Honfleur: an ancient port city with dock and very picturesque house fronts. Stroll through the narrow streets, explore the workshops. The art galleries and museums are delightful to visit.
The Normandy Bridge: Europe's longest cable-stayed bridge connects Honfleur to the port of Le Havre and to the famous Etretat cliffs.
Boucles de la Seine Normande Natural Park: a truly old-world destination. Discover it by walking along its numerous footpaths. Three tourist roads (cottages, fruit, and bread) follow the peaceful curves of the Seine.
Deauville and Trouville: true Norman
seaside resorts located on a flowering coast with fine sandy beaches, casinos, racetracks, yearling sales, film festival, etc.
Lisieux: a pilgrimage town (the basilica and Carmelite cloister of Saint Thérèse), a gastronomic town (cheese, cider, calvados).
A rendezvous with the sea and the land in regions rich in history and tradition. From Mont-St-Michel to the cliffs of the Pas de Calais through the Baie de Somme, there is an amazing variety of coastlines. Here the waves roar as they carve out the cliffs, sometimes plunging inland, or lapping gently on vast beaches. Visit also further inland, countryside for all your holiday activities, brisk and tonic, calm and relaxed, cultural or gastronomic.

We arrived for the last week in August. Site is in a great position to visit much of Normandy and easily reached. Honfleur is just a short drive away and has a lot to see and do. Park in the first large car park you come to on the right by the port otherwise you will struggle. Our welcome was ok, fast and efficient. The pitch (number 13!) was a decent size but like all of those by the wash block, very waterlogged. The electric hook up was a lead hanging from a tree trunk, and had a tendency to fill up with water during a wet week! The bar/take away was popular as was the pool. Some evening entertainment was provided, but the pitch area remained quiet at night.
Sadly the wash block just couldn't cope with the number of campers and didn't get anything like the cleaning it needed. That includes the chemical waste disposal area and the fresh water supply. Quite honestly it was filthy, and I'm trying to be fair given the wet weather. That grime had clearly built up over a longer period of time.
We will look for another site when we visit the area again. Our neighbours felt the same.
