Travel Guide to Normandy Province in France

While many people will head for the lively Normandy coast, which has over 600 kilometres of coastline, the Norman countryside, with its prairies, wooded valleys, plus beech and pine forests, remains a haven of peace and tranquility for those that want a quiet time getting back to nature and away from it all.

The little villages, leafy lanes and clear streams are the ideal setting in which to relax and rediscover the joys of nature in unspoilt Normandy.

Normandy Province of France

Normandy, with its many rivers, offers people a choice of a quiet day fishing or for the more adventurous, how about a day in the canoe.

You can also stroll along the riverbanks admiring the old abbeys, or take a short trip along country lanes where you are bound to find fresh produce to buy from the many small farms dotted around.

Of course, Normandy is famous for the beach landings in World War ll and the monuments, military relics, cemeteries, milestones and the beaches themselves are visited by millions every year and serve as reminders of the battles that took place. 

In fact, some beaches were actually named in the War (the British beaches were the Sword, Juno and Gold and the American beaches were the Omaha and Utah Beaches) and these names have remained in place till today.

Yet the west coast of Normandy is sheltered from the east and north winds, benefiting from the warm currents of the Gulf Stream.  You will find around 100km of sand, occasionally interrupted by rocks and harbours, and it is here that you find the sunniest beaches and the sea a beautiful shade of deep blue.
