Alan Rogers Review

Callassande is a popular family run site 900 metres from a sandy beach and welcomes families with teenagers. The 500 grassy pitches include 340 for tourers; half are 89 sq.m. with electricity (10A) and TV point, the other half are slightly larger and also have water and drainage. The indoor heated pool (charged) is fun for everyone with a large chute, a jacuzzi, a special paddling area and an opening roof for sunny days. There is a children’s play area adjacent to the pool with a pirate ship, a new climbing dome and trampolines. Parents of young children should be aware of the canals that run around the edge of the site.

An entertainment team organises a wide range of activities in peak season, including daily children’s clubs for different age groups. Callassande’s restaurant, Horeca, is an appealing focal point and incorporates an attractive bar area. Off site, there are many excellent cycle tracks. Den Helder remains an important naval base and is home to the tallest cast iron lighthouse in Europe. To the south, Alkmaar is an important city, best known perhaps for its excellent cheese market, which dates back to 1593.
