Visit Normandy with the family
With its lighthouses, coves, cliffs and huge, fine sand beaches, the coast of Normandy offers an amazing diversity of landscapes to discover with the family!
On foot, by bike or at the wheel of your campervan, drift along the Normandy coast and soak up the amazing views over the Channel, from the heights of the cliffs of Etretat, from Ouistreham lighthouse or at the Pointe du Hoc. Make the most of your holiday by having a go at sand yachting with the family, or doing a bit of exploring aboard a catamaran: they say the coastline of Normandy is even lovelier when you see it from the sea!
Visit Normandy as a couple
When it comes to sea, history and fine food, Normandy will win over all your 5 senses! Travelling as a couple, come and discover a wealth of new places from your seaside campsite: if you're a fan of beaches swept by the sea breeze, the Belle Époque features of the seaside resorts of Cabourg, Honfleur and Deauville will be a real hit. And if history is your thing, Normandy will quench your thirst for knowledge with the famous D-Day Landing beaches.
Normandy is also a hotspot when it comes to the Impressionists, and will reveal its loveliest landscapes to you, the same ones which formed the inspiration for Monet: magical sunsets, harbours with shimmering hues, lush gardens and more! So get ready to see it all in all its guises during your holidays in Normandy!

Which are the most touristic departments in Normandy?
During your stay at one of our high-end campsites in Normandy, set out to explore the region! It is made up of five departments, two of which are particularly appreciated by tourists:
• Calvados: Deauville, Cabourg, Honfleur... whether you come for the summer holidays or just for a weekend, it’s impossible to resist the allure of these seaside resorts. The Calvados department also features some outstanding natural and historical sites: the Gorges de la Vire, Pointe du Hoc and, in the south of the department, Falaise and its castle.
• Manche: with almost 300 km of coastline, the Manche department is paradise for bathers and hikers alike. In addition to Mont-Saint-Michel, there’s a myriad of villages and fishing harbours that will fuel your spirit of adventure, including Barfleur, Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue and Maupertus-sur-Mer.
Which are the most beautiful towns in Normandy?
Here, world-famous tourist destinations sit alongside small, characteristic coastal harbours:
• St Aubin-sur-Mer (Calvados): after a day spent in your campsite’s swimming pool, savour Normandy’s gastronomy in one of the town’s seafront restaurants.
• Caen (Calvados): head out from your campsite with direct access to the sea and explore the former capital of Lower Normandy, just a 30-minute drive away. With its ducal castle, peace memorial and the Abbey of Saint-Étienne, you’ll find plenty to see and do.
• Deauville and Trouville (Calvados): these two resorts on the Côte Fleurie are the epitome of Norman luxury and chic. Two of the most upscale destinations in France!
• Maupertus-sur-Mer (Manche): a small village that looks just like a postcard from Normandy. Nestled between bocage landscapes and rolling meadows, hiking fans will be in their element.
• Mont-Saint-Michel (Manche): how did this lonely islet become an architectural gem? To find out, head to the centre of the eponymous bay.
• Cherbourg (Manche): located at the tip of the Cotentin peninsula, the town of Cherbourg has a distinctly maritime feel. The highlight will be a trip to the Cité de la Mer and its huge aquarium.
• Granville (Manche): on the western facade of the Manche department, this town was long the lair of some of the most formidable privateers. Granville is more peaceful today and you’re sure to be smitten with its ramparts and fishing harbour.
• Étretat (Seine-Maritime): treat yourself to a peaceful, leisurely stroll along its beach and at the foot of its famous cliffs.
What are the must-see tourist attractions in Normandy?
Our luxury campsites are ideally located when you want to immerse yourself in the local culture and surrounding nature:
• The D-Day Landing beaches: with Juno Beach, Omaha Beach and Sword Beach in the Calvados and Utah Beach in the Manche department, you’ll feel all the emotion of this landmark historical event. In the surrounding area, there are dozens of museums where you can find out all you need to know about the Allies’ heroic victory.
• The cliffs of Étretat: to the east of the landing beaches, head to the top of the cliffs of Étretat in the Seine-Maritime for a blast of fresh sea air. Towering more than 100 metres above the Atlantic Ocean, it’s a bit too high to attempt a dive, but ideal for admiring the sweeping views!
• Cotentin peninsula: this area feels like the edge of the world and will enchant nature lovers. The Cotentin Natural Regional Park will introduce you to some unexpected and untamed fauna and flora.
• The Chausey Islands: located off the coast in the English Channel, the Chausey Islands are a string of islets that remain particularly wild. An opportunity for you to take to the sea and conquer its sandy beaches and many hiking trails.
