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.

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.

Very pleaseant stop over

La Forêt Jumièges
We stayed here for one night on route back from Benodet to Calais and were very impressed and wished we could have stayed longer. The warden was very welcoming and clear and precise with the facilities and site rules. The pitch we were allocated (75) was huge compared to other sites in France and was private with tall hedges all around. The facilities were spotlessly clean and it was clear all areas of the site were regularly inspected and maintained. The play area is very good and there is a pool table and TV room for older children. Would definitely book here again.

Stopover Site at end of our holiday

La Forêt Jumièges
We were made very welcome by the efficient Lady site owner. We approached site from the west watching carefully to avoid the ferry. We left motorway at junction 25. You pass the ferry sign on your way so it is easy to avoid. Road route adds about 30 mins to journey and is easy to find. You cross over a large bridge and head down the other side of river. I would reccomend doing supermarket shopping at one of the larger villages on route as Jumieges is very small. The site is fine with modern toilet block and large shaded pitches. There is an older block which has basic toilets and dish washing etc. Good area for cycling. The abbey at Jumieges is well worth a visit and not too expensive as well as the building there are nice grounds to walk round. The village is pretty with few bars and a restaurant. Site has basic bar and small shop. We didnt use the swimming pool. Returning to the motorway heading East resulted in us using some narrow but safe roads. A good site close to the river in a scenic part of France. Andy .
