Alan Rogers Review

L’Escapade is in an attractive countryside location in the heart of Normandy, west of Caen and within easy reach of both Ouistreham (Caen) and Cherbourg ferry terminals. The spacious entrance is flanked by an attractive fishing lake and by the smart reception and bar linked by decking and a terrace, with the pool complex beyond. The camping area is at the top of a hill on gently sloping ground. Of the 92 grassy pitches, 31 are for tourers, all with electricity connections (10A) and water taps to hand. The remainder are occupied by well kept mobile homes, including 28 to rent.

The nearby villages include Balleroy which has a small supermarket, a post office, a bakery and a bar. The town of Bayeux, home of the famous Tapestry, historic Saint-Lô and the bustling city of Caen are all within easy reach, as are many Calvados vineyards and cellars. Other possible destinations for interesting days out include Arromanches and the Normandy beaches, Deauville and Honfleur to the northeast and Mont Saint-Michel to the southwest.
