It’s with a huge sense of satisfaction that I’m starting this month’s Nudesletter under the shining sun in the naturist zone of the Bois de Vincennes. I once again thank the City of Paris and Town Hall of the 12th Arrondissement for the area’s reopening. A charter has been placed at the five entry points. Please respect it and help ensure that it is respected by others. If you see anything that isn’t in keeping with the naturist ethic, please talk to the people concerned. It’s in our interest to work together to keep this space decent. The police survey the area several times a day. This is a place of conviviality, so talk with others, share your picnics and make new friends!
This area is open every day for six months, until October 14th, with hours that will change with the sun:
April 14th till April 30th: 8am - 8:30pm
May 1st till August 31st: 8am - 9:30pm
September 1st till September 30th: 8am - 8:30pm
October 1st till October 14th: 8am - 7pm
We have already blocked several dates for some communal picnics that I will soon post on our website. In May, the dates are Sunday 6th and Sunday 20th.
Here is the map in case you don’t yet know where the area is.
Events in April:
It was a month full of activity, starting with our big bowling tournament on the 3rd, where over a hundred naturists had fun with a sporty, friendly and tasty evening, thanks to the culinary skills of Béatrice.
On the 7th, we went to Orleans for a spa evening with our friends from the Orleans Sun Club and other naturists who had come from all over France.
On the 8th, the huge international jazz star Nelly Pouget gave a concert at the Club Gymnique de France.
We had two events at O’Naturel, one on the 12th for a stand up buffet and dance party and another on the 26th for a dinner.
Our nude visit to the Palais de Tokyo is set for next Saturday, May 5th. 161 people are signed up, with a waiting list of over 30,000. Never has a naturist event attracted so much interest. I sent an email to all the guests to confirm their presence. If you didn’t receive it, that means you’re not registered and don’t need to turn up on May 5th. Only those on the list will be admitted. However, don’t despair! We’ll be organising other extraordinary events! Follow this Nudesletter closely so as not to miss out on any future outings.

On May 6th, if the sun is out, we’re organising a trip to Berck Beach in the North. Bring your picnic baskets filled with nice things to share.
On Saturday May 12th we have another interesting outing on offer with a naturist comedy show in Paris. The comedian Fred Brulé will be nude on stage with two performances. Book your places for just €15 online with your credit card, or at the pool by cash or cheque.
On Sunday 13th there’s a pétanque tournament organised at the Club Gymnique de France in Villecresnes at 2:30pm, followed by drinks at 4. Bring a dish and a bottle to share.
On Monday 14th we’re organising our third water polo tournament at Roger Le Gall Swimming Pool from 9pm. You can sign up from today.
On Sunday May 27th, our members are invited to our Annual General Meeting at the Club Gymnique de France at 10am. After the meeting, it’s party time! Our young and sprightly association is turning 65! So come along and celebrate this big event with us.
You can register for these events by sending us an email, or at the welcome desk of the pool. For more information on our outings, please take a look at the events page on our website.
Monthly drinks: On Monday May 7th, it’s the festival of tarts. Bring your home made pies and tarts, either sweet or savoury, plus drinks.
Closures: It’s May, so that means several annual public holidays. Please take note of the following dates on which the pool and gym will be closed:
Monday April 30th
Tuesday May 1st
Tuesday May 8th
Thursday May 10th
Monday May 21st
Massages: Our masseur Thomas, who gives his free time to us every Monday along with Hervé, has created a Facebook page. For those who have already experienced one of his massages, he would be thrilled if you could leave a comment. For those who haven’t yet had the pleasure, please “like” his page, share it and contact him there.
