It's early summer at the Paradise Camping Grounds whose young manager, Tom, is taking over after the death of his parents.
For his first time in charge, Tom has quite a few challenges: beginning with an impending inspection by the Camper's Guide. He mobilizes his team â€” Rosy at reception, Xavier at the bar, Amandine at water sports and AndrĂ© in maintenance â€” in order to unmask the incognito inspectors and make the best impression possible so they can keep their stars.
Will Tom succeed in handling a staff that doesn't always make the grade and in controlling the independent-minded kid sister, Elsa, whom he is bringing up alone? And will he also find the time and energy to win the heart of the pretty but head-strong village physiotherapist?
Campers in Paradise is a collection of TV Movies.

This creates a real problem: how to deal with this sudden paternity without losing his fiancĂ©e, Ariane?
