Defending naturism

In 1950 the father of naturism, Albert Lecocq, and a group of pioneers in the movement created the CHM, a benchmark naturist campsite. The Fédération Française de Naturisme (French Naturism Federation) embraced the promotional side of things, but also and above all the protection of naturist values.

160 authoritative members work in this recognised non-profit association. They come from different arenas representing:

  • Affiliated associations
  • Accredited naturist structures
  • A supervisory board
  • A federal office
  • Specialised committees

Today there are no less than 360 naturist spaces and 50 naturist beaches which help keep this association alive in the support of naturism and to defend it against its critics. You will find all the entities on the site of the Fédération Française de Naturisme:

A structure with several roles

  • To support naturist associations through different types of aid.
  • To promote this lifestyle in France and to spread awareness of it beyond our borders.
  • To defend naturismwith the authorities and to ensure that developments in legislation do not hamper our lifestyle.

Naturist clubs

Adhering to the values of naturism is not only limited to ambling naked in a naturist campsite in summer. Advocacy actions are also organised on a daily basis throughout the year, each with the aim of defending and protecting our lifestyle and environment. You can find the association closest to you on the Fédération Française de Naturisme website.
