- Set around a 17th-century converted farmhouse 10 minutes from Bayeux
- Half an hour's drive from the D-Day landing beaches
- Pick fruit from the site trees for free
All manner of holiday delights are on offer around this manor – with beaches, châteaux, outdoor activities and famed historical attractions (in the form of the Bayeux Tapestry and the D-Day landing beaches) all close at hand, this is a mighty strategic spot to settle in for a bit of Normandy pottering.
And it’s not just the surrounds that are most excellent at Manoir de L' Abbaye – the place itself is pretty special, too. 10 minutes’ drive from Bayeux is this pretty traditional 17th-century former farmhouse, now set up to welcome guests to a peaceful rural retreat. Come armed with a bottle to crack open after dark, as it’s most likely you’ll be wanting to spend a bit of time sitting out gazing up into the sky as the stars come out (fingers crossed for negligible cloud cover).
If you need something to nibble as you meander around the estate, the friendly folks on site are happy for you to pluck fresh fruit from their trees, and they’ll also have fresh bread and croissants ready for your brekkie in the mornings. More substantial feeding needs can be catered for at the supermarkets, shops and restaurants in Bayeux; feel free to bring your wares back to site for a barbie if you fancy an alfresco grilling sesh.
Also on site are a play area for the tots and (naturellement) a pétanque court for those très traditional games à la français.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Bayeux, 10 minutes away, is quite rightly famed for its medieval tapestry (getting on for a hefty 70 metres long); also in town are a couple of good museums including the splendid Musée Baron Gerard.
It’s also worth heading over to Caen, 20 minutes away, to visit the medieval Abbaye-aux-Hommes and the castle commissioned by William the Conqueror. More recent history are commemorated in the form of museums, cemeteries and monuments at the D-Day landing beaches around Arromanches-les-Bains and Omaha Beach, around half an hour away.
For a bit of fresh air, there are some fab walking trails and watersports (including canoeing and windsurfing) in the Marais du Cotenin Regional Natural Park. Or pack up your bucket and spade and make for the sandy beaches of Asnelles or Courseulles-sur-Mer, both around 20 minutes away.
