Alan Rogers Review

Marina and Christophe Lesouef will give you a warm welcome at their seaside campsite, a stone’s throw from the sea, typical harbour and the city centre, which is ideally placed for visiting Barfleur, Ste-Mère-Eglise and the Normandy landing beaches. There are 176 level pitches in total, 111 for touring and all with 10A electricity. Some are separated by hedges and there are many colourful flower beds, shrubs and trees, but little shade. A light and airy bar faces onto a terrace and swimming pool and there is also a state-of-the-art multisports court. The site is close to the Channel ferry terminal at Cherbourg.

Saint Vaast-la-Hougue is a busy fishing port with freshly caught fish on sale and a good choice of fish restaurants. Just a couple of hundred yards from the site, on a Saturday morning, you will find a bustling, traditional French market. A regular bus service from near the site entrance will take you to most of the surrounding areas including Barfleur and Cherbourg. For those wanting to take a leisurely stroll there is a pleasant walk along the raised sea wall to Fort de la Hougue which can be seen from the site. From Saint-Vaast quay, climb aboard a unique looking boat which literally rolls along the seabed to visit Tatihou Island. Whilst motorcaravans are welcome on grass pitches, there is a dedicated area within the site for approximately 16 to overnight on hardstandings, with access to all facilities at a reduced rate. Hire a 2 CV for half a day or for a full day at the campsite and enjoy driving along the winding roads of Manche. An exciting and original way to explore the hidden corners of Cotentin, Normandy!
