Visit Coutances with the family
Normandy wouldn’t be Normandy without a spot of fishing! The beaches of Coutances are home to lobsters, clams and crabs, much to the delight of your young beachcombers. Photography enthusiasts are also in for a treat in this natural haven where you’re just as likely to meet hedgehogs as seals – great for capturing some unforgettable family memories!
If you like getting lost in some surprising places, the maize maze is made for you! As you explore its 40,000 m² of paths and alleys, looking for your way out, you’ll solve riddles and discover the history of the site. Elsewhere, soak up the atmosphere of the Coutances botanical garden. Here, you won’t be looking for the way out, as you’ll want to stay and enjoy the summertime entertainment! The programme includes readings, concerts, and fun and laughter for all the gang!
Visit Coutances as a couple
For lovebirds who love good music, the relaxed “Jazz sous les pommiers” festival invites you to get into the swing! In the heart of the town, enjoy the street performances, exhibitions showcasing jazz, and a variety of other events.
Our favourite attraction? The Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey, delightful spots right in the middle of the sea! Opt for a change of scenery for the day and explore the fortified English towns and unspoilt nature. If you prefer to stay on dry land, enjoy a fairytale day out at the Château de Gratot, where you can imagine yourselves as princes and princesses for the day. Explore both the preserved parts of the castle and the ruins and you’ll be taken back for a glimpse of life as a 13th-century marquis.
