Photos to Tempt You to the Lovely St Vaast La Hougue Normandy Region of France

To be perfectly honest with you it is a few years since we visited this lovely place in France.

We were first invited there by some friends who then had a house very close by.  They have now moved to their UK home, but we have many happy memories of this beautiful place.

And although I don't really know much about the history I do know that it is situated in the North of France in the Manche Normandy Region.

And a little more info taken from Wikepedia 

'Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue is situated in the Manche département, in the Basse-Normandie région. It is in the Quettehou canton, of the Cherbourg arrondissement. The town had a population of 2,097 in 1999. The island of Tatihou forms part of the Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue commune'
So now you know and so do I :)  Actually if you are interested in history, there is quite a bit that may well interest you here

I didn't know that St Vaast La Hougue is twinned with Bridport in Dorset, which isn't far from us in The New Forest.

Good weather always helps

On the occasions we visited, we were lucky enough to have good weather.

At least it meant as we wandered around we could take some photos without getting wet or blown away.

A great place to visit for a short break and if you go for a longer break, there are many places to visit close by like Barfleur.  According to the Travel Guide there are plenty of tours you can do too.

Now some photos to tempt you to visit the pretty St Vaast La Hougue
Ooh think I may well have tempted myself.  We may have to go back for another look.

Thanks again for visiting.... and remember you can feature here.

Until next time, safe travels. 👜📷💼
