Le Grand Large is a very well-run and well-established site in an outstanding location for great summer holidays, with a lovely covered pool enhancing its facilities. With direct access to the wonderful beach and its sunset views over the sea and the Channel Islands, there are also many walking paths, a rugged coastline and historic towns, sites and battlegrounds of the Cotentin peninsula to explore. The site is also very handy for Cherbourg’s ferry port and the amazing ocean attraction, Cité de la Mer.

This review is for Le Grand Large

We visit France regularly and this has become our regular 'one night stop' to and from Cherbourg which is about 30 mins away. This year our ferry was a little late but they still gave us a really friendly welcome ( they had kept reception open for us I think). It is a really great site to kick start our holiday and get us well rested before we drive off into France the next morning. On our way back to Cherbourg at the end of our holiday it is a great site for a last swim or body boarding session before coming home. This year we were straight out of the car and into our wetsuits as soon as we arrived, before even pitching up. The beach is gorgeous and the beautiful sunset is becoming a must for us as we say goodbye to France. If you have time, take the 'country route' back to Cherbourg rather than getting straight onto the main road as there are some lovely villages and coastal viewpoints along the coast to the north of Les Pieux. We keep saying that we should stay for longer, but the whole of France beckons... Overall a great site. Highly recommended.

We stayed here the end of August & could not find fault with the site.

This review is for Le Grand Large

We stayed here the end of August & could not find fault with the site. It is right on the beach which was ideal for my family. The site is absolutely spotless & the owners/staff are really friendly. It is in a lovely area lots of places to go out & explore & it is only 15miles from Cherbourg port idea for 1st time abroad with the caravan. Fantastic facilities on site. The pool is really clean, there is an indoor ( which they take the cover off when its gets hot) & an outdoor pool plus a lovely childrens pool. Again everything was so clean. The take away food was nice & reasonably priced. Would highly recommend this site to any one will definitely be going back.

Really family-friendly site with loads to do and just the best beaches.

This review is for Le Grand Large

Really family-friendly site with loads to do and just the best beaches. Small point - the pool areas get very slippy with standing water especially indoor, so all ages be careful.
