Caravan sites & campsites in Normandy
With 350 miles of coastline, including the white cliffs at Etretat and the famous D-Day beaches, Normandy is an ideal destination for those looking for a unique break away. Convenient to get to, Normandy is perfect for a short stay or as a base for thoroughly discovering this enchanting region.
Normandy boasts picturesque villages, beautiful countryside, cathedral cities like Rouen and of course some of the most famous historical sites in Europe.
Visits to the D-Day landing beaches are a must, as is a day trip to the Benedictine abbey of Mont St Michel, perched on top of a 160ft granite rock.
A visit to the town of Bayeux to see the beautiful Bayeux tapestry depicting the 1066 conquest of England is also highly recommended.

How do I book an overseas site?
Overseas campsite bookings can easily be made on the Club website and "combined deals" are common when you book a campsite at the same time as your ferry crossing. Booking online means you save the £15 Contact Centre booking fee.
Does the Club take deposits for overseas bookings?
Yes, deposits for overseas bookings are calculated at 20% for a site and 25% for a ferry (unless it is a non-refundable ferry/Eurotunnel in which case full payment is due at time of booking). The final balance is due 10 weeks prior to travel.
Is the standard of overseas sites similar to that of the UK?
European campsites are star-rated by their own local authorities and can have different standards and regulations to the UK. However, the Club's travel team handpick and inspect our campsites so that members can be sure of a high standard.
