Alan Rogers Review
This is a peaceful, rural site close to the Normandy coast and the pretty harbour town of Honfleur, where you are assured of a friendly welcome from the new resident owners. There are around 130 pitches, 82 for tourers, all with 4/8/13A electricity. Some have shade, while others are more open. There are 30 mobile homes and a thatched cottage to rent. An open field houses tents and other units not requiring electricity. Well fenced streams, popular with young anglers, run through the site. Improvements have not compromised the French atmosphere, and this is an ideal base for exploring this part of Normandy.
The pretty harbour town of Honfleur is within very easy reach, whilst those seeking city life and huge hypermarkets can head for Le Havre across the spectacular Pont de Normandie. Beyond Honfleur you’ll find the fashionable resorts of Deauville and Trouville, and then more beaches at Villers-sur-Mer and Houlgate. The nearby Vallée de la Risle is well worth a visit and further afield the Forêt de Brotonne offers peace and quiet. Up the coast beyond Le Havre is Etretat with its beautiful cliff formations and the possibility of spectacular sunsets. Inland, Pont l’Evêque is an interesting little town famous for its cheese, and further south is Lisieux and its impressive basilica dedicated to Sainte Thérèse.
A single heated toilet block contains mostly British style WCs, hot showers, some washbasins in cubicles, and basic facilities for babies and disabled visitors. One section is enclosed and heated when required. Washing machine and dryer. Reception with small shop. Bar/restaurant with simple regional dishes and snacks. Heated swimming pool with slides and flume (Seasonal). Two playgrounds. Trampoline. Children’s farm. Boules. WiFi throughout (charged).
From Pont de Normandie (toll bridge) take first exit on leaving bridge (exit 3, A29) signed Honfleur. At roundabout turn left under motorway towards Le Mans and Alencon on D580/D180. Take second exit on right after 2.5 km, onto D22 towards Beuzeville. Site is on right after 1 km. From other directions, head for roundabout below exit 3 of A29 at southern end of Pont de Normandie and take D580 as above.Link to campsite location map on google
