Our Domaine de Litteau holiday parc in Calvados, Normandy, has been given the green light for extensive improvements following the award of €1,5million from regional development councils in France.
The money will accelerate an ambitious development plan for the parc, which will include a five-fold increase in holiday home pitches, to more than 500.
We are planning to improve Domaine de Litteau’s facilities to the highest standard of four-stars and to accommodate up to 2,000 people, making the parc an important centre for tourism in the region of Calvados.
New developments will include a covered swimming complex, tennis courts, sauna and steam room, a multi-sports pitch and gym.
Domaine de Litteau will become one of France’s most environmentally friendly holiday parcs, with rigorous energy conservation and tree management plans. We have already completed a reed-bed sewage treatment pond to naturally purify waste from the parc.
We have invested heavily since acquiring Domaine de Litteau in 2007, with upgrades to facilities including a semi-permanent cover for the swimming pool, a new aquatic area for toddlers, developments to the bar, grocery store and takeaway, and the creation of 75 new mobile home pitches.
Around 100 families, approx 40% from the UK, have already bought their own holiday homes at Domaine de Litteau, tempted by the beauty of the surrounding region and proximity to the ferry port at Caen.
Domaine de Litteau general manager Jef Soucy says that ultimately, the equivalent of 50 new full time jobs will be created following this investment, with 17 new jobs already introduced since siblu took over the parc.
