Why stay here ...

This small, quiet site on the edge of a natural park is ideal for nature lovers and those looking for a relaxing escape. You can walk around, or fish on, the picturesque lakes that back onto the site. Younger families are also catered for with a lovely pool and playground.

Tasty fresh bread and pastries can be ordered for the following day, and collected at reception, while a small shop sells the essentials. The staff are happy to provide tourist information and help guests book attractions or transport.

There are many activities within walking distance including foot and cycle paths that pass the site. Water sports can also be tried on the lakes, and local Calvados distilleries and cheese farms offer tours and tastings. Those venturing further afield will find medieval Rouen and the pretty harbour of Honfleur within easy reach.

Interesting stay

Risle-Seine les Etangs
Nice site. Lovely lake side position with associated direct lake side access to lovely walks. About 2 miles to town is walkable along a quiet road or via the unlite lakes. Our fully serviced pitch was a reasonable size. Typical French reception with associated friendliness and helpfulness that one would expect to encounter from a French site. (Read how you wish). Nice pool when open. Sadly, this isn't the first "shoulder shrugging" I've encountered in France, so coupled with the service Britanny ferries offer,(again, read how you wish) I'll be doing my best to avoid France in future 😢 Wales (20mph) here I come☹️

Risle-Seine les Etangs
On paper this site looks nice but the actual reality is disappointing. I had rang the site to see if we could book in early due to Ferry times, I was told ok. On arrival we got there at the time I stated. The gent who I reported to looked at his watch and shrugged his shoulders I told him we had rang and was told ok. He ushered me out the office locked up and shot off. He got a woman to see me and her attitude was it much better so I explained again. She consulted her chart and after a bit said number 44. It was a fully serviced site but it was well used with very little grass. The pictures show well trimmed hedges and lovely grass when the reality is far different. The only other member of staff I saw during our stay was very aloof and abrupt. The toilet cleaning was noticable in it’s lack. Same bits of dirt and rubbish not touched for some days.The site is in a good location for visiting the various areas of historic interest I.e. the Normandy beaches and other WW2 sites. The town of Pont Audermer nearby is lovely with plenty of shops and hyper markets. The lakes around the site are lovely and make for good walks. Nice wine shops nearby and the staff really helpful. Been to France a number of times and stayed at a number of sites, this one was by far the poorest. Jim Gedney Hill

Clean and tidy but rude staff member

Risle-Seine les Etangs
My family and I stayed here for one night on the way to Calais for the trip home to the UK. Overall the campsite was nice enough. It had good facilities including a pool (which we did not use but looked lovely), laundry room, shower blocks, basic play area bar and a little shop. Everything was clean and tidy. The area surrounding was ok. There was a pretty lake next to the location. Wi-fi was poor, almost non-existent but we did not worry about that. The only thing that really let the campsite down was one of the younger receptionist's attitude. I was paying for a bill after using their bar; but because I am English and she was French there was an obvious language barrier between us. I tried to communicate with her but she was impatient and short with me. Her tone of voice was abrupt and callous to the point of shouting at me. It felt like she she could not be bothered to serve me. On arrival to the site, she was also bad mannered with my husband as he did not have any cash to pay for tourist tax. We went out especially to get some for her. I was shocked and honestly quite upset by how she behaved. She might have been having a bad day but surely that is not an excuse to scare people away from staying there (which she did). Also working in the travel industry, you would expect staff to be of calm disposition, as well as courteous, polite and helpful and to the best of their knowledge and ability. She possessed none of these qualities. Fortunately we are unlikely to ever go back there again.

Relaxing Risle-Seine les Etangs

Risle-Seine les Etangs
Lovely site, well set out with a small area at the back of the site with chickens (which roam around the site and visit your pitch) sheep and goats and a stream running through. Situated next to the lakes and an easy walk into Pont Audemer. Hedged pitches with tap and electric and a nice size. Two toilet blocks and a nice pool area. Staff were pleasant enough but not overly welcoming and did not receive any site info but there are site maps with information on. There was some tourist info in the reception which was helpful with local walks. We walked around the lakes one afternoon which took about an hour to go around the larger one, there are several lakes. Pont Audemer was very pretty with lots of canals and timbered houses and we picked up a map and town walk in the town tourist information office, we also walked along the riverside from the town for quite a way as there was a good walking path. We next moved onto Honfleur where we stayed overnight in the aire as there was a lot to see and several walks around the town.

First visit

Risle-Seine les Etangs
We stayed here as a couple for 5 nights at the beginning of July. Our two previous campsites had been '5 stars' and this one was '3 stars' so not unsurprisingly we noticed the difference. It was smaller with fewer facilities which were not quite so luxurious but still were clean and perfectly adequate. The site was easy to find and close to the motorway-the downside to this was that you could hear the traffic but only in the distance. We were on a service pitch which was a nice size and had easy access to water and hook up. The road to the site does have a large derelict factory on it but the site itself has direct access to the lakes that are beside it and there are pleasant walks you can take by them. The nearby Pont Audemer is a sizable town with a mix of old and new. The old is interesting and good to explore and the new has good facilities like supermarkets and filling stations. We found the site a good location for touring the area and visited Le Bec-Hellouin (beau village), Honfleur, Deauville and although a bit further afield Monets gardens and house at Giverny.
