Camping Seasonova Riva Bella is situated along the canal from Ouistreham to Caen. This former municipal camping of substantial proportions is situated in the heart of a protected nature reserve. You will be warmly welcomed by Katja, the manager, to this green and well maintained camping site.
There is ample space for many guests on the beautiful site. Tents and caravans are kept separate from the camper vans. All pitches are more or less the same size. The camping site has new bungalows for rent. They have been placed in such a manner that several families can stay here together. In high season the camping site is frequented by families with children whereas in low season there are many senior citizens.
Wellness facilities and activities
Near the heated swimming pool is a terrace where you can order drinks and snacks. The spa, sauna and jacuzzi are very popular with guests. Children will not get bored in the pirate playgrounds. In the small camping shop you will find the basic necessities. Across the camping site you will find several large supermarkets. In high season several activities are organised for guests.
D-Day and beach excursions
You can exit the camping site via a gate with a code, so that you can go for a walk or cycling along the canal to the renowned Pegasus bridge. This bridge was recaptured by British units in the night of 5/6 June 1944, who herewith created an important link for the invasion units.
The landing area Sword Beach was one of the main landing areas during D-Day. The camping site organises regular excursions to the landing beaches for guests.

Liked - Great location for an overnight stop from the ferry. Reception is obviously well used to large numbers arriving at once and sorted each unit out quickly. There is lightning on the area you are directed to and the pitches are large enough and flat.
Whilst it did not affect us the barrier is open from 6.30 for anyone catching an early ferry, the port is about a mile and a half away
Liked - Everything was fine except someone was on the pitch we had been allocated. It was a long stretch to connect to the electricity and to cap it all there was big pile of dog poo on the pitch I had to clear up. Not the staff' s fault just a bad visitor
Liked - Very handy for overnight stay before and after ferry crossing
Liked - Very close to the ferry port and lady on reception was lovely
Disliked - Had a football kicked at our brand new caravan from the migrant camp as we entered. Pitch numbers really hard to see in the dark. Has to ask where to get water from as amenities not easily visible. Couldn't see a toilet block nearby. Would possibly stay again bit only for another so over a have done Normandy before
Liked - Pitch size, convenient for ferry, cleanliness, well kept grounds, peaceful
Disliked - No
Liked - Quiet and convenient
Disliked - No toilet seats
Liked - This is in a nice location, about 20 minutes walk in to the nearest town of Ouistreham. The pitches are good, and some are semi-secluded with hedges. Electrical power and water points are plentiful (although some may be about 25 metres away from your pitch, so make sure that you take a long lead). Facilities are very basic and limited, but toilet and shower blocks are clean and have nice hot showers. Nice covered swimming pool is open 10am til 7pm. Overall, a decent site and would go again. The only problem was all the migrants that camp in the parkland directly at the site entrance.
Disliked - After swimming, it is a long way to walk in wet swimming gear to go for a shower. They should have another entrance/exit which leads to the shower block..... The biggest negative for this campsite is definitely the Migrant camp that has been set up in the parkland directly beside the entrance. Although these people do not enter the campsite, and do not give anyone any bother, they do at first look a bit intimidating, and I spoke to several people who were terrified to walk past them. There us only one entrance to the site, so that means that some people could only leave by car and not by foot.
Liked - Convenience
Disliked - Area and refugees camped outside entrance
Liked - Good reception late at night.
Disliked - Too far from toilet facilities.
Liked - It was very convenient for the ferry, the showers were very good, the pitch was good.
Disliked - When we arrived, we were given a different pitch which was next to a noisy building site. We complained and were given a much better site straight away.
