Saint-Lô, the ideal holiday destination!
Almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, Saint-Lô is, like many towns in Normandy, forever connected to this seminal moment in modern history. It would, however, be a shame to stop at that because the town has a lot to offer for families or couples on holiday: hiking, heritage and good food are all on the agenda. So don’t waste any more time and set off to discover the hidden gems of the Manche!
Some exciting adventures await in Normandy and you’ll need a holiday home to match the experience! To make sure your Normandy holiday is a resounding success, opt for our Sandaya campsites and their services and amenities designed just for you: water park, free children’s clubs, the sea and beaches nearby and, of course, the unmissable daytime and evening entertainment! Whatever your programme, you’re sure of a happy holiday with Sandaya!
And don’t miss…
Visit Saint-Lô with the family
Ride around the Manche department and Normandy on a bicycle for a family activity that will appeal to campers big and small! Mount your trusty two-wheeler and pedal along at your own pace through the green meadows of Normandy or along the region’s coast. And it couldn’t be easier as the whole area is criss-crossed with cycle paths. So hop on your bikes and off you go!
If your children are keen on horse-riding, the “capital of the horse” is just perfect for them. From a horse ride to a tour of the National Stud, it will be horses, horses, horses, from morning to night – much to the delight of your young riders!
Visit Saint-Lô as a couple
How about some romance in the Manche? Garden lovers – or just lovers! – if you want to take some time out in a peaceful green haven, we recommend a trip to one of the pretty gardens around Saint-Lô. The Jardin d’Elle and its multi-coloured floral displays are like something out of a fairy tale, and the ideal spot to declare (or reaffirm!) your undying devotion!
If you’re keen on outdoor sports, then head for the Vire valley. Choose your vessel – a canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard then select your route (4, 6 or 12 km) and cast off on the waters of the River Vire. Back on dry land, pull on your walking boots and set off on a hike in the heart of the Manche.
