Why stay here ...

Located between Bayeux and Caen and close proximity to Arromanches (Mulberry Harbour),  this charming site is an ideal base from which to explore Normandy. Relaxing in low season, it has a rural feel, and even though it gets busier in high season, the calm ambiance is largely retained.

The site has a heated pool and provides family entertainment during the summer. There is also a well-stocked shop which provides all the essentials for a shorter stay.

The D-Day beaches are the primary draw to the area, the closest of which are Juno and Gold Beaches. Bayeux is a short drive and home to an imposing cathedral, WWII memorial museum and, of course, the famous tapestry. Visitors can also enjoy the region’s Calvados on the Route du Cidre.

Late Aug 2019 visit

Large easy access pitches, neighbours offered to help manoeuvre van into best position as not so strictly regulated as many UK sites. Very friendly and helpful staff on arrival and I quote “If you don’t like your pitch, just come and tell us and you can have another". Good English spoken if it helps you. Very well kept site and well maintained. Very modern shower and toilets and mixed male and female which is rather common in France Fresh water near, I never did find the grey waste area. Swimming pool was ok although we didn’t use it. The pond bit was a bit sad with dead water and dead fish. Maybe there was some issue. Restaurant food and prices were ok. The waitress worked very hard while the lazy barman looked on and chatted instead of helping her Shop was a bit pricy but convenient for breakfast things or when you arrive. Good playground for kids Wifi free but slow same as every other French site we have experienced. Mostly brits and Dutch during our visit, not many french. Eu 3 pin plug electric reversed polarity. Very good base for Bayeux and Normandy battlefield tour. We were there for the last few days that it was open at the end of August We would certainly stay again

A perfect location for Normandy beaches

We stayed at this camp site in August 2017 for 4 nights. A lovely camp site situated within grounds of a chateau, with outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, large field for ball games, shop, takeaway & restaurant. Fresh bread & croissants available each morning. Toilet/shower block could have been maintained a little better, but they adequately served their purpose without major issue. If you want a more peaceful pitch, ask for one down the long driveway away from chateau, although noise levels fell by 10pm. Great location for Bayeaux and all Normandy beach landings, WW2 museums & attractions. You need to use the car/motorhome each day as no public transport nearby. We would definitely recommend this site for anyone wanting to explore Normandy beaches & WW2 sites!

Excellent for a stop over or to visit the area.

This was our second visit to this campsite and we love it. The staff are very helpful and the facilities are clean. It is excellent for the ferry at Caen and is a good base to visit the Normandy beaches and both Caen and Bayeaux. All the pitches seem to be a reasonable size. It would always be our first choice if we are in the area again.

Lovely site with good location

Recently visited site stayed for a week and found it to be a good location to explore the area. Great for Bayeaux and Normandy landing beaches. We found setting of the site to be relaxing [but we visited before the high season]and staff on site very helpful and friendly. Really enjoyed our visit and would return in the future.

Good loaction

We stopped for 2 nights and found this site to be an excellent location for visiting Caen, Bayaux and the Normandy landing beaches. Lovely setting with helpful staff and good facilities (Shop, pool, tennis court, restaurant, New wash-block, etc). Pitches a bit on the small side and quite busy.
