Alan Rogers Review

The staff at this beautiful campsite offer a warm welcome to visitors. Situated on the edge of the little town of Pontorson, 9 km. from Mont Saint-Michel, the site has 152 pitches, including 118 for touring units. Most have 16A electricity and 24 really large pitches, some of which have water and drainage. Excellent private sanitary facilities are also available on 12 luxury pitches. The comfortable reception area incorporates a pleasant bar where breakfast is served. This opens onto the swimming pool terrace. The site is attractively laid out and includes a Japanese garden. Haliotis (which takes its name from a large shell) is next to the River Couesnon, and it is possible to walk, cycle and canoe along the river to Mont Saint-Michel, though an auberge at half-distance could provide a welcome break!

A good bus service is available from close to the site entrance to all major towns in the area. Welcoming families and couples, the site amenities include good sports facilities, a new playgound amd a mini-farm where children can see goats, ponies and rabbits.
