This campsite has all sorts of facilities so great if you like everything on site. I can't fault the site but it was a bit big for us. The site not only has touring pitches, which are a good size and all individually hedged, but there are also a large number of static caravans. There were lots of facilities for children and a swimming pool. There was also a bar, shop and restaurant offering snacks and takeaways. You could order fresh croissants and bread every day. Facilities were very clean, but as with other campsites we have visited in France are all unisex with toilet and shower cubicles but also urinals all in one space. It is located near cycle routes along the coast and lots to see and do. A visit to St Vaast and Titihou island is really worth it.
Stayed in August 2019 on a premium pitch with its private sanitaire for 15 nights. We used this site last year and it was equally as good. There's plenty of activities, a weekly programme. We had very English weather, gales rain, floods but this didn't spoil the time we had. I found the staff to be patient, understanding and very efficient. The electrics are Uk style but we had two occasions when we lost power to the shared bollard, caused I think by the German neighbours who used an adopter that evidently wasn't waterproof. We did have reverse polarity on pitch 143 but I had a waterproof adapter. The weather wasn't fantastic we had some storms and gales but this isn't uncommon in Normandy. Places to go to, plenty of D Day exhibitions and museums. We thought the D Day experience at Saint Come du Monte was excellent, the museums are fairly standard but the 3D cinema was well worth a visit. Two members of staff in particular were fanastic, Aurelie who was on the shop most mornings and my friendly barmaid Caroline who said she understood my dodgy French.
The site I found was ideally situated for WW2, locations and museums. I stayed a week 6/2019, the weather was very rough with gale force winds, which with the brilliant pitches, being sheltered by some lovely trees, we were kept safe. There are four toilet blocks, and are regularly cleaned to a high standard. The snack bar/Bar had only limited opening hours during June, which was a shame. A group of young people were allocated to a pitch, with their four tents, and their radio was so loud, it may not be suited to all. I was very impressed with the staff, some of whom had more than one role, literally running to get things done. I would visit again.
Our group of 5, 3 adults and 2 children, stayed here in August 2018 on a premium pitch with its private sanitary block. This is a lively, busy site in high season with a great activity program for children of all ages. The site is well maintained. Most of the staff speak English and all were friendly. If you want a quite site then this is not for you. Having said that I heard no noise after 23:00 except for the pleasant noise of the waves on the nearby beach. It was fantastic for our grandchildren. The take away pizzas are from 7.90 euro a little expensive but really good. The shop in high season opens at 8:30 you can buy bread croissants etc without ordering. It is a little isolated in that there is nothing in walking distance except 300 yards away a restaurant/salon du the "Les Cabines". The nearest supermarket is at Saint Mere Eglise - Super U it is a smallish supermarket with a petrol station. We had a great time and intend to revisit, there's a lot to see in the area and plenty to keep any children active on site. A word of caution regarding going to Bayeux there are long queues for the tapestry. When arriving and going to reception there is no clearly defined parking bay. I recommend parking in the middle leaving room to take the first turn left, before reception and the barrier as you may be allocated a pitch that is not accessed via the barrier
We spent 2 weeks here and really had a great time. The site is about 45 minutes drive from Cherbourg and an easy site to get to. Our welcome was a very warm one from the reception staff. Pitch was allocated, each pitch is individual with hedge around for privacy. There are 2 toilet blocks with washing up facilities inside and out. The showers are free and the water is very hot which is nice. Blocks are cleaned 3 times a day. There is a shop which sells fresh baguettes and other stuff. There is s bar open for a couple of hours in low season but longer during high season. There is also made to order pizza thin cut but very delicious.There is a snooker table and tv room for the kids. There is an indoor heated pool and outdoor pool very popular with kids. There is an information room also. The site is over the road from the beach and dogs can be exercised on here. We found the site easy place for visiting D-Day landing beaches and even went down to Pegasus Bridge. Bayeux is also accessible from here. A visit to Barfleur is a must and you can climb the lighthouse. I would definitely recommend this site and would definitely return in the future.
Upon arriving at this site I was very pleased to be so close to the beach. The stay on arrival were very helpful and friendly they gave me a map of the site and told me the key things. I had our dog with us and found that if you need to they have poor bags at the entrance to the site so no excuses for not cleaning up. The pitch was big and was very well kept. The shower block close by had 4showers and 1 disabled which was locked washing up sinks and a baby bath with shower which was very good. The water was hot and I mean hot great for washing up pity sites in England don't follow suite. There was a bar and a shop on site which. Was open for short amounts of time but fresh baggets every day and a pizza parlour. Plenty on site for family's with children including indoor/ outdoor swimming pool. We used this site so a Base for visiting the war beaches and cemeteries the site is well kept and the site was not very noisy but might be at the height of season. All in all we had a great time and highly recommended this site for sightseeing or to bring your family
Just returned from 12 nts ,we have 3 kids and they loved it ,facilities are great ,the toilets are ok and showers ok (not the best) but overall a good site in a superb location,the staff were all very friendly and helpful,nothing negative to say at all ,would return in a few years for sure ,going to try the castels sites next tour though ,thanks cormoran for an enjoyable stay .
This is an excellent site for touring the "American" part of the Normandy invasion in 1944. It is just down the road from Utah beach and Ste Mere Eglise. The site is well spread out and the pools look inviting. A warm welcome from the English speaking reception staff and great facilities on site including a shop, pizzeria and take away pizza stall. The pitches are plenty big enough and our had water and drainage as well as electric hook-up. I would recommend this site if visiting the area either with a motorhome or caravan
Lovely site, about 33 miles from Cherbourg, we stayed here two nights 14/15th Sept 2016. Good pitches, shop, and beach. Friendly staff. Access is good for twin axles. Supermarket 5 miles away. Lots to see and do in the local area. We will def return again.

Booked in for 9 nights mainly to see Tour de France. Pitches were excellent and of a good size enclosed by hedges. Toilet blocks were mixed in general but always very clean and well serviced. Shop well stocked and Pizza bar good. Was just 2 adults but could see facilities for families were great. Staff very friendly and always have time to chat. area around camp site flat and good for cycling. Wii return again, may be with Grandchildren. Would recommend
