Courseulles-sur-Mer

Town









A popular tourist destination for the normandy beach landings, and for Parisians during summer. Home to two gated basins along the river Seulles.




"Courseulles-sur-Mer is a commune in the Calvados department (14) in the Normandy region, la Basse-Normandie, in northwestern France, 1.1 km from Graye-sur-Mer, and 3.3 km from Reviers. Until 1957, the town's name was simply Courseulles.It is a popular tourist destination not only with locals but also with international visitors who come to tour the Normandy landing beaches. The population of the town can reach 15,000 people in the summer months owing to the numerous summer homes, owned for the most part by Parisians. The town is split in two by the river Seulles. Today the port of Courseulles bustles with fishing boats and pleasure craft, coming from as far away as the Netherlands." Wikipedia
