Havre de la Vanlée

Havre de la Vanlée: a confidential haven

With very few visitors on the Lingreville side, the haven is a real place of peace and quiet. Its naturalness is its strength and it gives off the secluded atmosphere of the edge of the world.

Located between the communes of Granville and Agon-Coutainville, the haven is situated over 3 communes: Lingreville, Bréhal and Bricqueville-sur-Mer.

2 roads cross this haven: the 375 road which is liable to flooding (during high tides only) and the second road which crosses the haven is the D592 road but this time it is on a floodgate which allows the sea water to enter the haven. The latter therefore marks out the grassland and wetland areas.

Two flora and fauna interest zones have been established there and almost 200 species of birds have been recorded. There are also salt marsh sheep which are very representative of these areas.
