Things To Do In Granville

Published on March 6, 2019 by Chris Robinson

Granville Tourist Office have just produced a number of guides about what to do in Granville.

I picked up four different publications yesterday from one of their offices.

things to do in GranvilleThey've produced a magazine, a brochure about forthcoming events, a guide to gourmet delights and a main guide. The information is in English and French.

The main guide runs to 198 pages and gives an overview of the area. There are a number of villages and coastal towns featured.

The high town in Granville also gets a mention. This is a wonderful place to explore the old buildings of the original town. It's very quaint with cobbled streets and fantastic views up and down the coastline.

For a spot of culture, Granville is home to an art museum as well as the Christian Dior museum. The abbey at Lucerne is just a short drive away.

The coastal location means that trips to the islands of Chausey and the Channel Islands are popular with visitors. If you prefer to stay on dry land, then the beaches are family friendly while watching the water sports.

Inland you will find walks, cycle routes and horse-treking trails There really is something for everyone. You can download the brochures here.

You can also read more about the carnival, a cheese shop in Granville and Lucerne abbey.

 

Meet The Author
Until 2014 I worked in central London as a marketeer for a membership organization. Years of watching property renovation programmes on TV sparked a dream to do this in France having studied French and worked there previously. I left my job and completed the sale of my house on the same day (a stroke of luck rather than good planning) and headed off to Normandy. I undertook a barn renovation project managing the artisans’ workload. The result is a 3 bedroom gite which I now market all year providing me with endless opportunities to increase my skills and knowledge.
