About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Stephen Drayton

I am 57 years of age, having been in engineering for several years, with much traveling, having spent 40+ years on the south coast of UK in Bournemouth. My mother and I have moved to Normandy recently to enjoy the coastal beaches and village life in rural settings.

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? Only 5 minutes drive to fabulous beaches of St Germain Sur Ay - or 20 minutes gentle walk, where the Channel Islands of Jersey can be seen. Regular ferries run from Carteret, a few minutes drive away, near Portbail. Cherbourg is 40 minutes north. This coast of the peninsula enjoys many beautiful beaches - with sandy open stretches within a large bay, free from crowds, only a few small tractors of local fisherman rest nearby, who collect the oysters. The rock pools can be enjoyed by mothers and children. This coast has many delightful cafe's, restaurants and promenades. Weekly markets of a variety of goods, from local cheeses to French style clothes, etc., always a joy to visit.
Mont San Michael is easily reached on the coast road D972 going to Granville, joining the D973, joining the A84 - N175 about one hours ride. The Chateau of Pirou Plage, on the D650, 10 minutes further down south, with its own moat, and boasts a tapestry, which took 11 years to make by a local woman

The Owner Recommends

Surrounded by history, safe golden beaches, quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

The east coast of the Cherbourg peninsula is awash with historical sites, including the Utah beaches, museums and war memorabilia (easily reached by car within 40 minutes). Travel further east and you will see many interesting places, like Caen, Rouen, where you can see the Bayeux Tapestry and the Joan of Arc Church amongst many other interesting items, and areas near St Germain Sur Ay include Coutances, St Mere Eglise, Carentan and Carteret. Local small towns are La Haye Du Puit and Lessay. Most of the towns have weekly markets, which are very varied and interesting.
