Lessay is a Norman town with its Abbey dating from the time of William the Conquerer. It has a variety of shops including butchers, a pharmacy, patisseries, newsagents, clothes shops as well as a tourist office, bank and taxi company. There are also a number of bars and restaurants, two major supermarkets, Lidl and Intermarche, and two petrol stations.
The area is perfect for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, birdwatching or cycling. And as we are just minutes from the cycle path (the former railway from Cherbourg to Mont St Michel), for your convenience we now have bicycles for hire.
