This former fishing village in northwestern France has a fortified old city that is still enclosed by the original 15th-century ramparts. With its historical reputation for piracy and seafaring, Granville holds a unique allure for visitors.
The lower area of the town, home to the local harbour, is situated below the citadel and is known as a popular summer resort. Eighteenth-century granite houses line the cobblestone streets of the walled city, with fantastic views along the coastline.
The Romanesque and Gothic church of Notre-Dame is worth visiting in the small upper town, where the barracks are also situated. Art lovers should check out the exhibits at the Musée d'Art Moderne Richard Anacréon with its interesting collection of works.
Accommodations and eateries are centred in the lower city, with a variety of excellent waterfront restaurants serving up delicious seafood dishes. Visitors can hop on a ferry to the nearby Iles Chausey, the source of the granite quarried for the construction of Mont St-Michel. Ferries also run to the Channel Islands.
For travellers seeking to explore the surrounding areas of the peninsula, car hire booked in advance can ensure a good deal and greater convenience. Relying on public transportation may severely limit your schedule, making car hire an especially attractive option.
