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.
