Alan Rogers Review
Riva Bella Normandie (formally known as Les Pommiers) is an attractive and well equipped municipal site which is very convenient for the Ouistreham ferry terminal. The site is located on the edge of the small town of Ouistreham alongside the large canal which passes Pegasus Bridge and leads to the city of Caen. There are 374 grassy pitches here, some are well shaded and others with a sunnier aspect. Most have electrical connections (6A) and around 20 pitches have been specially designated for motorcaravans with a special nightly rate. A supermarket can be found 800 m. from the site. A few small mobile homes are available to rent.
Given its location, this site will often be used as a convenient stop to tie in with the nearby cross-channel ferry service. However, this part of the Normandy Coast is of great interest. Pegasus Bridge at nearby Bénouville is the point where the landing of six British gliders marked the beginning of D-Day operations. The Gondrée café adjacent is still run by the same family and has much memorabilia of interest.
Basic but clean sanitary facilities include WCs and showers. Laundry facilities. Motorcaravan services. Play area. Tennis. Activities and entertainment in high season. Internet access. Mobile homes to rent.

Ouistreham can be found to the north of Caen. Approaching on the D514 and D84 the site is clearly signed close to a large traffic roundabout.
