Chateau MOnfreville Review – 2280-ARP
Onsite Facilities & Activities
We are bang smack in the middle of a national park which has far reaching views which are breathtaking. Our small camp site is situated at the back of our chateau where these views can be enjoyed fully. The bathrooms and wash up area are in the cellars of the chateau where original features have been kept. These facilities are second to none. Hot showers, quirky retro decorating and plenty of space for every-one. We have 2 large fridges so that you can chill down essentials, along with an array of fire pits which you can help yourselves too. A washing machine is available – just ask Zoe.
A natural swim pond is enjoyed by all ages as they swim with frogs and giant size lillies – no chemicals, just pure nature. A hot tub is also free to use along with bikes, ping pong, table football, babminton and many other out door games
There are lots of animals who like a being fed the odd baguette such as Bert the Donkey and his friend Hector who shouldn’t eat baguettes because he is on a permanant diet! Ducks, chickens, geese, kitty cats, a horse and pony, keeps us busy!
A comment made about our camp site last year was ”If Carlsberg did camping then this would be it”.
This is pure and simple camping at its very best with a few creature comforts added such as lovely showers and loos, no cars on the camp site & super kid friendly. Fergy our vintage tractor, ferry’s kids and luggage to the camp site all day everyday. The bread fairy also makes an appearance every morning delivering to your tent indulging pastries & bread which are ordered the night before.
We have 2 beautiful original gypsy vans which can both sleep 4 people in each. They have both been lovingly restored and have every creature comfort that you could want. A fully rquipped kitchen with all the pits and pans you could need, bed linen, towels, hammocks but to name a few.
There is buckets and buckets of things to do in this area. We are centrally postioned for all the D Day Landing beaches which are less than a half hour drive and simply beautfil. Beach actvities include sailing, yachting, land yachting, swimming etc and the odd sand castle making! Mont St Michel is an hours drive. Monet Gardens at Giverny, Bayeaux Tapestry, Memorial de Caen, Arromanches and 360 cinema and mulberry harbour. The aquarium in Cherbourg, town of where the Titanic left for its final voyage.
Normandy is also the bread basket of France where more food is produced than any other region. Spectacular sea food, cream, cheese, butter, cidre, calvados, apple juice, pommeau just to name a few! You won’t go home skinny, that’s for sure!
