Family Success Story

Club Farret is one of the first campsites in Vias Plage. Since 1956, the Farret and Giner families have welcomed vacationers of all nationalities and all backgrounds. Flashback to the history of a small campsite which has become a reference in the outdoor hotel industry.

Club Farret is above all the story of the two Farret and Giner families.

Once upon a time there was Farret

It all started in 1956 on the shores of the Mediterranean. Henriette and André Farret created the Farinette campsite in Vias Plage on a former marshy area. It is one of the very first campsites to emerge in Vias Plage. No one can yet predict the growth that tourism and the success of the family business will experience. It is a small establishment where life is good, where vacationers are almost all regulars. At the time, there were no cottages or mobile homes, holidaymakers pitched their tents facing the sea. Despite everything, Farret already stood out from the competition by being the first campsite to be equipped with sanitary facilities. Real state-of-the-art installations, this service is a high-end innovation in the 1950s.

From Farinette campsite to Club Farret

Club Farret is also the story of a meeting. That of Danielle, the daughter of Henriette and André, and of Robert who is staying at the campsite at Vias Plage for the first time. He falls under the spell of Danielle and the Farret campsite, he will never leave the place.

Self-taught, passionate and visionary, now at the head of the company, Robert innovates: rental accommodation, aquatic complex, openness to foreign customers, high-end services... Farinette campsite becomes Club Farret. A modern, high-end campsite which has retained the authentic, friendly and family spirit of its beginnings.

In 2007, Robert passed the campsite on to his son Philippe who joined the family business at a young age. For 15 years, he trained with his father, integrating all the services and occupying all the positions. He knew how to prove himself.

The first campsite with themed rentals in Hérault

Like father, like son. Philippe innovates and takes risks, to offer an ever more intense, unique and extraordinary experience to his travelers.

His travels around the world inspired him and he quickly developed the concept of themed neighborhoods. Its objective is to take its customers on trips to the four corners of the world, to change their scenery and make them dream so that their experience at Farret is always different from that offered by other Vias campsites.

In 2012, the first rental district with lagoons was created at Club Farret. Pacific cottages are quickly becoming the most popular. Building on this success, the Marina district wasted no time in appearing in 2015.

Completely unprecedented in France, the creation of these districts was a real challenge both architecturally and technically. What differentiates them the most from other campsite rentals and the competition: the water at the foot of the cottage. A lagoon approximately 30cm deep in which swimming is permitted. Large furnished terraces allow you to enjoy the landscape and the freshness of the lagoons.

Their unique & innovative character perfectly reflects the Giner family's desire: to cultivate one's difference and never be like anyone else. Shaking up the codes, revisiting and modernizing camping holidays… That’s the Farret touch!

Club Farret was able to convince thanks to its swimming pools, its services, and its rentals worthy of a 5-star campsite but above all thanks to the investment and passion of the Farret and Giner Families.
