About Castel Camping Le Brévedent
Tents, campervans, caravans, large groups, young groups – yes. Dogs – no.
What could be better than a ramble or cycle through gentle, rolling fields full of sturdy cattle and traditional, timbered Normandy farmhouses? Each camper is given a map detailing 3 local walks. Hire a pony from the horse-riding centre 1⁄2 mile (1 km) away. Or, for wilder animal thrills, go on safari at Parc Zoologique Cerza, which has 700 animals including tigers, alligators, and a rare Indian rhinoceros. Pont-l’Évêque 6 miles (10 km) away, which retains period charm despite taking a pounding in the Second World War. Apart from being home to a deliciously stinky cheese, the restored Mont St-Michel cathedral is worth a look. Art fans love the picturesque port of Honfleur, 151⁄2 miles (25 km) away.
Food & Drink
Thursday is the day for foodies, starting with the morning market in Blangy-le-Château. It might be small, but it’s incredibly charming and has a fine fish van selling oysters and mussels. Soak up the atmosphere and treat yourself to a coffee or cassis in the bar-tabac opposite. On Thursday afternoon the campsite organises a trip to Les Bruyères Carrées, a small distillery, which produces top-notch Calvados and cider. For a fancy meal head 1 mile (2 km) further along D140 to the delightful Le Mesnil-sur- Blangy, where Le Restaurant de la Galerie (00 33 2 31 64 77 13) serves seasonal food (foie gras €14, duck €19) and doubles as an art gallery. Check out the cows at Ferme Spruytte (00 33 2 31 64 71 99), which makes and sells the local Pont-l’Évêque cheese. It’s walking distance along D284.
Castel Camping Le Brévedent is located at 241 Route du Pin, 14130 Le Brévedent, Calvados, France
