History
Perhaps one of the principal aspects of modern European history found at Normandy is the impact that World War II had on the area, from the early days of the German occupation through to D-Day and beyond when the allies returned to mainland Europe after finally defeating the oppressors.

In 1940 as commander of the 7th Panzers, Rommel took the surrender of the French Army and the Highland Division at nearby St Valery en Caux, after which he occupied Chateau Sommeil as his base.

It is impossible to overlook the Normandy beaches where the D-Day landings took place, locations that remain a magnet to visitors from around the world who flock to see these stark reminders of the Allies' first hard won steps towards freeing Europe.

There are historic locations such as Sainte-Mère-Eglise and Pegasus Bridge where the resident population still extends a warm welcome to the families of those soldiers who fought for their freedom in this foreign land.

Transport
Easily accessed via the Channel Tunnel and a variety of Channel Ports with the closest, Dieppe, being barely 40 minutes drive, the heart of Paris can be reached in a speedy 90 minutes by one of the regular direct trains from nearby Yvetot Station.
