Take the ferry from Rosslare to Cherbourg next summer for a wonderful family holiday. This tranquil, eco-friendly park in the grounds of a château offers authentic French charm.

This small, tranquil parc doesn’t just have a friendly atmosphere; it’s friendly to the environment too and has won a host of awards for its green behaviour.

On parc at Château La Forêt you’ll enjoy modern facilities alongside an authentic French atmosphere, with the lovely old village of Saint-Julien-des-Landes nearby. Spend the afternoon relaxing on your shaded pitch, try a spot of tennis or have a go windsurfing or dinghy sailing on the lake nearby. Neighbouring Le Grand Défi leisure park is home to an incredible treetop adventure course, which is guaranteed to keep the kids occupied for hours (charges apply).
