While in Normandy, we used Courseulles-sur-Mer as our base for traveling. It’s a small town on the coast famous for its oysters (25% of oysters in France come from Courseulles-sur-Mer) and June Beach (one of the 5 D-Day beaches).
The town is very lovely and relaxing. When I researched Courseulles-sur-Mer before booking, I read it’s mostly a resort town with the houses owned by Parisians. I wish we had planned more time to enjoy the city – so beautiful and the seafood and fish are outstanding!
One evening we planned to have dinner at La Maison Bleue which specializes in the local seafood and fish. I will discuss more in my next post, but Normandy is famous for it’s apples and produces a lot of cider and calvados, and the local cheese is camembert- so of course this was part of our dinner as well!
