The current international health crisis has been challenging for us all, and we know that many of you have had to postpone your trip to Normandy. On 28 October, a second nationwide lockdown was announced in France, making it uncertain as to when international travel will be back on the cards. One thing is for sure – we’re longing to see you again and hope to welcome you back to Normandy as soon as it’s safe! 

THE Covid-19 PANDEMIC

The global Covid-19 pandemic has made it inadvisable to travel to Normandy at present. Lockdown was lifted in France on 11 May and we were able to welcome international visitors back to the region for five months. However, a second national lockdown was then announced by the French government on 28 October.

Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by this virus. Better days will come. In the meantime, we hope you’ll find inspiration on this website for your next holiday once it’s safe to travel again.
