This is one of Normandy's classiest campsites. It's on the green grounds of one of Louis XVIth's hunting lodges, just back from the historic house between the apple trees, glassy pond and a little wood. For the kids there's a maze, a stylish, in the French way, pool and facilities wing, and lots of space to run around and trees to climb, and for grown ups there's quiet, beautiful surrounds and a whole lot of history – the hunting lodge has been in the same family for generations, and the owners took to talking in campers to help pay for the repairs to WW2 bomb damage.

Eating is one of the cross generational things to do around here. Moules, crevettes, locally grown fruit and veg – the apples sometimes fortified into cider and calvados, and freshly baked breads and other treats - which are brought in to the camp every morning by delivery in time for breakfast.
