A short drive away is the bustling town of Cherbourg, which has been a pivotal naval base and ferry port since the reign of Napoleon. Nearby Mont St Michel rising enchantingly from the sand flats is best reached by car, as is the Vire river for trout fishing. The nearby town of St Lo was severely damaged during WWII, but several gorgeous historical buildings survived.
