The pool

General

  • Peaceful rural site 10 minutes' drive from Le Molay-Littry
  • Less than an hour from ferry ports at Cherbourg and Caen
  • Bar-restaurant overlooking the heated outdoor pool

Seeking somewhere for a first night after the ferry to Cherbourg or Caen? Friendly Tournières site Camping Le Picard certainly fits that bill – less than an hour’s drive from either port (on easy-to-negotiate main roads to help nervous wrong-side-of-the-road drivers acclimatise) and you can be taking a dip in the heated pool or sipping a beer at the bar while plotting your next move.

Mind you, perhaps your next move should be… well, not to move at all. This is a mighty fine destination in its own right, with more than enough to keep guests amused for many a day – Bayeux and the D-Day landing beaches are both around 20 minutes’ drive away, and you can get to UNESCO-listed Mont Saint-Michel in just over an hour. Beaches and animal parks are close by for the small sorts, as are cider and Calvados producers for thirsty grownups.

And if you really, really don’t want to move at all, there’s that outdoor pool to play about in/recline next to, a fishing pond for quiet rod-dangling days and games of pétanque and table tennis to provide gentle activity.

Come along in summer and you’ll not even need to stir yourself for eats and drinks, as the poolside bar-restaurant can supply you with drinks, snacks, kid-friendly meals and home-cooked dinners. (At other times, you’re looking at a barely-arduous 10-minute trip to Le Molay-Littry for supplies, followed by lighting up your barbie if you so desire.)

Dear Family,

Thank you for your review. Of course we are located in the countryside so you need a vehicule to go to the nearest village (5 kms) or to visit the area (17 kms from the Dday beaches or 20 kms from Bayeux).
Hope to see you a next time.
Best regards.

    It is clear from the moment of arriving the site owners are a " Hands on Family Team ", dedicated in assisting all their customers in every way they can .. At the same time maintaining the camp site to a very high standard ..
    I find it so relaxing when you know that there is (free) running hot water 24/7 and immaculately clean toilets no matter what month it is in the camping season ..
    The site is situated well away from Motorways & Railway lines or Industry which I find ideal , as there are so many sites affected by undisclosed noise issues ..
    The site is suitable for both Families ( with children ) & at the same time Senior Campers ...
    The Owners do speak several languages , & always find time to assist with any camp site or local area information ...
    I found it a very popular site with English Tourists / Campers .
    Never came across any late night noise ( All part of being well managed ) ..

    Disliked: 

    Difficult to fault unless you wanted a full field to yourself & your 4 wheel caravan , as the pitches are large in general ................... Our unit was 20ft x15 ft ( inc., Awning ) and we had no issues with pitch size ...

Dear Guests,

Many thanks for your nice comments. Hope to see you next year with your new caravan. Best regards. Delphine

    The site was quite pleasant. We were greeted by a very friendly lady on reception who spoke English. The site was quite a green and pleasant, quiet site.

    The snack bar was not always open, which was a great disappointment to us.

From the manager...

Dear Guests,

Our snack bar is open everyday during the high season. We are sorry that you didn't have the information that it is only open on reservation, in low season.
You only stayed 1 night so it was difficult for you to give a value about our services (laundry, bakery service, recycling area, touristic information, our heated swimming-pool...). Hope to see you longer a next time longer to enjoy the area. Best regards. Delphine

Directions


Local attractions

Beach days around these parts have rather more significance than in many areas, as the nearest stretch of coastline is that of the D-Day Beaches. The beaches up here aren’t stuck in the past, though: memorials and museums rub alongside family-friendly stretches of sand. For the best mix of history and seaside fun, head to Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer (site of Omaha Beach) or Arromanches-les-Bains.

History buffs will no doubt also want to spend at least a day in Bayeux, 20 minutes’ drive away. The ancient 68-metre Bayeux Tapestry draws in huge crowds, but it’s not the town’s only attraction: plan to spend some time visiting the Baron Gérard art museum and the Battle of Normandy, and wandering around the medieval centre.

A little further afield (around an hour’s drive) are Mont Saint-Michel and Cherbourg's excellent Cité de la Mer maritime museum and aquarium.
