In the heart of the D-Day Normandy landing beaches
Camping Point du Jour is very well located for Normandy beachside holidays, short breaks and stopovers before or after the Portsmouth-Caen ferry crossing. In a fascinating area – history and modern-day charm sit happily side by side. A one-mile walk will take you to the typical Normandy coastal village of Merville-Franceville where there is a choice of bars and restaurants.

Site seemed poorly organised, power poles full with residents poking electric cables through hedges and across roads round site to utilise, little space to tow round site and pitches hard to get vans on. One member of staff seems to do everything and subsequently you are kept waiting. Was so disappointed with site cancelled 2nd night forgoing refund to stay somewhere else. Personally would not recommend and possibly the most disappointing site I have stayed at in France.
- Towing: Difficult
- Location: Coastal
The site was clean and well run, the reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The site seemed to be primarily used as a stopover, so quite a busy site during the day. We stopped there for eleven nights and felt people were missing out on a really lovely area with loads to do. Its close enough to all the visitor attractions but you can still cycle on flat quiet roads for miles and miles meeting hardly anyone. We are planning to return to France next year and have already decided to use this site as our base.
- Towing: Easy
- Location: Town,Coastal
- Suitable For: Families,Older couples,Peaceful break,Younger couples
