Camping Les Breuils, 55100 Verdun, Tel 0329861531


To Find Site:- Leave the A4 autoroute at junction 31 and head towards Verdun. As you approach Verdun the campsite is well signed (The campsite is not far from the Citadelle if you need a point to aim for) At the roundabout take first exit to campsite.

Over the last ten years we have stayed at this site three times  as it is usefully situated en route to and from Germany. The landscaping and greenery of the site gives it a very pleasant look and feel.  The site is long, tapering down at the far end past the reception. The only changes we have witnessed in the time we have been visiting the site  is an increase in the number of mobile homes. Most times we have been here we have experienced wet weather for at least part of our stay. The effect on the pitches is that it makes them very messy and there are some simple ways to address this by providing at least some all-weather pitches but as yet this has not been done. Fortunately the pitches opposite the main toilet block exit onto a wide road and if you have a motorhome it’s sensible to put the front drive wheels on the tarmac to prevent getting stuck or park your car on the road across the pitch. Pitches vary in size and tend to be narrower than they are long although there are some larger pitches available. Some pitches are set around a picturesque lake. The site is popular with overnighters so pitch size is not always critical. Most are delineated by hedges, some tall,  and trees. Electric points are convenient to pitches but are mounted fairly high up. They use CEE17 blue connectors and are rated at 6 amps, best to check for reverse polarity.  For such a large site water points are a bit scarce. The main toilet block is looking very tired and could do with refurbishment. The glaze on some of the tiles in the showers has worn away which makes them look less than clean. The second block which is much further into the site is nicer in terms of showers and privacy cubicles although again the toilets are seatless and no paper is provided. The motorhome service point is situated at the end of a wide site road so there is plenty of room to move around. The chemical emptying point is also here, there is another at the second toilet block. WiFi is free but only available around the bar area and is not particularly strong signal wise. Mobile signal is quite good as was mobile data.  The reception area houses the booking in desk, a bar, a basic shop where bread can be ordered and a popular camp restaurant with both indoor and covered outdoor eating areas.  For children there is a playground near to reception and near the motorhome service point there is an enclosed ball game area. The site has a nice swimming pool complex which slides and shoots.

Whilst the site is often used for an overnight stay it is worthy of a longer stay. It’s a relatively easy walk into Verdun and the Citadel. There is a large indoor market. In reception you can help yourself to a map detailing the important historical parts of the City. For those who think the walk might be too much there is a two hourly bus service from within the site into Verdun. For major shopping there is a Cora supermarket on the eastern outskirts of the City.
