef / baker who makes delicious "navettes".
During summer in Provence , people like to meet friends in ports during the "sardinades", traditional village festivals where everybody eats ... sardines ... and other seafoods with french fries.
In winter, on Sundays in January and February, people meet again friends at the "oursinades". It is still very friendly but urchins replace sardines and feasts take place at Sausset les Pins and Carry le Rouet . And for those like us who are not fans of sea urchins, you can always enjoy delicious mussels.
