Why stay here ...

A welcoming, family-run site in the heart of Cotentin Natural Park, Le Cormoran is situated across the road from a lovely sandy beach and close to Cherbourg and Caen ports. It’s an ideal place for families and couples to relax, with level grass pitches and a range of amenities for all ages. Children will enjoy the outdoor and indoor pools, as well as the playing field with archery, while adults can enjoy the sauna and indulge in an onsite massage. Nets can also be hired for a day’s shrimping on the beach.

A perfect base for exploring Normandy, the winding country roads in the area are ideal for exploring by bike. Utah and Omaha beaches are close by, and tours can be arranged with local agencies. Also within driving distance are Bayeux and Arromanches.

Plenty of Activities

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

Enjoyable Stay

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.

Amazing place

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

Oui Normandie

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
