Unique benefits of property So close to the ports, our holiday property is easy to reach but hard to leave.

The Owner Recommends

Bayeux

A visit to the Bayeux Tapestry is the highlight for most tourists to the town. Bayeux’s tapestry dominates notions of the place, to be sure, but as you arrive here, it’s the splendid cathedral that dominates the scene and signals that you’re entering a glorious historic city.

Cité De La Mer

La Cité de la Mer is situated on the site of the old Transatlantic Railway Terminal in Cherbourg and is a new and unique tourist centre, of great interest both scientifically and culturally. La Cité de la Mer offers a fantastic 3h30 journey showing the many facets of underwater exploration with human adventure as its main theme.

D Day History

There is plenty of D Day history close by. Visit the airborne museum, Utah Beach, Azzeville gun battery, or see what life was like for the occupied French in the museum at Quinneville.

Mont Saint Michel

The Mont-Saint-Michel is one of Europe’s most unforgettable sights. Set in the mesmerising bay where Normandy and Brittany merge, the island draws the eye from great distances.

10 / 10 The Dean Family 1 July, 2017

We had a lovely stay in this comfortable modern apartment. Darrell and Susan met us on our arrival and couldn't have been more helpful, getting us settled in and giving us plenty of information on what to do and where to eat. The apartment was clean and spacious, it was great having a bathroom with each of the bedrooms. We walked to the beach every day and in the evening there were several restaurants all within 5 minutes walk. Hopefully will be back sometime soon, Carteret is a wonderful town.
