Cotentin is a land of contrasts and light, full of precious treasures, hidden in the valleys or exposed to the winds out at sea…

This land features vast and rugged coastal landscapes (stretches of heathland full of heather and gorse, jagged coastlines and sheer cliffs), peaceful bays and wild ports, inland Norman “bocage” (farmland) surrounded by embankments, hedges and stone walls.

All these magnificent colours have inspired countless artists who come to paint or portray the Cotentin landscapes.
There is a lot to see along the coast here. Around every corner, a whole different view awaits.
