Why stay here ...
This welcoming site offers plenty for families or those looking for a central base from which to explore Normandy's highlights. It has been attractively landscaped, with some pitches overlooking small fishing ponds, and a modern building where a bar and restaurant are housed. Evening entertainment is held in the bar area, but the site remains largely peaceful even when busy.
Port’Land is just along the coast from Arromanches and within easy reach of many of the World War II sites, including Utah and Omaha beaches, and the region’s many cemeteries. A bus service to the medieval city of Bayeux stops a five minute walk from site. Caen also merits a visit, with its castle – once inhabited by William the Conqueror – and abbeys.
