from 70 reviews Write review

L'Escapade camping site is tucked away in Cahagnolles, a tiny village in Normandy with a church and a handful of houses, and is the perfect peaceful location for your camping trip. Here you'll be camping along a lake that is great for both swimming and fishing. The partially terraced camping site has a park-like feel and very spacious pitches. The swimming pool on the camping site has a sliding roof, so you can still go for a refreshing dip in less than wonderful weather.

Camping par excellence

The camping site features 43 spacious, touring pitches and 5 separate pitches for campers. The grass surface on the site is well maintained. The paths are paved and wide. The 36 rental accommodation units are spread out and are composed of large tents and mobile homes. 
This is an excellent camping site for longer stays, but also makes for a great pit stop if you are travelling along the south west coast of France. 

Swimming in the pool and the lake

The heated swimming pool (180 m2) is located near the reception area, the sports field and the tennis court. It is covered with glass roofing. Of course, we open this up during summer weather. The swimming pool has a rather straightforward design. However, there is a slide (10 metres) for the children to enjoy. The lake, which also offers fishing, is located right next to the entrance of the camping site. 

Delicious menus

The restaurant at L'Escapade is a small, charming restaurant with an appealing design. For instance, the bar is made of stacked wine crates. The menu is modest, but everything is high quality! You can also take your meals away. The pizzeria is open in July and August as well. There is another nice restaurant in Lingèvres , ten kilometres away. The camping shop is quite small, but does offer fresh bread every day.

Liked - Coco sweet accommodation was an ideal size for us, being a couple without our children. Loved the layout and all the basics for the stay were provided. Good sized swimming pool, but a little disappointed that it didn't open until mid morning and closed quite early ( in comparison to other sites that we have stayed at). Beautiful site with a large lake, fishing and ducks etc. There was also other birds and animals - a mini-zoo! Lot’s of things to do for children including bouncy castles. We ate at the restaurant one evening and the food was good.Clean site and well maintained. Would use again.
Disliked - Nothing ‘disliked’ but think that the toilet block nearest to our pitch could do with upgrading. Needs an additional sink-only cubicle at least.

There are lot of mobile homes here. The site was immaculately clean with good facilities. The bar and snack bar looked good but we did not use. Water in showers is hot but you have a limited allowance during your stay. One thing that we did not like was that the facilities are not around the campsite, It is quite a walk uphill to the caravans and not easy if you have any mobility issues.
