Out and About
The recent history of this area is based predominantly onThe Normandy landings. These were the landing operations on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 of the Allied invasion of Normandy in Operation Overlord during World War II. Codenamed Operation Neptune and often referred to as D-Day, it was the largest seaborne invasion in history. The operation began the liberation of German-occupied France and laid the foundations of the Allied victory on the Western Front.
The landing beaches have museums and cemeteries nearby commemorating this important part of 20th century history.
Less than an hour away is the magnificent Bayeux Tapestry which is now a UNESCO world heritage site.
Just under two hours away is another UNESCO heritage site, Mont St Michel. This is France's most visited tourist attraction!
For those that like the outdoors there are the beautiful sandy beaches of Villers sur Mer (15 mins drive), and an equestrian centre (5 mins drive). Slightly further afield in the lovely old town of Clecy in the Suisse Normande area of Normandy, where there is the opportunity for water sports such as canoeing on the river and even abseiling and paragliding for the more adventurous! The area is also ideal for those who enjoy rambling.
