Our hotel facing the port of Carteret is perfect for a beautiful escape between land and sea. On the west coast of the Cotentin, Barneville-Carteret (made up of Carteret, Barneville and Barneville Plage) is ideally located.
The beautiful seaside resort, family and very animated, offers a great richness of landscapes and an unequalled softness of life. Barneville Carteret has a privileged environment with its fine sandy beaches, its fishing and sailing port, its "sentier des Douaniers" (GR 223) which allows you to go around the Cap de Carteret. From the Cap de Carteret, overlooking the sea, the panorama is breathtaking: in the distance the Ecréhou, Jersey and Guernsey, Anglo-Norman cousins. The cape also leads to the Hatainville dunes, ideal for family picnics. They are 80 meters high and extend for more than a kilometer. From the hotel, you can of course stroll along the port of Carteret at the mouth of a deep and sheltered harbor, walk to the Carteret lighthouse (a unique observation point on the English Channel which marks the limit between the coast of the 8 harbors of the Cotentin to the south and a more rocky coast to the north), discover the charming beach of Potinière, the historic beach with its bathing cabins. From this beach, a coastal path takes walkers to the Carteret lighthouse which has been guiding sailors since 1839. The immense beach of the Vieille Eglise, lined with superb villas, is a unique place in the heart of the still wild coast of the Cotentin Peninsula. It is the ideal place to go for a walk, to do sand yachting or any other nautical activity: sailing, canoeing, kitesurfing, rowing, paddle... It is from the 20th century onwards that the beaches of the Côte des Isles have met a great success, at the time when sea bathing was booming, favored by the Paris-Carteret rail link. Since then, they have always been a delight for young and old, sheltered from the Atlantic swell by the Channel Islands and warmed by the Gulf Stream. The commune of Barneville-Carteret has been classified as a "tourist resort" since 2017.
