Normandy holidays


The Val de Saire

The river Saire flows down its green valley toward the sea between the historic small port of Barfleur and the modern pleasure/fishing port of St Vaast-la-Hougue. The village of Anneville-en-Saire lies directly south of Barfleur and is just a few minutes away from many lovely uncrowded beaches.



The village of Anneville-en-Saire  lies on the river from which it takes its name. The village has an excellent butcher's shop which also has a small stock of groceries and acts as a depot de pain where you can pre-order breads or take pot luck. The village also has a bar/restaurant with an inexpensive lunchtime menu (and some evenings). 

It isn't always carnival but it is always friendly!


Officially one of the fifty most beautiful villages in France - and a much deserved title. The ancient port now has a small fishing fleet and is visited by adventurous pleasure boats. There is a good choice of restaurants and bars as well as a supermarket and two excellent artisan bakeries.
