Reviewer: Elainemcd 15 reviews from this member

 This is quite a large site with 2 big buildings which house the toilets - no seats or loo roll but clean, the showers and wash basins - clean and warm water eventually, washing up facilities again only warm water eventually and a few urinals but no door so on display!

The staff were friendly and spoke some English, we chose our own pitch which was a good size but needed the grass cutting and separating hedge trimming. (The Owner did start cutting the grass on the 3rd day of our stay)There was a fairly well stocked shop and they served snacks in the evenings. The pool was open but the Owner was cleaning it while we were swimming.

We walked down to the beach on their private(steep) footpath but found that the gate wasn't locked even though it had a keypad on it - this was a shame as anyone could have entered the site this way.

Unfortunately the little town of Vierville sur Mur was very quiet even though there were quite a few tourists around. I think they would probably come to life at the beginning of June ready for the D-Day landings 70th anniversary.

The beach was lovely and there was lots to see.

 Do not visit this Campsite. Went there with a family last weekend in May 2014. Website states heated swimming pool, but owner refused to open swimming pool claiming it was too cold, despite the fact owner and others including ourselves were wandering around in shorts, shirts, sunglasses and sandals! We explained we had booked this site because it had a heated pool for the children and it stated by pool side it was open from 10 till 8 and it was now 2 pm. Offered to open it later in afternoon for a few hours. TV room has only French Channels. Site is a 'throw back' to the sixties when you got what you were given and 'like it or lump it' attitude. Asked to cancel our 5 day booking which owner agreed, but refused to refund money onto credit card or give cash, instead had a Euro cheque which we weren't sure we could cash/bank in England! Checked with Mastercard who stated should have refunded on card as paid with Mastercard. Other Negatives: Staff unfriendly and unhelpful. Comparatively expensive at 195 Euros for pitch and electricity for 5 nights; Other facilities were sparse or none existent: Two dated toilet blocks, no loo roll, no toilet seats, showers compact, water warm. Pitches mainly with privacy in mind; few had a view of the beach. Everything just dated and drab, lacking colour - that 'happy feel' you want on holiday. Booked for 5 nights, left after 2. Would have left earlier if owner would have refunded 4 nights instead of only agreeing to 3 nights. Positives: If you just want to 'stay on site' and were lucky enough to get one of the dozen or so sites overlooking the beach, then this maybe for you, but there are many friendlier, cheaper sites in area, for example, Surrain. Needless to say, we won't be returning to this site

Reviewer: Cd_017 7 reviews from this member

 We stayed for 2 nights at this large campsite.

At check in we were told everything that we weren't allowed to do.

We could choose our own pitch, but as virtually all the pitches are quite small there wasn't much to choose from, especially as the sea view pitches had already been taken. One good thing was that there were hedges between pitches and there were goats in the site used to keep the grass down.

The pool was heated but as one of the many rules was that men had to wear 'budgie smugglers' my husband refused to go in. The first night we had loud music and radios from in front and behind the tent (apparently there isn't a rule about that). The second night was a Friday and the many static caravans filled up with the 'weekenders'. We had to pre-order fresh bread the day before and if you forgot (as we did) there wasn't any fresh bread on offer.

This site charged us the most per night to pitch compared to the other sites we stayed in but didn't have the facilities to match, in fact the toilets/showers really need to be updated and watch out for the aroma if you are using the communal toilets after everyone else.

The site is next to Omaha beach which is a lovely sandy beach, although because of the tides you need to walk a fair way down the beach to find a 'spot'. On the plus side there is a kayak hire at the bottom of the path from the site.

We can recommend lunch at La Marine in Grandcamp Maisy which is only a short drive away and sand kites can be hired here.

All in all if you are looking for a holiday near the D Day beaches of Normandy I would personally look at some of the other sites around.

 Having seen the previous reviews we thought we would be on to a winner with this campsite. Sad to say not everything lived up to our expectations.

