Normandy

This region in the north of France is steeped in history. Its varied coastline with chalky white cliffs is strewn with WW11 beach heads, including the renown Omaha Beach-site of the famous D-Day Landing. There are long stretches of sandy beaches with beach huts, bars and boardwalks along the sea front where everyone can enjoy the lovely sea view and children can have a run on the beach.  Visit the magnificent rocky island Mont St Michel topped by a soaring Gothic Abbey. The city of Rouen where the Cathedral Notre-Dame can be found and is where Joan of Arc was executed in 1431. Normandy is the leading region in oyster cultivation, the export of scallops and raising of mussels. There is also a lot of cider produced and the infamous Calvados -apple brandy. Other cities worth a visit are Bayeux where the Bayeux tapestry is found and Caen. Peaceful serenity can be found in Giverny – Monet’s garden.
