We came to the Cotentin to unwind. We took advantage of the beach and walked along the coast. We ate on the terraces of Cherbourg restaurants and discovered Emmanuel Liais’s exotic garden. A little paradise.

As I love the castles of the Loire Valley, I wanted to visit others. When I went to the Cotentin, I found Ravalet Castle, Bricquebec Castle with its dungeon as well as St-Sauveur-le-Vicomte Castle. It was perfect.
