Group A Family Story
A short retrospective of the 40th anniversary of the "Domaine du Mas de Saboth"
In July 1978, Evelyne and Jean DUQUESNE arrived in this Holiday Village created in 1963 by the DUVAL Family of Normandy, and as a sign of fate, it was put up for sale!
The LOT was a Department still unknown, but it seduced them, and it was in January 1979 that the adventure began with some of their children : Jean Marc, Pierre and Olivier. Francky, who stayed in Lille, has always been an active participant and has welcomed us every year for more than 30 years to his discos to celebrate our beautiful New Year's greetings.
At the beginning, it was: 46 "Relax" chalets, 1 swimming pool, an entertainment room and above all an unobstructed view of the Lot Valley....
Over the years, Evelyne and Jean have had the pleasure of working with a large part of The Family: children, daughters-in-law and grandchildren.
Véronique, Didier and Baptiste, have provided invaluable support for the evolution of the Domaine for several years.
40 years later, in January 2019, 3 generations are working in harmony and the adventure continues...
With Evelyne and Jean, Olivier and Fanny, Hugo and Charline and in summer: Léo, Eliot and Loïc, the Domaine du "Mas de Saboth" continues to become more beautiful and spacious in a friendly atmosphere and family spirit!
