The friendly family camping site Seasonova Le Point du Jour is located directly by the sea, near the town of Merville-Franceville-Plage. This is an excellent base for a beach holiday or an active excursion to the magnificent hilly, green hinterland and the attractive small towns with nineteenth-century villas.
Camping by the sea
The pitches of Camping Le Point du Jour are located along paved roads and are demarcated with hedges. There are few or no trees, so the pitches do not have a lot of shade. The nicest pitches are at the seaside. The mobile homes are spread over the camping site, often on the boundary of the grounds.
Sauna and snorkelling
The swimming pool with jacuzzi (150 m2) is covered and is located next to the heated paddling pool (20 m2). You can use the sauna and whirlpool for a fee. The sandy beach can be reached via a dune path from the camping site. In the sea you can practice (and learn) windsurfing, waterskiing, kayaking and sailing. Snorkelling here is also great fun. The area is excellent for a level cycling or walking trip.
Disco and dance
For children there is a playground and a few times a week also a mini club (English and French). Everyone will enjoy the disco evenings, irrespective of the language you speak. Hit the dance floor!
You can order fresh bread from the bar. Near the camping site there are several snack bars for pizzas, French fries, etc. Within walking distance you will find several eating establishments and in the village you can do your shopping.

Good welcome, pitches are allocated and it\'s a very busy site so if you don\'t like what you\'re given it may not be possible to change. Facility block by office rather basic with 2 shower stalls, 3 loo cubicles. Larger block not visited. Narrow site road and can be very difficult to swing into the pitch. Arrivals area poorly laid out.
Lots of movements at all hours for the ferry. Location is excellent though with good vet in village.
For camping car this site offers a beach side sunset viewing pitch. Or that reason it is a lovely site. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the amenities are typical of beachside 3star.
The local area and cycle tracks are a must see/do and the restaurants offer a good choice too.
Great campsite, stopped here twice now pitches never a problem always chose our own, staff very polite and helpful, great beach, vets in next town easy walk along the beach, cycle routes excellent,
This campsite was recommended as it was near to the Caen ferry port, however we found the pitch a tight fit for our 7m caravan, and had difficulty getting in and out, it was getting dark when we got there, and we had to leave early in the morning. However it is on the coast, and for a longer stay there is plenty to see in the area.
Very good position on a great sandy beach. The pitches vary in size and privacy. Sadly the site is let down by poor organisation and a lack of respect for their customers.
I accept that arriving without a booking one has to take pot luck and we agreed to have one pitch and then move the following day to another.
The second pitch was close to the beach and ideal for us - I asked how long we could stay on that pitch and was told, \"for as long as you want.\" After our fourth night on that pitch we were told we had to move within 10 minutes and were offered two other places. They said someone else had made a reservation for our pitch and despite us saying we had not told them we were leaving, we had to move. We decided to leave the site as it was clear they had accepted a booking for the pitch we were on with no consideration of us.
As an aside they sell cheap ice creams, marked \"Not for individual resale\" at Magnum prices.
Pitches cramped with difficult access. Messed up both bookings. Retained my wife\\\'s passport on the first visit, causing us a lot of distress as she thought she\\\'d lost it. Electricity was not working on first visit. Solitary warden managed to fix it eventually. parking to check in was limited causing traffic jams and altercations with others. The site seemed to put all the emphasis on making money and none on giving value for money. Will never go back
Excellent location right on a wonderful beach. Great for both cycling and walking. good for local shops and within easy reach of the lovely old market toun of cadbourg. Don't miss the Saturday market it's an absolute must.
We stayed here for 3 nights. There are two sanitaires - the one nearest reception is single sex but shower was cool and facilities need updating. The larger block is mixed sex but the water was hot and it was slightly more up to date. Pitches are close together and not as large as many sites. Best feature of this site is the lovely beach just next door. You can walk to the nearest town in just 10 minutes via the beach. Market day is Thursday.
We stayed at the beginning and end of our holiday. The site was very convenient for the port and accommodated our late arrival. It is situated on a busy road and their access road is very congested. We have a large caravan and found access on the site very difficult,luckily we have a motor mover. Our pitch was very small. We are looking for an alternative site next year.
Small pitch. Good location. We will be back mainly due to location and ACSI membership. Very friendly staff. Super beach, easy access. Cycle friendly roads.
