Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

This is the land of rural agricultural Normandy with miles of apple and pear orchards, magnificent in blossom season, as well as extensive sandy coastlines still quite undeveloped and perfect for enjoying a relaxing day at the beach. Everywhere there are reminders of the history of this region with famous chateaus and cathedrals and, of course the Normandy Landing Beaches. Le Mont St Michel, one of the most visited attractions in France dominates the landscape with its magnificent spires and turrets rising from white sands and tidal bay. A number of old towns and cities with their own specialties are well worth a visit such as Villedieu-Les-Poeles, long famous for its copper industry, and the Musee Regional du Cidre in Valognes. Granville has a huge Mardi Gras celebration each year and the medieval town of Domfront has its annual festival. Besides calvados and camembert, there are many local traditions and delicacies, galette Normande is well worth a try! Monet's gardens at Giverny are a must for garden lovers and Rouen with its history, tied to Joan of Arc, is yet another fantastic. The question is not what to do but where to begin and what can be omitted while still enjoying a relaxing and stimulating visit!
