Normandy is found on the coastline of France, just across the Channel from the English capital, London. Some 600 km of coastline, which features sea cliffs, coves and bays sprinkled with pebbles and stretches of sandy beaches. Further inland, visitors will come across agriculturally rich countryside with crops and orchards as well as forests. Normandy is renowned for its delightful cuisine, which specializes in seafood, duck and cream, as well as the famous Camembert cheeses. Two great excursions to enjoy in Normandy include the Cider Road and Cheese Road.
And you cannot go to Normandy without visiting the world-famous Mont Saint Michel, an impressive 14th century abbey perched on a rocky pinnacle by the sea. Considered an architectural marvel, it is France’s third most visited monument, after the Eiffel Tower and Versailles. Normandy’s dreamy little harbours are also a sight to behold.
