Rural delights, historic sights

With broad sandy beaches, fascinating history and chic seaside towns, Normandy proves you don’t have to travel far to enjoy an out-of-this-world holiday.

And at La Vallée, one of Normandy’s premier parcs, you can enjoy a glorious rural setting not far from one of those magnificent sandy beaches, too. The parc is scattered with flowering hedges and fruit trees, with some of the excellent facilities housed in a beautifully converted Norman building. There are two pool complexes and fantastic waterslides, including the awesome space bowl slide.

For kids looking for non-stop activity La Vallée has everything you could wish for with our great Kids' Clubs. Children of all ages can make new friends and develop new skills, but most of all have loads of fun. Parents can even get involved too at the Family Activity sessions.

Last year we had a lovely holiday on this site and chose to return this year. We had one of the newer caravans on site this year and on a positive note probably one of the best pitches. We were however very disappointed with our caravan that at only a couple of years old was tired and worn which is purely down to lack of care and maintenance. On our last day we had a leak from bathroom sink which I went and reported to courier (1st time since checking in that we saw a courier!) and all I got was “do you have a mop?” No offer to come and help! She said she world report to maintenance. By the time I got back to the caravan my husband had fixed himself and cleaned it up with kitchen towels! We did eventually find a mop in the caravan but no bucket!!!
Also site was generally more unkemp this year with the pool area leaving a lot to be desired! The pool staff were very strict
In the men wearing speedo rule, which is fine as most French campsite use this rule for reasons of hygiene (although don’t fully understand this rule), but I think they may have helped themselves with their argument if the pool facilities had at least been cleaned!! The slides didn’t look like they had been touched since the previous year we were there.
The bar staff we found were very friendly and remembered a couple of them from the previous year.
The entertainment didn’t start until 8.30/9pm most evenings which really is too late for most younger children.
All in all very disappointed with the site and the Eurocamp staff this year. Shall not be returning!
