Description

Annales de Géographie - Année 2000 - Volume 109 - Numéro 616 - Pages 631-654
La Grande-Motte was created from scratch as a tourist resort in 1966 as part of the French government's plan for touristic development on the Languedoc-Roussillon coast. Up to the 1980s., it was a seaside resort with two components: a yachting harbour and a residential area. Nowadays, however, it has developed into a dual seaside resort, including a permanent town with differentiated districts, and a summertime town over which the former tends to encroach. A discontinuous dissociation/association axis separates the two components of the city. A complex society has been in the making for the last thirty years, its main characteristics being the increase of permanent population and of old-age pensioners. Alongside these two groups of people there are frequent visitors, increasingly present even during the winter, week-enders who own a house or a flat, and lastly holiday-makers in the summer season.
