D-Day landing beaches
Granville, the ideal holiday destination!
Set in the heart of Mont-Saint-Michel Bay, the town of Granville rises proudly over the shores of the English Channel. It is one of only a handful of municipalities in France to have an island district, the Chausey Islands, which will steal your heart with their deserted island landscapes. However, Normandy has so much more to offer and its succulent culinary specialities could add some extra flavour to your holiday! So don’t delay – set off now to discover the “Monaco of the North”, huddled up on its rock and offering an endless panorama of beaches!
After a lovely long walk along Granville’s beaches, head back to relax and enjoy the heated and covered swimming pool at your Sandaya campsite. For the more active among you, you can spend as much energy as you like on the various sports pitches. Then, after an action-packed day, make the most of your mobile home’s terrace for a relaxing evening recharging your batteries, ready to start again the next day!

Along the sandy Normandy coastline, the waymarked trails of the GR 223, known as the “Customs Path”, will take you to Mont-Saint-Michel or, for the most athletic, all the way to the town of Le Havre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Come here for a romantic escapade on foot, on horseback or on your bicycles and discover “the most beautiful kilometre in France” as the path winds its way through some breathtaking landscapes.
If you’re a fashion lover, then a tour of Christian Dior’s childhood home is not to be missed.
