We have chosen a handful of parcs from our programme that we believe offer a wealth of culture in the surrounding areas. While staying at these parcs you could explore the local traditions, historical highlights, festivals and gastronomic specialities of each region.
Château des Ormes is located in the countryside of Ile et Vilaine, providing an opportunity to explore nearby châteaux gardens, half-timbered medieval towns such as Dinan and St. Malo and the magnificent Mont St. Michel, the WWII cemeteries and the stunning coastline.
Brittany's magnificent fishing villages and wonderful harbours will soon have you feeling relaxed. A visit to Brest will give you the opportunity to see one of the finest harbours in Europe and also boasts a spectacular 13th century castle.
Visit the fishing festival in Binic or see some of the open-air evening shows in Rennes, during its 'Tombée de la Nuit' festival.
Les Grottes de Roffy is perfect for discovering the Dordogne region, a treasure-trove of prehistoric caves and sites dating from 450,000 to 10,000 BC.
Its architecture, including Gallo-Roman, Romanesque and Renaissance, illustrate how all periods have left their mark on this historic centre. Cèpe mushrooms, Perigord Cabécou (goat's cheese), crayfish and truffled foie-gras are some of the gastronomic specialities of this region.
On the delightful estate surrounding Le Parc de Fierbois, you will come across the charming lake which sets an impressive scene. You can also hire canoes and pedalos in high season, or you may prefer to simply enjoy a relaxing stroll around it, taking in the sights and sounds of this naturally beautiful area.
Straying from the resort itself, you will find many attractions within walking and driving distance. Days out from the parc could consist of visiting any number of nearby châteaux, which will take your breath away. If you wish to sample the wine tasting delights of this spectacular region of France, then you will find the vineyards at Vouvray and Chinon most appealing. For the shopaholics, you can visit the nearby town of Tours, which has exceptional shopping areas and some amazing sights which must be seen, should you venture here.
If you are visiting in June, then you could visit the Le Mans 24 hour motorcycle race, which takes place around the 18th and 19th. Should you prefer something of a slower pace, you can visit the Loire Valley Festival, which runs a little earlier in June at Amboise. This takes place between the 7th – 13th June.
The International Garden Festival also runs right through from the end of April to mid-October in the grounds of the delightful Chaumont-sur-Loire Château, which also presents some excellent photographic opportunities.
Surrounded by the delightful panorama of the Tuscan hills, Norcenni Girasole Club is set on a steep terrace with high-level pitches, affording remarkable views over the heart of the Chianti region. This really is the perfect location for a holiday in Tuscany.
Straying from the parc, nearby you have the delightful old cities of Florence and Siena, which are well worth the visit. If you are prepared to travel just a little further then why not visit Pisa with its leaning tower? From time to time, the site owners run excursions, so you can enjoy everything that Tuscany has to offer.
