La Vallee Holiday Park
La Vallee campsite is probably one of the best available in Normandy. It’s in a lovely rural setting, very close to a sandy beach and the seaside town of Houlgate. The park opens for chalet guests between 28th April and 9th September with guests staying in tents welcome between 5th May and 28th September. The gardens are very pretty with lots greenery and plenty of fruit trees. In short this is an ideal location for any family looking to explore what France has to offer.
The camp site Reception is situated in the Norman style country house and here you’ll find friendly staff happy to talk to you in English but they’ll love it even more if you give your French a quick airing. If you’re worried about leaving the dog at home then don’t. Just pack him up with the kids and away you go, he’s quite welcome here. The camp features 353 pitches so as a medium sized camp has lots of the facilities you’d expect.
If you’re looking for a back to nature experience then going under canvass at La Vallee will really fit the bill. Two or three bedrooms with separate kitchen and living areas mean you’ll be able to set up a family home from home in no time. Tent canvasses, inside and out, are all newly replaced for 2012 and the new designs allow you to open up your tents during the day to really get close to the French countryside.
La Vallee has a good selection of comfortable chalets with all the facilities you’ll need for your French Odyssey. Whether you’re looking for two or three bedroomed they all have outside space and on the inside cosy bathrooms and separate cooking and living space. Oven, gas hob, fridge/freezer and microwave are all part of the deal (but sorry no dishwasher) so self catering should actually be more like home from home.
