Recharge your batteries on a cheap weekend in Caen

Take in the friendly atmosphere of the centre
Caen is a charming and friendly place for weekend getaways. It has a wide range of cheap hotels, but we recommend the ibis Styles Caen Centre Gare hotel. It’s ideally situated between the railway station and old town.
Give in to the sweet pleasures of Caen
You’ll enjoy exploring the historic sites of this medieval city in Normandy: you’ll find them in beautiful surroundings. On Place Saint-Pierre, go from the secular to the sacred as you move from the spectacular Renaissance courtyard of the Hôtel d’Escoville to Saint-Pierre church with its remarkable Gothic clock tower. Not far from Saint-Pierre marina is Leroy tower, the entrance to the port in the Middle Ages. You’ll be stunned by the classical residences lining the lush green 17th century Place de la République. Walk just a little further and you’ll find yourself happily swept up into the lively atmosphere of the old town’s narrow streets with their old-style cafés and bars.
In Caen, chocolate always takes pride of place. You can try specialities made by the town’s many chocolatiers without emptying your pockets during your cheap weekend in Caen. Start at Rue Saint-Pierre, where Hotot chocolatiers sell drakkars, little praline mousse meringues which look like Viking longboats. Can-cans are another Hotot creation: they come in champagne, rum or orange liqueur flavour. And while you’re in Rue Saint-Pierre, make sure you get a few kisses too! The chocolatier Témoins have invented pink chocolates shaped into lips. In Rue Saint-Jean, savour some délices de Mathilde, almond paste chocolates made in honour of William the Conqueror’s wife.
