There is much to enjoy at this property: its genuine 18th century feel, the experience of life in a small port, a stroll to pleasant restaurants on one side and a beach walk on the other, and always the sea ahead of you.
This ivy-clad 18th century typical granite fisherman’s house is located on the quay in Barfleur, one of the most charming small fishing ports on the Normandy coast, just east of Cherbourg (27km). Barfleur has been classified as “one of the most beautiful villages of France”, has a twice-weekly market (Saturday and Tuesday), all shops and services, good restaurants and cafés, as well as tennis courts and horse riding 1km away. Bikes can be hired at Quettehou (9km) and there are a sailing school and scuba-diving in Barfleur.
There is a narrow sandy beach within walking distance (100m) behind the church, and a longer wider beach at Sambière (1km). There are many others between Barfleur and St-Vaast-la-Hougue, particularly the beach at Jonville (9km) with its beautiful outlook toward the island of Tahitou (13km). Tahitou is a lovely place full of wildlife and has concerts and festivals; it can be reached by foot at low tide or by boat at high tide. The lighthouse at Gatteville (3km) which can be seen from Barfleur is the second highest in Europe and has inspired many painters and film-makers.
There is a great variety of interesting places to visit nearby: the village of St-Vaast-la-Hougue (12km), the cape at La Hougue, the landing beaches and war cemeteries at Utah and Omaha (35 and 80km), the aquarium in the Cité de la Mer in Cherbourg.
