Apartment on Normandy coast

Activities in & around Courseulles

The town is lively during the summer months with many outdoor activities.



Sports


The popular sailing school offers tuition in all classes of boat from windsurfers to yachts.
Beaches are sandy & stretch for miles. 
The equestrian centre is on the edge of town.
Swimming. As well as the supervised areas on the beach there is also an open air pool adjoining the beach which is well sheltered for those days when it is windy.
If you are looking for something a little less strenuous there is a new petanque pitch & also indoor bowling which operates well into the night.
Two golf courses are on the outskirts of Caen & the fine Omaha beach course is less than a half hours drive away.


Shopping


The local shops & four wonderful bakeries, one with chocolatier, are just a short stroll from the flat. The busy market should not be missed. It is on a Tuesday & Friday morning & runs from the square right down the main street. For that larger shop there is a Carrefour hypermarket on the outskirts of town.
Lovers of seafood are well catered for. The oyster beds with tanks containing all that you need for that 'plateau de fruits de mer' are just a few hundred yards away from the flat. On the quay fish stalls are open 7 days a week with the catch being delivered direct from their own boats.


Restaurants


Rather than go to all the trouble of preparing that seafood you may prefer to visit one of the many local restaurants. A list of the latest favoured establishments is in the flat & guests are encouraged to add any new discoveries.


Sightseeing


There are many interesting museums along the coast. You could start with the Juno Beach Centre which is located immediately behind the Juno invasion beach on which 14,000 Canadian troops landed on D-Day June 6th 1944. www.junobeach.org
Arromanches museum, within sight of the remains of the Mulberry harbour, is one not to miss. www.normandy1944.com/index_alternate.html
