A holiday village like no other
The Magnans holiday village was created in 1979, on the initiative of the Longo Maï Association located in Limans. This agricultural cooperative has developed many other activities: sheep and poultry breeding, organic market gardening and raspberries, bread making. Most of their production is on sale in the small shop in the holiday village and on the famous Forcalquier market, on Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons. For the past twenty years, Longomaï has also hosted a free radio station in the region, Radio Zinzine . Find out more about the Longomaï project .
We share our ideas for outings and visits, but also the small events that rock our holiday village and the Longomaï group. There is more to it than in a nut.
