Walks setting off from the campsite

Wonderfully located between the sea and the countryside, 2 mins from Honfleur town centre and yet in a quiet spot, in addition to its large range of on-site activities, The 5* campsite La Briquerie also offers a variety of walks nearby

On foot, by bike, even on horse-back!

From the campsite there are numerous activities

  • The woods are only 500 metres away and accessible via country paths from behind the campsite:you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the lovely rhododendrons and the many great views of the sea from the lovely Bois du Breuil (Breuil woods)
  • Beach 3000 metres away: you can access the Vasouy beach via a country road from behind the campsite (thus avoiding the centre of Honfleur which can be very busy indeed in the summer)
  • Charming, wild, sandy beach with a small carpark opposite
  • Côte de Grace (“gracious coast”) circuit : once again from the campsite, via a charming country road, you will appreciate the picturesque walk along the famous Côte de Grâce.

You will spot sumptuous properties and manor-houses amidst the lush landscape and preserved countryside
