Cherbourg (60-80 mins)
Exit the port area and take the signs to Caen , Rennes , Avranches and Mont St Michel . This will take you to the N13. Keep on this road for approximately 30 minutes past the signs for Valognes and Carentan until you pass under a canal – a short tunnel section – and take the exit marked for St Lo. Watch out for the speed limit signs and the cameras - max 110 km/hr!
Carry on along this new dual-carriageway, towards St Lo.
Exit at Junction 5, marked for Percy, St Lo. At the roundabout, take the second exit, past the impressive Department Council offices on the right and down the steep hill into Candol past the Petit Auberge restaurant on the right. After Candol and over the railway track, take the first right towards Canisy and Cerisy la Salle, the D38.
Go straight through Canisy, Quibou and Dangy following the signs to Cerisy La Salle. After Dangy look out for a right turn marked to Cerisy la Salle, D73 (about half a mile) and take this road.
You now want to take the second road on the left – just past a house, on left, with a rusty corrugated iron roof – the D273 marked for Pont Brocard. This is a narrow, windy lane, so please take care. Go past the farm and other houses that are part of the Le Deshayes settlement and at the end of the lane turn right (around our new house we built).
Please park on the drive to the new house and ring the front door bell. We will show you round to the Gite.
The whole journey takes approximately 60 – 80 minutes but please don’t hesitate to ring us if you get lost or stuck anywhere – Tel: 0033 233 478735 (if ringing from an English mobile).
