Stopped here in 2012 with Keycamp, and came back for this June with Eurocamp.
The Eurocamp van was showing it's age a bit, and hopefully will be replaced at the end of this season. My only other moan was the Eurocamp reps were never to be found.......
To the site, fantastic location for exploring Normandy and the D-Day sites in particular. We were over for the D-Day Anniversary yet St Aubin sur Mer seemed to be the only village on the coast where not a lot was going on !
Fantastic quiet setting, strange when you access it through a residential street. Our van backed onto open fields, only noises we heard were the odd tractor going past on the track behind us.
Ideally placed for moving around though. The site is clean, very well presented and the Yelloh staff we spoke to were friendly and helpful. The pool complex is very good, though the main pool could do with being a little deeper (only 1.6m). That said, the weather was fine enough to take in some sun and have a few hours in the pool. My only complaint is the pool attendant was a bit over zealous on which entrance we used for the pool !
As with all campsite shops, you pay for the convenience, yet the service and selection was excellent and the bread and croissants nice and fresh each morning.
No issues at all with noise or rowdiness, although that might have had something to do with the many Gendarme who were stopping on site due to the D-Day security operation !!!!!
We are planning another trip to Normandy in 2016, and will be back to this park.
Recommended for families for a relaxing break.
