An immense fine sand beach, a green Norman hinterland, a coastline steeped in history …
Welcome to the “Côte de Nacre”, in Ouistreham, at the Caen gates, two hours away from Paris. Named the Pearl of the English Channel for a long time, our pleasant seaside resort is resolutely focused on the sea. Formerly a fishing village which developed around the fortified Romanesque church of “Saint -Samson” and the “Grange aux Dîmes”, Ouistreham became one of the most prestigious seaside resorts on the Normandy coast in the early 20th century.
The sea air, the dunes, the beach huts and the vast sea make Riva Bella Hotel **** a charming destination on one of the loveliest D-Day landing beaches.
