Experience the beauty of the countryside and the fun of camping on a real farm with Feather Down’s family friendly glamping holidays. Our Normandy farm lets families spend quality time together in one of the most beautiful parts of France. Enjoy the warm weather while meeting newborn lambs and other friendly farm inhabitants. Beyond the farm, amazing cultural sights await, such as the world famous Bayeux tapestry.
Wake up after a rejuvenating night’s sleep in your canvas home, and be greeted by the sound of birdsong and the glorious scent of flowers. A Feather Down family holiday in Normandy offers plenty of delights to fill spring days. Stroll around the countryside or head down to the iconic Mont Saint Michel island for a day trip.
Summertime is the ideal time for one of our family holidays. This region of France is home to some amazing sandy beaches. The whole family can swim, sunbathe, or try out surfing and other water sports. The beaches along the coast are important landmarks too, as they are the site of heroic allied landings in the 1940s. Visit Omaha beach and experience the region’s history. There’s something for everyone on a Normandy glamping holiday.
The bay walk with Sylvie was a highlight- the mud, quicksand, views, rivers, and Sylvie kept a 6 and 8 yr old entertained for the whole walk and the 3 yr old for most of it! Local beaches at Genet, st Jean de Thomas also lovely.
Relax and forget the time.
Bring a little camping stove for a quick cup of tea/coffee instead of heating up the stove every time.
Carolles beach; le Village Enchante; Mon St-Michel, obviously!
Bay trip with sylvie is a must.
The Grande Aquarium just outside Saint-Malo is definitely worth a visit with children.
Recommend walking from Genets to the Ecology museum in St Leopold along the pilgrims trail. Fantastic museum not too expensive and not in any of our guide books. The guided walk by Sylvie to mont St Michel was the absolute highlight of our France holiday. The bikes on the farm are in rough shape, and a bit dear to rent. Recommend people bring their own bikes rather than renting from the farm if they plan to do any riding as the terrain is hilly.
Granville, our girls really enjoyed the christian dior museum,the zoo near Granville, St. Malo lovely and the aquarium good
