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.

An unusual warning to would be renters-the photos do not do it justice. This is a very comfortably furnished and stylish apartment in a very central yet quiet location. Elegance is the appropriate word for the flat and the square outside. We went in very cold weather but heating was perfect. The owners are very nice people who looked after us well and provide lost of small extras that are not expected in this type of renting but do make difference. We were given wine, beer, and things like tea bags and coffee, tissues and bread, milk and cakes and more that 2 toilet rolls! I would recommend a nearby Boulangerie in Rue Caponiere ( OK I admit my sister in law) for excellent products of both France and England and English spoken.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      I really enjoyed my stay there, and Sebastian and his mother were very nice people. The apartment was very nice and clean, and with lots of crockery and cutlery and pans; but I am not sure whether the red electric kettle was leaking. Then there was a knack which Sebastian explained of getting the outer door key to work; I had a few problems at first. Also, it does really need a wi-fi internet connection to make it a 10 out of 10 apartment for me. Finally, its situation in the sea-side town is very good, with the local shops and restaurants very good and friendly. Then the Bayeaux Tapestry at Bayeaux is only 30 minutes ride away; and well worth the stay at Luc-Ser-Mer. So I can recommend this apartment; as long as people realise the nearest 3 internet sites are at the nearby Tourist Information office, and at two of the nearby cafes; all less then 100m from the apartment.
