The historic, French region of Normandy is known for its gorgeous beaches, seaside cliffs, rich history (the remarkable legacy of the Normans particularly), medieval towns and of course, delicious cheese – the perfect combination for a French getaway! A destination of high art and culture, Normandy boasts an unforgettable stay, beside the tranquil River Seine…
Head to the northern region of France, dipping into the English Channel, home to Le Havre, Caen and Rouen; the three main cities. There are plenty of natural beauties to admire here, from lush meadows to quiet, pebbly beaches, and world-famous cemeteries and memorials, in memory of the D-Day invasion during World War Two. Of course, if you’re dreaming of sandy spots to relax on, almost the whole of the west coast here is an endless beach resort, with family-friendly areas and bordering, charming coastal towns.
There are many memorials at the beaches and along the Normandy coastline following the D-Day landings in 1944. The Mémorial de Caen is a popular museum and war memorial located in Caen, which commemorates the war and Battle for Caen.
Why not explore Caen on your holiday to Normandy, the capital of the Calvados department? As one of the oldest university towns in France, Caen is a vibrant city home to a handful of fantastic museums, fashion boutiques and historic sites – notably as the home town of William the Conqueror.

The Normandy region is actually home to some of France’s best museums, including the Museum of the Battle of Normandy, Airborne Museum and the Museum of the Bayeux Tapestry.
So why not head to Le Havre on your Normandy holiday? The major port, where the Seine River meets the English Channel, is a popular entry point for ferries arriving to the French region. The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, particularly due to its modernist architecture. See the landmark Pont de la Normandie, spanning the river linking Le Havre to Honfleur, another city in the region.
Rouen is another brilliant destination on your Normandy escape, the vibrant capital of the region, located on the River Seine. Explore Rouen’s historic quarters; relax across the city’s riverside gardens; admire the gothic and renaissance architecture and immerse yourself in the infectious cultural life here.

The Mont Saint-Michel island is a popular area of the region to explore, located about one kilometre (0.6 miles) off the country’s north-western coast. The island, landmark and UNESCO World Heritage Site attracts more than three million people each year, offering a beautiful bay, cobbled streets and a variety of restaurants overlooking the waters.
The Château de Falaise is a landmark in the region, located in the south of the commune of Falaise. The castle has been a protected monument since the 19th century, and today hosts guided tours for visitors.
The stunning, white cliffs and natural arches at Étretat are also renowned here, as a popular tourist and farming town in the Seine-Maritime department. Étretat is a photographer’s delight, with its epic cliffside views, and a picturesque resort for those seeking the calming, natural beauty across the tourist town.

Normandy is the perfect destination for blissful relaxation, with a little adventure on the side, if you do so desire. Enjoy the many coastal paths across the region and sample the mouthwatering, French cuisine on offer. In fact, the region is pure paradise for holiday-foodies – don’t miss out on the locally produced, world-famous cheeses which originated from the region, from camembert to livarot.
Normandy’s climate is warm with a fair amount of annual rainfall. The hottest month here is typically August, where temperatures average 23*C with around eight hours of sunshine. The weather across the region is extremely changeable, with most visitors choosing to explore the country in the summer months from May to August.
A cultural trip, romantic retreat or incredible family escape across the French countryside, Normandy is a fantastic destination, offering a unique experience depending on the time of year. Why not plan a winter getaway to the northern region of France? Enjoy idyllic winter walks, quiet, tourist-free attractions and the delightful, bustling festive markets.
