Map View
Normandy is one of my favorite regions of France. It is luscious green and beautiful. There is the ocean to provide wonderful seafood, but the grass feed the Normandy cows which provide amazing butter and cheeses. Not to be outdone are also the apples which go into everything from pies to alcohol. It is a bountiful region with very friendly people, especially to Americans as there is deep history with WWII.
Save Place
14710 Colleville-sur-Mer, France
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...

La Cave de Beuvron is located in Beuvron-en-Auge one of the main stops on La Route du Cidre in Normandy, a driving circuit that is breathtakingly beautiful. The shop owners are extremely friendly folks and very knowledgeable on the area, they are...

Place de la Cathédrale, 76000 Rouen, France
Beneath the Gothic stone lacework of the south façade of Rouen's cathedral, a fruit-market sets up for business on a rainy autumn day. (for the 'markets' theme, 22-28 March)

3 Le Château, 14610 Fontaine-Henry, France
One of the few chateaus that I have been to outside of Loire, the Château de Fontaine-Henry is located in Normandy and I basically stumbled upon while out and about explore the backroads of this beautiful region. It is unique in it is one of the...
Save Place
5 Avenue des Tilleuls, 14340 Cambremer, France
Beyond its rich history, Normandy is perhaps best known for its local specialties - salted caramel, creamy milk, a variety of pungent cheeses and heady cider. One of the best spots in the region for the latter is at Pierre Huet in Cambremer where...
Save Place
27370 Saint-Germain-de-Pasquier, France
In Normandy, driving back to Paris from a day at the coast, we passed through St.-Germain-de-Pasquier. This village of about 150 inhabitants has the distinction of having the smallest 'mairie' (town hall) in France--definitely 'petite,' at only...
Save Place
Rue du Bienvenu, 14400 Bayeux, France
Experience one of the best Cathedrals in Europe. We went to Bayeux to see the tapestry and discovered this amazing place and were blown away when we got inside. If you go to Normandy do not pass this town, the Bayeux tapestry, 70m of tapestry...
Save Place
Château d'Audrieu, 14250 Audrieu, France
Dining at the Relais & Chateau restaurant inside the Château d' Audrieu is a wonderful fine dining experience. In reality, there aren't a ton of fine dining restaurants in this part of France, so it is a nice change if you are visiting for a week....
Save Place
Rue du Bienvenu, 14400 Bayeux, France
The Norman town of Bayeux has their own famed basilica and cathedral (the second largest of its kind in France, behind the one on the Paris) and it's well worth the trip while you're in town seeing the Bayeux Tapestry or waiting for your pick-up...
