Where We Are

---- St Hilaire du Harcouet ----


We are situated in Basse Normandie in the Manche region of France. The Retreat Centre is off the D976 near Saint Symphorien des Monts, between St Hilaire du Harcouët and Buais. It is in the Commune of Savigny-le-Vieux, and is within an easy drive of the D-Day beaches, Mont St Michel and its bay, as well as the beaches of the Western side of the Cherbourg peninsula. The area is known for its seafood, calvados, cider and cheesemaking.


Near Cancale looking over the bay of Mont St Michel




When we receive your booking, we will give you detailed directions and the co-ordinates for a SatNav in order to find the property.




Beach at Carolles - ideal for children, and reached in 50 minutes from Savigny-le-Vieux.
