“Fantastic location and incredibly cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2009

Am reluctant to write this as fearing that the place will be full up next time we go- three times in summer '08 we packed the car for the weekend and put our tent up in this little gem of a camping site. 12E per person including hot shower. Impeccable facilities that are constantly cleaned- dated, but very clean. Location is amazing- pretty much in the middle of town, 2 minute stroll from the beach and the fantastic restaurant at Hotel Arromanches- their take on the kir - champagne with Calvados & Cassis- is fabulous (only dissapointment is that the menu didn't change with the season- it was the same in May and September). Arromanche is also perfect for exploring D-day history and calvados factories.

Municipal is a small campsite located a two minute walk from Arromanches les Bain, which is the site of the D-Day Gold Beach landings and the Mulberry Harbour built shortly after D-Day - the ruins of which are still visible today.
The campsite is far from the "super" sites you usually see in France, it doesn't have ten swimming pools etc. however it does have really friendly staff, free hot & clean showers, free freezer service and is seconds from tennis courts and the beautiful sea side town and beach of Arromanches. Not to mention that it is ideally located as a base for exploring all the D-Day landing sites and Bayeau (the bus stop for Bayeau is right outside the campsite and the journey is only about 20 minutes!). It took us about two hours to drive from Cherbourg so its also handy for the ferry.
Arromanches les Bain itself is one of the livelier towns (although its far from a clubber's paradise!) along this coast, it has lovely restaurants and friendly locals. My top tip is drink the local cider and eat plently of moules & the local salted caramels... delicious!
