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 130 grassy pitches, around 40 are for tourers, all with electricity connections (10A) and water taps to hand. The remainder are occupied by well kept mobile homes, including 38 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.
The central sanitary block includes five hot push-button showers, attractive vanity-style open washbasins plus some in cabins. Baby room. Second block with facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machine and dryer. Shop. Bar/snack bar with TV. Heated pool with retractable roof, water slides and paddling pool (Seasonal) Evening entertainment. Activities for children. Tennis. Table tennis (covered and floodlit). Boules. Multisports court. Play area and bouncy castles. Fishing lakes. Pond with ducks, geese and other fowl. Mini farm and aviary. Free WiFi in bar.
