Stayed in 1 of the campsite chalets for short break before heading home. Very lucky with the weather-glorious sunshine. Some of the site facilities closed due to being end of season. So bar not open after 7. 30 which was a bit of a pain as no others in walking distance as local bar/restaurant had also closed for the season. Pools great very clean and plenty of loungers. Site kept in an immaculate condition-cars for hire at reasonable rates for motorhomes so they didn't have to move their outfits. Loved ste mere eglise-lots of coffee bars and restaurants but wouldn't go to the biscuit factory cafe bar again due to very rude staff. I found all the memorials to the fallen very moving -actually seeing the beaches of the Normandy Landings really brought home the reality of the situation young men must have faced.

Would not return to this particular site in the low season as no facilities within walking distance. But that is my point of view-not a reflection on the campsite

The chalet was very well equipped but despite having an enormous TV supposedly satellite only 1english channel and that was bbc world news.

Third stay on this site in past two years. Great place but can sometimes be a bit tight for large units manoeuvring around. Good modern facilities which are cleaned more than once a day. English is spoken very well at the reception and the staff, whoever they are, always have a smile on their faces. Good area for visiting WW2 places quite easily. Always visit the site if n the area or sometimes if off the beaten track.

So pleased that we booked this site for our holiday, like others have said it is a fabulous site. We had a Comfort pitch with water and ehu, Pitches are very large.

Quite big which we were concerned about, but once there with all the pitches split in separate areas and linked by access roads and pathways it feels much smaller. Very clean, no liter and toilets and showers cleaned twice a day. The showers and toilets have a mix of facilities and also washing machines and tumble dryers and washing up areas (coins available from reception). Free hairdryers too.

The shop is very well stocked and not overly expensive, the bar is lively and put on special nights of entertainment, paella nights etc and there is a takeaway pizza next to the bar. You can get ice packs from the shop 2euro deposit and 20cents refreeze. They do not freeze your own due to hygiene. But you can ask for a bag of ice from the bar and they are happy to give it away free. Fresh bread and croissants etc available twice a day.

There is plenty to do, 2 swimming pools, tennis, boules, and snooker billiards. Also lots of inflatables and kiddies areas and large climbing frames, TV room, these are all tucked away in areas and do not intrude onto the pitches, in fact not having kids we were surprised that how much there was for them to do but we didn't come across most of them. There is also riding available.

All the staff are very friendly and happy to help, good English spoken which helps with booking and asking questions

The beach is opposite the campsite, the road wasn't particularly busy either. The beach is lovely, not busy and the sea was very calm whilst we were there. You can walk to Utah beach and the other way to Ravenville Plage where there is a Pizzeria and bar. And dogs are allowed on the beach with no restrictions.

They have market stalls selling fruit, cheese, meat and jewelry outside the campsite on different days and a lovely rotisserie on a Sunday.

The closest supermarket is in Sainte Mère Église and if you need a vet to worm your dogs for your return journey it is opposite the supermarket.

All in all a super site and we are going to book for next year.

Without a doubt this is the best campsite we have ever stayed on in France. We got a reduced rate with our ACSI discount card. The pitches are huge and divided well with shrubs and hedging. The grass is proper grass, mowed regularly and the landscaping in general is lovely. The site is right on the front opposite Utah beach. The toilet blocks are very clean and modern with abundant hot water, hand wash, toilet rolls etc. There are 4 sanitation blocks in total and each has a washing machine, tumble drier and ironing board. The washing machine we used was far better than some of the huge ones in large coastal campsites that wash your clothes in 20 minutes but they do not come out properly clean. This one did! There are 2 pools, one covered and one open air, a takeaway, bar and restaurant, play areas etc. We were there late in the season and there were people arriving all the time - a testament to how good this site is.

Nearby is St Mere Eglise the town made famous by the US Airborne troops parachuting into the area early on the morning of D day. I cannot help but think if the small town was in Spain or even the USA it would have a McDonalds on one corner of the square, with a Starbucks, Burger King and a Dunkin Donuts on the other 3. Not so here - it is unspoilt. The Airborne Museum just off the square is amazing and well worth a visit - as are several others in Normandy. The Bayeux Tapestry is also a short drive away. Driving up the Cherbourg peninsula you will discover some pretty coastal villages and small towns - one with a Mediterranean micro climate! I am sure the area would be very very busy in the summer months particularly in early June when the campsite would be full. Their facilities may possibly be stretched. When we were there the weather was kind, the crowds had gone and it was bliss!

A great site which was easy to find, good and easy check in with very friendly staff. We had a basic pitch which was more than big enough for our large tent with room for our car trailer and room to sit out in the sun. Lovely warm and large indoor and outdoor swimming pools, good bar area, basic but nice takeaway counter, huge play areas, trampolines, bouncy inflateables, showers always hot and clean. Just a ten minute drive to Saint Mere Eglise for a supermarket and petrol station. Lots to see and do in Normandy, lots of D-Day things to see The Memorial at Caen, Bayeux Tapestry, Bayeux Commonwealth War Cemetary, American Airbourne Museum, Mont Saint Michele, Utah Beach Museum were all excellent places we visited with lots more we didn't see. We would highly recommend to anyone and are already looking to go back next year

We stayed here for 3 nights after crossing from Poole to Cherbourg - the drive from the port was around an hour and the site was easy to find and access, all of the staff spoke English and the check in was very quick.

We had a deluxe pitch which included a private shower, toilet, sink and washing up area at the rear of the pitch. This was definitely worth the extra few pounds a night and I would recommend to take one if you are debating as we did at the time of booking.

The pitch was large and private - more than enough room for car, caravan, awning and still space to sit outside. The pitches got the sun all day which was also a great bonus for us.

We used the shop which had the basics - but also had lovely cakes and pastries - prices were very reasonable. We didn't visit the bar or snack bar - however the prices were reasonable although it was only open for a couple of hours a day due to the time of year.

The village is near by - around a 10minute walk and there is a bar and restaurant but again we didn't visit.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
