Local information

beach coastline

Normandy is a beautiful region of France not only steeped in history but with a coastline and culture to match!

Where to start….for historians it is the home of Mont St.Michel – one of France’s most visited monuments – well-known for it’s impressive spring and autumnal tides. You can enjoy it’s beauty not only by a visit inside but on foot or horse-back across the Baie – it is a haven for wildlife. Normandy was the home of William The Conqueror and also played a vital part during World War 2 in the Liberation of France – St.Mere Eglise, Avranches, The D-Day beaches and the many cemeteries are testament to this.

The coastline and beaches are in abundance for those who love the beach, as are the country lanes for those who love outdoor pursuits.

There is, quite simply, something for everyone!
