Caen Ferryport

Post by Hubert on Wed Apr 27, 2016 8:13 am

Hi
Can anyone recommend a campsite very near the port of Caen (Ouistreham).
We have a sailing booked in June for return at 08:00 (approx.), so need to be there at 07:00. As some sites have barriers locked until 08:00, don't want to get locked in.
Don't really want to spend the night at the port.

Haven't used it ourselves, but have read a number of posts in the past on other forums recommending Les Pommiers.  Apparently it is now called La Riva Bella.  There are reviews on UK Campsite here:   http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/reviews.asp?revid=3858

Sorry, I don't knowhow to do a link here.  Apparently it has new owners, and previous owners weren't very friendly from what I've read.  But just for an overnighter it seems adequate.

Edited to say that the link is there, without having to do anything - unlike on another forum!

Villers Bocage on the A.84 to the west of Caen, is about half an hour from the ferry terminal.    The aire is in the town centre on the perimeter of a roundabout, with a park behind.       Delightful place.



If you google it, you will see some photos.

Thanks Bob and TravelKat up!

Both are good possibilities, will check them on the way out.
Certainly can't get much closer than La Riva Bella.

Thanks again
