Holidays in Normandy
The area and getting around
The French region of Normandy is as famous for its landscapes as it is for its history. Located next to the English Channel, in northern France, this area offers a varied landscape with white-chalk cliffs and beachheads like Omaha Beach, that witnessed the D-Day and marked the end of WWII. Now, Normandy is known for the spectacular beauty of its landscapes. The first to be attracted to this wild beauty were the Impressionist painters, who embodied in their paintings the magical light of an environment marked by the abrupt changes of time. For Parisians, Normandy is a typical holiday destination. It is a two hours drive from the capital and a great way to disconnect from the bustle of the big city and fill your lungs with clean air. But it also represents a great attraction for tourists who visit Paris and want to take a day trip, soak up history or simply enjoy a privileged natural environment. Don't wait any longer to book your holidays in Normandy!Normandy: art, nature and history
Visit the rocky island of Mont-Saint-Michel and the Gothic abbey sitting on the top of it. The Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Rouen is also a very special and beautiful place to visit and it is where military leader and Catholic saint Joan of Arc was executed in 1431. Spend some time with your family and friends at the fantastic beaches of Omaha Beach or Juno Beach. Between the Seine and Caen, explore the Lower Normandy seaside and its lovely seaside locations such as Honfleur or Le Havre. The area offers great museums where to learn more about the past of the region as well as displays of Monet, Velazquez, Renoir or Boudin. Enjoy lovely walks and hikes in La Suisse Normande and marvel at the beauty of the surrounding landscape.
Travellers and activities
Normandy is spectacular, but the white cliffs of the Alabastro coast, with its 100 metres descending over the green waters of the English Channel are just like coming out of a dream. In addition, given the climate of the area, the light changes at every moment, so trying to capture the landscapes of impressionist painters with the camera becomes an exciting challenge. Undoubtedly, it is worth looking for new angles to portray the cliffs from all perspectives: from the top, from the beaches or from the valleuses, the dry valleys where the cliff descends to the sea. Or better yet, from a boat, to appreciate the cliffs from a different perspective.Normandy for romantic getaways
We all think of Paris, Venice or Bruges as ideal cities to enjoy a romantic getaway as a couple, but Normandy offers magical destinations that will revive the flame of your love too. The elegant city of Dauville has a traditional spa, although adapted to modern tastes. There you can also enjoy numerous events throughout the year, such as the famous auctions and gastronomic meetings, which bring together the best French chefs. In addition, the city has a casino, a racecourse and fantastic golf courses.
In the past, Normandy was part of England.
Top 5 travel tips in Normandy
Stroll along the garden of the Monet house-museum in Giverny and remember his paintings of water lilies, wander through the same cobbled streets of Lyons-la-Fôret where Madame Bovary walked in Gustave Flaubert's novel or recognise in the fishing village of Honfleur the seductive light of the paintings by Cézanne and Pissarro. These are just some of the activities you can do in the area. You can't imagine the amount of Normandy images you already have in your eyes!2. Visit the D-Day Landings area
You cannot visit Normandy without touring the reconstructed city of Le Havre, the Landing beach of Omaha and the endless cemetery in it and finally, the Memorial of Caen. These scenarios are authentic open-air museums with the monuments commemorating the landings and it is a place where to evoke the events that occurred during World War II.3. Admire the views from Mount Saint-Michel
No other place like Mount Saint-Michel and the Benedictine abbey on top to show the beauty of man-made creations when allied with nature. In addition to being an essential visit for the historical value of the construction itself, it is worth the visit only to enjoy the incredible views of the area, especially during the sunset.4. Take a romantic horse ride through its bucolic landscapes
Not only because Normandy is known worldwide for the breeding of trotters and thoroughbreds, but because the bucolic and romantic landscapes invite you to know them in a peaceful way. Horse riding and hiking are two good ways to get into the natural parks of the region, but also to enjoy the rich architecture of the area, from the manor houses to the typical fishing villages and the thermal stations, such as Trouville and Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, respectively.5. Taste the best of Normandy
Normandy is the French region that produces more cider and the popular spirit distilled from it, Calvados. There is no better plan than strolling around the apple orchards of the beautiful cider route to whet your appetite and then, enjoy the local cuisine where the apple is the star of the show, either as a garnish for lamb or as the main ingredient in many puddings. Moreover, you can also taste excellent seafood such as oysters grown in the area. And being France, the region also has excellent cheese, among which stands out the exquisite Camembert.
