Quai Barbey d’Aurevilly
Nestled in a quiet harbour, itself sheltered by the Cap of Carteret, the ‘Port des Isles’, located between Northern Brittany and the South of England, is at the centre of an exceptional area for sailing.
The Port des Isles is a natural and historic port on the west coast of the Cotentin Peninsula, within equal distance of St Helier (Jersey), Saint Peter Port (guernsey) and Alderney. Also a friend and neighbour to gorey and Sark, it is a popular centre for fishing, sailing and other water sports. Barneville-Carteret, a family sea-side resort, is a popular holiday destination with those who adore wide open spaces in both coastal and inland rural locations.
The long, wide beaches backed by gentle sand-dunes which help to protect a variety of species, the cultural heritage which is visible all along the Côte des Isles, along with the beauty of the landscape further inland, all go to make this an extremely attractive area.
Also worth a visit whilst in Barneville-Carteret are the feudal chapel of Saint Louis, and the Church of Barneville, which was built during Roman times.
