Inside the French nudist colony where nude sunbathers cycle, shop and even take the kids out for the day

For the Arnaoutchot naturist colony in south western France is one of the only ones to be completely “textile free” – not a string thong in sight.

According to a survey by nudism lobbyists France 4 naturist, 63 per cent were couples and 23 per cent were families with children.

But only 14 per cent of adherents are younger than 40 years old.

Yet the holiday village’s director of the colony in Vielle-Saint-Girons, Jean-Philippe Pavie, told "In recent years, we have a new generation of people coming in.

“Young couples with or without children who have an average age between 30 and 45 years, for whom naturism is a new experience.”

Wearing only a pair of sunglasses, Heike, a 36-year-old German: "For me, it's perfectly normal to be naked.”

The 45-hectare campsite-village resort has chalets, cottages and bars and on its huge beach there are surfing lessons and other water-sports. There's also organised activities for kids.

It also includes a beautiful garden and a spa with a sauna, steam room and whirlpool, ornamental pool, solarium, herbal tents and cabins.

Residents flock from across the continent, including France, Spain and Belgium and of course lots of lots of naked Germans.

There are even some from prudish Britain.
