Friedhof
“The American Military Cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer is the most famous war cemetery in Normandy. The long lines of white marble Latin crosses and stars of David symbolise the sacrifices that the Allied nations - and here in particular the United States of America - have made for our freedom. The cemetery is an exceptional site, not in the least because of its impressive location dominating Omaha Beach, where the Americans suffered their worst losses. It take around 45 minutes to drive to the American Cemetery from La Forge and is well worth a visit.”

Museum
“If you are a fashion aficionado then the Christian Dior Museum is a must see whilst in Granville. The Belle Époque mansion was originally the Dior family home before they moved to Paris and continued as a sea-side holiday home (and a retreat during the ravages of the First World War) until the Diors were forced to sell it to the town of Granville in 1932. There are magnificent sea views from the cliff top and in a clear day you can see the islands of Chausey and even Jersey. Perfume workshops are held in September. Open: May to October Address: 1 Rue d'Estouteville, 50400 Granville, France”

Essen
“Artisan manufacture and sale of traditional quality local produce and very quirky gift shop. Inside the shop, you will see the decor is still in the old fashioned style, to whisk you back to yesteryear ! The French influence reigns supreme over the displays of gourmet food, regional and local produce. Savoury or sweet, there is something for everyone ! Here and there, the shop's style will take you back to another era, and the delicious aromas you tempt you to stop at our wonderful deli in La Manche, Normandy. ”

Beach
“Utah Beach is one of the two American landing zones in Normandy. This beach was created by British general Bernard Montgomery who wished to establish a beachhead directly in the Cotentin peninsula in order to capture Cherbourg faster, because of its deep water harbor and its major logistic importance.”

Beach
“The WWII Normandy landing beaches need no introduction. Your choice as to where you go. Lots of different museums. Re-enactments are usually carried out around the annual anniversary of the landing date (6th June 1944). All very sobering. Lamentably much of historic Normandy was destroyed in the process - mainly from Allied bombings prior to and during the Landings. ”

Zoo
“Zoo de Jurques We’re generally not a fan of zoos but I highly recommend this one. It has active breeding programmes with a heavy influence on education. Set in a huge forest it feels far from ‘zoo like’. The enclosures are huge, appropriate and well kept. Animals are all in very good condition and the keepers are friendly and helpful. There are 2 paths to complete with various feeding times to view, which are easy to follow. Parking is free. There are lovely play areas by the cafes and gift shops. The picnic area is well appointed by car park area P5. *Go in to the gift shop and request to leave for your picnic. They will stamp your hand and let you out!”

La commune d'Auderville est située à la pointe de la Hague longée par le Raz Blanchard, l'un des plus forts courants de marée du monde dus aux hauts fonds entre le cap de la Hague et les îles Anglo-Normandes.
