From the Vauban towers classified by UNESCO to the famous oyster of Saint Vaast...

Val de Saire

Alexis de Tocqueville saw the Val de Saire as a "long meadow that the sea ends on the horizon". An exceptional heritage of forts and lighthouses coexists alongside the pretty ports of Barfleur and Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue between sandy beaches and rocks cut by creeks. Without forgetting the gastronomy essentials such as the oyster of St Vaast, the mussel of Barfleur and the brioche of Vaast.
