Crafters of happiness

More than a story,
a family adventure
Crafting your happiness since 1999! That’s how we can define the Doudoux family, the Le Ridin campsite owner for 20 years! A genuine family adventure, Le Ridin is now one of the loveliest campsites in the Baie de Somme. A continuous development, with the objective of offering you the best possible holidays in Le Crotoy!
In 1982, Dany Doudoux was behind setting up a campsite in Le Crotoy. At the same time the Le Ridin campsite was created. Some years later, Le Ridin fell into disuse. At that time the farmhouse, the flagship building and characteristic of the site, became neglected. In 1999, Dany Doudoux took up the challenge of restoring Le Ridin.

As the years have passed, the campsite has moved increasingly upmarket. It thus acquired the 4th star in 2009. The swimming pool was opened in 2001.

In 2012, Dany Doudoux handed over the reigns of the campsite to his daughter Isabelle who, together with her husband Cédric, is now pursuing the family adventure. Le Ridin is nowadays a quality establishment, which respects its anchorage in Picardy tradition whilst being ever more open to the world, with its French guests, but also English, Belgian, Dutch, German, Swiss, Spanish guests etc.

Although the Doudoux family is investing all its know-how and values in the campsite, they haven’t forgotten external input either. Their colleagues are stakeholders in the development of the campsite. Who knows better the holidaymakers’ expectations than the colleagues in all the services, who rub shoulders with them on a daily basis?

By joining the voluntary chain Yelloh! Village in 2015, that you will be able to discover by clicking on the link, we wished to raise the bar in holidaymaker accommodation, regarding the experience that tourists can have by staying at Le Ridin.

Ever more comfort, ever more services, ever more wellness for you, nowadays and indeed for a very long time to come!

Shared values
Since our establishment opened in 1982, we have always wished to share with the holidaymakers the values of respect, simplicity, openness and mutual assistance. These are fundamental values that all of our colleagues have integrated, and implement every day on the campsite. Between us or when helping you, it is vital that everyone feels happy, equally in their job as during their stay at Le Ridin.
Crafting happiness, every season we do everything we can for your delight. We are here to listen to you, favouring dialogue so as to fulfil every holidaymaker’s needs.
Both committed and motivated, our colleagues are anxious to do the right thing. Straightforward, they remain discreet although naturally welcoming, being from Picardy and big-hearted, proud of their region, their jobs and their passions. They will share all of this with you, if you take the time for a chat with them!
