Activities

There is a great deal to see in the surrounding area. From picturesque villages to quaint fishing ports to impressive 'manoirs' and chateaux, all of which bear witness to the rich history of Normandy.

Time really has stopped here, or has at least been slowed down, as is evidenced by the peace and quiet, the unspoilt and largely unaltered buildings that are to be seen everywhere, and by the pace of rural Norman life.

France's second biggest tourist attraction is 'Mont Saint Michel' - a little iver an hour away to the south. Many other excellent destinations are within easy reach, as the information packs in every room attest. On top of which, Normandy is best known for the D-Day landings. The beaches, the museums, the ubiquitous small memorials to brave men who perished - the whole area is a living testament to those terrible days. All of there are well worth a visit, not forgetting the impressive (and recently revamped) 'Musée du Débarquement d'Utah Beach', which is a mere bicycle ride away.

Le Grand Hard is located in the stunning nature reserve ‘Le Parc des Marais’ with its grassy pastures and swamps, its typical scenery of hedges and verges veined with numerous rivers and ditches.

Henceforth, our hotel is the ideal base for a ride by carmotorcyclebike or mountainbikehorse or carriage or just a nice stroll on foot. All for one single purpose: your utter relaxation.

We have mapped out tracks, roadbooks and GPS-routes. With our knowledge, we outline routes 'à la carte', taking into account the degree of difficulty and length.
