The Basse-Normandie region

The Normandy scenery is stunning and there are beautiful rivers, gorges, forests, lakes and miles of sandy beaches for you to explore.

We are close to many historical sites such as the chateau in Falaise, Bayeux (tapestry), the Normandy landing beaches, Pegasus bridge, the chateaux and abbeys in Caen.

Nearby are the lovely seaside towns of Trouville, Deauville and Honfleur and further inland we have the pretty towns/villages of Pont d'Ouilly, Clecy, Domfront, Caen, Flers and Falaise.

Normandy is famous for its cider production, calvados and pommeau, the cheeses of Camembert and Pont L'Eveque, local goats cheese, cream and honey. You can try and buy the produce direct from the farms.

For the children there are lots of theme parks, zoo's, maize mazes in summer, tree top adventure parks, swimming pools, ice skating, boating, fishing, walks, climbing, museums, beaches and lakes.
