Camping Gayeulles, the only public camping in Rennes, remains closed to the public this summer … because of work undertaken since January. A building site or 2 million, for a renewed offer of accommodation.
Workers put the finishing touches to the renovation site camping Gayeulles, engaged for several months. “Reopening scheduled after August 15th,” said a poster at the entrance of the site. Only recreation centers are open from July 1st until August 4th. However the reception staff is present to meet the campers who come to the entrance or call the standard. Tourists this summer forced to find another base that Rennes.
Under construction since January
In other words, camping Gayeulles is passing on this season. The site redevelopment work was initially started in September, following the call for tenders launched by early 2016 Citedia, the mixed company that manages the structure on behalf of the city of Rennes. Except that the building permit was issued in December (contacted repeatedly Citedia declined to communicate the work).
The site has therefore started in January, too late to hope to open summer vacation (the site was originally planned between October and May). B3 Ecodesign, manufacturer of houses built with shipping containers, has been selected by Citedia to drive all the work, design and implementation. Namely the redevelopment of the local host, the construction of new toilets, new networks (water, sanitation, electricity), creating a secure pay parking reserved for camping cars, especially the installation of 18 small pavilions containers from 25 to 35 m2, offering far superior to conventional mobile homes benefits.
After this construction 2 million, camping Gayeulles took quite a facelift, likely to boost its future attendance … once reopened.
