Culture & Activities

There is so much to visit in the huge region of the south of France. Definitely visit Carcassonne castle if you are in the south Languedoc area, and go to Montpellier and Nimes if you are in north Languedoc, and check out Nice, Cannes and St Tropez if you are on the Côte d'Azur. You'll find lots of information on places to visit at the Siblu campsite reception, and our team will be willing to recommend the best attractions in the south of France.
South of France Beaches & Sports
The long sandy beaches along the Languedoc coastline provides the perfect environment for paddling, swimming, sandcastle building or beach sports.For something more adventurous, try kite surfing or sand yachting. The beaches along the Côte d'Azur are a mix of sand and pebble, Nice and Cannes being famous for their pretty pebbly beaches and Frejus offering long stretches of sand.
Days out in the South of France
Famously featured in the Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves film, this impressive castle in the south of France in Carcassone is a great place to visit. The kids will love exploring the castle walls and pretending to fire arrows from the top of the turrets!
The small town of St Tropez in the south of France is an absolute delight. The contrast between the beautiful old buildings in the old town to the glitzy yachts in the harbour is a fascinating sight. It's worth taking a boat from Nice or other towns along the coast to save the long drive round if you are staying at our campsite near Nice, Le Montourey.
The nicest thing about Nice is that you can spend the day on the beach and then walk up into the town for food, drinks and ice-cream. The Mediterranean Sea is a beautiful shade of marine blue, the sunshine hours are great, and everywhere you look is pretty as a picture!
The South of France - the Languedoc
The Languedoc covers the coastal area of the south of France from Perpignan (close to the Spanish border) up to Montpellier, and inland to Nimes and the Massif Central (inland mountain area). It's an area in southern France known for its beautiful beaches, hot sunny weather, and rich history. Being on the Mediterranean Sea, it's popular from visitors from the UK and all over Europe, but perhaps quieter and a little less well known than it's glizty neighbour, the Côte d'Azur. The region is home to a number of great places to visit, including the medieval city of Carcassonne, the Roman ruins of Nimes, and the Cathar castles of the Pyrenees Mountains.
The South of France - the Cote d'Azur
When most people think of the Mediterranean and the Côte d'Azur, they think of the super fashionable towns of Nice, Cannes and St Tropez. These towns are definitely worth a visit, but don't forget the other pretty seaside resorts an also the area inland, which rises up steeply and famous for small towns like Grasse, where perfume is made. The region is also home to a number of historical sites, such as the Roman ruins of Fréjus and the medieval village of Èze.
