Things to Do on Holiday in Cherbourg Area, France

There is even a nuclear submarine (decommissioned of course!) which it is possible to walk around. Cherbourg itself offers some appealing architecture which can be observed on a stroll around its streets. The Thomas Henry Fine Arts Museum is well worth a visit with its hundreds of paintings and sculptures dating back to the fifteenth century. The Fort du Roule is a bit of a climb, but the views overlooking Cherbourg are well worth the effort put into it.

The house was very well-equipped and organized and charmingly decorated as well. We enjoyed the cheese, bread and wine of France, many evenings in the large peaceful garden, and visited many World War II museums and memorials, as well as the beaches, as the location of Les Cavées is optimal. Overall a very positive experience that we will most likely repeat!

Took our dog the garden has fence all around so she couldn't get out. Barfleur within 10/15min walk along road or beach. Small supermaket in Barfleur larger one about 10 min drive away. Lovely to wake up to view of beach and take dog for walk on empty beach. Would recommend house for peaceful break and hope to return.
