Stayed 4 nights here in July 2015.

Pitches are spacious and the site overall is tidy and clean. However I think that the toilet, shower and washing facilities are now rather dated and looking a bit tired. They seemed to have been a bit of a DIY job some years ago and not updated since.

Pool and poolside is very clean. Didn't use the bar or restaurant.

Quite a lot of the site seemed to be given over to long term caravan storage in the field next to the main site.

Most occupants appeared to be from the UK.

Unfortunately seemed to me to be a plethera of notices telling us what we should and shouldn't do. Perhaps a more customer friendly wording could / should be used.

Good little site in a good location for lots of Normandy attractions.

Positive:

* Emplacements are well kept and spacious with electricity (French socket) on each emplacement.

* Great location for Normandy beaches, Bayeux Tapestry, Abbeys and castles

* very quiet

Negatives

* Signage. Although entirely in English I was reprimanded fairly sternly for going through a path which was allegedly private. I was told to go through the bar/pool area. However, the path I took had no sign on it at all and looked like a path that could be taken. The entrance to the bar/pool area had a sign 'ENTRANCE ONLY TO BAR POOL AREA' (my capitals) make of that what you will, but I was shocked and felt chided

* The site is very English

* facilities are dated but nevertheless clean

* expensive compared to the campsite we had come

* wifi very weak

Lovely little rural campsite set off the main road. Peace and tranquility abound out of season. With only a handful of pitches taken and the sun shining this site is superb. Not to be missed are the bright shining stars at night. With minimal light pollution the sky is awesome on a clear night. Didn't use pool so can't comment or the restaurant as it did not open being out of season. Facilities all seem a bit tired and in need of a makeover but the serenity and security you feel when staying here makes up for it. Stayed 3 nights and would not hesitate to go back. If you are looking for an oasis of calm out of season, look no further

Owners were very welcoming and were always there to help. No shop as such on site, you could order croissants and bread for morning. There was a supermarket nearby so not too bad.

Nice campsite, pitches were flat, well kept and had hedges around them, so you had your own little space. Water, electric points nearby. Facilities were OK, bit dated, but clean enough. Had disabled shower and toilet, but was in a large building which also housed the fridge/freezer for everyone to use! You could lock door, but seemed bit strange and no seat on toilet, so was a bit uncomfortable! There was a small pool and small children's playground, which got full quick. Small restaurant/bar which had a mainly 'british' menu. Campsite is in a rural area and there were chickens wandering around which was amusing, especially when the BBQ's were out!

Near to Bayeux which is home of Bayeux Tapestry museum, British/Commonwealth memorial museum and cemetery and I think a couple of other art museums which we didn't get to go to. We visited American memorial cemetery and that wasn't far. The D Day landing beaches at Normandy are nearby too. There were quite a few things going on regarding WW1 & WW2 with it being the 100th year of WW1 and the 70th year of D Day landings of WW2. There were a few markets in the towns and some morning fish markets, these were advertised on campsite noticeboard.

Overall nice experience on this campsite and it is near to all the war memorial stuff and the towns. Also quite near to nice beaches.

This was our first trip abroad with our caravan and our first trip to Normandy. Camping Le Picard is ideally placed in a lovely rural setting with lots of country lanes which were perfect for us to cycle along. It is also near to the Forest of Cerisy where there are numerous footpaths and tracks for walking & cycling. The Normandy beaches are about 40 minutes drive away and the historic town of Bayeux is about 10 miles from the site. The site itself is beautifully maintained and is a nice size with plenty of space allocated to each plot. We backed on to a cornfield on one side and a field of sheep - plus a donkey! - on the other. Facilities are clean and ample although we were there in September when it was fairly quiet. The heated swimming pool was very welcome and was always kept beautifully clean. There is a restaurant on site which served good meals and drinks every evening throughout our stay and bread & croissants can be ordered daily. The owners were excellent hosts and always available. We will certainly be back again!

This is an excellent site; small only 33 pitches so very relaxing and peaceful (pitches were on the large side), we stayed 14 nights and could find no faults whatsoever. The hosts were truly relaxed and nothing seemed to much trouble. Hedges are provided around every pitch with electricity available - plenty of rubbish and recycling bins were provided. Wi-Fi was free, and although a little sporadic had a good signal and was more than adequate. Bread and croissants were available daily at reception. There is a heated swimming pool with beds and chairs/tables. We used the restaurant only once and it was very nice. Sanitary facilities were all available, showers/toilets/washing-up/washing/wash-hand basins, and although not four-star were more than adequate and they were clean and tidy. We paid 355euro for 14 nights (so 25euros per night all in), we were happy with this. Whilst there we visited Monet's Garden, Bayeux, the D-Day landing beaches. Mont St Michel and loads of other stuff, there really is loads to see and do in this area.
