Camping L’Anse du Brick
France, Normandy, Maupertus-sur-MerDirectly after Cherbourg a winding coast road begins leading around the bays and through small fishermen’s villages. Some of them made up their way to modest seaside resorts during the Belle Epoche but changed into sleeping beauties soon afterwards. This adds a relaxed cozyness to the coastline. Just ten kilometers after Cherbourg you turn right, go straight uphill and you’re there: The new LeadingCamping of the year 2020, Camping L’Anse du Brick, is made for nature loving, active holiday makers preferring smaller, more familiar campgrounds. The campsite has been nestled with great love and affection into a former quarry that over the years has been covered with lush green. This makes towering terraces with big pitches and unobstructed views to the sandy bay from any level. The bay can be accessed via a private pedestrian bridge directly from the premises. In the Eastern part the campground ends without any fence at a naturally preserved forest with a free running creek. Despite of all the nature around comfort is not in short supply: luxury pitches with private bathrooms are available as well as an open air and a covered swimming pool and two restaurants with different cuisine. Camping still is the main issue, compared to typical French campsites the number of rental homes is surprisingly low. Heated sanitary buildings are suitable for the long opening period from Easter into fall and also for the sometimes strong breeze from the sea. Outdoor and water sports lovers, nature friends and those especially interested in history are the best matching guests.
NormandyThe Cotentin peninsula is amazing, full of natural splendor and offers a healthy climate. It is a surprising discovery region. Between Caen to the East and Mont Saint Michel to the West the peninsula streches some 100 kilometers Northwest into the English Channel with its Northernmost city Cherbourg. That port offers excursions to the Channel islands or ferry services to England and Ireland.
