Here are three ideas for great May holidays with siblu, with prices from just £305 for the family, including Dover to Calais ferries.
Explore the Vendée with a GPS
Le Bois Masson in the Vendée is hiring out global positioning satellite (GPS) systems and audio tours as an exciting way for families to explore the nearby Pays de Monts forest and salt marches. The guides help children to find and identify animal tracks and can be hired for as little as €9 for the full day. A seven-night holiday starts from just £479 from 24 May and includes a £70 saving on bookings made before 31 March. Dover to Calais return ferries are included.
Pony school in Calvados
Domaine de Litteau in Calvados, Normandy, is launching a pony school for families. Children can book rides through the Cerisy Forest or take part in half-day horse-care lessons. Prices start from just €12 for supervised rides and €35 for the course, which is run by local instructors. A seven-night family stay with Dover to Calais ferries starts from just £305, departing 12 May, including a £32 saving on breaks booked before 31 March.
Science and nature at the 3D movies
Futuroscope, a giant theme parc near to Poitiers, is packed with immersive cinemas that show awe-inspiring films which make science and nature exciting. New in 2009 are ‘Cosmic Collisions’, shown on a dome-shaped cinema screen where images of the crashes shaping our universe appear all around the viewer, and Fly Me To The Moon, a giant 3D film about three flies who space-hop on to the legendary Apollo 11 moon flight.
Futuroscope is a great day-trip for families staying at Les Charmettes in Charente Maritime, where seven-night breaks start from just £329, departing 23 May, and including a £115 saving for bookings made before 31 March. Dover to Calais ferries are included.
