Camping pitch - in the grounds of a Château in beautiful Normandy

The Owner Says

Camp Monfreville is good old fashioned camping at its best! Great pitches, fabulous views with just the great outdoors & nothing added. There are no cars allowed on the campsite so that there is a true outdoor feeling with nature & children can roam freely playing with the animals and new found friends. Cars are parked up in our orchard once you have unloaded your clobber onto the campsite.

July & August mornings see The Bread Fairy delivering delicious croissants, pain au chocolats and baguettes to your tent. Thursday evenings is a cracking social event where the best Moules Frites is served in our party barn and juicy whole roast chickens on Sunday’s. There is an honesty shop with homemade jams, charcoal, wood, marshmallows & all the little essentials you may need along with a washing machine.

Enjoy our hot-tub & natural swimming pond after a day of exploring Normandy or play ping pong or go for a bike ride or just sit back & relax. We love camp fires. You can either bring your own or we have fire pits which you can help yourself too.Hot showers, loos and a wash up area are situated in the cellars of the chateau. There are fridges &  freezers available. Free WIFI and charging points.

We have a maximum of 25 tents at any one time. We absolutely promise to never be overcrowded.

About Le Château de Monfréville

Suitable For

Tents, glampers, large groups (on request), families – yes. Caravans, motorhomes, campervans, dogs – no.


Le Château de Monfréville, though a small château by French standards, makes up for it with extensive gardens and a prime position overlooking the Regional Nature Park of Cotentin and Bessin (0033 233 716 190). It is centrally located for Utah and Omaha Beach (20 minutes drive), with fascinating museums and miles of sandy beaches. Utah Beach Museum (+33 233 719 236), the Omaha Beach Memorial Museum (+33 231 219 744) and the Bayeux War Cemetery are perhaps the most poignant of insights into D-Day and the Second World War. The charming medieval town of Bayeux is home to the famous 11th-century tapestry, listed as a “Memory of the World” by UNESCO. Mont St Michel (0033 233 601 430) is an hour's drive, as is Giverny, the home of Monet's Gardens (0033 232 512 821). There's a cheese factory (0033 231 513 333) and (separate) caramel factory (0033 231 516 650) in the local town of Isigny, while the local tourist office here is also a decent starting point to discovering the area.

Probably the best campsite I've been at. Beautiful location with swallows flying over head and bats at night, beautiful pool perfect for kids. Stones throw from beautiful beaches and fantastic hosts - couldn't ask for more

The best week ever

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week and had an incredible time. The campsite is so peaceful and set in a beautiful location. The facilities inside the chateau were brilliant. Loved getting our morning baguettes and pastries. And LOVED Mungo the cat. Already planning our return visit.

A magical place

What a special place. We spent a wonderful week at Chateau Monfreville and loved every minute. You get the best of both worlds, camping in such a peaceful, unspoilt location, with the benefits of lovely showers and delicious food. Not to mention the swimming pool and last but not least the wonderful owners. We will be back!!

Normandy's Little Slice Of Heaven

Just returned from an absolutely delightful stay at Le Chateau de Monfreville. Everything you want from a campsite. Brilliant relaxed hosts including the bread fairy, great facilities which were well maintained and all in a beautiful setting. Couldn't ask for better. We stayed for 5 days to tour around Normandy by car & bike, enjoyed both the pizza night and moules & frites night that were put on by hosts Paul & Zoe, both of which I can highly recommend and ended up being some of the highlights of our trip. Toured to Isigny, Omaha, Grandcamp Maisey & The German cemetery all of which are close by as well as a trip to Mont Saint Michel but it was always lovely to get back to the chateau for a full on relax (either round the pool & hot tub or just soaking up the natural surroundings. By the way coming from London the sky at night is amazing with no light pollution whatsoever. Shout out to Zoe for the apricot jam & the warm hospitality of excellent hosts. Everything was just perfect. If you're planning on being in the area I can't recommend it enough.

Excellent campsite

Had a wonderful stay at this lovely place - amazing facilities, location and hosts. Would love to come back again and highly recommend to everyone.

Getting There

Sat Nav coordinates: N49.18.717 / W001.02.584

From Calais take the A16 towards Boulogne. The road divides near Boulogne and you must continue on the A16 NOT the N42 to Paris. Near Abbeyville the road divides again. Take the A28 towards Le Havre and then over the Pont de Normandie (bridge). After the bridge follow the signs to Caen (N13) and then Bayeux. After Bayeux take the turn-off to La Cambe(D113). At the stop sign turn left, at the roundabout take the 3rd turning to Monfreville. Drive over 4 small bridges and after the last one take the 2nd turning to the right. Campsite is about 1/2 mile on the right hand side. Ignore the exit Monfreville sign as it is a bit further on and don't take the left turn to the church.

From Caen/Ouistraham follow the road towards Caen and take the turn-off to Bayeux and Cherbourg (N13). Remain on the N13 for approx 20minutes past Bayeux and take the turn-off to La Cambe(D113). At the stop sign turn left, at the roundabout take the 3rd turning to Monfreville. Drive over 4 small bridges and after the last one take the 2nd turning to the right. Campsite is about 1/2 mile on the right hand side. Ignore the exit Monfreville sign as the site is a bit further on and don't take the left turn to the church.

From Cherbourg follow the signs towards Caen & St Lo (N13). Take the turn off for Isigny sur Mer & D5 which is after Carentan. At the stop/give way sign turn right and then immediately left to Monfreville (5km). Follow the signs to Monfreville (not the Mairie) and you will find the chateau at the top of the hill on the left.

The nearest train station is Lison about 11km away. It is a direct train to and from Paris (2hrs). There are no bus facilities in the area so a car is essential to get around or a bike.
