We are 30 minutes’ drive from Cherbourg 1.30 hours from Caen ferry and 2.30 hours from Le Havre and 4.30 hours’ drive from Calais

Nearest Market

  • All villages have markets, but the best ones for us are:
  • Creances – Sun
  • Briquebec – Mon
  • Portbail – Tues
  • La Haye de Puits – Wed
  • St Mere Eglise – Thurs
  • Valognes – Fri
  • Barnville Carteret – Sat
  • Briquebec is the largest & offers the very best experience. All markets offer fresh produce and have some china, clothes & alternative stalls as well

Nearest Town

La Mare Chappey is less than 10 mins drive away from Local shops in medieval towns of Bricquebec and St-Sauveur-le-Vicomte, a 30 min drive away the city of Cherbourg.

Nearest Beach

Portbail is the closest beach 15 minutes and is ideal for walks or for swimming. Carteret is a little further away 5 minutes but, in the opinion of all guests, a better beach experience with its soft white sand, rock pools and restaurant on the beach, also the vast variety of creperie and restaurants to fit all budgets and taste. Plus boutique style shops to browse through not forgetting the tantalizing patisseries Hmmm.
