The Normandy region
The Pays de Caux is a wonderful locality to explore with excellent seafood restaurants along the coast, good shops (Dieppe and Rouen particularly) and many places to visit. Good bathing all along the coast and facilities for sailing, tennis and horseriding locally.
Dieppe is a historic port with excellent pedestrianised shopping and good restaurants round the harbour. There is a fine art and ivory museum in the Château and many places of interest to visit nearby like the Jardin des Moutiers (a fine English styled garden) or the Maison de Jehan Ango, the château home of a pirate and one of Dieppe's most historically flamboyant characters. There are many beautiful abbeys to visit along the coast, including the Abbey of Fécamp with its Benedictine museum. Also, Etretat, with its amazing cliffs, should not be missed and is a wonderful day out.
