Normandy in October

We are going to Normandy on 17th October for a week to visit the invasion beaches/museums/places of interest.
Can anyone give us any recommendations on where to go and where to stay,are the aires open in October?
We are used to touring France but not the North in October.

It's not quite Normandy but if you have not been to Ypres it's well worth a day or two.
Nice Aire/ campsite and plenty of placed close to the Menin gate to park up for the night
We were outside the swimming pool and could use their toilets ( and showers if paid for a swim)

Enjoying our motorhome travels in UK and Europe looking forward to our new van a Globemaster campscout

All aires will be open but water may be turned off. Arromanches, 360 film show at top carpark. Omaha beach. American cemetery. Pegasus bridge. To name just a few.
Google places to see in Normandy.
A week is not long enough.

Cheap no good
Good no cheap

There are some lovely aires in the area. Longues Sur Mer, one of our favourite World War 2 places to visit, is the location of a former German long range artillery battery. Overlooking Utah beach.
Not too far away and well worth a visit is Bayeaux. The aire is right in the town centre and a short walk from the tapestry.
Oh and try to visit an orchard for some cidreee
