Kastelen rond Ver sur Mer

If you want to discover the lands near our guest house, take the opportunity to visit some castles....

Between Ver sur mer and Bayeux, about ten kilometres from our B&B, take the time to stop in Creully, a small medieval town with its fortified castle built between the 11th and 15th centuries. This one is a powerful fortress with vertiginous ramparts. You will discover a beautiful octagonal tower, two splendid vaulted halls, a nicely flowered park decorated with beautiful lawns, 17th century stables and a terrace with a magnificent view of the castle of Creullet. Lovers of electronics will surely appreciate the small museum of radio transmitters and receivers.
