La Vallée, a 5-star campsite in Houlgate
It is in the outskirts of Houlgate, two steps from the beach resorts of Dives sur Mer and Cabourg and not even a ten-minute walk from the beach and the English Channel that we find camping La Vallée. This establishment, rated 5 star and a member of the Homair group, is one of the loveliest open-air holiday resorts in Calvados…
A campsite 900 metres from the beach
Less than a kilometre from the town centre and the beach of Houlgate, on a delightfully wooded and in bloom 12-hectare landscaped property, overlooking the seafront villas and the English Channel, the La Vallée campsite welcomes tourists in one of the most high-end holiday resorts in Calvados.
Campers coming here can stay in the heart of a more or less undulating park, offering here and there magnificent views of the open sea. In this park various buildings have been developed in the purest regional style, in particular with a great many half-timbered constructions offering leisure and accommodation facilities, and superb high-end rentals.
These rentals take the form of luxury mobile homes mobile homes, built on plots ranging from 180 m² to 220 m². Modern, they all feature a flat-screen TV and a terrace on which it is possible to have a meal or a drink with family or friends.
A real favourite on this 5-star campsite in Calvados, the water park of 1,200 m² consists of an outdoor pool of 230 m², a paddling pool of 50 m², an indoor, heated swimming pool of 145 m² (with its paddling pool) and a three-lane water slide. There is also a balneo area with massaging jets, and a whirlpool bath with the capacity for 20 people. A sunbathing area of 800 m² has been developed so that swimmers can enjoy the sun as soon as they come out of the water!
Other leisure and sports facilities of La Vallée include a regulation-sized football field, a beach volleyball field, two jeu-de-boules courts, a stunt bike circuit, a tennis court, two playgrounds with no less than fifteen games to climb and swing, table tennis tables, an arcade games room and a billiards room.
During the season, hosts are in charge to organize many activities, for children as well as for adults. Thus, it is not rare that guests can participate in archery sessions, climbing initiations or yet diving baptisms in the pool. In the evening, various concerts and events make the nights more lively on the La Vallée campsite...
For an unforgettable stay in Normandy
A quintessential luxury campsite, La Vallée does not only rely upon its comfort and the quality of its facilities to appeal to tourists. The proximity to the seaside, the beach of Houlgate and the seaside resorts of Dives sur Mer and Cabourg are also real attractions, as well as its geographical location that offers guests the chance to easily reach many other tourist sights in Normandy...
Thus, it only takes around a ten-minute walk to reach the huge sandy beach of Houlgate, the pearl of the Côte Fleurie, considered to be one of the most beautiful beach resorts of the Normandy coast. Along the sea, beautiful buildings and villas, dating mostly from the beginning of the last century, form a postcard scenery that is really nice to admire from the beach.
The beach is the theatre of many fun and water activities. The vast majority of tourists come here to swim, relax in the sun and let the children play and build sand castles, but others can practise water skiing, wake boarding, kayaking, stand up paddle, etc. You can register at the Houlgate sailing school to get the hang of sailing on an optimist, a dinghy, a catamaran or try out windsurfing.
Respectively located at 3.7 and 5.2 kilometres from campsite La Vallée, the beach resorts of Dives sur Mer and Cabourg are also worth a walk and why not, make a stop at the casino! A bit further, the D-Day beaches are a highly recommended must-see. Around here you can visit many museums, memorials, military cemeteries and other traces of this era, allowing you to learn more about the events of D-Day...
