The Blonville-sur-mer Beach campsite

After leaving Fecamp we drove west towards Honfleur on our way to Blonville-sur-Mer. We had a booking for a few nights camping at a beachside campsite called The Blonville-sur-mer beach campsite. It’s about one hour thirty minutes, so not too long a journey. We took the route over the Pont de Normandie which is a Toll bridge. (So we could stop off at Honfleur) It cost about €6.50 we easily paid by contactless payment on our phone.

After Honfleur, it was only another 30-minute drive to our campsite at Blonville-sur-Mer. The town is West of Deauville and Trouville-sur-Mer. We picked this campsite so we could easily visit the nearby towns. The beach at Blonville-sur-Mer stretches for about two kilometres and is made up of fine sand. This makes it a perfect beach for families and a safe place to swim. Lifeguards are present during the High season from 1st July to 31st August.

We checked in to our site, parked up and headed off for a swim, the first swim of the holiday. It was cold, very cold, being the English Channel and more or less across from The Isle of Wight and the Solent, I felt that it was just like being at home. I lasted around 10 minutes. I am saving any future mad swimming ideas until we turn the corner and drive further south.

After our homemade evening meal, we walk into town. The centre of Blonville-sur-Mer was about A ten-minute walk from the campsite. It is very small, offering a supermarket, a few family-run shops, and several restaurants alongside a bakery La Blonvillaise (which made some very nice bread and cakes) This place may be small but it’s lovely looking, the buildings are beautiful, It is a very welcoming little place.
