Cherbourg and its beautiful Peninsula, known locally as the Cotentin, awaits your pleasure and is just a few hours from European capitals.
A land rich in history reflecting the Louis XVI and Napoleonic periods, together with the focal point of the D-Day landings in 1944.
Yet despite such a turbulent history, the area has emerged as parhaps the most picturesque in Normandy, with breathtaking views, wide open beaches, undisturbed villages and green pastures.
You may even come across one of the heroes who fought for freedom on 6th June, 1944 somewhere in Cherbourg or in the beautiful landscape of La Hague.
When night falls, our hotel-keepers and restaurant owners will make you feel at home.
Do not hesitate to question them about 'their" Cotentin. They will show you how proud they are to welcome you in our beautiful country, receiving you in a warm andfriendly distinctly Norman way.
The President of Cotentin Tourisme,
