Carteret

/A luxurious apartment in the centre of Carteret among top class restaurants and stylish boutiques

banner7

Welcome to our luxury apartment in Carteret. Set right in the heart of this chic family resort, the apartment sleeps four in two bedrooms and has secure garage parking. This luxury accommodation is only a few steps away from trendy boutiques and top class restaurants. It forms part of the imposing Residence D’Angleterre which is situated on Carteret’s waterfront, just off the Rue de Paris. The apartment benefits from under-floor heating, a large wooden-decked balcony and electric shutters on all windows. It has been equipped with high quality fittings, modern furnishings and Egyptian cotton bedding.

Carteret’s waterfront bustles with activity. At high tide sailing yachts and motor vessels make their way to and fro from the marina and trawlers unload their catch straight onto the quay at the Gare Maritime. Warmed by the gulf stream Carteret’s spectacular beaches (above) are safe and sheltered – they have been awarded the European Blue Flag for cleanliness. There are miles of un-spoilt coastline and protected dunes.

 

Market Days

One of the joys of being on holiday in France are the local markets of which there are an abundant number nearby, including the delightful village of Portbail just five minutes drive down the coast from Carteret.  Carteret itself hosts a splendid market on Thursday morning where one can buy an array of fresh produce, sea food, cheeses, cooked meat or just browse.  The local Calvados is also pretty good!
Elsewhere nearby markets can be found on the following days:

Monday Bricquebec
Tuesday Portbail, Cherbourg
Wednesday Flammanville
Thursday Carteret, Cherbourg
Friday Les Pieux, Valognes
Saturday Barneville, Cherbourg,
Sunday Barneville Plage (July/Aug Only)
