La Manche is the most westerly of the five departments that make up Normandy. It’s named La Manche because it juts out into the English Channel (La Manche in French). So, what is there to do in La Manche?
Mont-Saint-Michel is at the top of most visitors’ to-do list. It’s located in the south of the region and is an island commune with a stunning abbey on the top.
The impressive island of Tatihou is in the north of the region. The coastline to the east of Cherbourg takes in Tatihou, Barfleur and Saint Vaast La Hougue.
Heading south down this coastline is Utah Beach – one of the D-Day landing beaches. You’ll also find Sainte-Mère-Église which is home to the Airborne Museum.
The towns and villages are full of history and heritage each with its own story to tell. Hambye has a fantastic abbey, Granville is the childhood home to Christian Dior, Villedieu-les-Poêles is an artisan town and Coutances boasts an impressive abbey.
