Things to do
The town of Bricquebec is located in the center of the Cotentin peninsula, about 20 km south of the north coast, 15 km from the west coast and 25 km from the east coast of the peninsula. It occupies the bottom of a natural basin a few kilometers in diameter, the slopes of which are visible for example across the Cattigny coast which leads north towards Cherbourg via Quettetot. The river Aizy, a tributary of the Scye, crosses the city from north to south.
We are spoilt for choice with our local beaches; a drive of fifteen minutes brings you to the sheltered cove at Carteret on the Atlantic coast, with acres & acres of soft, golden sand & warm pools at low tide; great safe paddling for youngsters & perfect for sand castle construction. Just five minutes drive up the coast is Hatainville; known locally as the Surfer’s beach & next door is Surtainville; another huge, long stretch of sand. Kite-surfing & wind surfing are very popular. Beyond these, you can drive right up to the Cap de la Hague, with it’s spectacular views & high, pebbly cliffs & beaches and more great cliff walks.
Daily boats go from Carteret Port during the summer, to Jersey which you can see from the French coast. Jersey is a wonderful island, which has a mix of both French and British cultures.
Manche is truly an area that has something for everyone from famous gardens and chateaux to the Bayeux Tapestry. All through the summer the big houses of Normandy host garden fairs and open days; we can advise you of dates. St Mere Eglise is 25 minutes drive from La Lande & just beyond is Utah Beach, the start of the D-Day landing beaches.
