Night Trotting at Cabourg and more. Take in a show or have a flutter at the beautiful Casino and on some Fridays in the summer you can dine in style as you watch the Night Trotting at Cabourg, a very special evening indeed. Trotting is very popular in Normandy and you can often see the horses being exercised along Omaha beach.
The landing beaches stretch from the British beaches and Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches to our nearest beach, Omaha beach and on towards Cherbourg. Omaha beach is a 5 minute drive from Le Pressoir and on the hill behind the beach is the very impressive American Cemetery, museum, the gardens there are a tranquil place to remember those that lost their lives on the beaches below.
Live the high life - drive to Deauville and stroll the Promenade, have lunch at one of the many exquisite restaurants or shop till you drop at Gucci, Channel and Louis Vuitton to name a few.
You'll be spoilt for choice of things to do in Normandy. The most famous must see things are the many poignant WWII landing beaches and the world famous Bayeux Tapestry that tells the story of William the Conqueror and the Battle of Hastings. Nearby there is horse riding, golf, fishing, sailing, sand yachting, bungee jumping. Plan in advance and make the most of your stay and maybe one stay won't be enough!
Our local village, Trévières is 3km away, it has 2 bakery's, 2 butchers, 2 bars, post office, pharmacy, small supermarket, 2 hairdressers, florists and a thriving Friday Market with fresh local produce.
A most fabulous gite in a wonderful location with caring, welcoming hosts who will stop at nothing to help you. I travelled with 2 children and the property was ideal, clean and well looked after. An Ideal base to explore Normandy especially the museums and the beaches.
Wow Innes - 10 out of 10
Thank you so much, it doesn't get any better than a 10 out of 10 and we are over the moon that you had such a good time here in Normandy and at Le Pressoir.
We loved meeting you and your boys and it's easy to be welcoming hosts when we have guests as lovely as you all were.
Many thanks again for your glowing rating and for your kind words in our guest book.

Great place to stay. Very welcoming and helpful hosts. Everything you may need for a holiday stay.
Well restored property.
iVery close to the WW2 so ideal for anyone interested in this time in history. Normandy was empty when we were there and good value.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
We're thrilled you had a good time and that you found us well positioned for your interests.
It was lovely to meet you both and we're so pleased you made good use of the hot tub and that we were able to act as a taxi service to the wonderful restaurant in the forest on your last evening with us. It was so nice to hear from you that you'd really enjoyed that dining experience. It is pretty special isn't it.
Thanks again and Best Wishes
