My Dream Fall Getaway. Road Trip Through Normandy

For me, Normandy in autumn evokes images of the apple harvest, cider and the best thing that ever happened to brandy, Calvados. Normandy begs to be driven through to be experienced - the famed Cider Route and a harvest festival to start with. Then it would off to take in the natural beauty of the landscape that inspired Monet , visit quaint towns, breathe in the sea air, feast on the bounty of fall harvests, and step foot on hallowed grounds steeped in history.

The cemetery site is a memorial to those whom lost their lives in the D-Day landings and ensuing operations. The spot sits on a cliff overlooking Omaha Beach and the English Channel and it quite beautiful. You can't help to feel drawn in by the...
Save Place
50170 Mont Saint-Michel, France
It's safe to say there’s nothing in the world quite like this magical island, topped by a medieval monastery that rises out of the bay like a heavenly apparition. It’s said that, early in the 8th century, a bishop in nearby Avranches...
