We stayed just one night at this campsite on our way down to Brittany. It's in a beautiful little part of Normandy. I had booked a pitch with Sharon, the owner, before we arrived and upon arrival the campsite was quiet. The area is a small field with a couple of chickens running around which my 8 yr old loved with a field next door with a horse and donkey. It's very peaceful ! There's two toilets and two showers along with a washing machine. All kept very clean. Sharon made us feel very welcome and we opted for the ' camping and breakfast ' which was delightful. We dined in her conservatory on croissant, pan au chocolate, cereal and a full English ! A great start to the day for our journey ahead. The site feels like its completely in the middle of no where but it's actually not far out from a local town ( 6 km or so ) where we dined in the evening. We would definitely stop again.

Sharon is a great host, toilets and showers very clean, great surroundings, love the horse, donkey and chickens. If you want to the stars at night it's unforgettable.

We are from the seaham north of England and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Thankyou.

We stayed here en route to the Tour de France, cycling down from the ferry at Caen we arrived rather exhausted and in need of rest and refreshment! Big hills in Normandy? Who knew! (They never seemed that big in the car!)

We booked up via this website 6 months prior to our trip and Sharon was very prompt with her correspondence and answered any queries we had.

On arrival we were eager to get pitched as it looked like rain was imminent, and Sharon brought us tea and coffee before offering us a lift to the village to the local bar/tabac where she had booked a table for us. She offered us a lift back but we decided to walk back for a bit of fresh air.

The site itself is quite basic but has everything a touring cyclist might need. We pitched along side the hedge which offered protection from the wind and rain. Showers and toilets were all fine, there was a washing machine but we were on day 1 of our trip so didn't need to use it.

We'd paid in advance for the full-English breakfast which was superb. No shortage of toast, cereal or coffee before the full breakfast arrived.

Sharon is a super host, really friendly and really goes the extra mile, on what is a super quiet campsite at the end of a farm track. The bar/tabac in the near by village is a gem of a restaurant with free wifi too!

If ever I'm in the part of Normandy again, I'd be sure to stay at La Porte.

Stayed at Camping La Porte on 2 occasions as a stopover from and to the Ferry. Chris and Sharon could not have been more welcoming and accomadating. Arrived close to midnight on the outward journey due to a Ferry delay then needed their help to jump start the camper at 6 in the morning on the outward journey. A nice site that is well equipped and run by really nice people. The campers breakfast is a must have and great value. Thanks Chris and Sharon.

We caravanned here for a single night as a stop over from Dunkirk ferry to southern Brittany, we booked via email and got prompt and friendly replies from the site owner.

The site was easy to find although we followed sat nav via single track lanes but would have been much better taking slightly longer route via the local town. There was carefour and fuel close by, so perfect as a stop over site.

Chris was very welcoming on our arrival and after pointing out the best pitches for us, left us to set up after giving us directions to the town and supplies.

The site is well maintained and very level if you manoeuvre on the levelest sections.

We booked for the full cooked breakfast as the lazy option to our second day's drive to our final destination which was a great decision. The breakfast was really good with as much juice, tea and coffee as Sharon could make while chatting to Chris about their move to running a campsite in France and his many years playing in a band.

A great site with lovely owners and well worth a visit, even if it's only short like ours.

Just returned from France and used La Porte for a stop over for the outward and return journey. The site is a quite and tranquil site ideal to unwind and recharge your batteries. The hosts Sharon and Chris made us most welcome and have thought of all the little extras you might need, have even installed a sky run TV in there information hut. Intend to stay a little longer when travelling through Normandy in the future.
