Our hotel facing the port of Carteret is perfect for beautiful escapes between land and sea. On the west coast of the Cotentin, Barneville-Carteret (made up of Carteret, Barneville and Barneville Plage) is ideally located for lovers of relaxation in the heart of nature and idleness on the fine sandy beaches, for those who enjoy hiking or water sports, and for those who are passionate about architectural and gastronomic discoveries. 

The beautiful seaside resort

Family oriented and very lively, it offers a great wealth of landscapes and an unequalled sweetness 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.

The Carteret lighthouse

From the hotel, you can of course stroll around 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 Potinière beach, the historic beach with its bathing cabins, or the immense Vieille Eglise beach, lined with superb villas, which extends over 10 km to Portbail. It is the ideal place to go for a walk, to do sand yachting or any other nautical activity: sailing, canoeing, kitesurfing, rowing, paddle...


The beaches of the Côte des Isles

It was in the 20th century that the beaches of the Côte des Isles became very popular, at a 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.
