With this in mind, the town does offer a few activities for you to enjoy and these include the likes of swimming, tennis, walking and rambling, fishing, cycling, horseback riding, golf and when none of the above take your fancy - why not take a seat in a local café and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a cheeky glass of wine (or two!).

We had 5 great days travelling from the house to all the major sites and then back into Carentan at night where there is a fine selection of restaurants for meals. We took our 2 grandchildren with us (10/14) and spent an afternoon in Carentan public swimming pool which is the best I have ever been in. So clean and a tremendous "wave track" which takes you round extremely quickly. The owners of this property live next door and are on hand for any little thing you made need to ask. They will however Leave you completely in peace if you want privacy. Local huge supermarket is at the end of the street for everything you may need. Would return to this house In an instant.

The location was excellent, the facilities were perfect for our stay. We are keen cyclists, and cycled every day to all the surrounding villages and towns. We would definitely recommend it to others.
