Things to do around Lessay

Lessay is renowned for its wonderful Norman Abbey dating from the time of William the Conquerer. It hosts classical concerts and recitals each July and August.
Situated in a Regional Park, numerous forest trails and national walking and cycle paths are within minutes of the property. For gastronomes, why not take the guided tour around Reo - the major camembert producer which is based in Lessay. Also in Lessay is a Go-Karting stadium and nearby at St Saveur a water-sports centre on the river offering canoes and kayaking amongst other attractions. The Tourist Office in town has maps and brochures with lots of information about the many attractions that this wonderful area has to offer!
Every second weekend in September nearly half a million visitors come to the annual 'La Foire de Sainte Croix '. For the whole weekend, 32 acres of Lessay are transformed into a marketplace, attracting over 400,000 visitors! This ancient trade fair, established in the 11th century, offers thousands of stalls selling a range of products from animals to garden tools.
For those who enjoy cycling
or walking, the old railway line
is just a few minutes walk
from the property. If you
are feeling energetic, you can

cycle all the way to Mont St Michel! And remember you can hire bikes directly from us.
And of course, there are the many glorious, unspoilt beaches at St Germain sur Ay, Creances, Pirou, Portbail and Barneville-Carteret - all within an easy drive! This area is famed for its oysters, mussels and whelks so if you enjoy fresh seafood - this is the place to be! You might even like to try 'foot fishing' (peche a pied) over the rocks during the biggest tides so you can catch your own!
