Why stay here ...

This large, family-oriented site offers a lively stay during the summer months and has a range of facilities for all ages. A huge pool complex is the focal point, with slides, whirlpools and water jets giving children plenty to enjoy, while the beach is just 500m away. In addition, there's kids’ clubs and organised activities, while adults can enjoy a relaxing treatment in the spa. 

The pitches are of a good size and divided by hedges, and the restaurant offers family-friendly meals and a takeaway service.

The site is located outside Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer, midway between Sword and Juno Beaches. It's a good base for exploring World War II sites and D Day landing beaches. Bayeux and Caen are also easily accessible.

Excellent for families and visiting D-day spots!

We stayed here for a week in May 2017 and loved the place. We are a family with 2 lively boys who loved the pool. The toilets were amazing - best I have ever seen on a campsite. The shop was great, and had plenty of food so you didn't have to visit a supermarket. Location is brilliant as we wanted to visit the WW2 D-day memorials so loved the place. Defiantly would go back, if you want a quiet, peaceful site then you may need to go elsewhere.

Not one I would return to , but may suit others

Well we used this site for a one night stop when travelling from Calais across to the west of France. Firstly to get to the site it is quite a small residential road , and in a large motor home lucky nothing was coming the other way that all I can say ! When we did get to the entrance there was no where to park as it was so busy and I was stuck in the road blocking everyone for about 15 mins ! There was a queue out of the reception door of about 15 people in front of us ! This site was busy and it was only beginning of May . When we finally got to the receptionist we were given an armband to wear ? and told where the pitch was ( but inform if we found an empty one before we got there take that!) , no one showed us to our pitch just a rough map was given, so we ventured into the park , you had to drive past the shop and pool so there were so many people in your way , unbeknown to me I took a wrong turning and ended up down a narrow dead end of lodges and had to reverse all the way out , then a member of staff noticed my problem , I showed him my pitch number and he had to think long and hard where it was , he then lead me there on his push bike thank god ! Anyhow , smallish pitches surrounded by hedges , water and waste and electric on pitch , toilet block was very modern , clean and warm. Lots of people and quite noisy , but we were fine and had a good nights sleep and left next morning , not for us , but may suit others , seems to be a very busy popular site with the locals.

Three Night Stop Over

Booked through the Caravan and Motorhome Club for three nights commencing 2 September. Most of the facilities have been shut down including toilets, showers and dishwashing. As a disabled person the facilities are very poor. We were allocated Pitch 140 near the toilets and showers which meant it was only 10 metres away from our Motorhome. The following day these facilities were permanently shut, even though the site doesn't close until the 10 September. The nearest toilet and shower block is 200 metres away. We spoke to the Manager on site but no joy and we were told they could not move our Motorhome either to be nearer facilities. The shop and restaurant are only open for short periods of time. In effect the site is closed but happy to charge us normal fees. We contacted the Caravan and Motorhome Club Overseas department for help and we were told they could not help us but would email the overseas site team. If anyone is the thinking of using this site during the last week of August or the first week in September I would think again. The saving grace is that Saint Aubin Sur Mer has restaurants and shops. These are currently open. The staff at Cote de Nacre need customer service training. If customers are treated properly and provided with the basic facilities they would return. It's a shame as this site has so much going for it, although it is looking a tad tired. We'll see what response we will get from the Overseas Site Team!!! We still have two days left here!!!
