Gateway to Normandy
Home to the Bayeux Tapestry, the breathtaking Abbey of Mont Saint Michel and numerous World War II sites including the D-Day beaches of Omaha, Utah and Juno, Normandy boasts wooded hillsides, rolling pastures and a long, lovely coastline of pebbled beaches and steep, plunging cliffs.
The region is brilliant for outdoor pursuits such as sailing, kayaking, mountain biking and walking, and boasts a number of lovely chateaux including the Chateau de Colombieres near Bayeux.
Paris, the ancient city of Caen and Monet’s famous garden at Giverny are also just a short drive away.
