Beaumont Sur Sarthe. Between Alencon and Le Mans.
I have included this link as the website is only in French. We love this site and have been staying here for years. Great as an overnighter, but we have also stayed for over a week. The town has most of what you need and is a two minute walk. There is cheap and easy petrol at the Super U at the top of the town and loads of places for food shopping. Having a meal out, is a bit tricker as many places are closed in the week, but the Hotel de Ville is reasonable!
Really clean toilet facilities and spacious pitches. A long electric lead is needed. Great children's playing area and motorhome service point. The showers are really good and the toilet block is always really clean. We have never booked here but always managed to get a space. One of the cheapest but best sites we have found.
Plenty of space for our trailer.
Fishing can be done by the river.
The river is beautiful, especially first thing in the morning! We usually camp on the inside pitches to avoid "bitey" things.
St Nicholas. Le Bec Hellouin. Near Rouen
This link says it all really! Again, we have stayed here so many times. The site is in a beautiful spot and you can walk through the woods to the village down a really steep hill ( directions from Monsieur.) Avoid 12 -3pm, Monsieur & Madam have a snooze! You can park at reception until they open up. We have always managed to get a pitch here amongst the apple trees! This is a nice area of France and worth spending a few days. Facilities are brilliant.
Camping Les Erables, Wissant near Calais
If we are travelling back via Calais, we always stay the last night at this site. You do need to arrive in the morning, midday at the latest as the site can be very busy. If you can speak a little French, you could ring and book. We usually walk into the village and have a meal at one of the hotels as our last night treat! A basic site but good, clean and not too expensive. Brilliant for walkers! This site is around 45mins from Calais, if you are leaving early Monsieur, will open the gate early for you.
Le Serpoline. Loire near Doue La Fountaine
We have stayed here many times. Very friendly English owners and pitches for around 6 units. Hard standing available and open all year round. A beautiful part of the country but you do need transport, as the shopping facilities are a good drive away. The toilet block is simple but clean and there are indoor washing sinks.
There is a gite available and a small but refreshing plunge pool for hot days.
One of the two large fields.
