Why stay here ...

This laid-back site, set in the wooded grounds of a former hunting lodge, offers a peaceful and relaxing stay for young families and couples. Pitches are set in the old orchard and around the unfenced fishing lake, in which guests can fish for free (but fish must go back).

The owners are keen musicians and conduct music nights, talks and open mic events in the château for guests. Tours to a cider farm and a local distillery are organised in high season, as well as pony rides for children.

Guests will need a car to get to many of the main attractions nearby, which include Honfleur and the D-Day beaches. Pont l’Évêque has a rich history and some pretty houses and shops to discover, while to the south, nearby Lisieux has a magnificent cathedral and an interesting art and history museum.

Rustic France at it’s best

A lovely site set around an old Château in the woods located in the green Calvados countryside. If you are looking for well marked pitches, manicured hedges and neatly mown grass then this site is not for you. We loved it’s unkempt appearance and would describe it as traditionally French rustic style. We loved it. The pitches are set randomly (but marked out individually) in the grounds of the Château including the orchard as well as around a small lake. There is a lovely open air swimming pool which we didn’t use but it seemed popular with adults and children alike. The outbuildings have been put to good use with reception and a well stocked small shop in one, cafe and one of three toilet blocks in another with a lovely restaurant occupying the third. The Château itself houses a cosy bar on the ground floor. There is plenty to do locally with the old city of Pont Eveque close by as is the cathedral city of Lisieux. Further afield the lovely coastal towns of Honfleur and Deauville are little over 30 minutes drive away with lovely sea fronts and beaches. Further afield the D Day landing beaches can be reached in no more than an hours drive. WiFi is only available on the green in front of the cafe so everyone tends to congregate in that area whether the cafe, bar or shop is open. This is a family run site, now into the 5th generation and they are deeply passionate about the environment and do everything within the site to minimise waste and promote recycling and reuse as well as energy and water reduction. They should be applauded for their commitment to this cause. We shall be back.

What a lovely place to stay

Spent 5 nights here a week ago. 2 adults pitched overlooking the lake - very nice! Great history with a lovely chateau on site. Good electric, decent sized pitches, lots of direct sun or shade from trees so whatever you like in that department! Fishing and boating on the lake if that's your thing too. Nice level pitches with only a little adjustment required. Wash/toilet facilities top notch. Very French being shared (not boys/girls) but not awkward (for us easily embarrassed British), showers very big and private, loos very clean and nice to use, washing up areas equally so. And modern so you actually want to use them. Location - a bit of travelling to the areas attractions is required but bearing in mind the peaceful location this for us was not a problem. We went to the D Day beaches etc during our visit and we were left in awe by the stuff we saw and did. If your holiday requirements are a quiet quality campsite with helpful English speaking staff and some interesting history then you will not be disappointed. Its not for the nightclub lovers. But that in our opinion makes it all the better!!!

Best site ever

The upgraded toilet facilities have made this site better than ever. The music nights are excellent and the restaurant cannot be faulted. The welcome is of the very best, nothing is too much trouble for the staff who go out of their way to assist.

Revisited after some years

We visited this site several times a start point ot a holiday when our family was young. They have now flown so a bit of a nostalgia trip. And- much as it was really. One toilet block still being refurbished,other could have been cleaner compared to some later used. Bar seemed a little disorganised compared to what it was. Nice walks- but a bit wet from recent heavy rain. That's Normandy! Pick you site- no problem if you use common sense- plenty of big flat pitches. Good start point to get into the holiday spirit Easy access to Lisieux or Pont L'eveque

Lovely site

First time taking 3 year old on a camping trip abroad to include a sea crossing. Close to port so easy to reach before boredom set in. Set in lovely countryside with beautiful wood and lake as part of the site. Pitches available on lake edge and beautifully peaceful. The 2 service blocks were very clean but a little tired and the 3rd block was closed for refurbishment - nearly finished and looked good. 2 lovely play areas for children both which could be viewed while sitting by restaurant or cafe enjoying a drink & meal or accessing the wifi. Pool lovely and clean with the toddler pool very safely away from the main pool. The pens of chickens, rabbits & guinea pigs a great hit for the children. Staff very friendly and helpful. Shop limited but adequate. Very close by was one of the best zoos you could go to. No public transport to go anywhere, as appears to be normal in France. Will be going back next year.
