Went to CDN at half term on a tesco deal with al fresco hols. holiday didn't get off to great start as we flashed by speed camera as we came off motorway heading into caen( thankfully not had ticket yet, 3 weeks later).
We had not holidayed in France for 7 years following a disappointing chalet ordeal in 2006! However, this was one of the best family weeks we have ever had, despite the weather being a little unsettled. The camp was great, clean, tidy and very modern. It is very close to the sea for a holiday park, and the facilities were excellent. My 12 and 9 year olds were like pigs in muck, thoroughly enjoying all the facilities and making many ' holiday friends'. The al fresco reps paul and sandy were very helpful without being obtrusive, which is something I really like.
Oustreheim beach near caen , (recommended by sandy)great beach to bathe and to fly kites!!
wifi in bar area great, if avoided at night when entertainment is on!
Only moans were no tv in mobile homes( usual in France), and drink prices in bar were too high.
€5.50 for a 1/2 litre beer in my opinion is excessive.
Great holiday and would definitely return to CDN. Well done al fresco.
