A comfortable Bed and Breakfast in Normandy, in the heart of the marshes and near the D-Day Beaches !

In a friendly and warm atmosphere, add a stop to your trip. Spoil yourself on your way between D-Day Beaches and, for instance, Le Mont-Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo, or Cherbourg and Cap de la Hague. L'Auberge Aux Marais, locally known as Le Rata, welcomes you all year round.

Sophie and Laurent take pride in ensuring that you experience a delightful visit in a welcoming yet simple atmosphere.

You can enjoy our independant comfortable Bed and Breakfast rooms, each equiped with a private bathroom and toilets. 

The parking lot welcomes all vehicles. Motorcycles and bicycles of cycling tourists can be parked in an area 'out of sight'. We can welcome up to three places motorhomes that can park for the night, with access to a bathroom and toilets.

Ideally located on the road which connects Saint-Lô to Cherbourg, L'Auberge aux Marais is located in Montmartin-en-Graignes. We are right in the heart of the marshes of Carentan in the Regional Natural Park of Cotentin and Bessin (Manche/Calvados). We are ten minutes from Carentan train station. We are 15 minutes from the hippodrome and the Race Courses Scholl of Graignes (AFASEC). And what about the D-Day sites ? We are located 15 minutes from Sainte-Mère-Eglise, 20 minutes from Utah Beach or Isigny-sur-Mer, and 40 minutes from La Pointe du Hoc and Omaha Beach. You can visit Bayeux and the Caen Memorial in just 50 minutes. You can revel in the beauty of Mont-Saint-Michel in 1h30, Saint-Malo in 2 hours or Paris in 3.

With friends or family, alone, in couple or in group, for a relaxing break, for a day, a weekend or more, pamper yourself...

The garden is accessible to all...

    The restaurant of L’Auberge Aux Marais is not a restaurant like the others, and Laurent is not a Chef as many others. His pleasure is to delight you with enjoyment. It is to welcome you as he receives his friends. It is to share with you his passions ...
