Visit Manche and Calvados
Sweet escapes in Normandy
The Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Natural Regional Park, Mont Saint-Michel Bay, the D-Day beaches, the Côte de Nacre, the Côte Fleurie - discover these treasures and much more in Normandy!
On the hinge of the departments of Manche and Calvados at the “Threshold of the Cotentin”, the Marais du Cotentin et du Bessin Natural Regional Park offers such diverse landscape as swamp, hedgerows, coastline and moorlands, and is a nature-lover’s paradise.
Just 2 hours by car from the hotel along the western coast of the Cotentin Peninsula, discover the wonders of Mont Saint-Michel Bay. Mont Saint-Michel, built on a rocky island in the middle of an immense shoreline either laid bare or submerged by the powerful passing tides, attracts around 2.5 million visitors, pilgrims or tourists per year.
Heading eastward, in Calvados, the D-Day beaches stands as a memorial to the defining chapter of World War II, the landing of Allied troops on June 6th 1944 that began the liberation of France. Utah Beach, Omaha Beach, Gold Beach, Juno Beach and Sword Beach played a key historical role in the Battle of Normandy. Their World War II battle scars remain, such as at the Pointe du Hoc with its impressive craters left by bombardments.
A bit further afield, discover the lighter side of life on the Côte Fleurie with its dreamy resort towns combining charm and elegance. At Cabourg, Deauville and Trouville, you’ll get a slice of the good life, with immense beaches, Belle Époque villas, casinos and seawall promenades.
When you stay at the Hotel Le Cap in Barneville-Carteret, you’ll be able to visit the Manche department with Mont Saint-Michel and Calvados with Honfleur. Then you’ll be able to return to the hotel and appreciate the calm and quiet after a great day exploring Normandy!
