Girafou at Benouville is an indoor activity centre for children ages 2 and up - perfect for escaping a shower. But if the sun is shining and you fancy an outdoor adventure then Parc d’Aventure de Beauregard is close by, which has lots of treetop courses suiting older children and teenagers, but there is a route for children ages 2+, so everybody can have fun.
This parc is within a short stroll of the charming seaside resort of St Aubin-sur-Mer and the sites of the historic D-day landings. It is also very close to Bayeaux, where you can see the priceless tapestry depicting the Norman invasion.
Merville Battery Museum is a unique experience: the events that took place on the site during the Normandy landings are vividly recreated with a sound and light show with different smells to make it all the more real. You can also see the command bunker and huge gun casemates. The Caen Memorial Museum is also a fascinating place to visit.
Caen is well suited for those who are passionate about food and drink – it is the gateway to the Calvados region and is well known for its delicious oysters. Notable sights include the Château de Caen, the church of Saint Pierre and the peace memorial & botanical gardens.
