The pleasure of slow tourism at the Badjâne farm
15 February 2017 – Badjâne
Is life going too quickly? Slow down! Reconnect with nature and your family. Live the slow tourism experience at the Badjâne farm, in the heart of the Cévennes national park.
What is slow tourism?
A recent concept, slow tourism is about making the most of the here and now while travelling. Forget about pre-planned itineraries; slow tourists focus on improvising and being independent, spontaneous and free. The best destinations are the mountains and the countryside, rather than Ibiza or Saint Tropez. A back-to-basics holiday to break away from the daily routine.
Slow tourism: why is it so popular?
Slow tourism puts the emphasis on quality, not quantity. In total opposition to today’s instant society, the concept is thriving. A recent IPSOS study showed that European citizens have a real need to make more of life. 53% of those interviewed said they wanted to take it easy when they visited another country. With these figures, it would appear that over-organised holidays are not compatible with relaxation.
Badjâne and slow tourism
Leave all your daily stresses behind you! Come and enjoy a re-energising stay in the Cévennes at the Badjâne farm and book your family starry-night donkey walk. Choose from one of our 5 routes around the site and take the time to appreciate nature and rediscover its beauty.
Follow the gentle pace of your donkey and explore the streams, rocks and all of mother nature’s simple pleasures with your children.
Once back at the farm, we have a wide range of activities for you to enjoy. You can groom the animals, walk the goats, play games, read a book in our library or even do some gardening and cooking. And it is often in the kitchen that our visitors decide what they are going to do the next day. Obviously, all depends on what you fancy and how tired you are. You do what you want, when you want.
For a weekend or an entire week, experience the pleasures of slow tourism at the Badjâne donkey farm. The ideal family holiday destination for relieving stress and recharging your batteries.
