Carentan Les Marais is a small, marsh-bound town with a small port, connected to the Sea by canal. Carentan is about 30 minutes West along the N13 from Bayeux. The town has a large gyratory square and several quaint shops, selling artefacts and excellent cheeses and other produce. There are also several boulangeries, including at least one featured on TV. The Port area is very peaceful and park-like – principally for pleasure craft. There are trips to view the nearby oyster beds (the wife gets seasick so we swerved that trip!)
