The Normandy region
Haute- Normandie is famous for its tranquil country villages, but also for the bustling coastal cities such as Dieppe. You can sample the fresh fish at Dieppe's famous Saturday fish market, or take in the many restaurants by the quayside. The city boasts a fine Gothic church, St. Jacques, a castle museum overlooking the beach, and many fine shops along the main boulevard. For a coffee and chat the famous Cafe des Tribunaux is situtated in the centre.
Out of town there are many sights to see. The magnificent ruins at Arques-La-Bataille are well worth a visit. Small secluded beach coves are to be found all along the coast. Inland there are many small hamlets where you can see the varied local architectural styles and sample local produce. There are opportunites for cyclists to range as far as their legs will carry them along the routes vertes which pass through the region.
Festivals abound in Normandy, celebrating the local foods and beverages (cheese and calvados). Almost every small town has some festival each week bringing the locals together and attracting tourists. The local markets will often close the whole village to cars as they lay out all maneer of goods for sale or display (including vintage tractors in my local village of Bailly-en-Rivier
