Cotentin – an Amazingly Wild Coast

In Normandy, the Cotentin peninsula is a must. The Hague, a land of wild coastline, rocked by wind and sea, a land of hidden surprises – this “little Ireland” attracted poets such as Jacques Prévert and was the birthplace of the famous painter Jean-François Millet. The gentle landscape of the Saire River Valley and the peaceful harbours of Barfleur and Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue will also charm you.

Travel to the end of the world and visit Cherbourg, maritime capital and old port of departure for the New World, which was also a haven for privateers and pirates in earlier centuries. Explore seaside resorts like Barneville-Carteret, and the picturesque island of Tatihou, the towns of Bricquebec, Valognes, Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte. Follow in the footsteps of the Allies as you visit D-Day sites.
