Holiday Parks Near the Surf

 

The Mediterranean and the northern coast of Brittany sometimes deliver waves, but the best surf can be found along the South Atlantic coastline because the choppy Bay of Biscay funnels the swells. Our holiday villages of Les Charmettes and Bonne Anse Plage are perfectly placed to catch them! And for those less sure-footed there’s always sand yachting…

 

Discover the West Coast

With 140 km worth of sandy beaches, the largest departmental cycle network in France and amazing water sports opportunities, Vendée is the place to be for anyone who’s after an active outdoor getaway or who’s craving the feel of the sea breeze in their hair. 

Charente-Maritime is a sunny seaside region of West Coast France where you’ll find three of our most popular Siblu holiday parks: Les Charmettes, Bonne Anse Plage and La Pignade.

Wild sandy beaches and calm bays, amazing seafood and endless vineyards, fascinating historical sites and unique coastal towns: there’s so much to discover when you choose a camping holiday in South West France!

Family Fun in the South West of France

 

For those who like things a bit calmer, there’s La Réserve on the south-west Atlantic coast. As well as enjoying the sea and the beautiful Aquitaine beaches, visitors also have access to La Reserve’s private beach on the shores of Lake Biscarrosse – a safe environment for children and for water activity novices. A local sailing club, The Nautil Club, operate on the lake and share Siblu’s commitment to safety and enjoyment. The Nautil Club’s services and facilities are on offer alongside our own. You can hire, and get lessons in using, a variety of boats and boards: catamaran, dinghy, canoe, kayak, surfboards and stand-up paddle boards. There are both individual and group lessons available and they range from beginner and intermediate to advanced levels. It’s a perfect day out for a family, regardless of your ability. Please ask at reception for up-to-date information about any partnerships.

 

Discover the South West

With endless sandy beaches, Europe’s largest sand dune, world-renowned wines and 4 brilliant Siblu campsites, it's safe to say that Aquitaine makes an ideal holiday destination. From the chic city of Bordeaux to beautiful Bayonne in the Basque country, there is so much to explore! 

Messing About on the River

 

But don’t feel confined to the coasts. The rivers and waterways of France are a wonderful, and novel, way to explore the interior. Our holiday village Domaine de Dugny is situated near the River Loire, which meanders its way through the Loire Valley, a World Heritage site. The river is overlooked by the stately châteaux dotted along its banks. Many of these grand houses are surrounded by small towns and villages you can moor at and explore. 

Meanwhile Les Rives de Condrieu in the Rhone Alps is on the banks of the Rhone river, only 3 km from a water sports centre where you can enjoy exciting water sports such as wake-boarding and water-skiing.

 

Discover Our Riverside Regions

Ideally situated with Paris to the North and the sandy beaches of Vendée and the Loire Atlantique to the West, the tranquil Loire Valley is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway in the French countryside where the country's longest river makes its way through greenery and rolling hills dotted with fairy tale castles.

Named after the Rhone River and the Alps mountains, the Rhone Alps region in southeast France is an area of stunning natural beauty where forests, mountains and rivers meet in a balmy Mediterranean climate. It’s also home to France’s third-largest city, Lyon, famed for its history, architecture, food and wine.

Water Sports in the South of France 

 

La Carabasse sits on the Mediterranean in the middle of the lovely Languedoc region. Ask at reception to find out about any current partnerships with Playa Water Sports, based at the nearby Vias Plage beach. Through Playa Water Sports you can hire jet skis as well as canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (less well known than surfboards but great for a core workout!) – all under the supervision of a qualified instructor.

But, it's not just the sea, Les Sables du Midi holiday park is near the Canal du Midi, a World Heritage site. Built in the 17th century, it was widely considered one of the greatest engineering feats of the day, connecting the Mediterranean with the Atlantic. As part of its construction, the banks were shored up by the planting of thousands of trees making the canal a place of outstanding natural beauty.

 

Discover the South of France

Discover Languedoc! La Carabasse and Les Sables du Midi are perfect for a lively beachside atmosphere; Le Lac des Rêves offers a unique lakeside getaway, and Mar Estang is located between a Mediterranean beach and a nature reserve.

The Côte d’Azur, in the south-eastern corner of France’s Provence region, is a dreamy seaside holiday destination which offers a unique combination of beach resort, stunning natural landscapes and chic urban hotspots.

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!

France is more than twice as big as the UK but has the same amount of people, so there’s a lot of space to relax in. It’s filled with some of the most stunning countryside in the world, from mountains to coasts and everything else in-between.

You’ll probably find more than enough to do at your Siblu holiday park, but if you (or the kids) fancy a change of scene, a theme park is a great idea. Wherever you are in France, you’re never more than a quick hop to an out-of-this-world experience because France has some of the best theme parks in the world.

Discover our holiday parks with indoor or covered pools for those who need to dive in come rain or shine - handy if you're swimming to keep fit and don't want to overheat in the sun while you plough up and down.

When you’re on holiday with the family, everyone wants to have fun in the water – even the tiniest members in the group. So what better than a splash zone, where even non-swimmers can get as splashtastic as they like in a safe environment? The water’s shallow so you don’t even need armbands in our splashzones – just the courage to brave the sprays, spinners, streams and super slides!
