In July, holidaymakers were there, hotels and campsites filled up. The month of August should follow the same line.

Vacationers are numerous on the market of Antibes (Alpes-Maritimes), Wednesday August 3. The clientele is international, even if the Russians are missing this year, due to the war in Ukraine. In Hendaye, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, tourism professionals are not complaining. Attendance slightly exceeds that of 2019, before the Covid.

Good surprise also in Puy-de-Dôme, in a campsite in Chambon-sur-Lac, where 15% of tourists are foreigners, and they like it. “We had booked for five nights, but as we are comfortable here, we took two more nights, it’s beautiful here”, says a man. Despite appearances, in the Dordogne, July was rather shy. Reservations and attendance are down. Finally, in Corsica, the results are mixed. There were more tourists but less spending.
