This summer, history buffs will be able to enjoy a multitude of adventures as they journey back through the ages. Come and tread in the footsteps of history at some of its most important sites: caves, churches, castles and châteaux... there’s no shortage of fascinating remains to explore. This year, turn your holiday into an epic voyage!
Begin where it all began, in the Dordogne and the historic sites of the Périgord Noir, the cradle of civilisation. The famous Lascaux cave, the “Sistine Chapel of cave art”, is perhaps the best example! Then, for a change of period without having to change place, set off to conquer the Château de Castelnaud, right on the doorstep of your campsite, and relive the days when knights were bold!
The kids prefer playing princes and princesses? Then make it a stay in the Loire Valley and soak up the wonders of the Renaissance! Let the famous Loire châteaux, with the amazing château de Chambord at the top of your list, recount their history in a truly fairytale setting.
Finally, those dreaming of a seaside holiday with plenty of history will find exactly what they’re looking for at our campsites near the English Channel. The perfect opportunity to explore the D-Day landing beaches and visit the many museums along the Normandy coastline.
