Normandy

A land of history, culture and traditions, Normandy offers its most beautiful assets to visitors in search of authenticity and natural beauty .

Peaceful and unspoilt, its marvellous regions boast an incredible diversity of landscapes, from the forests, hedgerows and meadows of the green countryside to the majestic white cliffs of the Côte d'Albâtre, not forgetting the famous bay of Mont-Saint-Michel, the meandering Seine valley, Norman Switzerland and the marshes of Cotentin and Bessin.

A destination for leisure, relaxation and a true haven of peace, Normandy has preserved an important cultural, architectural and gastronomic heritage. Seafood, salt-meadow lamb, cider, pommeau and perry, teurgoule, Isigny dairy products and Pays d'Auge cheeses are just some of the delights that will delight your taste buds!

A stronghold of William the Conqueror and the site of the 1944 D-Day landings, Normandy today is home to an impressive number of major sites that attract visitors throughout the year, starting with the very famous Mont-Saint-Michel and its prestigious Benedictine abbey, the emblematic Château-Gaillard, the Gothic cathedral of Coutances, the medieval city of Bayeux, the cities of Art and History of Caen and Rouen, the chic resorts of Deauville and Bagnoles-de-l'Orne, the magnificent gardens of Monet, the charming village of Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei or the elegant castle of Carrouges.

But Normandy is also a dive into the history of the Second World War through the D-Day beaches, the Pointe du Hoc, the Caen Memorial and the many museums dedicated to this period.

Finally, charming places like Étretat, Fécamp or Honfleur, which so seduced the impressionists in the 19th century, have lost none of their charm.
