FERRY & CHALETS
Camping Falaises, Gonneville sur Mer
France > Normandy > GONNEVILLE SUR MER
This pleasant 8.5 hectare campsite (450 pitches) is in a great location overlooking the sea along the Falaises des Vaches Noires, a 6k stretch of cliffs which are perfect for coastal walks with panoramic views. Facilities include a large outdoor heated pool, giant waterslides and evening entertainment in Jul/Aug. Pets must be kept on a lead.
The seaside resort of Houlgate (4k) on the pretty Côte Fleurie coastline has kept its 'Belle Epoque' charm and has plenty to offer including a watersports centre and a children's beach club (trampoline, zip wire). The larger and more stylish Deauville has a wide sandy beach backed by the 1920s promenade 'Les Planches' which is great for summer strolls. Don't miss the lively Sunday morning market at neighbouring Trouville to pick up a bargain or two, then maybe have lunch in one of the many good restaurants.
