Chateau Le Brevedent
Enjoying a stunning, natural location, Pont l'Evêque is also a superb base from which to explore Northern France. Nestling in orchards surrounding the lake and overlooked by the château itself, this is a glorious setting for a family holiday. No wonder then that Le Brèvedent is such a perpetual favourite with our customers.
It's a well run parc with immaculate facilities where you will receive a very warm welcome from the friendly Anglo-French owner who gives the parc a special feel. And the stunning location in the heart of Calvados Country isn't the only reason this 'Castels' parc is in demand. It offers every diversion, from excursions to Paris, to a spot of lake fishing. You are also within easy reach of super beaches, picturesque Norman villages and some quite exquisite countryside, no wonder this is such a favoured region of France.
