Camping Le Riva Bella is in a nifty neck of the woods for those travelling through Basse-Normandie and seeking a stopoff on their way south, as it's near the Caen ferry port in Ouistreham and handy for a rest on the way from Portsmouth.
But many travellers stick around for a while on site too, as Le Riva Bella is also a short drive (11 kilometres) from the D-Day landing beaches and only three kilometres to the war memorial of the Pegasus Bridge. (There's direct access from the site too to the canal of the Orne river and evening strolls or daytime cycles along its banks.)
Le Riva Bella is a no-frills site but has toilet blocks with free hot showers, a playground and a washing-up area among its amenities. The bathrooms were refurbished and a summer pool added for the 2017 season.
The marina, casino and shops of Ouistreham centre are two kilometres away.
Open from 01/04/2017 to 30/10/2017

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 now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
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.

Travellers coming to Basse-Normandie to explore the history and heritage of World War II have the Pegasus Bridge and the Pegasus Museum a few minutes' drive from Camping Le Riva Bella, a memorial to the 6th Airborne Division in the Normandy landings and to Operation Deadstick. The American War Cemetery and the five D-Day beaches – Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword – are also within easy reach.
Along the Normandy coast, have a trip to see Mont Saint Michel, the UNESCO World Heritage Site that's one of France's most recognisable and most visited sites, and to the town of Avranches, which holds the manuscripts of Mont Saint-Michel, one of the biggest collections of medieval illuminated manuscripts in all of la belle France.
Ouistreham a couple of kilometres away has the Museum of the Atlantic Wall and the Musée du Débarquement no 4 Commando alongside its shops and restaurants.
