A timeless setting


Normandy is a region full of treasures and has attracted many artists over the centuries.

Whether you decide to remain within the grounds of Clos l’Abbé or choose to explore the local area, we have a wealth of ideas to help you make the most of your stay.

Natural beauty of Normandy

It takes just over quarter of an hour to drive from Clos l'Abbé***** to the nearby beaches.

Discover the wild, protected beaches of Le Havre de Sienne and the renowned seaside resorts of Agon-Coutainville, Granville and Mont Saint-Michel. You will be spoilt for choice, from the Normandy landing beaches to the jewels of our coastline.

Explore the hedgerows and landscapes of Normandy, the Marais du Contentin regional natural park, or the port city of Saint-Malo.

It is just a short hop to the islands of Normandy and the Channel Islands: Chausey, Tatihou, Jersey, Guernsey, and more.

Normandy - History & culture

Normandy is full of memories and hosts a wealth of cultural events.

Visit the landing beaches and museums to explore the places that have shaped our history: Utah beach, the Omaha beach memorial and Sainte-Mère Eglise, where the Battle of Normandy and D-Day landings took place.

For a completely different perspective, try the fashion collection at the Christian Dior Museum in Granville – the only French national museum dedicated to a fashion designer.

Then there are festivals, concerts, exhibitions and more.

Normandy - Sport and leisure

From walking to sailing to flying, activity lovers are spoilt for choice in Normandy.

Choose from golf courses at Agon-Coutainville and Granville, walking paths, cycle tracks, mountain biking, horse riding, or sailing across the Mont Saint-Michel bay. The GR 223 long-distance coast path runs from Carentan to Mont Saint-Michel, passing through the towns of Cherbourg, Coutainville, Granville, Carolles and many others.
Let the impressive views take your breath away. The Manche area will provide unforgettable moments for young and old alike.
