Dear future resident,
We think that it is essential to know about the place where you would like to spend the best times of the year, which are your holidays and to understand why Les Prairies du Lac has been so successfull during all these past years, attracting a lot of people, who are now Happy Owners of their own mobile homes and enjoying the place and its area.
So we are happy to introduce to you the origin and evolution of our campsite.
A lot of improvements have been made between the time we bought it and nowdays, listening and following the desires of our residents :
A second heated swimming-pool has been built, the previous one and the paddle pool have been covered, a beautiful british style Pub with two terrasses replaced the small old existing bar, one of the two terrasses of the Pub has been later covered, a boules ground and a new playground for the children with a shelter have been created, security barriers at the entry and exit of the campsite have been installed.
Les Prairies du Lac, was created in 1973 by a previous owner ; it started with 90 plots with 2 stars and then has been extended to 123 plots 2 stars in 1995 ; it was open just 6 months per year and was welcoming only caravans and tents.
November 30th 1998, seduced by its location in this picturesque village of Apremont and in its very green landscape, our company, International Camping Ltd, created in 1988 by its two associates, Guylain RAVERDY & Catherine LEMEE, acquires the campsite.
From November 30th 1998, the campsite will be open all year round.
July 15th 1999, the capacity of the campsite becomes 200 plots in 3 stars ; the market of the mobile homes becoming very important and following the desire of a lot of potential customers, we decided to pass from the "tourism" activity to the "leisure" one and equip the plots with a direct sewage.
Les Prairies du Lac being full since 2003 and a lot of potential customers waiting for an available plot, we decided to create an extention for 79 plots. Our British partner "Caravans in the Sun" didn'd need more than 1 year to fill it. The campsite has at that time 279 plots.
September 8th 2009, Les Prairies du Lac gets classified 4 stars. The campsite being again full, a new extension will start and July 8th 2012, it gets a new classification for 359 plots in 4 stars.
June 15th 2017 : new classification for 361 plots in 4 stars.
Our company "International Camping" celebrated its 32nd Anniversary this year 2020, and Les Prairies du Lac its 22nd Anniversary under its management ; a very friendly and happy community has built up through the years.
We hope that all this information may lead you to become a new resident on Les Prairies du Lac and await your call or e-mail.
Guylain and Catherine
