Explore other regions in France

Visit the beautiful Vendée region for a quintessentially French camping holiday in an idyllic spot. Situated on the West Coast near the Loire Valley, south of Nantes and north of La Rochelle, the sparkling, sun-soaked “Côte de Lumière” boasts kilometres of Blue Flag sandy beaches.

The southwest coast of France is an incredibly diverse area, full of beaches, nature and culture. It is also home to four amazing Siblu holiday parks: Domaine de Soulac, La Réserve, Les Viviers and Les Dunes de Contis. Outside of the parks themselves, the South West boasts a huge range of things to see and do, which makes it ideal for all kinds of holidaymakers.

Nowhere is more synonymous with sea and sunshine than the South of France. Warm, iridescent Mediterranean location – tick. French Riviera glitz and glamour – tick. Authentic flavours and savours of Provence – tick.

France may be especially popular for its magnificent coastlines and golden sandy beaches, but it also has so much more beautiful countryside to explore further inland. Stay with Siblu in the Loire Valley or the Rhone Alps and discover stunning scenery, fascinating history, amazing architecture and delicious local delicacies. 

Normandy Highlights

World War II History
The D-Day landing beaches in Normandy attracts visitors for its history, which is tied to the fighting that occurred between Allied forces and Germans during World World II. Fascinating remains still litter the landscape with memorials, German bunkers and gun batteries. Today you can enjoy these beautiful beaches during a quiet stroll, and immerse yourself into its history with a guide on-site. This site is a cemetery dedicated to the United Kingdom in recognition of the British sacrifices made during the two world wars. A lasting tribute to all those who fought, this provides visitors with a peaceful place of remembrance in pretty, tranquil surroundings.

Beaches
Grandcamp, Omaha and Arromanches are synonymous with the D-Day landing sites, and to visit them is informative, poignant and thought-provoking in equal measure. And yet these are definitely must-see places in their own right with sandy Norman beaches just right for a spot of paddling and some sandcastle building. You can also get adventurous with thrilling water sports: from sand yachting to kite surfing the region’s long, glorious coastline offers it all. This panoramic cinema, perched on the Arromanches clifftops, will provide you with the chance to experience the Battle of Normandy as if you were really there through archival images. It’s another moving, pedagogic reminder for all visitors of the area’s historical significance and its impact on the world.
Culture picto
Food and Drink
Normandy is France’s land of milk, cream and cheese: discover the true taste of Camembert! If you’re feeling brave, try andouillette – a tripe sausage that’s not for the faint-hearted. Easier on the palate, the region’s bountiful orchards produce sweet apples for juices, cider and the finest of tarts. Or regional tipples such as Calvados, an apple ‘brandy’, and Pommeau, an enticing cider-Calvados mix. Port-en-Bessin is a pretty fishing port – try lunching on the freshest of seafood – delicate Coquille St. Jacques (scallops) are a particular favourite and specialty of the region.

Brittany Highlights

Beach picto
La Presqu’île de Crozon
The Crozon peninsula is the central point in the Finistère region, offering three different striking seascapes: the Roadstead of Brest in the north, the southern bay of Douarnenez, and in the west, the Sea of Iroise. It’s a corner of paradise, and to give you an idea of the beauty of this area, the presqu’ile has been named a natural reserve. You’ll have plenty of excuses to walk around and discover the creeks, rocky coastlines, glittering waters and amongst the wild vegetation, the ruins and fortified Tour Vauban, a war-touched 17th century garrison and UNESCO World Heritage site.
Castle picto
The megalithic complex at Carnac
This is the most famous megalithic complex in the region: it has been listed as a historical monument since 1889 and is known for the incredibly unique alignement of its stones. The two main sites alone (Ménec and Kermario) consist of almost 3000 menhirs spread out over almost 4 kilometers! The presence of menhirs, dolmens, tumulus and other structures bear testimony to the fact that this architecture dates from the neolithic period.
Culture picto
Lorient Interceltic Festival
Celebrate everything Celtic at this huge festival. Every August the town of Lorient welcomes over 700,000 visitors from around Europe, from Galicia to Scotland, to celebrate the cultural traditions of Celtic nations. It’s a treat for your eyes and ears, as performers get dressed up and provide full days and evenings of entertainment in the form of concerts, parades and dances.
