Alan Rogers Review

Hermanville-sur-Mer can be found on the Côte de Nacre, close to the broad, sandy Sword beach and the ferry terminal at Ouistreham. Les Vattaux is located 600 m. from the beach and has 377 pitches, but only 49 are for touring. These are on leel grass and are situated together in the centre of the site. All have electricity (10A). Twenty fully equipped mobile homes are also available to rent. On-site amenities include a swimming pool and multisports field. Only very basic amenities are available in low season, but the site becomes livelier in peak season with a popular children’s club and various competitions and tournaments. Evening entertainment includes discos and karaoke sessions.

There is a great deal to see in the area, and Les Vattaux is well placed for exploring the D-Day beaches and the region’s many interesting museums. Bayeux is close at hand and is best known, of course, for its tapestry and sumptuous cathedral. It also has a wonderful Saturday morning market. The Cotentin peninsula has miles of exhilarating cliff-top walks, and details are available in reception.


A single toilet block at the site entrance has hot, pushbutton showers, washbasins in cubicles and basic facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machines and dryers. Bar serving snacks and takeaway (July/Aug). Swimming pool (15/6-15/9). Play area. Football pitch. Bowling alley. Activity and entertainment programme. Free WiFi over part of site. Mobile homes and chalets to rent.

The site is located to the west of the ferry port at Ouistreham. From there take the westbound D614 (Route de Lion) towards Lion-sur-Mer. Shortly before reaching Lion, head inland on D60b towards Hermanville-sur-Mer and the site is well signed.
