The site is lovely, situated not far from the beach & in a lovely region of Normandy.
The swimming pool complex is great although you may well struggle to find a sunbed as people are in the area first thing in the morning putting towels on them to reserve them and then some people don't come back until much later in the day to claim them - this is not policed at all! In hot weather, the pools do get very busy and again in peak season we found that there were a lot of people jumping in, throwing & pushing friends in and generally making a nuisance of themselves. Now for the bad bit - The majority of the Thomson (who we booked with) & other UK holiday unit sare situated very close to the main entertainment area/swimming pool area which is great for convenience but not great at 9pm when the entertainment starts! This gets VERY noisy from 9pm until 11pm, sometimes midnight - we stayed there Aug 2008 & enjoyed the evening ambience but this year it was very different!
Camping Cote de Nacre is a small campsite with all the usual French camping facilities. Not much for teens to do but excellent for smaller kids with a clean and well organised swimming complex and playground. Occasional night time entertainment and a good on site eatery. Shop small and high priced, free WiFi in the bar area. 10 mins walk through the town to the beach
St Aubin-sur-mer is a small well organised resort with many private holiday flats and holiday homes built right up to the promenade. A few good restaurants but you need to book for busy periods. Very clean beach with excellent promenading and jogging capabilities. Lots of seaweed but also lots of golden sand :-)
A great base for seeing Normandy, Bayeaux, WWII sights not to be missed, Mont St Michel, Lisieux, Caen (don't miss the Memorial Museum)
We just came back from camping La Cote where we stayed for a week. We booked a caravan through Vacansoleil and it was great. A clean and complete caravan. The shower was clean (with our own sanitary). A lovely pool and it was also well kept. You will not hear us complain about La Cote de Nacre!
