It all began in 1950 when Albert Lococq rented some 23 hectares in the Médoc with access to the Atlantic to set up Centre Helio Marin, but by 1954 he realised by being an association limited expansion. So Lococq set up SOCNAT to operate naturist holiday centres.
With five campsites, either by the sea or in the middle of the countryside, SOCNAT can offer somewhere suitable for you, whether its a tent pitch or rented accommodation.
Now under the new ownership of the Vacallans Group, it has been decided that from November 2017 SOCNAT will change its name to Tohapi Naturist with an expanded range of naturist campsites, of varying sizes, in France and elsewhere.
A new website www.tohapi-naturist.co.uk will be live from 2 November 2017.
