You need to say when because campsites may be still closed. You also need to say how long you intend to be away and approximate daily distance. it would also be useful to know what time you arrive in Caen to be able to recommend the first night.

Le Guide Officiel Camping Caravaning shows 10,000 campsites in France and may be found on Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_ ...

A 5 day trip - is that intended to be a gently and direct route or a more adventurous loop of a ride?

I rode from Caen to Vire and spend the night in the municipal campground just outside of town. I was the only one there that night.

We will be doing this over 5 days and any advice would be great. We would preferably stay in hostels or any good low cost accommodation. Many Thanks Luke
