One tip is not to underestimate the drive time to your destination. Taking a ferry to Calais, Caen or one of the other north coast ports will leave you with a five or six hour journey to the popular Vendee and Charente Maritime regions on the west coast, and a full day of driving to the south coast.

For Domaine de Kerlann in Brittany, the port at Roscoff is less than two hours away, with travel from St Malo under three hours, and from Caen less than four hours. 

Q: Which Siblu campsites are near to beaches?
A: Almost all of the Siblu campsites are within a short drive of great beaches, with the exception of Domaine de Dugny in the Loire Valley, and Rives de Condrieu in the Rhone Alpes.

On the south coast, where the weather is warmest, sites are less likely to have covered pools.
