Lovely outlook and location. The site has a wonderful history and is run by the same family that has owned the estate for 3 generations. The location remote but well worth the drive and it will stay in our memories for a long time.

Vrij grote camping rond een kasteel en vijver(wel vissen niet zwemmen ) in prachtige omgeving. Met zwembad. Plaatsen voldoende qua grootte. Redelijk veel schaduw rijke plaatsen. Sanitair Ok. Vriendelijke ontvangst. kleine winkel met het hoogst noodzakelijke. Bar in Juni gesloten. Restaurant wel open, niet gegeten. Op de plaatsen beneden is het verkeer nogal hoorbaar maar niet heel druk.

We chose to stay here because of the location in Normandy and it was part of the Castels chain.
Location
The site is located in the heart of the Pays d’Auge and a mile or two from the beautiful village of Blangy le Chateau. The seaside resorts of Deauville and Trouville sur Mer are about a 30 minute drive away and Lisieux and Pont l’Eveque are about 8 miles away. There are many walking and cycling routes in the area and you can get routes from the local tourist office in Blangy. A visit to Honfleur is a must but then again there are dozens of lovely villages nearby.
Reception
There was a warm welcome from the reception staff. We were allowed to select out own pitch and then guided along the access road. We were also provided with a lot of information about the area.
Pitches
The pitches are marked and most quite large. We could easily get our caravan with awning and car onto the pitch with probably enough room for a couple of tents. Grounds maintenance does not seem to be a priority. When we arrived it looked as if the grass had not been cut for a few weeks, if at all. The overall impression was of an unkempt site.
Sanitary Facilities
One of the reasons for choosing this site was because it was a member of the Castels chain. They usually have high standards. However, the toilet block behind us was one of three and the oldest. It was way past a refit. Most of the lights in the washrooms didn’t work. The cleaner gave the floors a quick wipe with a mop but the floors were pretty dirty especially behind the doors and in the corners. Many of the taps needed replacing. My wife and I used the other toilet blocks. Which were more modern but once again the standard of cleaning was poor. You tried your best not to let your towel or shower sponge drop onto the floor.
Shop
There is a small shop selling the basics including fresh baguettes and pastries every morning.
Pools
There is a medium heated swimming pool which was ok and well used on hot days.
Eating
During the day in high season there is a cafe which serves hot and cold drinks and snacks.
The restaurant opens at 6pm and serves good quality if predictable food eg steak and chips, pizzas, salads etc.
WiFi and Phone
Free wifi access around the café area. Very slow as it is used a lot.
No mobile signal.
Animations
There were some activities for children but they were very low key. Twice a week they have a musicians evening which is very entertaining. In addition the house band campers are also invited to bring their instruments and perform and they do. Some of them were very good.
Other Stuff
There’s a large children’s playground plus football and volley ball areas.
Summary
If caravan club sites are akin to army camps eg lots of rules and regulations, standard height for grass, caravan must be sited with the peg on the right blah blah blah. Then this site is a bit like a commune. It is very laid back. Hence the lack of attention to grounds maintenance and sanitary facilities. We will not return to this site. Camping Columbier just a few miles away looked much better.
Having said that, it was apparent that many people return year after year. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It has got something. I’m just not sure that I get it.
