We are Ed and Astrid van der Beek and since 2005 the owners of camping Lou Passavous.
Ed was born in 1964 in Castricum, worked until 2005 as a dog handler with the police NHN Alkmaar. Astrid was born in 1965 in Heemskerk, worked until 2005 as a management assistant at the former Hoogovens IJmuiden.
A wish to cycle through South East Asia together a half years we have achieved in 2002. During this trip we decided to try to let our other wishes fulfilled, namely managing a campsite in France also. Having sought 1 1/2 years we found camping Lou Passavous. It was love at first sight. Our campsite is situated just 160 km above the Mediterranean sea and at 1200 meters altitude in the mountains. As a result we have real summers and winters.
We find it very nice to run the camp in the summer and make day hikes with guests in the mountains. In the winter we have here a lot of snow and we are also often found on the slopes with our snowboards. The remaining free time in the winter we spend on maintenance at the campsite, visits to family and friends in the Netherlands, promoting the site and when it is possible a cycling holiday in South East Asia.
We hope this short impression of us have given and to welcome you at our campsite in the Alpes de Haute Provence.
