As head of the Social and Solidarity Tourism Network, the UNAT brings together, represents and defends the main non-profit tourist actors, committed to holidays for all.


Holidays are a break with everyday life, a time of sharing and strengthening family ties or friendships, especially for youngsters, but it is also an opportunity to flourish and develop. The UNAT defends this social value of holidays accessible to all and promotes a tourism respectful for men and territories.


The democratization of tourism has been made possible thanks to the action of the Social and Solidarity Tourism operators who offer accommodation and stays (holiday camps, youth tourism, travel, holiday villages, etc.) that allow more than 4.2 million holidaymakers leave each year.

VVF Village

VVF Villages: a committed player serving a dual purpose.


VVF Villages is an association and a long-time actor of social tourism, born from the meeting, 60 years ago, between the actors of ‘l’éducation et la Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations’, involved in the development of the territories. Thanks to the combination of a network of more than 80 holiday villages in France, VVF Villages offers quality holidays, both adult and family friendly.


VVF Villages makes the holidays accessible to the greatest number, thanks to a tariff policy that takes into account the level of income of the family but also through numerous partnerships and devices set up with social actors. This mission echoes the fundamental right to paid holidays acquired in 1936 and to the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights.



VVF Villages contributes to the planning and economic development of the territories: holiday villages located in very touristy sectors allow sites in rural and mid-mountain areas to also benefit from economic spin-offs on their territories. VVF Villages thus promotes a positive economic impact on all local authorities.
