The coastal line does not only show a long range of quiet sandy or rocky beaches but it invites to a great number of maritime sports. Influenced by the warm Atlantic Gulfstream, the average annual temperature is some degrees higher than you would expect to find in a region of north-westhern France. A subtropic tendancy, proved by the presence of palmtrees. Have a seat at the terrace of a restaurant in one of the many seaside resorts.
The Manche with its rich historical and cutural inheritance has numerous interesting towns and villages, museums, castles, estates, gardens and monuments.
The Cobra-la-Percée, one of the eight selected roads of the "Voie de la Liberté" (road to Freedom) runs near the Domaine and leads you to the Landing Beaches of the second World War, and to the museums and monuments, reminders and remainders of D-day.
The village of Lessay, situated at 6 km from the campingside, is wellknown for its open air annual trades market, the oldest and biggest of Europe, the second weekend of September. During the months of July and August classical concerts are organised in the ancient Abbey. Nearby there is a small airport offering touristic flights to show you Normandy by air, and if you dare, you may practise parachute jumping.
From Barneville-Carteret there is a ferryboat service to the Channel Islands Jersey and Guernsey. For times of departure, look at the internetsite Manche-Îles-Express.
