Alan Rogers Review

Le Colombier is a real gem of a campsite, situated in the grounds of a Normandy château, which is home to the owner. Within the attractive, landscaped gardens there is a large, rectangular swimming pool and an impressive former dovecote now houses a cosy bar and library. There are no mobile homes or chalets here; all 178 pitches are dedicated to touring, most with electricity connections. They are large and marked out by trees at the corners, but with no dividing hedges. Reception is in a restored building and the staff are efficient and friendly. The site’s main amenities are open all season.

Mme. Charles, the owner, plays an active role in the running of the site and is determined to maintain a calm and peaceful atmosphere. In July and August, weather permitting, she organises classical concerts which take place in the grounds. Many English and Dutch visitors return here year after year. The quiet countryside setting is perfect for ‘getting away from it all’ but also provides the opportunity for visiting local places of interest. Lisieux is 16 km. away and places on the coast, such as Deauville and Honfleur, are 30-40 km.
