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 withwink

If you're thinking of renting a gite with Gite de France, suggest you read this first:

For Normandy, I would say rent a gite or a mobile home on a campsite, July is not that reliable for the weather and if you buy all the kit and then hate it, it would be a shame.

(speaking as someone who lives in Normandy!)

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!
