Camping Le Puits Review

Onsite Facilities & Activities
Camping Le Puits is a family run campsite in the village of St Martin des Besaces, Calvados, offering camping / caravanning and Bed & Breakfast. Perfectly situated for exploring the undulating picturesque countryside, tasting renowned cheeses, sampling sparkling cider and of course, the famous Calvados.
Once a working farmstead, the grounds (9 acres) benefit from 30 large individually marked pitches, hedges, apple trees and borders overlooking lush green fields.
We have a small Carp fishing pond where you may while away the hours in peace and quiet.
We have a quaint bar familiarly known as “Le Snug” where you can slake your thirst with a cool beer or the local Calvados (Apple Brandy). We also serve snacks and provide chips for takeaway.
The farmhouse, which has been tastefully renovated, retains its country charm with 4 elegantly decorated en-suite rooms providing comfortable Bed & Breakfast accommodation with pleasant views.
All our camping pitches are set to grass.
Our standard pitches are a minimum 100sq meters – all with optional Electricty Hook-Up
Our Super Pitches are even larger in size and come with 16 amp EHU as standard. Clear water disposal is available on pitch and fresh water is also on pitch. You may hook-up direct to these facilities if your van supports such uook up.
We have a small play area for the little ones.
For those who prefer to read on our quiet calm pitches we offer a book lending library on a “swap” system – you bring a book and you take away a book.
To the North of St Martin des Besaces are the D-day Landing Beaches, where we will celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the landings, and Bayeux with its famous tapestry.
To the South is the historic and pretty village of Domfront, within Normandy’s large regional park.
To the East in Suisse Normand (little Switzerland) is Clécy with a miniature railway and the River Orne for canoeing and fishing.
To the West lies the breathtaking Le Mont St Michel and the beaches along the Cotentin shoreline.
Within the village, there is a Museum dedicated to the liberation of the Bocage Region in July 1944 and for the more adventurous – nearby Bungy Jumping.
