Local Attractions

Historic Normandy
The region’s buildings – half-timbered houses, Norman churches, grander abbeys and towering cathedrals – speak of the wealth which built them, The lush landscape of the interior is one of dairy herds and apple orchards where cattle graze the meadows to produce the creamy cheeses and butter for which Normandy is famous, while innumerable bees busy themselves pollinating the fruits which make cider and the Calvados (apple brandy).

The coastline is world famous. From the wide expanses of the Baie Mont St Michel with its impressive island abbey, with beaches of the Emerald coast reaching to via Cancale to the walled City of St Malo. Heading north up the rugged Cotentin Peninsula are the sweeping headlines around Arromanches and Caen, areas that witnessed the D-Day landings, when Allied troops set out to liberate France and end the Second World War.

There is so much to see within easy reach of La Cahudiére. Visit the mediaval towns of Fougeres, Vitre, and Dinan. The coast offers you Granville, Cancale and St Malo and a little further afield the Bayeux tapestry, war museums at Bayeux, Caen, St-Mere-Eglise, Avranches and Cherbourg and the war cemeteries – one close to La Cahudiére at St Jame’s – one of the American war cemeteries.

The Norman coast has also inspired great artistic flowering during the 19th century as chic resorts grew up along the Cote Fleurie at Deauville, Trouville and Cabourg, where Proust based his famous A la Recherche du Temps Perdu. Eugene Boudin, known for his Impressionistic seascapes, was born in historic Honfleur and Claude Monet moved there in 1864, mixing with the likes of Corot, Renoir, Pisarro and Cezanne. Inland, Giverny is one of Normandy’s most visited sites, home to Monet’s famous garden.
