Camping Du Vieux Château : Sunset

Saint Michel-Chef-Chef… a strange name for a commune, isn’t it?

Without going into details that mix history and linguistics, remember that it is essentially the result of an evolution of the French language. The commune was called Saint-Michel du Chevecier, which became Chevechef in the 17th century, then Chef Chef. For a while, the town was called Chef-Chef to avoid religious references. In 1794, the city finally got back its Saint and its two “Chiefs”!

In our Camping du Vieux Château in Saint Michel Chef Chef you will have the opportunity to discover the town and its secrets! That’s why we detail below all the information you need to know during your stay.
