This is definitely coffee with a view! Yesterday I visited a local heritage site and came back via the town of Granville. It’s one of my favourite towns with a harbour, plenty of seafood restaurants and a quintessentially old town full of history. A friend and I wanted a coffee in Granville so we headed to the bar of the Ibis hotel.
It overlooks the Port de Plaisance and you can access it via La Rue des Isles. There’s parking to the rear but when you walk round to the front, this is the view you get. The bar has a wrap-round deck that is pretty sheltered and has awnings if you prefer a shady spot. There are also tables in the sun. If the weather’s not so great then the indoor bar has huge walls of glass to give you a great view.
From here you can watch the comings and goings of the boats in the harbour. There’s also a walkway that leads round to the harbour wall. That means it’s a great place for people watching too.
You can also take a walk along the harbour wall walkway and enjoy this view.
If you’re looking for a coffee in Granville then this is a great place to try out. Just choose a place to sit and someone will come over to take your order. The drinks are brought out to you together with the bill and you go up to the bar to pay when you’re ready to leave.
