Golf miniature

Reviewed By AnnaCM - Cambridge, United Kingdom

This is a great mini-golf, next to the beach in Cabourg. The 'selling point' are recreations of a variety of world landmarks (Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Statue of Liberty etc...) which form the obstacles on this mini-golf course. The holes provide enough of a challenge for all the family to while away a good hour or so. The staff are friendly.

Les Halles Medievales

Reviewed By rayrest

In 1066, it was the Dives estuary that William the Conquoerer chose as a place to assemble his fleet and also the departure point for his conquest of England. Here is a wonderful mini village that was built at the end of the 15th century. Many little courtyards surrounded by picturesque buildings and some shops and cafes. The tourist office is here as well. We'll worth a look around. Parking is free.

Musee de la Batterie de Merville

Reviewed By nabman11 - Port Saint Lucie, Florida

This is a preserved site of a German gun emplacement that was assaulted by British paratroopers on June 5th. Each casement has it's on story about some aspect of the battle. There is also a light and sound exhibit that recreates what it was like during the battle. They gave us an English guide to help explain things. There is also an airplane that actually dropped paratroopers and has it's own interesting history. The British started with 750 men for the Mission and because of conditions encountered wound up with only 150 available and still carried out their Mission. When you see the barbed wire, mine emplacements and obstacles, it' s hard to believe they succeeded. Free parking and a small gift shop.

Course is split by a main road with one side an attractive links holes in the dunes, quite interesting and tricky. Unfortunately Other half is flat, boring field although some mature parkland trees and water. Promised more than it delivered.

Le Grand Bunker Musee du Mur de l'Atlantique

The bunker was built in 1943/44, on a special design. I fact, as the coast was very low, the Organization Todt had to erect the 17 meters tower to increase the range finder’s range. This was the Fire Control post of the defenses of the river Orne estuary and the canal entrance. These consisted in six 150 mm french guns, on the beach of Riva-Bella, served by men of the 1st Battery, 1260th Coastal Artillery Batallion and four 150 mm french guns, near the water-tower, served by gunners of the 4th Battery, 1716th Artillery Regiment, 716th Infantry Division. On june, 6th , it received a lucky direct hit, fired from a 380 mm gun of the H.M.S. Frobisher battle cruiser which made the Bunker unoperational. During the morning, british troops of the n° 4 Commando were intrigued by this unforeseen concrete tower. They made two attempts to get inside without success. They were content to withdraw with their wounded men.The Bunker was finally captured by the lieutnant Bob Orrell who took 53 prisonners, on june, 9 th. He was promoted captain the next day.

Came here with the 3 children who loved exploring the different floors. Lots of displays and mannequins showing the cramped living quarters. The top floor shows the observation port and you can imagine the damage a few snipers or mg42's would have caused. Story of the bunker and its role on d-day is well told. There was one mannequin with the mad smile which scared my daughter - i had to put a photo of him in.

Pegasus Memorial (Memorial Pegasus)

A memorial to the first British soldiers to arrive in Normandy who captured the Pegasus Bridge from the Nazis.

Reviewed By Amelia M - Boston, MA

Learn the story of the remarkable British Airborne soldiers who captured a vital bridge, and held it - insuring D-Day was a success. The museum features articles and weapons used by the British soldiers. It tells the story piece by piece and also includes an excellent video featuring HRH Prince Charles. On the grounds, you will find a Horsa glider, a tank, and a few wheeled artillery pieces. But it is the original bridge that drew me there. It sits perfectly positioned, inviting you to walk on the deck and remember the courageous men who fought and died there on June 6, 1944. Go to the Pegasus Memorial and Bridge, "Learn the Stories - Don't Let Their Glory Fade" - you will be glad you did.

Thalazur de Cabourg

Reviewed By bernardw224 - Vannes, France

as this format does not allow for separate ratings when hotel, spas and restaurants are concerned, my review will only deal witht spa spa facilities of the Hotel des Bains.Having spent four nights there, we have used the treatment facilities as well as the open zones (pool, saunas, steam rooms, shops).
They are excellent and can measure easily to the best known in France. The staff are helpful, Professional and dedicated. The facilities are very recent - 2013- and offer one of the largest pool of the kind, equipped with many jets, and also used for gym coaching.
Regarding the hotel and restaurant, you can read my other entry Under the same name.

Village D'art Guillaume-Le-Conquerant

Reviewed By Nick E - Manchester, United Kingdom

Car park opposite but it gets very busy at peak times, mornings and anytime after 4.00pm try parking and walking around before busy times. The Village D'art Guillaume-Le-Conquerant is also opposite the post office. We found it very easily as we drove in from Houlgate. Some good shops here including on selling historical books, music scores and bric-a-brac.
