We came here to visit the invasion beaches and the site is excellently situated in the town only a few mins walk from a little shop, town centre, beach and museum. The site was clean and well maintained. The baker comes round in the morning in the Summer but otherwise it would be nice if there was a little shop or something once the one in town closes - the nearest supermarket appeared to be in Bayeux, 5 Km away! We also couldn't find ice anywhere and as we were in a tent we had no way to keep our beers and food cool in the cool box, so it would have been good if they provided something like this.
Arromanches is amazing. A lovely town with the remains of Mulberry harbour, clean beach, museum, a small selection of shops, restaurants and bars as well. It was a good base for exploring the other invasion beaches. We also visited Bayeux and Le Mont St Michel from here.
The staff were nice and we got our deposit back for the gate key with no problem even though we had to leave early due to car trouble. Toilets and showers were tidy and cleaned regularly. I didn't notice that our pitch was on a slope and it was huge, definitely enough for our 4 man tent and car. The pitches are separated by low hedges which is nice for privacy. Would definitely recommend this place.
