The drive

General

  • Peaceful woodland site in the Jumièges forest
  • Within walking distance of Jumièges and its famed abbey
  • Heated pool, snack bar, playground and free campervan service area

Verily, this is a rightly pretty tree-lined site. Traditional family park Camping de la Forêt in Upper Normandy is deep in a Seine-Maritime forest, surrounded by greenery, and viewsomely slap bang in the Boucles de la Seine Normande Natural Regional Park: try saying that after a Normandy Calvados or two…

The forest is that of Jumièges, the woody expanse of Jumièges town, among quiet countryside in a meander of the Seine. The Seine valley, Normandy coast and flat colourful countryside for hiking, biking and horse riding are among your many outdoor options in the area; townwise, spectacular Rouen, a designated Town of Art and History, is 40 minutes' drive away.

Camping de la Forêt is a friendly, peaceful and well-maintained place, with loads of space to wander or play. For more leisurely days, there's a swish heated pool with two waterslides for you and the sprogs to spend most of your time at, and an outdoor fitness area so you can keep your ripped physique in tiptop condition. Ping pong tables, tennis and a roomy playground should keep all ages occupied out of doors too… and if you get confuddled by your campervan or it needs some care and attention, a campervan service area is available for gratis use.

The bar is open all day for snacks, ice cream and cold drinks; a small grocery shop sells produce from Jumièges and the region. Bread and pastries can be picked up in the morning if you order them the night before.

A bakery, shops and restaurants are at the local village around 400 metres away.

    Nice secluded pitch with hedges around it.

    Disliked: 

    Our information said we could check in from 12:00. We arrived at 12:30 to find the reception closed. After looking around rather confused, a man and woman approached me and told we they have lunch between 12-13:30 so I’d have to come back. After showing them my paperwork which clearly stated I could check in from 12, with no mention of them closing, they begrudgingly let us check in.

Directions


Local attractions

Local town Jumièges is most famed for its abbey, hailed by Mr Victor Hugo as 'the most beautiful ruins in France' (nothing miserable about his trip there, then). An abbey of some sort has stood here since the seventh century, in a pretty parkland setting above the Seine; in a later incarnation, the abbey was consecrated in the presence of William the Conqueror.

Heading towards the Normandy coast (you really should), about an hour and a half will take you to Cabourg, on the Côte Fleurie and the coast of the English Channel. This swish town has been a popular Normandy seaside resort since the middle of the 19th century (and also has a writerly connection, as the oft-incomprehensible Marcel Proust was a fan of the sands here). Cabourg is famed these days for its art galleries and racecourse, casino and annual Romantic Film Festival: do go see.

The handsome harbour town of Honfleur, with port painted by Monet, Courbet and others, is just over an hour away: do go see that aussi.
