We stayed here as a family of 5 in July 2014. We opted for a two bedroom cottage with a covered decking area. The pitches vary in size and ours was unfortunately one of the small ones but luckily placed in a relatively quiet area. The only problem we encountered was with the barbecue that is provided. It was very difficult to light and keep alight as there is no under draught. I would recommend to bring your own. The pools are great and very much enjoyed by the children. The campsite is set in a beautiful very typically French village with a pretty sea front and promenade with a few restaurants. The walk down to the sea takes about 10 minutes at a leisurely stroll. There is lots to do and see in the area especially if you are interested in the second world war. We found a very nice beach too between Lion sur Mer and Hermanville sur Mer. The shop was well stocked except warning for Brits and Irish they only stock UHT milk but the fresh bread and croissants were fabulous and no more expensive than outside the campsite. Warning also to wi-fi users....The campsite offers a free wi-fi service around the reception area. All I can say is avoid trying between 6pm and 11pm, it is very popular and consequently very slow. A tip would be to visit the tourist office, they also have free wi-fi which is much faster.
Reading through this review it sounds quite negative but we actually had a wonderful time here. The campsite is clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I was also delighted that we had a kettle in the mobile home, another essential for Brits and Irish who enjoy a cup of tea and often lacking in French holiday rentals.
