General

  • Normandy site in Sainte-Mère-Église with playground and shop
  • WW2 museum five minutes' walk; Utah beach and museum 15-minute drive
  • Play area, massages, bike hire and shop with the site's own craft beer

Bag a berth on this Normandy spot for boat trips, craft beers and beaches with a big story.

History is everywhere of course, but the little Lower Normandy town of Sainte-Mère-Église has higher concentrations than most, as one of the first towns liberated on D-Day in 1944. Away from the drama, but five minutes from the centre of town, Camping de Sainte-Mère-Église is a quiet, well-kept base from which to explore a region rich in history, nature and grand vistas.

The site is lined with trees and hedges, with plenty of room to roam around. There's a playground too, bike hire for when you're ready to explore... and massage bookings available as well. After all that biking and relaxing, amble over to pick up some local produce at the on-site shop, including Sainte-Mère-Église’s own very quaffable craft beer.

The town is dotted with memorials of the D-Day landings; start off at the Airborne Museum (five minutes’ walk or two minutes’ drive from the site) for a fine introduction. The famed landing beaches of Utah and Omaha, and their museums, are 15 minutes and half an hour’s drive away.

    A quiet, friendly site, only a short walk from the town centre and the excellent Airborne Museum. Spacious, well kept pitches with dividing hedges and a few apple trees scattered around. Adjacent woodland provides shelter from the wind.
    Contrary to some previous comments, we approve of the gender-neutral showers and toilets and think other campsites should adopt this convenient system. It enables parents to supervise their children, regardless of gender, and maximises availability of the facilities at busy times. We never had to queue for a shower during our stay and the facilities were always spotlessly clean.

    Close to town luckily as no provisions on site at all

    Disliked: 

    People very loud late at night arguing and shouting at other campers . Pitches not big enough very close to others 3 pitches in one Corner . Water in showers and wash room not hot enough . No paper towels to dry your hands on in toilets. Men's urinals right in entrance to both shower blocks and toilets no doors so all the children walking past can see . Didn't think staff was as friendly as reviews say only dealt with on a couple of occasions and each was blunt

From the manager...

Hello Mr Foy,
Waouh, what a comment full of hate ;). It's sad you didn't complian directly to us. Yes, we can be tired at the end of the day, but not blunt ?! We are always helpful and receptiv, 7 days a week - 9am to 8 pm. We even gave you some tent pegs when you asked, the day we had strong winds, do you remember ?
May I answer to your comments ?
- no provisions on site : we have a boutique with only local products (beers, soda, icecream and cider) because town is only 3 minutes walking with all the facilities and supermarket at 1 km.
- people loud at night : yes, of course, it can happens sometimes, it's very very rare fortunately. Why you didn't let us know ? We would have come immediately
- Pitches not big enough : most of our pitches are over 100 sqm, some over 200 sqm. We could have give you another pitch if the one you had was not satisfying. You were on pitches 18 and 19, there are about 130 sqm each.
- water not warm enough : we control it everyday (38°C) and have no complain about it
- Men's urinal are not at the entrance, but in a alcove, after. We planned to add some doors for next season
- No paper towels to dry hand ?! This is a bit luxury for camping, no ? Especially in a time where it's good to think about the environment. 5 stars camping probably have paper to dry hands, but price is twice. We want to keep our camping very affordable.
Really, your comments are not fair and I can't understand you didn't come to see us during the week you stayed with us.
Best regards

Directions


Local attractions

Fortunately, the beaches of northern France have returned to their original purpose, and Ravenoville (15 minutes’ drive) with its rows of coloured houses and wide sands is a fine example.

Sitting on an inlet surrounded by wetlands, Carentan (20 minutes) has walking trails to the sea, and is the place to book a boat trip through the marshes. Walks through the teeming and diverse landscape of the Parc Naturel des Marais du Cotentin start from the park centre at Saint Côme du Mont.

If you’re itching to get on the water after all that, the activity centre at Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte (20 minutes) will soon have you canoeing and kayaking down the Douve. For thrills of a higher kind, the forest centre there has treetop walks, climbs and rope swings.

After all that hurtling about, take a ramble round Bayeux (40 minutes), a handsome town whose medieval character escaped the war unscathed. There’s a well-regarded D-Day Museum here too, but most of the footfall of course is for the legendary tapestry which tells the tale of a different invasion. (Check before you visit though, it might have gone to Britain...)
