Favourite festivals in France

Posted on 22 July 2011 by Dan Johnson

Siblu’s holiday villages in Charente Maritime have been supporters of Un Violon sur le Sable, a classical music festival that takes place on the beach at Royan, for several years.

Our partnership has even included rehearsal sessions for performers at Les Charmettes – culminating in a free show from French superstar Christophe Mae performing hits backed by a full orchestra.

This year we asked our holiday home Owners and holidaymakers to star in a film celebrating our link. After three days of filming, here is siblu’s video for Un Violon sur le Sable.

The festival itself takes place over three evenings at the end of July. It’s free to attend and attracts about 150,000 people each year, so getting the best spots is a skill in itself.

We love big outdoor events like Un Violon sur le Sable – which ones can you recommend?
