The French region of Normandy is as famous for its landscapes as it is for its history. Situated next to the English Channel, the beaches and forests of the area have witnessed historical events as relevant as the allied landing that marked the end of the Second World War. Today, Normandy is known above all for the spectacular nature of its landscapes. The first to be attracted by this wild beauty were the impressionist painters, who captured 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 only a two-hour drive from the capital and is a great way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the big city and fill your lungs with clean air. But it is also a great attraction for tourists who visit Paris and wish to take a day trip, soak up history or simply enjoy a privileged natural environment. Don't wait any longer to book your rental in Normandy!

The area and how to find your way around
Normandy is a geographical, historical and cultural entity in the north-west of France, bordered by the English Channel, with a population of approximately 3.2 million inhabitants. A historical creation that does not present a united geographical unit and that is distributed between two great geological regions, the Paris Basin and the Armorican Massif, separated by the riverbed of the Seine.The best areas to rent a letting in Normandy
The main cities of Normandy are Ruan, which is the capital of Upper Normandy and the city with the largest and most populated urban area in the whole region; Haven; Caen, the capital of Lower Normandy; and Cherbourg. If you want to do a tour to discover the whole region and avoid wasting time on trips that do not contribute anything to the trip, it is best to rent several rentals in Normandy to make a route and sleep one or two nights in each of them. In this sense, according to the opinions of other travellers, some of the best options are Forges-les-Eaux, Caen, Dinan and Honfleur. Beautiful places where you will find very affordable holiday rentals and are equipped with all kinds of services.
Types of travellers and activities
Not only Paris, Venice or Bruges are ideal cities to enjoy a romantic getaway as a couple, but Normandy also offers magical destinations that will rekindle the flame of your love. The elegant city of Dauville retains a spa with a classic air, but adapted to modern tastes. There you can also enjoy numerous events throughout the year, such as the famous auctions and gastronomic gatherings, which bring together the best French chefs. In addition, the city has a casino, a racecourse and fantastic golf courses.Normandy for photography enthusiasts
All Normandy is spectacular, but the white cliffs of the Alabaster coast, with their 100 metres of drop on the green waters of the English Channel are simply like coming out of a dream. Moreover, given the climate of the area, the light changes every moment, so trying to capture with the camera the landscapes of impressionist painters 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 be able to appreciate the cliffs in all their splendour.

Top 5 Recommendations in Normandy
You can't visit Normandy without visiting the reconstructed city of Le Havre, the beaches of Landing, the endless cemetery of Omaha Beach and the Memorial of Caen. These scenarios are authentic open-air museums where to evoke the events of the Second World War.2. Follow the footsteps of Madame Bovary through the streets of Normandy
Walking through the garden of Monet's house-museum in Giverny and recalling his water lilies, wandering the same cobbled streets of Lyons-la-Fôret where Madame Bovary walked in Gustave Flaubert's novel or recognizing in the fishing village of Honfleur the seductive light of the paintings of Cezanne and Pissarro are just some of the activities you can do in the area. You can't imagine the amount of images of Normandy you already have in your retina3. See the spectacular views of Mount Saint-Michel
No other place like Mount Saint-Michel and the Benedictine abbey that houses to show the beauty that the hand of man can achieve 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 be able to enjoy the incredible views of the area, especially during sunset.4. Take a romantic horseback ride through its bucolic landscapes
Not only because Normandy is known worldwide for the breeding of trotters and thoroughbreds, but also because the bucolic and romantic landscapes invite you to get to know them in a more peaceful way. Horseback riding and hiking are two good ways to get into the region's natural parks, but also to enjoy the area's rich architecture, from manor houses to typical fishing villages and thermal resorts, such as Trouville and Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, respectively.5. Taste its exquisite cuisine
Normandy is the French region that produces more cider, in addition to being the cradle of Calvados, the famous apple liqueur. There is no better plan than to stroll among the beautiful apple orchards of the cider route to whet your appetite and then enjoy the varied local cuisine, where apples are the queen, either as a garnish of the surprising lamb from the salty pastures or as the main ingredient of many desserts. On the other hand, excellent fish and seafood can also be tasted, such as the oysters grown in the area. And as could not be otherwise in the case of France, the region also has excellent cheeses, among which the exquisite Camembert stands out.
