Overview

Convenient for Normandy beachside holidays, short breaks, and a first trip abroad, to tie in with the Portsmouth-Caen ferry crossing, Le Point du Jour is close to many D-Day landing sites and beaches, where history and seaside charm sit side by side. Enjoy direct access to the beach from the site.

Owned and managed by Guillaume and Lucie Lemarchand (Seasonova Group).

 

Location

Set amongst the coastal villages that lie between the coast road and the beach, direct access to a sandy beach. Merville-Franceville (shops and local services) 1 mile, Merville Battery museum, 6th Airborne museum and Pegasus Bridge, Ouistreham (Caen ferry port) and 'Sword' D-Day landing beach 9 miles, Caen 12 miles.

 

Local transport (2019): Bus stop 50m for services between Cabourg, Caen, Le Havre and Deauville. No local train service available.

 

Pitches

Total pitches: 140. Compact, well-established and marked out, grassy pitches, some with tight access; open or part-shaded; all with 10A electricity; some close to beach access.

 

Low Season

Great coastal location for long or short stays; very convenient for Ouistreham port and many Battle of Normandy sites. The fantastical Cider and Dragons festival, 19-20 September 2020 in Franceville, plans to include events themed around sea legends, a Tolkien village, and Quidditch.

 

High Season

Popular family site, with plenty of room to spread out in the dunes and on the beach.
