This is a lovely area near the small town of Valognes & within easy reach of the D-Day Landing beaches or the picturesque fishing harbour of St Vaast la Hougue (its oysters are said to be amongst the best in France). The Friday market in Valognes is a big event in this region - traffic is diverted and the town attracts thousands of people who come to buy produce from around 150 colourful stalls.
