The village of Créances, situated on the western coast of the Cotentin, has a population of 2014 inhabitants and is noted particularly for its distinctive language, social set up and economy.

There are several explanations for the origins of Créances, some of which appear to be legendary. A number of the local places, such as Hotot, Hougue, Brocq, Haut Dy, Les Dys, and Les Croûtes, were originally Saxon, Germanic or Scandinavian.

Créances’ main economic activity is market gardening, and is best known for its carrots grown in the sandy soil of the area.
