Grandcamp-Maisy is a coastal town with a bustling atmosphere in the summer and miles of beautiful sandy beaches. Here you can visit the fishing port, indulge in water sports and enjoy the beach with the family including fishing from the shore, supervised swimming, windsurfer and kayak hire. You can enjoy fresh fish, oysters and scallops Jacques in the many restaurants overlooking the port and waterfront.

Grandcamp Maisey is an excellent jumping off point to tour nearby historic WWII sites:

In 1944 the town of Maisy was the site of a German heavy artillery battery and the headquarters for the sector.

Until recently, the site was overgrown and had been covered by US engineers before the end of 1944 - well before any historians had a chance to examine the site. British military historian Gary Sterne rediscovered the site after finding a German map, and has purchased the site and turned it into a museum with over 21⁄2 miles of original German trenches and bunkers.

From his research and newly released (previously top secret papers), it is obvious that the site is many times larger than was originally thought. The labyrinth of trenches and tunnels had remained hidden for around 60 years. It contains office bunkers, supplies buildings, general quarters, radio rooms, and many other blocks, including an underground hospital (one of three which has been uncovered and can be visited).

Located between Omaha Beach and Utah Beach, Pointe du Hoc, just a few miles from the cottage along the coast, is one of the key heritage sites along the D-Day Landing beaches in Normandy.

Pointe du Hoc, a strategic element of the Atlantic Wall, was stormed by Colonel Rudder's American Rangers on the morning of the 6th of June 1944 - D-Day. it proved to be one of the toughest battles to be fought during the Normandy Landings: of the 225 Rangers that began the assault, only 90 were still fit to continue their fight for France's Liberation.

The scars of the battle can still be seen to this very day. During your visit, you will discover an artillery battery, complete with its firing command post, casemates, shelters, museum and Information panels on site. The site is open for unaccompanied visits, free of charge.

A few steps from the landing beaches you will discover ancient architectural heritage farms and churches, castle ruins, and natural landscapes of extraordinary diversity including coastal marshes and woods.

- Guided tour of a cider farm in Saint -Germain -du -Pert Wednesday afternoon.

- Bayeux: Tapestry of Queen Matilda, Old Bayeux Cathedral and old town about 30 minutes drive by car

The northern French town of Bayeux is best known for the tapestry that depicts the 11th-century Norman Conquest. You can see it on display at the Bayeux Tapestry Museum. The cloth’s original home was the Bayeux Cathedral, which still towers over the area. Inside you’ll find beautifully detailed murals and haunting crypts.
