Aude: the boom in floating holiday homes

Living on the water, many have dreamed of it. We are not talking about a boat but a floating house. Without taking off, vacationers are experimenting this summer with what could be the habitat of the future. On the Mediterranean coast, a dominant model is threatened. With erosion, the sea nibbles every year up to five meters of land.

Philippe Robert, director of a campsite in Vias, in Hérault, has moved several bungalows: “There were 41 locations that were deleted”. Rather than a danger for tourism, some want to see it as a solution. Richard Perdu designed two floating houses moored in the port of Gruissan (Aude). For their vacation this year, Mélanie Croizet and Wilhel Alaoui wanted something different. They paid 180 euros to spend the night on the water. The floating dwellings are a new source of income for the port of Gruissan. 35 new cabins will soon be installed.
