Things to do in Caen

Visitors will find rustic farms, charming beachside towns, and reminders of more tumultuous times in the Normandy’s history, all in the area surrounding Caen. Visitors staying in holiday apartments in Caen will have easy access the area’s major sights, as well as Normandy’s distinct cuisine, which relies heavily on local cheese, cream, apples, and seafood.

-Un Musee pour la Paix is widely considered the best World War II museum in France. This memorial and museum takes a look at the heart wrenching events that led up to the war, how the war progressed, and how it finally ended. Special focus is held on the D-Day landings, an event that occurred within a short drive of Caen and helped turned the tide of World War II in its final stages.

-Chateau de Guillaume le Conquerant is an imposing stone castle had built in the centre of Caen in 1060. Further developed by his son, much of the castle still remains to this day. Visitors can scale the walls of the structure’s perimeter to gain access to stunning panoramas of the city, which include the nearby Old Town and several centuries-old abbeys.

-Musee des Beaux Arts is a well-curated museum which chronicles fine art from the 15th century to the modern day with a series of fascinating exhibitions. Many landscape and portrait paintings on display here depict Lower Normandy and its residents from centuries past. The museum also lays claim to works of art by numerous notable artists, including Monet, Dubuffet, and Rubens.

-The Bayeux Tapestry is a must-see and is about a 30 minute drive from Caen holiday homes. This 70-metre embroidery tells the story of the Norman Conquest of England through a series of illustrated panels and text and is widely thought to have been commissioned sometime in the 11th century. Despite being nearly 1000 years old, the tapestry is in remarkable condition and is on full display at the Bayeux Tapestry Museum.

-Omaha Beach is the most famous of all the D-Day landing sites and it played a pivotal role in the Second World War. On 6 June 1944, 50,000 American troops arrived at Omaha Beach in an effort to take back Lower Normandy from the Nazis. Today, Omaha Beach is a peaceful and scenic beach, that can easily be reached from Caen by car or organised tour.

The house was perfect for all 3 of our families and we loved the open space layout. Plenty of room and very comfortable and clean with all the usual facilities and amenities. Right on the beach front and just a short walk from Ouestreham itself. Plenty of lovely English spoken restaurants and bars and only about 5 minutes away from 2 supermarkets. In close distance to all the historic places which are a must to visit. We will definitely be returning to this house.

The owner is delightful and very helpful. A lovely quiet area. Had a lovely holiday here.

She was a welcoming host and made us feel vert comfortable. The house provided a wonderful residency for a group of 11 and there was everything we needed for a home away from home. A great vacation and holiday home!
