Zone C

General

  • Stay on a scenic old farmstead among apple trees and green fields
  • Less than an hour from D-Day beaches and the Bayeux tapestry museum
  • Restaurant serving snacks and dinners, and French bar

Seeking hols that bring a taste of history, culture and local delicacies? Make immediate tracks for Camping Sous Les Étoiles Normandie – a family- and dog-friendly site less than five minutes’ drive from the Normandy village of Saint-Martin-des-Besaces – where all of that combines for a sweet stay.

This family-run and English-speaking site is well placed for explores in past and present: it’s about 45 minutes from the hikes, bikes, paths and trails (not to mention châteaux) of the Regional Nature Park of Normandie-Maine, and less than an hour from the museums and memorials of the D-Day beaches Utah, Omaha, Gold, Sword and Juno.

While out and about, sampling the local wares is an absolute must; this area is renowned for its cheese, but the real star of the show is calvados, the region’s apple and pear brandy. Luckily, the site is about 40 minutes from a handful of distilleries, and there are a couple of cideries nearby for good measure.

When site days are needed, there’s plenty to entice. An old farmstead, there are lots of green spaces here to lounge around on while kids play, and apple trees dotted around to inspire thoughts of (more) calvados and cider – nip over to the on-site bar for a sip, and nab a bite for dinner in the Cow Shed.

    Like it all. First location in France and I suspect it will prove to be one of the best. Dawn and Steve (owners) lovely couple and everyone else there really helpful and friendly. I got bogged down with the rains in the grass and all hands to the pump to help me out. Very tranquil and peaceful. Local village small, quiet and charmingly authentic. Facilites were great. Wrong time of year for me to enjoy the lovely snug and food, so I will be back for sure. Wifi, electricity great. New shower block and excellent cleaning, waste and servicing facilties. Kids play area (xbox) being made ready, so parents will enjoy some peace. Can't fault the place.

Directions


Local attractions

Start with a visit to Saint-Martin-des-Besace’s Musée 44 La Percée du Bocage (a 10-minute walk), dedicated to the allies’ liberation of Normandy, then get a slow-paced feel for the region on horseback with a tour from one of the stables within 10 minutes’ drive.

More high-octane pursuits beckon 15 minutes away at the partially demolished Viaduc de la Souleuvre, where catapulting off towering objects (with bungee-cord firmly attached) is encouraged, and at Parc Festyland themepark on the outskirts of Caen, 40 minutes from base.

Caen is a top spot for an urban day or two, with abbeys, memorials, museums, châteaux, gardens and (of course) shops to traipse around – but those in need of scenic vistas might do better to turn their sights to the coast, where the spectacular famed Mont Saint-Michel towers above the sea.

History buffs left wanting more after trips to the beaches of D-Day can dedicate a day to the town of Bayeux, where the 70-metre Bayeux tapestry is on display depicting the story of William the Conqueror, and the Baron Gérard art museum adds to the cultural experience.

Within 15 minutes, those whose passions lie in the open air can spend days whizzing along ziplines and poking around treetops at Accrobranche Mayya, and budding zoologists can get their fix among the white lions, Siberian tigers and red cat-bears – that’s red pandas – at Zoo de Jurques.
