More French

These good figures are particularly explained by the higher share of French tourists (+4% compared to 2019 and +22% compared to 2018). Foreigners were less numerous.

We lost a lot of UK customers. Their share decreased by 17% compared to 2019 and by 28% compared to 2018.

For September, Marion David was hoping for a good influx of French people and a good occupancy rate (+50% for mobile homes and +29% for coconut houses).

On the whole, the clientele comes for “short stays”, and essentially to visit the zoo. However, the municipal equipment “increases its clientele of long-term residents” and receives more and more wandering cyclists.

Attendance at the pool is half way up

“We noticed a drop in attendanceespecially this summer, we are not able to find pre-Covid numbers,” complained Laurent Hubert, president of the youth and sports commission, during a community council on September 22.

A 25% drop in attendance. observed between 2019 and 2022, in the period from January 1 to September 25. The gap which tends to narrow after the decline has been reduced to 15% as of September 2022.

According to Laurent Hubert, “the extreme heat did not help during the summer period, because the aquatic center does not have outdoor pools”.

However, the community is trying to be “positive”, focusing on outdoor projects, the construction of which will begin in October 2022 (aquafun beach, water slide, playground with water jets and snack bar).

They could allow attendance to increase in the summer of 2023.
