An old attractive town, its houses in yellow Caen stone, near to the coast and in the heart of Normandy dairy country. The town has its own marina which is well worth a visit. This historic area has many places of interest to discover, including medieval remains, abbeys, castles and WWII memorials to the D-Day landings. The whole region is known for its delicious apple-brandy, cider and cheeses, many of which can be sampled at the various farms. If you wish to dine out, apart from their own local cuisine, the restaurants of Caen specialise in fresh seafood which is highly recommended.
