The Normandy region

Le Vermont is in Saint Pierre du Mont in Normandy. We're located on the English Channel; our climate is Continental and, thanks to the Gulf Stream, mild year round.

Our region is well known for its historic sites (WWII landing beaches, Bayeux's Tapestry & Cathedral, Caen with its castle and abbeys) and its regional specialties such as cheeses, cream and butter, cider, pommeau, and Calvados, fish and seafood, and different types sausages, which can be bought in traditional outdoor markets or fresh off the boat, as well as in local commerce.

Normandy is a wonderful place, with a wealth of sites to visit, an excellent cuisine to sample, and a beautiful and calm countryside and seacoast to enjoy.

We are happy to advise you on visiting, eating, and drinking!

Saint Pierre du Mont

Saint Pierre itself is an agricultural village located on the sea coast, within walking distance of the Pointe du Hoc. If you are a birder, bring your binoculars because there's an ornithological reserve nearby. The Saint Pierre church dates from the 12th-14th century and is well worth a visit.

Our corner of Normandy offers some great sandy beaches, lovely country roads for rambling or cycling, and views of traditional Norman mansions, some of which are open to the public.

Just down the road is the little fishing village of Grandcamp-Maisy, which offers a good selection of restaurants on its seafront, a fish market, and a sailing school, as well as other commerce, including 2 bakeries and a butcher shop.

We're also an easy autoroute drive to the Mont Saint Michel or to Monet's home in Giverny.
