Welcome to the South of France

 

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. Thankfully, Siblu holiday parks also offer it all with a selection of four wonderfully situated campsites in the South of France to choose from: Le Montourey (Provence / Côte d’Azur), La Carabasse, Le Lac des Rêves or Les Sables du Midi (all Languedoc). Each park is within striking distance of the coast and offers an ideal base for further exploring astonishing scenery and the charming towns and villages inland.

What to Expect from a Trip to the South of France

 

Think South of France, think spectacular rocky headlands, long, sandy beaches, and the inviting, turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. If you're staying at Le Montourey Ste-Maxime and St-Raphael on the Côte d’Azur are worth seeking out for beach fun or a spot of snorkelling. In Languedoc, the golden sand seems infinite and there are many great spots to pitch your towel and bucket-and-spade. Try Vias or Valras Plage near campsites Les Sables du Midi and La Carabasse, or the resorts of Carnon and La Grande Motte nearer to Le Lac des Rêves. Wherever you decide to go, you’ll find everything you need for a great family day-out at the seaside.

In Languedoc, the Canal du Midi is a different sort of playground – an extraordinary feat of engineering and a beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can also explore its banks by bike, with a departure point close to campsite La Carabasse. And Carcassonne – a ‘go-to’ destination in its own right – runs a superlative summer festival in July, celebrating art in all its forms and for all ages. A visit will make your holiday complete.
