indoor pool

General

  • In the D-Day landing zone in Normandy
  • Close to Utah, Omaha, Gold and Juno beaches and the American cemetery
  • Pools, fishing ponds, restaurant, pizzeria and kids' club

If you're venturing into Normandy to see the D-Day landing beaches – or for fishing, a highly friendly vibe, first-rate facilities and sparkingly clean amenities, make the Calvados site of Camping Port'Land your port of call.

The Port-en-Bessin-Huppain setting here is utterly fab, right in the D-Day landing area a few minutes' drive from Omaha beach and the American Cemetery, and within easy reach of the sands of Utah, Gold, Juno and Sword. To delve back further into the past, medieval Bayeux with its world-famous tapestry is under 20 minutes' drive away.

It might, however, be a bit of a battle to advance off site... For the Camping Port'Land mission is to give guests a top time in all directions, via first-rate service, constant facility upgrades and stacks to do for all tastes. This includes (get ready, for tis a lot) four fishing ponds where whoppers of up to 30lb/13+ kilos can be landed, and leisure pursuits galore including a pool table, ping pong, table football, a playground and a bouncy castle for the kids.

The heated indoor pool is (of course) family friendly; an additional, outdoor, pool is open in the sunniest months, with paddling pool and two slides alongside as well as sun loungers for grownups to bask on while keeping a beady eye on the kids. (And as it's France, swimming shorts, board shorts or other baggy attire are not allowed in the pool, so it's time for the gents to strut in their Speedos, ta.)

Activities like painting, outdoor games, French Olympics and loads more of all flavours can be leapt into at the Little Frogs club, cheerfully greeting ages five to 12 daily in the summer months. Then take the crew to dig into the traditional home-cooked cuisine and 'the best burgers in town' at the restaurant, or, in July and August, bag a tasty takeaway from Pizza'land Pizzeria.

Essentials are well sorted too, at the small shop next to reception, open from 8am to midday and from 5pm to 8pm daily in July and August. It's well stocked with daily essentials as well as souvenirs, postcards, fishing rods and swimming costumes, including those Speedos if you're new to this particular version of French fashion. Adapters, board games and pétanque balls can also be borrowed on site (a small refundable deposit applies).

And the icing on this very friendly French cake? Electric hook-ups have been added to the car park for any guests who have late ferry departures, so you can still use the vast range of site facilities before you leave.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    The campsite is brilliant very safe and child friendly. Our ASD 7 year old cope with the while thing and our 5 year old was in a safe environment to explore her freedom. The pitches are a good size and the toilets are cleaned regularly. The pools are great and the kids throughly enjoyed the water slides. The location is perfect for touring the beaches and other ww2 locations. We will be returning.

Local attractions

This fab site is centrally set in Normandy's D-Day landing zone, a few minutes' drive from Omaha beach and the American Cemetery, and close to the sands of Utah, Gold, Juno and Sword.

About 10 kilometres away, delve into the centuries-old history between England and Normandy (hint: it's rather fiery) with a trip to the famed medieval town of Bayeux, home of the even more famed Bayeaux Tapestry. Painstakingly stitched over a vast 68-metre length in the 11th century to depict the story of the successful Norman invasion of England by William and his crew, the tapestry is now housed in the Musée de la Tapisserie de Bayeux, where you can go to marvel at it for a reasonable fee.

Within an hour of the site are the Pointe du Hoc, overlooking the English Channel; the seaside towns of Longues-Sur-Mer and Grandcamp-Maisy; Merville, where battle also raged on D-Day; the World War II battery of Crisbecq, and the Memorial Pegasus of Caen.

An Accrobranche treetop adventure park is nine kilometres away.
