Manoir de L'Abbaye: Campsite area 2

General

  • 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 fan holiday picks 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... Set 10 minutes’ drive from Bayeux, this pretty traditional 17th-century former farmhouse is 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.

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 eats can be catered for at the supermarkets, shops and restaurants in Bayeux; feel free to bring your wares back to site for a barbie too.

Also on site are a play area for the tots and (naturellement) a pétanque court for those très traditional games à la français.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely part of France and campsite was just great. Toilets and facilities were a little out dated but we're clean functional and I was happy to use them. The camp site is set in what can be described as a well developed farm in a previous life with courtyard and very French building architecture for the time it was built. I would recommend this site for families as it is quiet in a rural area and just simply a lovely place to visit.

    Disliked: 

    Constant bell ringing of nearby church at all hours but this is not the campsites fault. Not sure if we attended this site during a religious festival or what but the bells drove me nuts and had to buy ear plugs for a good night's sleep.

Directions


Local attractions

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 is 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 Cotentin 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.
