Alan Rogers Review of Camping Le Picard
Le Picard campsite is located in Tournières, in the Calvados region in the heart of Normandy. The site is situated right in the centre of the village behind an old farmhouse. The site is small with only 55 grass pitches, 35 of which, with10 amp hook-up point, are available for touring units. Some with hardstanding and some with shade. Don't be put off that this site is small and basic the amenities here are very good with an outdoor heated swimming pool, children's playground and an on-site restaurant. There is a small lake near the site. The site is small and basic, but the service and quality of the amenities are excellent. You can also find a lake on site where you can fish, but you must return your catch to the water. The restaurant here is cosy with a simple menu but offers local cuisine for you to try. There is no on-site shop here, but fresh bread is delivered daily during the high season.
Beach days around these parts have rather more significance than in many areas, as the nearest stretch of coastline is that of the D-Day Beaches. The beaches up here aren’t stuck in the past, though: memorials and museums rub alongside family-friendly stretches of sand. For the best mix of history and seaside fun, head to Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer (site of Omaha Beach) or Arromanches-les-Bains. History buffs will no doubt also want to spend at least a day in Bayeux, 20 minutes’ drive away. The ancient 68-metre Bayeux Tapestry draws in huge crowds, but it’s not the town’s only attraction: plan to spend some time visiting the Baron Gérard art museum and the Battle of Normandy and wandering around the medieval centre. A little further afield (around an hour’s drive) are Mont Saint-Michel and Cherbourg's excellent Cité de la Mer maritime museum and aquarium.
