The manor plays a key role at Le Brévedent!

Le Brévedent is one of the historic campsites belonging to the Les Castels chain, which has always welcomed campers on the grounds of the Louis XVI hunting lodge.
During your stay, you’ll get the chance to have a drink at the bar on the ground floor of the manor, where you can discover the family’s ancestors in the period lounge, spend time with friends playing a board game or go to the baby-kitchen available 24/7 for families with young children.

The manor has its history!

During the Second World War, there were many German troops in our militarily strategic region. This went on for 4 years. The Pays d’Auge was not spared and the manor itself was also occupied.
Years later, Mrs Gurrey told campers that a British pilot dropped a shell in the lake in front of the manor a few seconds before he crash-landed.

A family history !

The Marquis de Chabannes founded the Le Brévedent campsite in 1960 to restore the hunting lodge after the Second World War. It has been in the family for 4 generations. Geneviève Gurrey, the Marquis’ daughter, was the head of the family business for a few years, then Anne Bony-Gurrey, the Marquis’ granddaughter, took over. She gave it its rightful place as one of the most beautiful campsites in France, creating services within the site to make life easier for families.
Today Raphaël, the Marquis’ great-grandson, Jess and their children welcome tourists from all over Europe who spend their holidays in this place, steeped in history. Their priority is now ecology, sharing and music, but the founding values of hospitality and family live on.

The Le Brévedent philosophy: Brév’maculture

At the Le Brévedent campsite, Jess and Raphaël have come up with the concept of Brév’maculture. It’s a philosophy based on well-being, sharing and respect for others and the environment. Brév’maculture is an open access permaculture vegetable garden, 100% natural washing-up liquid in the toilet blocks, nature workshops and discovering wild plants along with open mic nights, musical experiences and the chance to take a step back from our hectic lives.

At the beach or in the countryside, with your family or on your own, you’re sure to enjoy the many attractions that Normandy has to offer!

The Le Brévedent campsite is an excellent starting point for travelling all around Normandy. Le Brévedent is located on the border between the Eure and Calvados, 40 minutes from Caen and Le Havre, 1 hour from Rouen and the landing beaches and 2 hours from Mont-Saint-Michel.

You’re looking for a mobile home to rent for the weekend. You want to visit Honfleur and have breakfast in the old harbour area while watching the painters who have set up their easels on the cobblestones. You want to continue your journey and stop off at the seaside resort of your choice to go for a swim at high tide. Le Brévedent is the perfect place to stay! You’ll get peace and quiet less than half an hour from the hustle and bustle of the Côte Fleurie. We recommend taking the country roads to discover our beautiful region, leading you to the seaside, passing through the traditional villages of Beaumont-en-Auge, with its timber-framed houses, Saint-Etienne-la-Thillaye and Tourgéville.

The reception rivals a tourist office. There you’ll find all the information you need and the team will be happy to help you plan the best couple or family holiday.

You can go on a 40-km tour of the Route du Cidre, passing through the Pays d’Auge villages. You’ll experience the hospitality of local producers in an authentic setting, passing flower meadows, manors and stud farms on the way.
You can take a day to go to the landing beaches, rediscover the key milestones of the D-Day landings and the battle of Normandy and salute the bravery of the soldiers who fought for our freedom. If you have the chance to visit around the 6th of June, commemorations take place all over the coast. They’re not to be missed.
Maybe you’ll have an outdoor adventure day. The Suisse Normande area is the ideal place for leisure activities, climbing and canoeing.
Or you can go to the seaside resorts – Deauville-Trouville, Villers-sur-Mer, Houlgate – where numerous activities are offered for both children and adults.
And maybe, if you have time, you can stop by to visit our neighbours Jérôme and Françoise Spruytte in Saint-Philbert-des-Champs to buy the best Pont-l’Evêque cheese in Normandy, which they make with love.
Whatever you choose, you’ll always be happy to return to the beautiful valley of Le Brévedent, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, to enjoy both the idyllic scenery and the services offered by the campsite, as simple as they are: the restaurant, the shop, the bar, etc. Holidays are also about relaxing on your pitch or the terrace of your mobile home or furnished lodge tent and enjoying a great evening of live music by the café.
