Pétanque and other games to play

General

  • Peaceful woodland park 15 minutes' walk from Forges-les-Eaux
  • A 45-minute drive from Rouen and Dieppe
  • Playground, pétanque court, bike hire and communal barbecues

Looking for that relaxing rural vibe, but not really willing to give up the convenience of urban amenities? Camping La Minière has both aspects sorted: this peaceful wooded site has plenty of quiet space to chill out, yet is only a 15-minute stroll from the centre of Forges-les-Eaux for easy access to a supermarket, a train station and restaurants.

Active types can while away hours on site with games of pétanque or table tennis; those whose hols favour sitting down can borrow books and board games or use the communal barbecues and picnic tables to set out an alfresco feast while les enfants mess about at the playground.

If you fancy a bit of local pottering, you can hire bikes to pedal along forest paths or hit the 18-kilometre Avenue Verte that starts from Forges-les-Eaux. Venturing further afield, a half-hour drive will take you to castles, gardens and adventure parks dotted around the countryside, while 45 minutes or so in the car can have you wandering through historic Rouen or paddling on the beaches around Dieppe.

    Clean, spacious, lovely staff, great location. Takeaway food in the evening was a real bonus. Nice private pitches. Take your own toilet roll and didn’t get to use showers as they were locked when we we left - but it was early. A short walk into town to the lakes by the casino is worth it, great for a stretch of legs. We used this site as a cheap stopover en route to Arcachon. I’d use it again. Really liked how accommodating the staff were. Excellent value! Haven’t marked WiFi as not sure if there was any...

    This more of a temporary, transit type of site. Became quite noisy later in the day. I would not stay here for more than one night and would simply use as a quick stopover

Nice site, quiet, clean and tidy, friendly staff. Good sized pitches11/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Nice site on edge of small town. Main street easily walkable via rear exit from site. Under new management. Pitches are well kept. Choice of 6 or 10 amp pitches.
    Was quiet when we visited in September for overnight stay.
    There is a lounge where you can go an sit, eat etc if you want. Free wifi code. New owner opens a little snack bar (as site was quiet he only opened for a short time).
    Pitches are a good size (not small by any measure). There are some rental homes too.

    Disliked: 

    No hot water at washing up sinks - you have to fill a bowl and carry a few yards. Toilets are mixed sex - not to everyone's taste.
    Shower block is a bit strange - there is a room with a number of good showers, and another with one shower and several sinks with mirrors. No where for ladies to wash in private other than shower (unless we missed something).
    There is a new disabled user block that is well appointed
    For an overnight stop it is perhaps a bit far from autoroute (12 miles or so) for some people - but a nice, quiet site and worth the drive.

Directions


Local attractions

Start your Normandy break with a wander around Forges-les-Eaux itself, poking around in the market and learning about the town’s wartime role at the Resistance Museum. A walk or bike ride on the Avenue Verte is highly recommended to see some of the scenic surrounds, as is a soak in the thermal waters of the local spa upon your return to town.

If you like to peruse a château or two, take the half-hour drive to Château de Fleury-la-Forêt (home to a splendid doll museum), or wander through the gardens at Chateau de Vascoeuil to spot the sculptures scattered around the estate.

More historic visits can be had in Rouen, 45 minutes’ drive away – take in the Museum of Fine Arts and Ceramic Museum, see the cathedral that inspired Monet or just potter through the restored medieval streets, looking up at the half-timbered houses.

Also within half an hour’s drive are the Rêve de Bisons animal park, the gorgeous Le Jardin Plume and the treetop trails at Arbr’en Ciel adventure park.
