St-Sauveur-le-Vicomte / La Haye-du-Puits

[ Cycle routes Tour de Manche ] [ Cherbourg > Carentan ]
  • 16.1 km
  • famille Level Family

The 15km stretch to the pretty, medieval cobbled town of La Haye-du-Puits finds you cycling along the disused railway line, flanked by trees. The stubborn stump of the 11th century dungeon remains, and so too does a reputation for witchcraft. Badly damaged during the war, the town has been thoughtfully restored.

Itinerary

The route keeps to the greenway for the entire stage, and offers beautiful views over the surrounding valleys - without having to ascend any hills!  You meet a junction to the north of La Hayes-du-P. with the greenway coming from Portbail and the coast.  There are small sections of shared roads upon your arrival at La Hayes-du-Puits.  Still plenty of stopping points along the route.

Not to be missed

 

 

Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte is famous for its fortified castle - which was besieged twice during the Hundred Years War. It still preserves a fortified surrounding wall, is flanked with XIV century towers, and dominated by an imposing keep. 
 
The Barbey d’Aurevilly Museum is located in the family house of the author (who lived between 1808 – 1889). This literary museum displays a rich collection of manuscripts and signed letters, letters, original editions, portraits, photographs and personal memoires of the acclaimed author of ‘Les Diaboliques’.

Cotentin Regional National Park and Bessin Marshes 
 
The marshes that once cut off the peninsula from the mainland, and which still flood in winter, are now home to millions of birds – making the spring and autumn migrations a sight of wonder. This is a truly magical place for cycling: quiet lanes, rich pastures, hedgerows full of wildlife and beautiful villages.                    

 

 

 

 

 
Natural sites of outstanding beauty 
 
Throughout the centuries, Mont Castre Castle has sat atop a rocky outcrop near the village of Lithaire and watched over the surrounding countryside to protect its citizens. Marais de la Sangsurière is a National Nature Reserve and home to a host of protected species – and a perfect place for birdwatchers.
