Immerse yourself in Norman history on the peninsula

Historic Normandy has a unique appeal, with a fascinating heritage that stretches back hundreds of years. Our campsites in Normandy are the ideal starting point to discover the region. From the garden of Stéphane Marie, host of the television programme "Silence ça pousse", to the Vauban towers of Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue and the famous beaches of the Norman Landings, the places of interest in the Cotentin region are extremely varied.

Normandy will forever be known for the Second World War. Your stay at a campsite in the Cotentin lets you see the landing beaches for yourself — a fascinating experience that is sure to leave its mark on you. Visit Utah Beach, with its Landing Museum. There's also the American cemetery at Omaha Beach, the port of Cherbourg and the village of Sainte-Mère-Eglise, the first French village to be liberated. Even old German installations can be seen at the Atlantic Wall.

If you're interested in military history, then the Cotentin is the place for you. Take a trip to the airship hangar of Ecausseville to learn more about the First World War, or go to see Le Redoutable in Cherbourg. This fascinating exhibit was the first French atomic submarine, launched by de Gaulle in 1967.

Follow a walking or cycling route around Normandy to discover these intriguing historical sites. After an unforgettable day jam-packed with adventure and emotions, head back to your Cotentin campsite to relax in the heated swimming pool or enjoy the friendly evening entertainment.

Getaways in the Cotentin

With superb natural areas and UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it's hard to beat the Cotentin and its many things to discover! From the geological riches of La Hague to the defensive towers hastily built in Saint-Vaast after the heavy defeat at the Battle of La Hougue in 1692, this is a remarkable place sculpted by nature and civilisation. The historic landscapes of Normandy are bound to put a spell on you!

During your stay at a campsite in the Cotentin, why not plan a trip to the oyster port of Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue in your programme of excursions? If you want to spend the day in nature, then take an amphibious boat trip from the fishing port to the island of Tatihou, a real bird-watching paradise.

From dawn to dusk, the Cotentin will surprise and delight you. Enjoy sunsets over the sea, the natural wealth and biodiversity of marsh landscapes, and the spectacle of fierce waves pounding against the rocks between the Channel Island of Alderney and the Cap de la Hague.
