The area known as La Hague Point is located on the northern extremity of the Cotentin peninsula and is nicknamed “Little Ireland” in homage to numerous stunning landscapes and authentic villages. A savory mix of cultures and traditions abounds. Key spots to visit include: Jacques Prévert’s garden, France’s smallest port Goury, Gréville, Ecalgrain bay, the Nez of Jobourg and the Biville dunes.
The Saire river valley is on the northwest point of Cotentin. Not to miss are Barfleur, classed one of the most beautiful villages in France, Tatihou Island with its Vauban designed fortress towers, Saint Vaast la Hougue and Gatteville lighthouse. This area is a treat for the eyes and a poster for the French way of life.
