We wish Peter and Fran well for their furure retirement. They have run the campsite since arriving from Ireland in July 2006.
Once a working farmstead, the grounds (11 acres) have been re-designed with 30 large individually marked pitches, hedges, apple trees and borders overlooking lush green fields. The farmhouse, which has been tastefully renovated, retains its country charm with pleasant views.
Originaly run and started by Barry and Marie-Louise Ashworth for 13 years.
We thank you both.
Now called Sous Les Étoiles, “Under The Stars”, the campsite is in the village of St Martin des Besaces, Calvados, offering camping and caravanning. Perfectly situated for exploring the undulating picturesque countryside, tasting renowned cheeses, sampling sparkling cider and of course, the famous Calvados.
To the North of St Martin des Besaces are the D-Day Landing Beaches, where they will be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the landings, and Bayeux with its famous tapestry.
To the South is the historic and pretty village of Domfront, within Normandy's large regional park. To the East in Suisse Normand (little Switzerland) is Clécy with a miniature railway and the River Orne for canoeing and fishing. To the West lies the breathtaking Le Mont St Michel and the beaches along the Cotentin shoreline.
Within the village, there is a Museum dedicated to the liberation of the Bocage Region and for the more adventurous - nearby Bungy Jumping.
We accept domestic pets on the camp site, so long as they are kept on a lead at all times. There is a veterinary practice close to the village capable of dealing with the necessary injections for return to the UK.
Steve and Dawn offer all visitors a warm, friendly welcome and endeavour to make your visit to Normandy as enjoyable and memorable as possible..
For 26 years my career has been spent working in the film business. In the past I have also enjoyed Motorsport, in particular racing a Jaguar 6 litre XJS car and became British Champion in 2003.
Most of my career has been spent in the hospitality trade. From waiting tables to Catering Manager, I have always enjoyed enhancing the customer experience. I look forward to welcoming you to our campsite.
We would welcome all new and past guests to try the new facilities and changes especially the new sanitary and shower area.
Looking forward to seeing everyone to try out our new menu and bar.
