Good for families

Nice place but poor access !!

After researching & planning our first trip to France from the end of December 2017, we thought we had chosen an ideal site to meet our needs. After arriving early, after an overnight ferry, we were able to set up, as our designated pitch was free. Upon arrival we weren't told about having to hire a tap for 30 euros so we could access our water point !!! We found out eventually after searching around the site & not finding any water facilities. General facilities were okay & our caravan pitch was a reasonable size but it had extremely poor access for a twin axle & 4wd. Ideal for small vans with a motormover !! The overhanging foliage & tree branches, which just missed the top of our caravan, made our entrance very uncomfortable to negociate. To add, the smaller pitch user (tents) around us, encroached onto the already narrow paths with their cars, we missed one going round a tight corner by mm's !! We were very disappointed, considering how much we had paid, our pitch had tall overgrown branches covering it so we didn't get any sun for the whole 2 weeks !! The swimming pool was excellent although there was some strange rule about not being able to wear swimming shorts only lyra ones, conveniently available in the shop !!! The sites shop & restaurant were overpriced. We found a local Lidl !! The town was quiet with minimal facilities like shops but a good base camp for travelling around Normandy. There was only one rubbish/recycling point, located at the site entrance. Best to ask for the on call site warden as well, as one night a family woke everyone up past midnight having a party in their tent, which did not go down too well !!! Finally, you have to pay 'tourist tax' when you check in, on top of the already expensive site fees.

You do realize that it's the law in France to wear lycra swimwear and not swimshorts in the pool, don't you?

Just that your review makes it sound like you thought it was some bizarre rule made so they could charge you money to buy Speedos.

The law was changed after a couple of (separate) incidents where boys with swimshorts were caught by the excess material in the shorts and drowned.

And a ‘tourist tax’ is the norm! Everywhere will charge a varying ‘tourist tax’ charge. It goes to the commune, not to the site. It’s sometimes known as ‘the mayors tax’!
