Just returned from a week at La Vallee, Houlgate. What a lovely surprise! Our mobile home (caravan) had a fantastic pitch (220), with a private little patch of garden and a lovely view across the valley to the coast at Houlgate. Beware, we did notice that some of the others just had a view of other caravans/tents and no private area. The accommodation was clean and well equipped (remember to take tea towels, hand towels and loo rolls) and the shower cubicle nice and roomy unlike other caravans we have stayed in. The campsite was fine - although when we weren't out exploring we were on our patio chilling and we only used the pool once (it was fine - clean and not too crowded). The campsite shop was ok for the very basics but loads of local supermarkets. A couple of nights there was a lot of noise (a nearby circus and a party on site) but no noise after 11pm and it didn't bother us - although perhaps if you have young children it could be an issue). Eurocamp staff on site were very helpful and friendly.
So many fab places to visit : Bayeaux is a must, the beaches at Deauville, Trouville and Houlgate were gorgeous and Honfleur was beautiful. We also visited the peace memorial at Caen although trying to negotiate the ring road out of Caen was a nightmare! For ww2 history, you must visit the Merville battery (near Cabourg) which was really interesting. On the way home, we drove through Pont L'Eveque and wished we'd visited there as it looked so pretty. Really enjoyed it.
