Why stay here ...

With its rural setting in the beautiful Forêt de Brotonne, this site has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and caters well to families during high season. The Commare family and their staff are welcoming and helpful, and provide a range of amenities including swimming and splash pools, a playground and outdoor fitness equipment. Some accessible facilities are provided and pitches are spacious and private thanks to the tall hedges which separate them.

Bikes can be hired to explore the Natural Park in which the site is located, and Rouen is a 40-minute drive. Best known for its Gothic cathedral and picturesque streets with their half-timbered houses, it is a lovely place to spend the day. Just outside the historic village of Jumièges, there's an ancient abbey and some good shops and restaurants to stop at.

Lovely campsite

La Forêt Jumièges
We went to this campsite recently which was low season for France. Pitches were a good size and hedged on 3 sides so nice and private. Lovely bird song as the campsite is in a wood. Friendly and helpful campsite staff. Croissants and baguettes could be ordered fresh every day. Local restaurants in Jumieges only a short walk away. Nice cycle route close by along the Sienne. Also good for walking routes nearby. Bus can be caught from nearby village (Yainville) to Rouen but you have to buy tickets on line. Rouen a great place to visit

Pleasant site in good location

La Forêt Jumièges
We arrived from the south so used the bridge which added 25mins to journey time. Some confusion about use of the bac to cross the Seine. 3.5 tons limit, but also a problem with the overhang behind the back wheel. We loved using them as foot passengers though and it made exploring the area more of an adventure with our dog. Not a great deal in Jumieges, apart from the magnificent abbey which we were not allowed to visit with our dog. Tourist Info was useful once we worked out that we'd been trying the wrong door! Duclair, where we visited the vet for our return, was an interesting small town and a visit to Caudibec en Caux was worth a trip with its enormous gothic church. Pleasant family run site with delicious daily bread delivered.

Fantastic La Foret

La Forêt Jumièges
Lovely site situated in the Normandy countryside with the River Seine close by. Warm welcome and information provided on arrival. Got to choose our own pitch, all were a nice size with hedges and water points close by. Toilet block modern & clean with toilet paper. No motorhome point so filled up with water on pitch. Stayed 3 nights and visited Rouen on the bus, timetable in reception. Also nice walks around, were given a walking map from reception but there is tourist information available in the town centre. Nice warm swimming pool but closed for lunch! Quiet later in the evening as gate closed at 1030pm and owners sent children back to their pitches.

A struggle to get here as the ferry was signed as up to 3.5 tonnes (fine for us) but didn't state until we got to the point of embarking that there was a 3m height restriction. Once we arrived we were delighted - a site worthy of the caravan club. A warm welcome (with a choice of French or English) by our host. The pitch was good with its own water supply and hedges just tall enough to be private without blocking the light or the view. Shower facilities were clean, modern and spacious. Plenty of room to sunbathe round the pool too. We only stayed one night but with plenty of access to local towns, the forest, the river or Rouen we wish we'd been here longer.

Great Location

La Forêt Jumièges
We loved this site. Fabulous location, tucked in amongst the twists and turns of The Seine and surrounded by beautiful forests. The site was clean, the owners friendly, the facilities more than adequate. We were on pitch A06 which was near the edge of the site - less traffic, both human and vehicle. These pitches had plenty of shade which we like. Out and about - there is a Carrefour in La Trait, bars and restaurants in Jumièges and Duclair. We enjoyed driving around in the early evenings and using the free ferry crossings to circle around the river.
