Feather Down is known as “Un lit au Pre” in France, literally ‘bed in a meadow’. This is the experience which our French farms promise. On a summer in France, from the coast of Normandy through Brittany to the Dordogne you will find the familiar Feather Down Tent with the added allure of French “joie de vivre”. In the Honesty Shop there are lots of home-made local products for sale, such as French cheese or typical French wine. What’s more, the French farmers and their families will be keen to share their stories about life on a French farm.
If you want to be really close to the beach in Normandy, go to Omaha Beach and visit La Ferme de la Folivraie. Merely an hour away from Caen Ferry Harbour (Ouistreham), you will find the small village of Louvières, ideally situated 1.5 km from the sea, bordering both Marais du Bessin national park and the protected coastal area.
La Ferme du Moncel in Normandy is a very picturesque French farm location, which is extra special as they keep dear on this farm which you can admire from up close. There are wonderful views from this farm. On a clear day it’s possible to see Puy de Sancy which is the highest point of Massif Central at 1886m.
One of our French farms in Brittany is Ferme de Penquellen Huella. This farm is based in the heart of the countryside, but just 30k from the coast of Brittany. An ideal base to start from, exploring the French countryside on your luxury camping summer in France!
