Can anyone recommend a site in Normandy that's close enough to a village ( a proper village with cafés and supermarket ) that you can walk to. Not Neufchatel or pontorson , been there and got them on the list for next year.   Doesn't have to be posh site as long as got nice showers !!

Thanks in advance

The sites close to villages, or actually in the villages, are the municipals - though some are privatised now - but by and large the local mayors and councils set up sites in the best positions long ago.

I'd suggest to you that instead of choosing a site you first of all choose the particular area / town / village where you want to be - and nine times out of ten there will be a decent , clean, respectable campsite there. Our rule of thumb is that the smarter the village the smarter the municipal site,

Happy planning.

Camping Portland in Port en Bessin. Stayed there last year - great campsite, great facilities, coastal walkway down to village approx 800m away. Great location for exploring all the D-Day sights.

Lots of choices of municipal sites here.  Have a look at some of them - they will almost always be on the edge of a small village or town.

We stayed at 2 good village campsites this year...Le Champ de Course st Courseulles sur Mer and the municipal at Etretat.

Both were easily walkable to each village and worth looking at. I registered the Etretat site on UKCS as soon as we got home but it hadn't appeared at my last check so I haven't been able to review it yet.

Etretat was a lovely, older village with loads of shops and places to eat and has a pebbly beach with amazing cliffs on either side.

Courseulles was 'Juno' beach and is more modern but still bustling and has a massive sandy beach and a small harbour/marina.
