Alan Rogers Review

In the countryside, close to a pleasant little village, Camping la Reine Mathilde is within easy reach of the historic town of Bayeux, the D-Day beaches and the interesting fishing port of Port-en-Bessin. The site is in the grounds of a large stone farmhouse. The 76 grassy touring pitches are mainly of a good size and equipped with electrical connections (6A). There are some 49 chalets and mobile homes, with 14 available to rent. Walkers and cyclists are well provided for in the area, with dedicated cycle routes into and around Bayeux. Port-en-Bessin has shops, bars and restaurants and the Omaha Beach Golf Course.

Besides the Bayeux Tapestry and the landing beaches, there is a great deal to see in the area. The excellent museums at Arromanches and Caen and the large American cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer recall the momentous events of 1944. Etréham is almost halfway between the western-most point of the landings at Sainte-Mère-Eglise and the eastern end at Ouistreham, so this is an ideal base for anyone wishing to visit all the Plages de Débarquemet. Needless to say, these same sandy beaches now provide numerous opportunities for holidaymakers to relax and enjoy themselves. Cider and Calvados are another attraction of this area. Riding is popular and a number of centres are nearby. The nearby N13 dual carriageway linking Caen and Cherbourg makes this a convenient overnight
