The 4* Camping Domaine de Litteau is a rural retreat in Calvados, Lower Normandy, so if you like the quiet life then this campsite is for you and it boasts a covered pool with plenty of facilities and loads of space for you to chill out. OK, there is no beach on the doorstep but there are plenty around should you wish to make sand castles and swim in the sea..
There is also a covered paddling pool at Camping Domaine de Litteau for the younger ones, a football pitch, a couple of playgrounds, a games area, a Kids Club and a bar complete with pool table.
One thing you will notice immediately you arrive at Domaine de Litteau is that the staff there are all very friendly and speak excellent English so you won’t have to feel embarrassed if your French isn’t up to par.
Away from the campsite you won’t have to travel far to reach the WW11 D-Day Landing Beaches which are roughly 30 minutes away, and if you like to throw some history into the mix then you could pop off to see a few of the medieval towns hereabouts and also the Bayeux Tapestry which was in fact made by English seamstresses as they were far better at sewing than the French at that time.
The Dover/Calais route is the quickest, taking just 90 minutes. Or, if you’re visiting Normandy, you could head for the ports of Cherbourg or Caen. Leaving from Portsmouth, the Cherbourg route is serviced by smaller, faster ferries and takes about three hours. The ferry to Caen takes a more leisurely six hours but takes you closer to the middle of France.
