Should be a perfect site.

This review is for Point du Jour

Should be a perfect site. Backs right onto the beach and perfect location for the d-day landing locations. The pitches are tight to get onto and access around the site is interesting to say the least. The biggest issue is the VERY loud music and entertainment that goes on until midnight some nights and takes place every night outside. Our pitch was the opposite end of the site and we were kept awake by the constant thumping of it.

Although the welcome was friendly the site is unorganised.

This review is for Point du Jour

Although the welcome was friendly the site is unorganised. Having booked through the club and asked for a large pitch the club called the site and double checked when we arrived no pitch available of sufficent size. The site put us into a non dog friendly chalet as it was the only accomondation available.This caused us a problem as we had 2 dogs. We were on edge all the time. Later the staff gave us a plan of pitches available from the next day. I chose the best pitch available but we could not get on the pitch until after 2 pm the next day. So 2 days had been wasted of our holiday. I had paid for electric hook up but non was available on our pitch. We could not put the full tent up on the pitch. The last straw for me was on the last day the site wanted an extra 11 euro tax for the site plus over a 100 euro city tax. The pitches are designed more for caravans and motorhomes. With the negatives out of the way the staff are really friendly and helpful. The beach is great and a short walk on the beach brings you to the local village. Its a good base site to tour normandy. It was really relaxing site. Via the Club, the site has also apologised and made amends for the mistake.

Because of the time of year(oct) we had a choice of pitches.

This review is for Point du Jour

Because of the time of year(oct) we had a choice of pitches. Ideal base to explore D-Day beaches etc. Clean facilities, lacked any entertainment or site shop, we put this down to the last week before end of season.Approx 20 minute walk into town centre for shops/restaurants. Would use again. No issues.
