Le Picard is a small, green camping site in Tournières, in the Calvados region. You camp here in the beautiful countryside of Normandy. The camping site is located in the centre of the village, behind an old farmhouse. There is a small lake near the camping site. The camping site is small and basic, but the service and quality of the amenities are very good. Enjoy the heated swimming pool, the playground and the restaurant.
Camping or renting?
When you drive to your pitch, you will see well-maintained grounds with grass surface in front of you. The number of pitches is limited here (35). There are pitches with and without demarcation. The degree of shade also varies for each pitch. Some pitches have no grass, but a pebble and crushed stone surface instead. The 21 rental accommodation units on Camping Le Picard are owned by people who stay here regularly. Three of them are available for rental.
Mini swimming pool and lake
The swimming pool is small but adequate. It measures some 5 x 10 m and is open from mid-June to the end of August. The swimming pool lies directly behind the restaurant. The lake is located near the entrance of the camping site. You are allowed to fish here, but you have to return your catch to the water.
A simple French meal
You can enjoy a good meal at the restaurant of Le Picard. This has a cosy ambiance. It is a simple establishment, more like a canteen. You can order a 'menu simple' here, but in France, 'simple' often means delicious. There is no camping site shop, but in July and August, you can get daily fresh bread.

Liked - Lovely rural location. Peaceful environment, felt so relaxed. The campsite grounds and facilities very well looked after. Bathrooms are kept extremely clean all the time. Friendly and helpful hosts, Delphine and Laurent, we always feel very welcome. The location is convenient to visit a range of interesting places including the D Day beaches and the beautiful cathedral in Bayeux.
Disliked - The only drawback for us is we need to drive to shops and village and we would prefer to be able to walk or take public transport, however all/most campsites in France are in rural locations and a car is needed.
Liked - Le Picard is such a peaceful beautiful place. Amenities are great and hosts can not do enough for their guests, all helped by the ability to speak English which helps enormously, as well as being able to help with the French language for people wanting to learn. The site is well run and extremely clean. We brought our caravan over in June of this year and left it in storage at a cost of 300Euros per year. We returned at the end of August and intend to go as often as possible. So much to do in the surrounding area too. Thankyou to Delphine & Laurent.

Liked - Quiet surroundings, with only countryside noises arround (cocks, sheep, cows etc), no roads nearby.
The pitches are big enough, even for our large family and the long caravan we need.
The owners are working for their guests from morníng till night trying to make the stay as relaxing as possible. The washrooms, toilets and sinks are cleaned several times a day.
The little snack bar is simple (no Michelin stars ;-)), but you don't have to leave hungry.
The swimming pool is not too big and clean, and very refreching on a hot day.
We will go there again on holiday.
