Updated: 04/08/2021

 Travel is on the cards once again, after over a year of uncertainty, lockdowns and restrictions! 

It’s not too late to get excited about a French holiday this summer.

Here’s a recap of the current situation (don’t forget to keep an eye on government websites for any updates):

Official DFA advice can be found on the France page of their website>

Brittany is France's north westernmost tip that reaches bravely outwards to the Atlantic Ocean. It is a delightful area to discover, and being well served with ferry ports bringing it even closer to Ireland. And there are many other reasons to choose Siblu holiday park, Domaine de Kerlann, Le Conguel or Les Pierres Couchées as a base.

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.

Discover the beauty of France's West Coast in one of our Charente-Maritime or Vendée campsites. This beautiful stretch of Atlantic coast is a holidaymaker’s paradise, suitable for families and groups of all ages.

If you want the freedom of bringing your own car to France the ferry can be a great way to start your holiday. Many families find that the journey itself becomes an adventure for the kids, especially as many of them have supervised play areas, cinemas and children’s entertainers. Grown-ups can enjoy the shops, bars and restaurants.

The kids have packed buckets and spades and you want to sunbathe on golden sands… It has to be a beach holiday in France. France has miles of sandy coast to choose from, much of it just a short drive – or walk – from one of our holiday parks. The only decision you have to make is whether to go wild on the Atlantic side or a bit ritzier on the Med!
