Chateau Le Brevedent Reviews

Chateau Le Brevedent Reviews

Chateau Le Brevedent Holiday Park

Chateau Le Brevedent sits amid beautiful Normandy countryside and is located within easy reach of the channel ports which makes it a great place for young families to holiday together. Whether it’s a two-week summer break, a half term week away or even a long weekend this site is just about perfect.

The site has a friendly, helpful reception where English is spoken (anglo-french owners) and where you can get access to the internet, even using WiFi. The camp does have disabled facilities which you might want to look into when you book. There is also an on-site laundry which is a dream when you’ve young ones – not quite so many t-shirts and shorts needed (leaving a bit more room for duty free on the way home.)

Chateau Le Brevedent is a small camp, perfect for younger families with just 144 pitches. If you have very young ones you might want to know that some pitches are close to water. You can avoid these by making a request when you book. So, read on to find out about your choice of canvass or chalets

There are two types of tents, the Classic with bedrooms (two or three) and a living/cooking area and the much more glam safari tent. Again, separate bedrooms and kitchen area with semi open air dining and living space. Really Lawrence of Arabia!

Chalet wise you have a perfect choice of two or three bedroom chalets. They have a separate living/kitchen space that has all of the mod cons you need for feeding the tribe. Chalets also come with outside space so add to that barbecues provided (tents as well) and your self catering becomes much more of an adventure.

Facilities & Activities at Chateau Le Brevedent

Two playgrounds for children located where the children can play safely and it’s easy for you to supervise them.

You can also spend your day’s swimming in the two outdoor pools which are both heated. The first has massage jets and water mushrooms and a depth of up to 1.4m and a second is a more toddler proof pool that is 0.4m deep.

On site activities include canoeing, table tennis, five-a-side footie on grass, badminton, volley ball and boules. You can also fish in the site’s lake between 13 May and 2 September. More than enough choice there I think!

There is a traditional bar inside the Chateau where there is an animation concert on a Friday night (not Mickey Mouse, the on-site entertainment team silly). You can also hire all the bikes and all the biking accessories you could ever want.

If you want to sample the French way of life there is a weekly coach to Paris for the day – what trip to France would be complete without one? Windsurfing, canoeing and dingy sailing and dare I mention it QAUD BIKING can also be found less than 15 miles from camp site.

Normandy has many places to visit starting with the Bayeux Tapestry. A piece of Anglo-French history 900 years old and 70 metres long that tells the story of when the French beat (oh you know the story, I can’t bring myself to write it). The seaside resort of Deauville is the most glamorous resort in Northern France and has some really stunning beaches.

While you’re out and about keep your eye peeled for Calvados – the region’s special apple brandy. There are museums and distilleries all around – well worth a trip if only for a tipple. Further away is the fairy tale site of Mont St Michele – a seaside castle that is as pretty as, well a picture really! It’s also worth visiting the local markets so the kids can see that food doesn’t always come wrapped in plastic but remember the earlier you get there the better.

On site is a great restaurant serving local specialities with a more simple children’s menu. However, if you’re sticking with the barbecue then there is a minimarket to keep you supplied. During the day the kids will gravitate towards the snack bar with its sandwiches, salads and ice creams and the takeaway for fish and frites (never chips in France, always Frites) burgers, croque monsieur and pizzas.

    We arrived in the evening and staff allow us to choose our own spot, we opted for one the near the lake (don’t choose that area if you sleep walk).

    We usually cooked our own food but tried the restaurant our third night and then returned the fourth – delicious and affordable. The local area is blissful and great for walking, you can pickup a map from the reception. Pont l’evéque is a typical charming French town (where nobody speaks English) the local butcher there is highly recommended, the language barrier can be tricky but I’m sure he his well use to the English by now.

    Lots to do onsite for the kids including canoeing, tennis and generally just doing silly kid stuff, they’ll love it!
