Situated on the north west coast, Normandy attracts families and those looking to experience the true culture of France.

Just across the Channel, Normandy is the perfect destination for a short French break or holiday. Whether you are looking to unwind in the countryside, stroll along the coast, or spoil yourself with fine local food, Normandy offers unparalleled choices.

Wealth of history

Normandy is a land whose past is fashioned by the sea. Steeped in our common history, Normandy invites you to go back in time to retrace the footsteps of William the Conqueror and to walk along the DDay beaches, the coast of heroes. Normandy is also the home of Impressionism and is famed for its cultural vibrancy: visit Monet's gardens, marvel at the Bayeux Tapestry or lose yourself at a classical concert on the unmissable Mont-Saint-Michel.

Towns, country and the sea

With its stunning coastline, picturesque ports and beaches galore, Normandy is perfect for a seaside holiday. But for those who prefer the lure of the city, the visitor is spoilt for choice between the shopping delights of Caen, the medieval streets of Rouen, the historic harbour and marina of Cherbourg and the Unesco World Heritage site of Le Havre. Nature lovers can head in land to get away from it all and recharge their batteries in the idyllic Norman countryside. Cycle along the rural ways, drive though the countryside of bocage hedgerows or just stop and wonder at the peace and quiet.

Food glorious food

Home of camembert and Calvados, Normandy is a gourmet's treasure trove. How about a typical local menu of a seafood platter with apple tart to follow, washed down with a glass of cider? If you prefer home cooking, venture out to the nearest market and feast your eyes on the wonderful choice of local produce.

Where to stay

When you are looking for somewhere to stay, Normandy offers a place for all tastes and budgets. Why not relax in style and treat yourself to a weekend in a charming hotel with gastronomic cuisine? For family fun how about camping or go self-catering in a gîte? The children will just love the zoos, theme parks, adventure trails and water sports.

A bientôt en Normandie!
