Scotland on Sunday travel
Facilities included three swimming pools (one covered), five flumes, a restaurant/bar, a well stocked Canada Goose sale (and reasonably priced) canada goose on black friday shop, a pizza takeaway and a kids club.
Volleyball and football pitches, two play parks, a bouncy castle and even some ponies were added to the list, all set high on a hillside in swathes of well kept grass.
The campsite was busy, even though the canada goose gilet uk sale English school holidays had yet https://www.londonbc.co.uk to start, and was made up canada goose langford black friday mainly of French, Dutch and British canada goose birmingham uk holidaymakers, many of the former making their way from Paris for a seaside holiday in this chic region.
The Eurocamp staff were helpful and well informed, making for a pleasant welcome. All good so far.
We had opted for a two bed static caravan from Eurocamp’s budget friendly «classic» range. It was deceptively roomy and served its purpose well, with an outdoor decking area (equipped with gas barbecue) and all the essentials expected for a self catering holiday. This included a fridge/freezer, hob/oven, microwave and kettle.
The «classic» range is perhaps older and with its slightly tired, canada goose shop new york dated features, many holidaymakers would probably wish to opt for one of the more modern caravans.
The Eurocamp range is vast not forgetting its spectacular, all equipped safari tents so depending on budget, taste and size requirements there is undoubtedly something to suit all happy campers.
For us, with three young children, the classic two bed (one room with a single and bunk beds, the other a double) did its job, and canada goose womens outlet with a shower/toilet, and sitting/dining area was preferable to canvas for our first Eurocamp experience.
After canada goose shop uk finding our feet on the first day, including popping to the nearby town of Dives sur Mer to the Intermarch supermarket to stock up on supplies, we soon sketched a loose canada goose outlet toronto address to do list and got into a workable rhythm.
Late afternoons/evenings were spent on the campsite, with our preference being to explore the surrounding Normandy area canada goose outlet for the bulk of the day.
This worked well, with the outdoor pools proving refreshing after a canada goose uk sale black friday day in the sun, and the fun of some al fresco dining on the decking to look forward to later on.
While the campsite had a lot to offer, both during the day and in the evening (mainly in the bar for people without three young children) there was a strict policy of quiet from 11pm. This curfew added to the general respectful canada goose jacket outlet mood about the site among campers, including the many pitched tenters, caravanners and campervanners who were dotted around the cheap canada goose jackets uk statics. Ten out of ten so far.
One of our first day trips out of the campsite, and one we repeated several times, was into Houlgate where we spent hours on the glorious beach, in the sea, picnicking, making sandcastles, collecting shells and playing bat and ball.
Its Promenade Roland Garros was spectacular, lined with striped beach huts and magnificent period properties overlooking the sea.
With a typically relaxed French feel, the beach was immaculate and just a 20 minute walk from the campsite, taking us through the town centre with its markets, restaurants and boutiques.
Much like the beach, with its pristine white sands, diligent lifeguards and regular announcements advising of tides/temperatures, attention to detail was not lacking in the town canada goose chateau parka black friday centre with canada goose warranty uk its tidy flower beds and a general feeling of pride.
This was felt in all the beautiful coastal towns we managed canada goose outlet to explore, most notably Deauville, Villers sur Mer and Honfleur.
The latter, with a harbour lined with eye catching 16th century townhouses, will most definitely be visited again by yours truly. As will the D Day landing beaches and museums which deserve several return trips to do them justice.
We made an unforgettable trip to Sword Beach (one of the five main landings areas) and to the Pegasus Bridge in Ranville, which was a major objective for the Allied forces. The bridge’s museum captured the imagination canada goose trousers uk of my eldest children and has been spoken and read up on in great detail on our return to Scotland.
