We have already used Siblu in summers gone by and have always been very pleased with the result.
So there was never any doubt that we would enjoy the holiday we recently took in Normandy at Siblu’s Domaine de Litteau. These sites have always proven to be clean, relaxed affairs in gorgeous spots throughout France, and Domaine de Litteau did not disappoint. The area is fantastic with forests to explore and beautiful beaches that are great for a day out but which also carry the historical weight of 1944. The site rests about 40 minutes from these beaches and less time than that to the historical city of Bayeaux. Add to this a whole swathe of picturesque little towns within driving distance and you’ll see that it’s the perfect base to explore the north of France.

Good Site for Young FamiliesUnlike other sites, there were few takeaway shops or evening facilities. In truth there were two short aisles of essential
A Safe Place For Children to PlayThe homes were positioned in small cul-de-sacs along the small track that wound itself around the site, and this meant that we were able to allow our two children to play outside with little fear of them getting lost or wandering far. Harry does think he’s Batman so we had to keep an eye out in case he suspected that Mr. Freeze was approaching but the lay-out of the site meant that this was easily done. Luckily Caitlin, at 2, considers herself eminently more mature than Harry and so she served as an extra pair of eyes. A single track wound around the site and cars travelling on this were child-aware
Brilliant Swimming PoolIn the absence of shops the heart of the site was undoubtedly the pool. This was fantastic. Water features that entertained the kids -jets, occasional Jacuzzi bubbles and a small waterfall feature- an enclosed shallow end for babies and small toddlers, a deeper pool large enough to swim in for adults but great for kids and a slide that Harry, our 4 year old, thought was the best thing in the whole holiday, if not his life to date! In the pictures we took it does look unnaturally empty. This is because they were taken early on in the day and the pool did get more crowded. But luckily this was never ‘Primark-on-a-Saturday-afternoon’ crowded, more ‘WH Smith-on-a-Tuesday-morning’ crowded.
Huge CaravanThe holiday home itself was terrific, easily the best we’ve ever seen or been in. Two bedrooms (one with bunk-beds) two shower rooms, a toilet and a double that, rather wonderfully, had a small dressing room attached. The kitchen was large and had everything we would need for the week, including a decent-sized fridge freezer. The decking outside which housed a table and chairs effectively added a further dining room as we had great weather, but if the nights were colder you could just as easily eat inside without feeling too squeezed.
Excellent Value Family HolidayAll of this luxury wasn’t cheap and with linen and towels thrown in it came in at just under £950. Although this isn’t loose change we did feel that it was a decent price for a family of four and was certainly competitive with similar sites. Also, travel on the Portsmouth-Caen ferry took the pressure off us in terms of a lengthy drive. We live in Brighton and drove one hour to Portsmouth and then for about 40 minutes on the other side of the channel, all in all a very comfortable journey which ensured that we arrived refreshed.