Spacious pitches - yes

Facilities for personal care - as described in previous reviews

Shop - closed

Snack bar - closed

Swimming pool - closed

Wi-fi - only usable if sat within the confines of the sun terrace of the closed snack bar. Not terribly convenient when it was blowing a gale and spitting with rain.

Beach access - gate was no longer secure although the beach was well worth a visit.

A lot of small museums in the area each covering their particular D Day landing beach. But be under no illusions Normandy has much more to offer than just the history of liberation of France in 1944. In conclusion we would probably not use this site again, mainly because the tariff had not been reduced to reflect the reduced number of facilities available.

 Campsite clean and tidy. The owners are really friendly and speak some English. You can book online and get a quick response. The site wasn't busy - we booked the night before in Mid August. Plenty of hot water available for washing up and showers although the washrooms (not the toilets) are locked at 10pm. The site is also closed to cars after 8. 00pm but there is plenty of car-parking just outside the gate. The majority of pitches are separated by hedges which gives a lot of privacy. Only a few pitches have sea views but these are less sheltered. The heated swimming pool is fantastic, new this year it was spotless. No shoes are allowed in the pool area and no long swimming shorts. There is a bouncy castle for the under 10s, a games and TV room which is well separated from the main camping area and boules, table tennis and beach volleyball court. There is also a shop for all those things you forgot and fresh bread, croissants and pain au chocolate arrive every morning. A small snack bar near the pool does drinks, snacks and icecreams. A pizza van comes Saturday evening c 7-12 euros per pizza.

Being two minutes from the beach, down a private path, accessed by a security coded gate, was amazing. The beach at low tide is vast with numerous sandbanks to swim out too. At high tide it is a steep rocky bank. Part of the beach is watched by a lifeguard although it is generally a very safe beach. There are plenty of shrimps, fish and crabs to watch in the rock pools.

Loads to do in the area with all WWII memorials and museums. Mont St Michel was 1. 5-2hrs drive. There are no shops as such in the village but Trevieres (8km) has a brilliant butchers/charcuterie and bakers. Supermarkets are located at Isigny, Bayeux and Port-au-Bessin.

 This is a very convenient site for the D-Day beaches - some pitches overlook the Omaha beach itself, but these are quite exposed.

Other pitches are spacious, have electricity and a privet hedge for privacy / windbreak.

The site is busy - many comings and goings but quiet at night.

Toilet block - these 2 units are identical. They are clean, have no loo seats or paper. Showers are too few (and need a regular press of the tap to keep the water coming)- only 3 in each block for each sex and often a queue can form. The facilities can become unisex as the signs for male and female sides of the block are tiny and some are broken. Hair dryer on thre wall!. Basin and shower blocks shut from 10-7am but there are wc, urinal, veg prep / wash up / dog wash area and a separate washine machine for a few euros.

Water for the motorhome is a cheeky 2 euros, but a jubilee clip adapter can fasten on to a push tap for a fill up. Rubbish disp[osed / recycled just off the site.

Wi-fi can be accessed by buying a drink in the outdoor cafe, take in your laptop and fingers crossed it will work - not very reliable in my experience.

Lots of activities for kids - bouncy giraffe, pool, wiff-waff (ping-pong!) football. Beach is of course vast - check tides to avoid a long walk to the sea.

Telephone box on site. Check out the outdoor and indoor museum at the entrance to the lane leading to the site - fascinating. Find the American cemetery and museum at Pointe d'Hoc (free) and British military cemetery (Canadians, Germans and many others too) at Bayeux.

Reviewer: Hayabusa977 1 review from this member

 Great Campsite with lovely clean, modern toilets & showers. The shop is a bit expensive but very handy for the odd bit of shopping. The swimming pool, which only opened in June 2011 is very lovely but there is the normal French rule about shorts being banned. I will not wear budgie smugglers. (Speedos). I would recommend this campsite to anyone whether you are tenting, camper van or hiring the static homes which look new and very comfortable. There is a private path down to the beach which is a bit of a up hill walk on the way back, but there are seats halfway up the path to rest tired legs. The location of the campsite is great for anyone who is undertaking a D Day battlefield tour of the region.
