A pleasant site in a very beautiful location. Although the site is uneven find the right pitch and all is good.

2min walk to the village and river walks.

Will stop there again if visiting the area.

Great site very friendly and helpful English owners, nothing was to much trouble for them. Happy to give advise on places of interest, Very well placed for Mont St Michael.

As the site wasn't full we had a good choose of pitches, the site is reasonable compact but well served with spotless toilets & showers,

it even had a washing machine & dryer.

We only booked for 2 nights but will stop longer next time.

This is an excellent caravan/camp site situated close to the River Salune in a very quiet position but convenient for the main A84. We initially stopped for one night after getting off the afternoon ferry at Caen but ended up staying 3 nights as it was so peaceful and then returned again at the end of our holiday.

There are good spacious and sunny pitches around an open grassed area on which an excellent sanitary block is situated with plenty of showers (hot water) and washing facilities all of which are kept very clean throughout the day.

The owner David and his partner Vanessa are extremely friendly and give excellent advice for places to visit in the area etc. The site takes motorhomes, caravans and tents, it is slightly sloping so levelling blocks are needed but this is not a problem and there are loads of electric and water points. Wifi is also available on site which is a plus for such a rural site and there is a small children's play area.

We visited Mont St Michel and Avranches whilst we were there, it is possible to cycle along the river estuary to Avranches. This is a lovely cycle ride, with views across to the Mont but a very steep hill at the end into Avranches! We were also lucky enough to be at this site when the Tour de France passed through the village which was very exciting.

The village has a bakery which we used and a couple of restaurants which were not open whilst we were there; good supermarkets and discount fuel is available close by.

There are essentials sold on site (milk etc) and the wine and beer is very reasonable sitting in the small bistro area by the reception is a must on a warm evening.

We found the site very friendly and convenient and can highly recommend it both as a stop over and for extended stays we will be back.

Used this site as a one night stopover travelling from Cherbourg to Vendee. It suited our needs perfectly. It was only a couple of minutes away from the main road but wasn't noisy or busy.

British owners allowed us to choose our own pitch, most of which had a degree of slope. Toilet block was clean and functional. Owner a stickler for recycling but I think its a result of local fines for non compliance.

The village looks a bit of a one horse town with little open, but 28th june was still pre high season.

Took the dog a pleasant walk alongside the nearby river Selune.

Certainly would use it again for a similar stopover.

Stopped here off plan after caught in heavy traffic accident from Cherbourg. Lovely little site pick your own pitch, grass nicely cut.

Dave the owner is very friendly and helpful Facilities very clean, easy walk down to the river. Didn't try the town but could see a couple of restaurants open.

Decided to stay another night as its so peaceful.

Stopped the one night when we got off the ferry in Cherboug, a very easy stop over when travelling. Site was very quiet as early season, lovely owner on check in. Nice grass site with small kids play area. 1 minute walk into town, the restaurant was shut even in a Friday night but the little tabac was open so had a few beers. Bakery in village also.

Can't say much else as we moved on early, would recommend as a great stop over for the ease of somewhere.

We called in here on our way to Brittany. Initially for 1 night following the reviews off this site. It was everything we could ask for. Quiet clean friendly WiFi beautiful setting there's a little park for the little ones loads of help of the owner. We had just come from a site near Juno beach in Normandy which was a bit poor. Dave the owner was so friendly. We had our pick of pitches so chose one at the top of the site. First night we called into the booking office where Dave sold cold bottles of beer for a euro. We ended up sitting there all night with Dave and his wife drinking beer. Brilliant. We decided to stay a couple more nights and the next night was pizza night. Family made pizzas from Dave for a third the price of the last site. There isn't much to do in the village and 1 of the restaurants was shut. This in their high season ! But the site is not far from the major supermarkets and just off the motorway. Its a good bike ride to the mount. If this site was in the lake district it would be packed every night all season. But its just far enough out that its a gem. Dave said ' everyone who comes here comes back ' see you soon Dave.

So. The site is our favourite type, semi-rural, near enough to interesting places, with easy access to shopping. Vallee de la Selune is ideally situated for off ferry folk heading north or south. The main road is viewable from the site as is the railway. (I suspect Dave has a deal with the railroad, no trains through the night!)

The site is English owned, Dave has been there for 17 years (I think he said). It is set on a slight hill, so you may need leveling triangles. If possible, you are invited to choose your own pitch. The shop as has been said before stocks the basics, plus it carries information on places of interest in the surrounding area. The sanitary facilities are clean and some of the toilets have seats! There is a washing machine and a dryer.

We will return as I said, it's our type of site, clean, quiet, tidy and convenient.

Reviewer: Wanderer532 1 review from this member

The site is an orchard site with a modern toilet block, mostly open pitches and a few mobile homes. There is a small shop in the site office for basics, like wine and bread. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful, he speaks German, French and English and will go out of his way to assist. The site is close to the Selune river and fishing permits can be obtained.

The village has good facilities, having two good restaurants, a friendly bar, small grocery shop and a butchers.

The medieval town of Avranches with excellent shopping is a few minutes drive away and Le Mont St Michel is not far. Ferry ports (St Malo, Cherbourg and Caen) are within easy reach as the village is adjacent to A84.

We have visited many times in the last 10 years and are always impressed with the welcome and would recommend the site especially for first time visitors to France.

We have stopped at Camping Vallee De La Selune at Pontaubault several times on our way further south. We have used it as a stopover following the afternoon Poole/Cherborg sailing. The site is small but spacious with a few statics and the pitches are all 'open plan'. Toilets are spotlessly clean and the site generally very tidy. The proprietor is English and always very helpful. He keeps basic requirements on site but there is a small village shop which is open 'all hours' a minute or so walk from the entrance.There is also a small bar and patio area adjacent to the reception. It is only a couple of minutes off the A84 close to Avranches and very easy to get back onto again to continue in either direction.We have always said that one day we will stay longer and explore the area more as it is handy for Mont St Michel and St Malo and also the town of Avranches.
