For city dwellers, Cherbourg is only 8 miles away offering colourful farmers markets, harbour side cafés and brasseries for local catch, night clubs and casino. The port is the main destination for yachtsmen sailing from England and going onto the Channel Islands. Walk in the medieval streets and find cute boutiques. The ill fated Titanic made her first and last call on the Continent at the Gare Maritime, at that time a luxury terminal for transatlantic liners . Now it houses a superb center dedicated to the underwater world complete with a best stocked aquarium and a huge, recently decommissioned nuclear submarine (without the nukes) that one can visit inside.
For the nature lover, just walk or drive West of your door and you are in pristine scenic coast with some of the highest (and oldest) cliffs in Europe. The peninsula of La Hague is a hidden jewel waiting to be discovered.
On the practical side, a few gigantic supermarkets offer excellent value and choice. The nearest one is 5 mins driving from the gite.
SAIL, WINDSURF, KITESURF, SURF:
Excellent sailing club and school in 5min drive away. Rental, Group or private lessons.
