Le Grand Hard ~ Hôtel*** - Restaurant ~ Sainte-Marie-du-Mont


We have long welcomed touring motorists to our hotel, but we have recently decided to focus a little more on the serious touring motorcyclists, as a motorcycle is such a superb way to see this area. The entire region is heaven for the motorcycling and Le Grand Hard makes an excellent base, from which superb day trips can be made in a climate which is always temperate, on roads which are first-class, to places of enormous natural beauty.

Cap de la Hague (near Cherbourg and a terrific coastal ride), La Suisse Normande (aptly-named indeed, to the south of Caen), Mont St Michel in the south of La Manche - just three recommended destinations which highlight the diversity of our part of France. We have prepared 'dotted' roadbook routes for those who wish to follow them - and there is always someone from the hotel who will lead a group on a machine to show the way (if asked).

Daytrips like these often need picnic arrangements to be put in place - and of course we offer thatn wth contents of your choosing. And we deliver it to any agreed stopping place, so you don't even have to carry it with you. With our minibus, we're also happy to bring along familiy and friends, or co-riders so everyone can share in part of the experience.

We offer secure, covered, motorcycle parking on site; tools are available for minor repairs, as are oil, trickle chargers, a washing-down area and the necessary facilities including a prssure washer.
For larger repairs or machine recovery, we have arrangements in place with a motorcycle dealer some 13km from the hotel.
