Evidence of Normandy’s rich medieval heritage can still be seen throughout the region today, in its superbly preserved half-timbered houses, castles and religious buildings. Normandy became a popular seaside destination thanks to the benefits of sea bathing along its 600km of coastline during the 19th century. Its elegant seaside resorts have successfully preserved their Belle Epoque spirit, as illustrated by their magnificent listed villas. While historic architecture has its own charm, it’s no secret that modern architecture is inspiring too in Normandy.

An easy drive from Normandy’s busy towns and cities, the wildest of natural environments await you. A nature lover’s dream, Normandy boasts four Regional Natural Parks, some recognised by UNESCO.  Take the time to explore Normandy at your own pace, a destination with incredible natural surroundings and endless cultural treasures to uncover.
