The Basse-Normandie region
I call it the equivalent of north west Scotland for France. Remote, wild vast beaches and dunes, no motorways.
They filmed a lot of "Tess", Polanski's film in the north Cotentin, and I am not surprised. There is magical light here!
One must not be in a hurry, though...
Great seafood, great lamb, great cheeses. Cider country, calvados country but there is always a good bottle of wine at hand too.
Surrounded by sea, the Cotentin benefits of the biggest tides in Europe for oyster farming and for unusual beach landscapes.
We are between the landing beaches to the East and the Mont St Michel to the South.
In the countryside we benefit from a rural environment and close-by sandy beaches...

"Blissful peace in stylish gite"
The gite at Carbonnel is attached to the main house where the host lives so while it is completely private with it's own entrance and drive, Ricardo is always on hand to deliver fresh croissants,… More
