We had small barracks there. The vian childhood chalet is the costil where he spent his holidays during his childhood, until the war: "the house, I loved the house all in Norwegian wood, varnished in the inside; the sea, a balcony all around where we could see it.
Landemer is located a few kilometers west of cherbourg and durville-nacqueville, going towards omonville-la-petite, future residence of a future neighbor vian to the city veron (paris), Jacques prevert. For the vian family, landemer is synonymous with holidays. In the 20s and 30s, these, small or large, are the opportunity to escape from city-davray to come in cotentin.Among the cacti, hydrangeas, and ferns, in the midst of which flows the hu-bihan which flows into the sea, the maternal grandparents of boris, take them out, have built three cottages at the beginning of the century. In Norwegian wood, painted green on the outside, tile roofs. The three cottages were destroyed during the war to allow the construction of the Atlantic wall, and boris vian does not return to landemer anytime soon. "I have never dared to go back," he wrote in his diary. I have the livers, they have shaved everything, I'm going to cry like a kid. It reproduces in the heart-stroke (published in 1953) the Landemer scenery; it was only in January 1958, after pulmonary edema, that he returned to the region for a rest at the sea hotel, in goury, at cap de la hague. It will be the occasion of a last visit to landemer.
