Alan Rogers Review
Camping de la Rouvre is set on the banks of the River Rouvre, 2 km. from its confluence with the River Orne. There are 17 grassy touring pitches (ten adjacent to the river), almost all with 16A electricity (long leads required) and separated by hedges. An open field accommodates a further 30 units. There are two tents and a wooden chalet for hire. The site is convenient for several ferry ports, with the famous tourist sites of Mont Saint-Michel, Caen, Bayeux, the Normandy landing beaches and the most beautiful treasures of Calvados on the doorstep. The Roches d’Oëtre is a walkers’ paradise, with eight walking routes starting from the site. Nearby is the 1,000-kilometre GR36 long-distance footpath running from the English Channel to Spain. The local gorges are a haven for wildlife, and the 150-metre high cliffs, steep rocks and deep gorges, has earned the area the nickname ‘The Switzerland of Normandy’.
