Visit Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer with the family
It’s well known that the beach is every child’s favourite playground. This summer, why not let yours explore the endless sands of the Normandy coast? Here on the shores of the English Channel, there is always a new activity to discover with the family. At high tide, there’s sailing in every shape and form: land yachting, windsurfing, kitesurfing... At low tide, take your pick: gathering shellfish, building sandcastles or collecting the prettiest seashells.
And since this was the fiefdom of William the Conqueror, take the kids to play knights in the age-old castles of Falaise or of Caen, one of the largest fortified enclosures in Europe!
Visit Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer as a couple
With its 120km of coastline, the Calvados makes the ideal destination for all those who love a gentle stroll along the shore! An opportunity for an intimate tête-à-tête with the English Channel and to experience the beauty of the Belle Époque as you explore the most emblematic seaside resorts of the Calvados. Admire the superb villas of Hermanville-sur-Mer, set off in search of lost time at the Grand Hotel in Cabourg that Marcel Proust so loved, discover the spectacular panorama offered by the cliffs of the Vaches Noires in Houlgate...
And to add that perfect finishing touch, wander hand-in-hand along Les Planches, the renowned boardwalk in Deauville. French charm at its most irresistible!
