Aboard your catamaran charter in Normandy, you will absolutely have to discover the bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1979, and the surrounding area and head for the islands, from the Chausey archipelago to the Channel Islands: Guernsey, Jersey, Sarck and Alderney.
Situated a few miles west of Granville, the Chausey archipelago lives at the mercy of Europe’s strongest tides. 365 islets spread over nearly 40 km2 appear at low tide while at high tide, about 50 islets are visible. The archipelago offers visitors an exceptional fishing area and a constantly changing landscape, so you’ll never be bored whilst at sea. Chausey welcomes 200,000 visitors a year, who enjoy the tranquility of its beaches where they can have fun kayaking, scuba diving or even fishing on foot.
The Channel Islands (Guernsey, Jersey, Sarck and Alderney) are made up of two bailiwicks: the bailiwick of Jersey, which includes the island of the same name and the bailiwick of Guernsey, which includes Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm. The whole of the Channel Islands covers an area of approximately 194km2 and has a population of around 150,000. Set sail for the Channel Island on your chartered catamaran in Normandy and disembark in England… or almost! British shops, pubs and flair… these islands are worlds apart from France. Don’t forget to bring some local currency, the British pound sterling!
Natural landscapes and human intervention sometimes combine to create exceptional sites. This is the case of Barfleur, a tiny port which nevertheless occupies a large place on the Normandy coast. Once hailed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, Barfleur owes its beauty to the charm of its granite houses set on a stretch of land jutting out into the Cotentin peninsula. Legend has it that was here that the ship that took William of Normandy to Hastings was built in 1066. Rent a catamaran in Normandy and explore this impressive yachting and fishing village.
Miraculously spared by the bombings of 1944, Bayeux has kept its character despite the passage of time. Once one of the flagship cities of the Duchy of Normandy, it attracts visitors to its historic buildings and sites of remembrance linked to the Second World War. But above all else, people flock to Bayeux to see its astonishing 70cm-long tapestry (in fact embroidery). Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is a striking testimony to Norman history.
