Give meaning to your free time and travel

When Mathieu Bessou created his campervan rental company in the Basque Country at the start of 2021, it was above all to pass on his passion for travel. Backpacker, he went everywhere for 5 years after studying international trade specializing in hotels, restaurants and tourism. He left the university to explore the world and meet others. Because traveling means broadening your perspectives while coming into contact with the unknown, the unknown! After a professional experience in tourism in the Basque Country, where he put down his suitcases in 2007, he takes pleasure in exploring the coastal nature and the mountains from his new home.

The COVID crisis has changed many perspectives. The changing tourism sector pushes him to think about how to create a structure to help lovers of large natural spaces to escape in all seasons, in safety with all the necessary comfort (but not the superfluous). How to reinvent the current tourist offer, share the pleasure of discovering new things? Offer roaming without a specific goal, for the simple pleasure of disconnecting for a few days? Mathieu then imagines Woody Van (link in french), which is much more than a simple campervan rental company...

Woody Van, campervan rental in the southwest, but not only!

The rental of a van for 2 people or 4 people, it exists. Take keys and go on an adventure, Mathieu knows. What interests him is rethinking the trip, adding a touch of Slow Tourism (enjoying the trip for what it is, at a pace where you can marvel, not just head towards a destination) and many environmental values. For this, he chooses an authentic and trustworthy vehicle model: the timeless Volkswagen combivan! He then called on Julien Perimony from the Campervans Montblanc company, which made top-of-the-range fittings and with the finest materials (in Haute-Savoie).

Whether the van road trip is short, or extended over several weeks, he wants to offer a warm, functional and well-designed interior to travelers. You have to take advantage and think every cm2, make the interior autonomous, so that sleeping in a van is pleasant, comfortable and that movements are done with ease, at the cruising speed of this van perfect for strolling!

Mathieu offers two types of vehicles: the Authentic (link in french) and the Atypical (link in french). The first allows you to go in summer and in between seasons, it is equipped with beds for 4 people, an air conditioning, a shower (solar) and a large water tank, a refrigerator, sockets electric, solar panels and a volumetric alarm to sleep in nature with peace of mind. For the pleasure of driving, cruise control and radar are your allies. The interior fittings are of high quality, all in beautifully crafted French origin wood. The seats are comfortable so the road is never a problem; when you take a break you can relax in the van or outside, everything is planned. A kitchen kit will be given to you and plenty of storage space for taking food and your belongings.

As for the Atypique van, it is ready for adventure in all seasons. It benefits from the same services as its sidekick, the Authentic, with in addition to hot water, exterior blinds and a reversible air conditioning / heating. Driving comfort is enhanced by a s automatic gearbox.

Woody Van's values, ecological commitment

Before leaving, you will meet Mathieu who, as you have understood, attaches great importance to the values linked to his activity. To be in line with his ecological aspirations, he joined the 1% for the Planet Association and therefore donates 1% of his annual turnover to non-profit organizations.

If the adjustment of vans was produced with care, from the most local and eco-responsible materials possible, care is also taken to the interview. This is how all the products used for cleaning vehicles are 100% eco-labeled. So that the users of the vans can themselves contribute to this beautiful spirit, Mathieu offers hygiene and maintenance kits, with products that respect the environment. For more information, see the page which sets out the actions taken by Woody Van to respect the environment (link in french).
