Camping in Normandy – Perfect for Children

If you want to spend some quality time with family or friends, why not make your next break a camping holiday in Normandy? 

Camping is the ideal way to keep the kids busy on holiday. Camping Sunêlia L'Aiguille Creuse in the Manche region of north-west Normandy offers everything you could wish for on a family camping trip near the Loges.
Amenities include a water park, indoor and outdoor swimming pools (with a covered area to keep the little ones shaded), and a mini market to stock up. All this is located on acres of countryside and is within easy reach of several sandy beaches.

Explore Normandy with Friends

Normandy is the ideal place to get away from it all with a group of friends. Whether you're adults or taking the kids, one of our four or 5-star campsites in Normandy will give you the break you deserve. The beautiful French countryside surrounds every Normandy campsite, and a beach is never far away.

Why Choose Camping in Normandy?

Camping Near the Sea

Normandy offers a comfortable climate, an insight into the French way of life, and some excellent gastronomic dishes to try. Combine this with the comfort of a 4-star campsite, and you've got the recipe for a perfect family or couples' holiday in northern France.

If you're seeking a campsite in Normandy close to sandy beaches with the convenience of a swimming pool, try the Seine-Maritime. This idyllic area shows off the Normandy coastline at its best – dramatic cliffs, beautiful sunsets, and pretty fishing villages. On the west coast of France, you can discover several campsites on the French Atlantic coast, where you'll find everything from surfing to sailing and kayaking. Several of our camps offer direct access to the beach, so there's no need to pack up the car with the buckets and spades and picnic.

Which Camping Accommodation to Choose?

When staying at a campsite do you prefer to pitch your tent or glamping? Sunelia camping resorts in the north of France offer both options. While staying in a tent gets you close to nature, sometimes the luxury of a mobile home is more comfortable. You get a private terrace, and many of our campsites accept dogs.
Are you looking for a camping holiday for a special occasion? Why not consider one of our four or five star campsite near the sea.

Normandy is renowned for the D-Day landing beaches like Utah Beach.

Camping in Normandy : your holidays by the sea

The Magic of Normandy

Normandy is so easy to reach from the UK, and you can catch a ferry to the ports of Caen, Cherbourg, and Le Havre and arrive at your campsite feeling refreshed. The journey leaves plenty of time for exploring towns like Maupertus-Sur-Mer, which is well known for its spectacular hiking trails. You'll also find the pretty seaside resort of te de Nacre on this coast, where you can sample the region's famous local Calvados (apple brandy). 
Another attraction in Normandy is the Maison et Jardines de Claude Monet. The famous French painter lived here for his last 43 years; these gardens inspired his iconic Water Lily paintings.

 

Take a family walk near the cliffs of Etretat

One place worth a visit when camping in this region is the magnificent cliffs of Etretat. Known as the Alabaster Coast, the chalk-white cliffs have formed massive arches over the years and are an enchanting sight at sunset. Family holidays in Normandy are also a great way to taste this region's delicious food and drink (cheese, wine, Calvados, cider, and seafood).

Enjoy these gastronomic delights while sitting in the sun in your camping chair – pure relaxation!
