Hi, We are planning to have a week's holiday in Normandy-probably the end of July for 1 week. Our son is 6 years old.It is a new venture for us! Which is best- camping or staying in a gite? What are the best places to eat that will be family friendly? Which is the best route for travelling there- eurotunnel or ferry crossing? Any recommended campsites? Any other helpful tips/advice would be great!
We did this when the DC were small - both gites and camping. Always found the end of July better for the weather - maybe we were just lucky!
We much prefer the Eurotunnel now - similar price and much quicker (and DD and I get sea-sick) but the Dover Calais ferry could be fun for your DS?
There are lots of campsites with pre-erected tents/mobile homes if you don't have the kit. We liked campsites because there were pools and often other facilities and other children four DC to play with
