From the Series: Ferry Trips to France

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. 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!)
