5 places not to be missed around our campsite by the sea in Calvados
Discover ten must-see sites to discover Calvados and the diversity of its landscapes.
The Old Basin of Honfleur
This small, colourful town inspired so many Impressionist painters! It’s hard not to fall in love with the tall houses that surround the Vieux Bassin. Stroll through the Jardin des personnalités, and walk to the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce church for an unobstructed view of Honfleur.
Colleville-sur-Mer American Cemetery
Discover an Olympian setting for the repose of heroes. Overlooking the immense beach of Omaha Beach, the Normandy American Cemetery is home to the graves of 9,387 American soldiers who fell in the Battle of Normandy. The sight of these white marble headstones, lined up as far as the eye can see, is an emotional one.
The Basilica of Lisieux
Built on a hill overlooking Lisieux and the second most popular place of pilgrimage in France after Lourdes, the site attracts the whole world! The basilica is astonishing for its composite style. Often compared to the Sacré-Coeur in Paris, it is one of the largest churches built in the 20th century.
The medieval city of Bayeux
Bayeux will charm you with its cobbled streets, timber-framed houses and private mansions. A city of culture and history, the small medieval town is known worldwide for its cathedral, an architectural jewel. As well as its 11th century tapestry.
The boards of Deauville
Embark on a 643-metre long, 7-metre wide promenade, where the celebrities of the Deauville American Film Festival stroll in September. The Deauville Boards, made of a rot-proof exotic wood, used to allow ladies to walk on the long sandy beach without dirtying their dresses.
