Basse & Normandie regions of France are situated on the north coast, on the Manche or English Channel.

Lots of history in this area particularly WWll, beautiful beaches & never ending flat countryside. The sky is so large here!

Only being couple of hours of Paris, which makes Normadie ideal for day trip from Paris.

    Mont St Michel is so impressive. I haven't been there since I was a kid, but I wish to visit it again. Nice page as usual ;-)

    Thanks for the great stuff on this lovely part of France. We have seen much of the area but missed Honfleur so far - a good excuse to go back. I like the apple cider as well as the Calvados. Last fall in this area I had apple tarts 4 days running!
