Camping Le Puits is a quiet family run campsite in the village of St Martin des Besaces offering camping / caravanning and Bed & Breakfast. Perfectly situated for exploring the undulating picturesque countryside, tasting renowned cheeses, sampling sparkling cider and of course, the famous Calvados.
Once a working farmstead, the grounds (9 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 4 elegantly decorated en-suite rooms providing comfortable Bed & Breakfast accommodation with pleasant views.
**** PETS PASSPORT **** We accept domestic pets on the camp site (not in the B&B), so long as they are kept on a lead at all times. There is a vet in the village capable of dealing with the necessary injections and paperwork etc. for return to the UK.
****IF YOU ARE A "NEWBIE"***** (i.e. first time driving or camping / caravanning on the continent) you will find us welcoming with ENGLISH spoken. Ferry ports are within easy access and we can assist you with any issues you may encounter in a new foreign environment.
So, GO ON! give France a try this season with us here at Camping le Puits.
