Hotel Moderne in Barfleur

Barfleur, most famous for its port a long time ago, is famous for oysters and mussels today.

Barfleur, Normandy

One of my interests is collecting historical postcards. With this one, we walked around town trying to locate it. The last mention of the hotel restaurant was made in some restaurant review forum in 2015.

This poster on site shows the Annexe Hotel Moderne, which is the building on the left. The one on the right is the post office today.

This is the the same Annexe Hotel Moderne today. We had hoped for a delicious smell wafting from the kitchen (any restaurant will do around lunch time), but instead only heard party music blaring at noon. The restaurant itself, a different building on the left of the square, looked very closed up, and in a neglected condition, so it was not worth taking a photo. As a matter of fact, at first we passed right by it during our search.

Normandy is dotted with deserted beaches like this. I hope it stays this way.
