Fancy a walk in the countryside, away from the crowds? We understand you! The Cœur de Nacre team has come up with 3 ideas for walks that are ideal for recharging your batteries.
Far from the urban hustle and bustle, there are several small hiking trails just a stone’s throw from the Cote de Nacre. Put on your shoes and follow us !
Plumetot to Cresserons walk
5.9 km, 2h, easy
Want to escape from the seaside? Just a few kilometres from the coast are two villages where you can recharge your batteries and marvel at the beauty of the place !
Set in time, the village of Plumetot charms us with its old stones and its narrow streets. A true rural stopover in the Cœur de Nacre, its green lanes offer a panorama of the sea as well as the countryside and are a good place to go for a walk with your family or with your dog.
Take a stroll to its neighbour, Cresserons. Its architecture and its religious past are surprising. It was once a Protestant village, but today only vestiges of that era remain ! Nevertheless, go through the door of the Church of Saint Jacques and you will be amazed.
Walk to discover the secrets of Douvres-la-Delivrande
3.6 km, 2h, easy
During your walk, follow the historic streets of the town of Douvres-la-Delivrande while admiring its remarkable buildings and monuments such as the 19th century neo-Gothic Basilica of Notre-Dame de la Delivrande or the Domaine de la Baronnie, the former country residence of the bishops of the town of Bayeux, listed as a Historic Monument since 1995.

Charming little village at the gateway to the Bessin ! Located in the lower Seulles Valley, Reviers has developed at the confluence of 3 rivers. A real green lung and a gateway to the Bessin, this village seduces by its quietness and its heritage. Washhouses, mills and Creully stone houses give Reviers an authentic character.
A small village preserved from the bombings of the D-Day landings of 6 June 1944, hit by a single bomb in the Rue des Moulins, the built heritage of Reviers is remarkable. The majority of the old farms and houses, built between the 18th and 19th centuries, are made of Creully stone, extracted from quarries located on the road to Amblie, a few kilometres away. From creamy white to ochre blond, the colour of the limestone varies according to the time of day and the season… a beautiful sight for the eyes !
