Abstract

Rising living standards, population growth and added leisure all act to increase the demand for outdoor recreation, particularly in rural destinations. Recreational and tourism activity in rural areas has expanded significantly in all developed countries (see Sharpley 2004 for a recent review). In France, the countryside is ranked as the first destination for recreation at the national level, preceding coastal destinations (Perol Dumont et al. 2005) in terms of the number of visitors.
